Music Feature 1 of 4
5th Street Stage
from 11pm to 7pm

Stolen Rhodes @ 7:20 PM

“The easiest way to describe Stolen Rhodes to someone who hasn’t heard them is to put them under the genre of classic rock. They could fit in with the Allman Brothers or Springsteen and have your dad, or even your grandfather, scratching his head wondering why he doesn’t remember these songs. It’s almost uncanny how a young band could capture the essence of a time period that precedes them by at least a generation, yet their other influences and experiences make them uniquely their own. They are, after all, anything but a copycat, tribute band.”

John The Conqueror @ 6:20 PM

Time To Go : This raw, bluesy old-school soul track is just one of many gems on Philadelphia trio self-titled debut album.
Brian Mansfield and Steve Jones / USA Today

Black Country? Blues? Deep Blues? Rock ‘n’ Roll? “The Good Life” is American music done with passion and care, drawing plenty from the past and gleaning just as much from the present. Whatever you call it, just make sure you have the windows down and stereo cranked. Deep fried and defiant, John The Conqueror demands you turn up and listen loud.
Black Grooves

 Sweet Leda @ 5:20 PM
Powered by Julie Cymek's sultry, commanding vocals and electrifying stage presence, "think Adele mixed with Mary J. Blige, with a certain South Of The Mason-Dixon Line ache that's all her own", Sweet Leda has earned a reputation as a "rising star," taking the diverse mid-Atlantic music scene by storm and becoming one of the most exciting and accomplished live acts around. With its rich blend of new school funk, soul, and pop, Sweet Leda's heartfelt original material has drawn comparisons to Joss Stone, Janis, Maroon 5, Edie Brickell, and even Led Zeppelin while garnering its very own stylistic label: "sexy smooth rock and groove".

Johnny Popcorn @4:20 PM 
Vocalist and songwriter, Hezekiah, is no stranger to the music industry with 3 full-length solo albums as a hip-hop artist. Feeling like he was neglecting his Southern Funk/Rock upbringing passed down from his parents from Kentucky and North Carolina, he felt inspired for something new and exciting to develop—ultimately settling in on a new found passion.
Bass guitarist and all-around producer, ...
Tone Whitfield a.k.a. Grumpy Smurf, has produced numerous songs for Bilal, Meshell Ndegeocello, Zap Mama, and others. Contrast to Hezekiah’s hip-hop background, Grumpy Smurf has always been a rock purist with an open mind.
Today, JOHNNY POPCORN is a crow on a mission. An alter ego that was inspired by Hez and Tone, who would jokingly put down fake names on open mic lists. When the host called out JOHNNY POPCORN, the crowd would chuckle in amusement. “I think we have a name for a band,” says Tone Whitfield.
If it’s riff-heavy, rolls off the tongue and is more filling, then it’s Johnny Popcorn

 BAAM! @3:20 PM

BAAM! is New York City’s premier Rock n’ Roll big band, bringing together six conservatory-trained jazz musicians and a self-taught singer/songwriter to create a distinctive and original sound. Rocking dance numbers, melodic love songs, epic rockers, and funky, jazz-infused grooves? You’ll find them all at one of BAAM!’s energetic—and wild—shows.

 Cold Roses @ 2:20 PM

Possessed by the honesty and raw energy of yesteryear's rock and roll, Philly's Cold Roses "sound like they're straight out of a Texas roadhouse with their old-style country rock/blues combo" (WXPN).
Cold Roses' distinctive blend of rock n' roll, soul, blues, punk, and americana delivered with genuine, thought-provoking lyrics and unique songwriting has made their sound a refreshing musical experience for a new generation. Whoever said rock and roll was dead must have just given up.

 Laura Cheadle @ 1:20 AM

Laura Cheadle Family Blues Band have many accomplishments under their belt opening for: The Jonas Brothers, Sister Hazel, Spin Doctors, Ryan Cabrera, Kasim Sulton, Terrence Simien, Garland Jeffreys, John Oates/Hall and Oates, Average White Band, Clarence Clemons III for Bruce Springsteens After Party and Constantine Maraoulis of American Idol. These South Jersey Natives and current Philadelphia residents have toured nationally and internationally everywhere from the East Coast/West Coast to London. The Cheadle's have appeared on 6ABC's "Tuned In" as the very first viewers choice, The "NBC 10" Show, the National reality show 'Next Great Family Band" on NBC/Cosi TV. Laura Cheadle was named a "Super Woman" in South Jersey Magazine for her active Charity Work. A very recent accomplishment: Laura Cheadle Family Blues Band just recently won "Best Indie Jazz/Blues Band of The Year" 2014 at Tri State Indie Music Awards sponsored by WXPN.
