Jimmy And The Parrots – For more than 12 years, JIMMY AND THE PARROTS have been channeling the music and party atmosphere of a Jimmy Buffett concert to delighted crowds all over the United States as well as the Caribbean, as well as headlining the “Meeting Of The Minds Parrot Head” annual conventions in Key West, Florida and continuing a year round schedule of performances. Leader Jimmy Maraventano also has a Philly connection, having written and performed the song “Symbol Of America” to honor the SS United States, once the world’s fastest ocean liner and now docked on the Philadelphia waterfront awaiting restoration. https://jimmyandtheparrots.com/
Past Masters: 50th Anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
On the 50th Anniversary of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album, PAST MASTERS is proud to present a very special LIVE music event in celebration of the most historic moment in rock. A hand-selected cast of musicians (including Broadway musical director Graham Alexander) will execute a note-for-note performance of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in its entirety with live string and horn sections. You’ll never hear a more accurate live performance of this album anywhere.
Caress of Steel City – A Tribute to Rush
Caress of Steel City is a Pittsburgh-based Rush Tribute Band, comprised of four hard “Working Men of Steel” with diverse progressive rock backgrounds. They play Rush songs from all eras, from the Zeppelin-esque tracks and progressive epics of the 70s, to the synth-heavy tunes of the 80s, to much more than “a glimpse of what’s beyond”. Their repertoire includes not only the popular hits but also some of the more obscure material, which will surely please Rush fans of all levels.
Lower Wolves – A Tribute to REM
Focusing on R.E.M.’s early period as a beloved college/alternative live act, Lower Wolves performs R.E.M. covers from the years 1981-1986. A typical set includes album tracks, singles and obscurities delivered with the energy and intensity that characterized R.E.M.’s shows in the early ‘80s.
