The Kalob Griffin Band
The Kalob Griffin Band
The Kalob Griffin Band, better known to its devoted fans as the KGB, is a Pennsylvania bred, Philadelphia based outfit of Americana rock n’ rollers who strive to provide listeners on and off stage with an energetic and unique “KGB family” experience. Kalob Griffin (vocals/guitar), Rob Dwyer (guitar/mandolin/banjo), Eric Lawry (drums/vocals), John Hildenbrand (keyboards/vocals), and Jonathan Davenport (electric/upright bass) create a sound and live show that’s built around a variety of influences, tapping into multiple genres. The crew and their close knit team are centered in what the great pioneers stood for-hard work, good times, and building a community.
Ali Wadsworth
Ali Wadsworth
Ali Wadsworth is the daughter of a rock musician/chemical engineer and a tapestry weaver. Life and her father's job brought her all over the world, including Moscow to study opera, musical theatre in exotic North Jersey and Jazz at The University of Vermont. Her rock band UNLIKELY COWBOY brought her to Philly, which split off into GOOD OLD WAR, and Ali joined forced with her sister and formed GOLDIEBOX and Philadelphia super-group FANTASY SQUARE GARDEN.

When these bands disbanded (as most bands do), Ali and her little sister Claire decided to give national television a try. The Wadsworth Sisters were asked to audition for NBC's The Voice, and spent the summer of 2012 living in a Los Angeles hotel singing and filming. Ali just finished her first solo record with mega producer Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Floating Action, Man Man, The Sheepdogs) which will be a collection of songs given to her by her favorite songwriters. Debut Solo Album release is scheduled for October 5, 2013. Ali spends her time singing patriotic songs at MLB games and shooting bows and arrows.
The Visitors
The Visitors
If you did know, The Visitors (formerly Emmett Drueding and his Band) are a neo-gospel cowboy alien band from Philadelphia, PA. Started in the summer of 2012 by Emmett Drueding (acoustic guitar, vocals), Alex Drust (lead guitar), Ray Bailey (upright bass), and Harry Metz (drums, percussion), the band formed around their shared fascination with the unknown. After extensive field work, the group began writing songs about their research of “haunted” woods, abandoned buildings, and UFO crash sites. The result? Tunes about cults, abductions, macabre medical institutions, and of course—for purpose of human relation—bad habits, psychological breakdowns, and passionate love. The Visitors do not exist online, they are being watched, and not until they finish their album (sometime in the Summer of 2014) will they permit themselves to exist beyond utterance. And now you know.
