New Year's Eve with SNACKTIME (21+)
Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia
1009 Canal Street
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19123
SNACKTIME is Philadelphia’s revered seven-piece brass-heavy band with funk, punk, jazz, pop, and R&B influences. The band captures the soul of Philly, spreading a message of unity and love, while placing an equal emphasis on music, food, and community.
SNACKTIME was created out of necessity at the height of COVID, performing free shows in Rittenhouse Square and quickly amassing local and national notoriety. They have grown to become a symbol of positivity and cathartic release, showcasing the richness of Philadelphia’s music community from neighborhood festivals to 76ers halftime shows, and growing to performance slots at major festivals such as Firefly, Peach Fest, XPonential Festival, and the Adult Swim Block Party. They’ve been featured by NPR Music, Good Morning America, and The Today Show. Additionally, SNACKTIME develops its own food/music and community events, including curation of all entertainment at the Philadelphia Flower Show and collaborations with world class chefs such as Mike Solomonov, Jose Garces, and Michael Ferreri.
SNACKTIME is the heartbeat of Philadelphia, constantly giving back to charitable organizations throughout the city and placing an emphasis on the city’s youth culture. The band’s appearances in 2023 will include performances at Sea.Hear.Now, Life Is Beautiful, and Sound on Sound.
Olivia K & The Parkers
Olivia K & The Parkers is the brainchild of Olivia K, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and fearless leader. After playing such venues as Baby’s All Right and City Winery early on, OK&P exploded onto the scene at Sony Hall. Opening for Kermit Ruffins, the band turned a dumbstruck crowd into their congregation.
Now, OK&P are embarking on their next point of departure: The Sankofa Project! A meditative act of creation and closure, the OK&P crew intend to record Olivia’s entire catalogue of songs. Most of these were never put to track. In doing so, the band commits itself to the wisdom of the Ghanaian symbol, Sankofa. It reminds us: to move forward in these uncertain times, we must first confront the demons of the past. Within a month of announcing the project, the band blew past their crowdfunding goal.
When not in the studio, Olivia K & The Parkers are still electrifying venues across NYC and beyond. Their all-Brooklyn fusion of soul, jazz, gospel, and art rock speaks to expansive minds and righteous spirits everywhere.
