Swift Technique, Philadelphia’s fiery funk extravaganza, is sprinting into their ninth year at full speed! Their unique blend of funk, soul, rock, hip-hop and relentless showmanship has propelled the group into their most successful period to date. Featuring the powerhouse vocal tandem of Chelsea ViaCava and Nik Greeley, the band is releasing two new singles, “Lucky Bump” and “Reason to Be” to add to an ever-growing recording catalogue. With bombastic horns, thunderous bass and drums, driving guitar and keys, and more dance moves than you can shake a booty at, Swift Tech’s live performances are unmatched in energy, musicianship and pure feel-good fun. And with a recent appearance on the award winning Netflix series, Orange is the New Black, the group is commanding national attention.

After forming in 2007 Swift Technique has steadily toured, performed, and recorded all over the country. The band’s sound has evolved at every step, with the members constantly pushing their performing and musical limits.

They have successfully played at top-tier venues in some of the most musically rich cities in the country including: New York City, Boston, Baltimore, Washington DC, New Orleans, Nashville, Chicago, Cincinnati, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and of course, their hometown, Philadelphia.

The Trongone Band
The Trongone Band
Rapidly gaining momentum with a sound that falls perfectly between southern Rock 'n' Soul and Americana Jam, The Trongone Band is turning heads and making an impact on the east coast music scene. Formed as a family and by brothers Andrew and Johnny with father John Sr. on bass, The Trongone Band enlisted much sought-after keyboardist Ben "Wolfe" White and quickly began packing various venues around Richmond, VA. With the addition of Wolfe, they entrenched their footprint on the city with a Thursday night residency at Cary Street Cafe, pushing the popular music room to maximum capacity for two straight years.

Spreading their musical wings, it wasn't long before The Trongone Band procured a devout fan base and began making their name in neighboring cities, including sell-out shows in Blacksburg and Harrisonburg. Recently the band brought on award-winning bassist Todd Herrington to solidify their touring lineup. Herrington adds a crucial dimension of deep pocket groove and funk to the already seasoned unit.

As a collaborative effort, the band is set to push forward touring the East Coast and preparing for their full length debut album. This four-piece ensemble may not all be related, but with a chemistry so emphatically discernible, it's fair to call them brothers.
