Stay tuneed, this year's musical performances to be announced soon!
Last year at 2012 Greenfest Philly:
Cheers Elephant - Dubbed "Chew It Up, Spit It Out, Rock and Roll," Cheers Elephant is a raw, rootsy, psychedelic pop rock quartet from Philadelphia, PA. Digging deep into three-part harmonies and arranging songs that'll make your dad's toe tap, your mom's hip shake, and your sister's heart throb. A style reminiscent of The Kinks, and combined with a sensibility of the modern age, the group's signature sound bleeds with British flare, American gusto, and all under the umbrella of catchy pop rock.
Mount Joy - With a sound that draws comparissons to Dr. Dog and The Growlers, Mountjoy has has been getting the Philly Music Scene moving for a few years now. This must-see band has been growing in size, dynamics, and sound.
Abstract Verses - Abstract Verses is a an experimental hip-hop band based out of Philadelphia searching to find the commonalities of modern jazz, math rock, and wordplay. They have a knack for weaving jazz guitar licks through poly-rhythmic soundscapes, all the while somehow upholding the merits of hip-hop and funk. High energy blended with psychedelic hysteria and tastefully crafted lyricism make Abstract Verses a worthwhile show to see.
You Do You delivers its own blend of funk, soul and Rock n’ Roll with help from Alex Baranowski of Philly indie band
The New Connection and Crills Wilson of Crills Wilson. The project, spearheaded by Katie Feeney (The Externals, White Summer) and Drew Parker also features Tony Unander on the drums and the band promises cameos and collaborations from a gaggle of South Philly pals. Think Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem with bigger characters and a belting, brunette diva at the helm –all genres are fair game and anything can happen.
