The Looking Glass Revue Burlesque & Comedy Troupe "LIVE" Friday Sept. 27th @ TL DOBBS

For Tickets go to:

The Looking Glass Revue is an exciting Burlesque Troupe from the Lehigh Valley. Local business owner and designer of House of Minerva, Kate Elfatah has teamed up with award winning Burlesque performer and model, Mika Romantic to bring back the glamour and mystic of a remerging art form.  Kate Elfatah

takes the helm as producer while Mika leads the artistic visuals. With each show, The Looking Glass Revue will take you back to a simpler time, when showgirls and starlets reigned supreme.

The Looking Glass Revue started as a small monthly showcase at Lee Gribben’s on Main. After the shows consistently sold out, Kate and Mika began receiving offers from larger venues and producers, who were eager to book the high energy show. The show has quickly become a must see event and the place to be on the 1st Saturday of the month!
The troupe features resident MC- Jayson Simpson who hosts the show from start to finish with his charismatic and witty persona. Each show has a bevy of beautifully costumed performers, go-go sets, and a guest comedian.

In the Presence of Wolves is a Progressive Rock band that has been brewing in the minds of bassist Vini Stamato and guitarist Chris Capitanio since 2009. Wishing to do something different from conventional rock and local music, they chose to challenge themselves musically and creatively in a way that is totally different from other bands in South Jersey. After a series of setbacks and side projects, the two reconvened and got to work on their music. They embraced the freedom of prog music where they were free to experiment without labels or expectations. In 2012, they joined up with guitarist Justin Alexander and drummer Mason Ingling to solidify their lineup. Now, they're preparing to make waves and unleash their own brand of rock.

Sounds Like: Kamelot,  Opeth, Between the Buried and Me, Blind Guardian

Lör was founded by 5 kids in their senior year of high school. After releasing their first 5-song Demo and reforming their lineup, Lör has been playing shows in the Philadelphia area for over two years. We have opened for huge acts including the legendary Italian power metal giants Rhapsody of Fire at the Trocadero. The band released 'Requiem Demo' in 2012 and is set to release a debut full-length summer 2013!

Progressive Music Returns to Dobbs on 9/21 w/ Out of the Beardspace, iNFiNiEN, Dave Mackay Group, The Tea Club & Left of Logic

The Legendary Dobbs is so AMPED for this upcoming show that features nothing but Progressive Music! This is a show from start to finish that will expand your mind musically like no other. Below features the bands and their music. Check these amazing artists out!!!
Out of the Beardspace
Out of the Beardspace is a 6-piece experimental rock band from South Jersey. Influenced by greats such as Mahavishnu Orchestra, Miles Davis, Return to Forever, The Mars Volta, Yes, King Crimson, Bjork, The Beatles, Radiohead, Frank Zappa and Duke Ellington
Here is a recent video from 2013 Liberty Music Festival at the Legendary Dobbs


Dave Mackay Group (DMG) began as an experiment in sound; an attempt at combining some very different musical ingredients in a big pot with the hope of making some tasty musical soup. Over the past few years, the band's sound has evolved into a unique style of instrumental music which lives somewhere between the worlds of alternative rock, fusion and film soundtracks.

Here is the Dave Mackay Group - Clusion (Live @ Berklee Performance Center)  

Philadelphia based Experimental Progressive band. Exotic tonalities and thick chords mixed with Jazz, African, Balkan, Pop, Rock and Indian Music.
"Calling it "fusion" isn't even entirely correct, since that smacks of cocktail parties and easy-listening boredom. This is the sublimation of styles, a group of highly trained players sacrificing their training for the sake of something more exciting."-Philadelphia City Paper
Here is the iNFiNiEN's video for "Aquatica"  

"...Amazement flows through me as my mind attempts to understand how such a fine piece of awesome can simply exist... M is for Masterpiece..."
-Eric Zecchel, ProgArchives.com
"...Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson once stated in an interview that '...the Mars Volta, Tool, and Radiohead. . .are the future of progressive music.'
I would like to add The Tea Club to that list."
-Conor Fynes, Prog-Sphere.com
Here is The Tea Club - "Quickly Quickly Quickly" Album Teaser   

Left of Logicwww.facebook.com/pages/Left-of-Logic

Left of Logic is a hard-hitting rock electronica trio featuring Austen Royce Goodman on bass guitar, Dan Townsend on keytar, and Tim Knowlton on percussion.
Blending elements of modern electronic music with the raw power of live rock performance, their music launches audiences on an energetic and mind-warping musical thrill-ride.

Here is Left of Logic - Feel This To Survive (LIVE @ BAR EAST)

Dewey Beach Music Conference Sept 19th, 20th and 21st!

Dewey Beach, DE.

All Live Performances are No Cover at all Venues
The Rusty Rudder - Bottle N Cork - Jimmy's - The Port - McSheas - Gary's Bar & Grill

DBMC may not be the biggest music conference in the northeast, but it has garnered more than its fair share of critical acclaim, rave reviews and enthusiastic return participants. This is due in no small part to the consistent quality of talent and its location. Dewey Beach sits on a narrow peninsula between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay. The result is a casual, laid-back vibe that almost seems like a beach vacation. All performance venues are within a few blocks walking distance of the main conference area. No cabs, no hassle, no venues that are hopelessly disconnected from the center of activity.

Below are just a small sample of the Artists that will be performing at this years DBMC. and after the Artists there will be a list of the day time Music Industry Panels and Speakers.

Satellites FallBoston, MA.

“Imagine a brit-indie sound that mixes elements of The Killers with elements of The Cure.”
Alex Kantarelis - The Pulse Magazine

“Satellites Fall has released the blueprint for things to come. An exceptionally produced example of what happens when a group of serious and professional minded guys follow their hearts into the recording studio. Five tracks that sound a bit like a cage match between Radiohead, Coldplay and the Foo Fighters in which the quirkiness of Radiohead and the pop sensibilities of Coldplay come out on top.”
