Swift Technique
Swift Technique
Swift Technique, Philadelphia’s fiery funk extravaganza, is sprinting into their tenth 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 vocals of Chelsea ViaCava, the band has released two new music videos for their singles, “Lucky Bump” and “Reason to Be.” 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 shared the stage with all varieties of world-class acts including: The Meters, Wu-Tang Clan, Snarky Puppy, Charles Bradley, DJ Questlove, Soulive, Lettuce, Break Science, Fishbone, The Disco Biscuits, Turkuaz, The Motet, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, The Main Squeeze, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Kermit Ruffins, Deep Banana Blackout, Kung-Fu, Orgone, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and Sophistafunk. In the past year they’ve also debuted at multiple major festivals including: Camp Bisco, Disc Jam, Xponential Fest, Domefest, and Rock & Roll Resort. 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, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and of course, their hometown, Philadelphia.

Tweed
Tweed
Philadelphia's funktronica powerhouse, Tweed, is filling dance floors with their high-energy fusion of funk, rock, and electronica. Just as their namesake fabric of mingling colors and textures, Tweed has interwoven a psychedelic web of high energy performance and improvisation. With extensive touring and studio work in 2016, Tweed gained a national following and a uniquely cohesive sound. Their collaboration can take listeners from face-melting visions through the psyche to sweaty, raging disco parties driven by their own incessant beat.
Denizen
Denizen
Distilling the sounds of American music, Denizen hail from tradition but cut the edge on rock today. One listen to the band and you will find the door re-opened to rock, though you may need re-introduction. There's no clear way to capture their music by description even though it most definitely has something to say. In a world of synthetic beats, focus-grouped lyrics and test-tube pop stars, Denizen emerges as a clarion reminder that music is either live or else it's dead – is either fashioned organically, from real experiences of pain, loss, love, joy, spirituality…or else is just more static for the radio. They believe in themselves, they believe in their fans, and they believe their art has the power to unite both in some way. And that's why they've been out there night after night after night givin it all away.
