XPresidents -Philadelphia  time: 10:00pm


Music is singular to the individual: We each bring something to the table the others don't have, and together we create something that is unique. If you were to take a cross-section of who we are, and what we do, you'd find permutations of that which has already been done: At the core, we're a power trio, and an MC fronts the band. Growing up in the late 90s, early 2000's unfortunately I remember that era of bands categorized as 'rap-rock' (..and zero guitar!!); yet none of those bands were equipped with a neo-soul wizard on the keys. Conversely, there are many r&b outfits that dabble in hip hop and soul; yet, I've yet to see one with a lead guitar player blowing LA rock guitar through a Marshall stack. We deal in rock, jazz, funk, reggae, neo-soul, and we play live. We can take to any stage, in any circumstance and do what we do without the aid of a computer. It's real, and that in and of itself, I believes sets this band apart. Marv has a story to tell, we help him tell it. There are 4 different versions to this story, and what I've laid before you is simply how I see it….


Miss Fareira - Philadelphia  time: 9:00pm


I am a singer/songwriter looking to make a break. I love music -All types of music. Come visit often to get updates on shows I will be playing and youtube updates!! thank you for all your support! ♥ ♥ ♥


Justin Angelo Lancaster PA time: 8:00pm


“Angelo’s main influences are John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band and Jason Mraz, which are reflected in his laid-back music. Angelo’s demeanor is reminiscent of singer-songwriter Jack Johnson, as he speaks calmly and thoughtfully about the importance of staying humble, knowing yourself and mindfulness — especially in terms of his music.”

Norton Scott Star Vehicle Philadelphia, PA time: 8:00pm


Jersey born Norton Scott writes songs with the intention that the next one you hear becomes a new favorite. His music immerses listeners into a life lived with uncommon emotional depth, swept away by complex relationships and world events, always seeking an underlying truth to tether the soul. What you hear is all him; there are no overdubs. Scott uses two mics clamped together with one connected to a harmonizer to achieve his rich, unique sound.
After years of fronting local alternative rock acts while quietly pursuing a writing career, Scott returned to the start and stepped out from behind the curtain of his co-opted rock persona. Now residing in Philadelphia (by way of Los Angeles and New York) he's built his "star vehicle" not only to reach further frontiers of exposure, but also new heights of ecstatic escape, universal truth and general understanding. If nothing else, he's learned at last that flying into the unknown is often its own reward.

Drawing inspiration from Led Zeppelin, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alan Stone, Phish, Tool, and many others, Bazmati Vice’s sound is a testament to both the different musical tastes and the creative energy of each member of the group.
By the Fall of 2015, the group had played a few gigs on and around Haverford’s campus, but it wasn’t until adding guitarist Chris Jackowski that Bazmati Vice achieved its complete form. Over the past two years, the band has expanded off-campus and performed shows in Fishtown, Manayunk, Ardmore, and Center City Philadelphia. Bazmati Vice embarked on their first tour last year through Upstate New York, and has two more tours planned in Boston and New York City in the coming months.
Performing live shows and writing inspired songs are the main focuses of Bazmati Vice. Gigging in the Philadelphia area has pushed the band not only to perform at a higher standard but also to produce fresh new music that is as fun to listen to as it is to perform. The band released their self-produced debut LP last April and has more gigs than ever planned for the coming year in the Philadelphia area and the Northeast!



Lemera Neta - Vineland, NJ.   time: 3:50pm


It was the spring of 2016, old friends gather, after various failed attempts at different musical projects. At first they thought of forming a band of covers to play in the bars of the New Jersey & Philadelphia area, but realized that they had many more ideas for original music, than desires to play covers. This truth was the beginning of Lamera Neta.
Javier Cruz, Santiago Martin, Andrew Acevedo and Sammy Santos joined their talents and their love for good music, wrestling, and tacos. With the past experiences in hand, they devised a new strategy, to which they put many kilos. Finally they managed to debut the past July 15, 2016, with their first music video and simple called "Phantom".
Lamera Neta is in the studio working on her second single "Endless" which will hit the market in mid-October 2016.

Josh received his music education from The University of the Arts with a degree in Guitar Performance and Music Education. Aside from receiving a presidential scholarship when admitted to the university, Josh was also awarded the Catherine T.

Since then they have been going non-stop in the music scene, gaining traction and sustaining success ever so rapidly.

These tracks would later be rerecorded in addition to newer material for the release of their first album "Visions", which would be released in 2012.
The local and personal success of constant performing of the groups early material at the time got them connected with Ted Richardson in Philadelphia, PA, with whom they produced the single "Sandy Eyes" in 2013, in response to Hurricane Sandy which tore through the bands home the year prior. The group then began opening up for such notable acts as Tracii Guns of (LA Guns, and Guns and Roses), and Doug Wimbish of (Living Colour), Hoobastank, even completing two national tours of their own. Now after four years of working on new music, touring, and working diligently, the band has once again teamed up with Richardson to release their second full length LP. The album is titled "Almost Lifelike" and was recently released be on June 21st, 2016. It brings out a much more mature level of craftsmanship in relationship to the bands early work, and they are eager for everyone to hear it. The first single "Empty Skeleton" has been made available for streaming along with the album on Spotify, SoundCloud, and bandcamp.
