About the Band:
We are a mixture of some of hardest working musicians in the Philadelphia area specializing in a mashup concept, fusing the music of The Allman Brothers Band and The Grateful Dead. Each of us has multiple projects currently both original and not, but have formed a bond here with some of our favorite and most influential music, paying close attention to detail of all of the original music, while also incorporating the fire of our own improvisational musical contributions to create a very tangible symbiotic experience between the band and the listeners. There is nothing like coming back to pay homage to the music that inspired us all to play. In 2015 alone we have played the Ardmore Music Hall, The 8×10, Gypsy Sally’s, Tellus360, World Cafe Live, Penn’s Peak at Jim Thorpe, The Abraham Lincoln Hotel, and have shared bills with, Pink Talking Fish, Butch Trucks Freight Train Band, The Ron Holloway Band, Holly Bowling, The Cris Jacobs Band, Dead Phish Orchestra, Alan Paul’s Big In China with Ron Holloway as special guest, Splintered Sunlight, Good Lovin Jam Band, Andy Mowatt’s Steely Jam and more…

Marc Singer – Guitar and Vox,
Pat Kane- Guitar
Gene Isayev – Sax, Flute

steely jam 1

 

Meet and Greet Andy Mowatt’s Steely Jam here at Ripple prior to their show at Martin’s Downtown on Wednesday June 28th!!! It will be a casual low key affair full of fun and great conversation 🙂 Stop by and stay awhile!

About the Band:
“Consistently stellar” (Price, PA Musician Mag), “Andy Mowatt’s Steely Jam” is a funk-driven powerhouse from Pennsylvania, led by guitarist Andy Mowatt, “an absolute musical genius” (Devoy, Tellus 360) and “jazz-rock flamethrower on guitar” (Campbell, Gigspots). A fusion of New Orleans and Central PA, Mowatt’s “bright arrangements keep things sounding fresh” (PA Musician) and “inspire you to expand your mind and think outside the confines of traditional jazz, soul and funk!” (Robert, Positive Music Reviews). “Confident, to-the-point, and elegant” (Rocha, The Flinging Times), Andy and his group entertain and impress crowds with unique originals and modern twists on classic hits, “and yet, through many influences, each tune retains a sound that is distinctly Mowatt’s” (O’Brien, Fly Magazine).

grass is dead cover

Meet and Greet the members of The Grass Is Dead here at Ripple prior to their show at Martin’s Downtown on Thursday June 15th. They will be here chilling from 7-8pm so come say Hello! This is a social hour!!! It’s gonna be a partay!!! Come join the FUN!!!

About the band:

“What’s in a name? Sometimes, everything… Grass is Dead are a bluegrass combo paying homage to the music and cultural legacy of The Grateful Dead, arguably America’s first folk rock band and one of the most influential musical artists of the last 50 years. The catalogue of the Dead’s music is a gold mine for string bands and story tellers, and Grass Is Dead have established themselves far and wide as premiere purveyors of this rich tradition of Americana music. Pickin’ and grinnin’ is what they do best, and they have been adapting Grateful Dead songs in their own bluegrass style since 1998.

A festival favorite, Grass is Dead has built a loyal following from their home state of FL throughout the Eastern United States through burning live shows, and well beyond, through word of mouth, social media and old fashioned taper trees. The demand for Grateful Dead music is seemingly endless, and there are countless cover bands satisfying that demand on the local level, but there are not many artists out there approaching the music from the perspective of Grass is Dead. It is not complicated or artsy: this is a straight forward hootenanny built to last, and fans of either bluegrass music, The Grateful Dead, or both always leave happy, because sometimes there’s nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile…”

megan jean and kfb

“Meet and Greet” Megan Jean and the KFB here at Ripple prior to their show at Martin’s Downtown!! They were a FloydFest favorite in year’s past and they will be here chilling from 7-8pm so come say Hello! This is a social hour!!! It’s gonna be a partay!!! Come join the FUN!!!

About:

Megan Jean and the KFB, or Klay Family Band, arrange a demented blend of americana, punk, dance, and the avant-garde that they’ve taken to describing as, “a metal band, if it was 1927.”
Inventive percussion, electrified banjo, and a voice like the Devil Herself have earned Megan Jean and the KFB a dedicated following all over the East Coast. Calling the road home on a “never-ending tour,” this transient married duo has taken their nomadic musical lifestyle and transformed it into a kind of Voodoo that unites scenes, fans, and musical styles. This is a band that lives to perform, and is fueled by sheer guts and know how.
In April of 2012, the band was featured on PBS performing their original composition “These Bones” as part of a music documentary series Music Voyager, which broadcast internationally. In July of 2012 they were named the winners of the “Under The Radar Competition” at FloydFest in Floyd VA, which earned them a spot on the main stage in 2013. They have shared the stage with Shovels and Rope, Hurray for the Riff Raff, and Rising Appalachia. On March 1st of 2013, the duo released their 2nd full-length album, The Devil Herself, recorded at the Jam Room in Columbia, SC, and is currently recording their third album entirely analogue.
