West Philadelphia Orchestra
West Philadelphia Orchestra
With a diverse line-up of professional Philadelphia musicians whose influences range from Sun Ra to Bulgarian brass bands, West Philadelphia Orchestra is a unique live ensemble in today’s auto-tuned musical world. They began playing Romanian ballads, Macedonian folk-dance songs, Bulgarian wedding music, and Klezmer in late 2006, and have continued expanding their repertoire of Eastern European music. The band also plays original tunes which blend other sounds, like jazz and classical, together with traditional Balkan sounds. As much a community as a band, WPO’s performances are celebratory events. With blistering beats and walls of brass, they inspire audiences to hold hands, gyrate, howl, and otherwise slip the yoke of the homogenized culture industry.

Red 40 and the Last Groovement
Hawaiian Punch's got nothing on the juice this tangy outfit's got dripping down their legs. Red 40 & The Last Groovement is a little naughty, a little trashy, and a lot of sexy. Like the legendary yeti, appearances of their funk/disco/R&B pop up like art stores in Williamsburg. R40&TLG was recently seen upstaging the fireworks at Race Street Pier's July 4th celebration, rocking the fringe bar at Underground Arts, and confronting Catholic school memories with Sister Martha Graham Cracker at her cabaret. Red is also available for your child's next birthday party.
