You Do You
You Do You
You Do You is a 7-piece new wave, funk rock, party band from Philly known for their infectious beats and electrifying 70’s-era showmanship. Since forming in 2012, You Do You has drawn comparisons to artists such as Parliament-Funkadelic, Janis Joplin, Chic, Lady Gaga and Phish, and has supported an array of talented musicians that includes Robert Randolph & the Family Band, George Porter Jr. of the Funky Meters, the Dead Milkmen, Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas and many more.
Led by Katie Feeney’s raw, sultry vocal stylings, the band delivers a powerful performance characterized by tight chemistry and four-part harmonies, funky danceable grooves, and wailing melismas that land somewhere between Whitney Houston and Robert Plant. YDY released their second EP, “I Got Time,” in November 2014 and has since wowed local crowds at venues like Union Transfer, The Fillmore Philly, Boot & Saddle, World Cafe Live and more. The band released their third EP, Political Party, in July 2017 and is already working on material for a new 2018 release.

Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas
Life has a way of letting us know what we’re supposed to do and when we’re supposed to do it. We can distract ourselves, but life is persistent. Jessica Hernandez knows that. She knows that no matter what gets in the way, time won’t stop for anyone. Be it struggles or triumphs, Hernandez is ready for whatever, whenever.

This malleability expresses itself in so many facets of Jessica’s life. The first-generation American grew up in and around Detroit. There are few regions more impressing as the nitty-gritty of Rock City and it left its mark on the 25-year-old artist. Her voice is instantly recognizable. Its strength and soul are matched by an honest vulnerability. Whether she is singing heartfelt words about someone that has left this world too early, or belting out a danceable tune through a big smile, Hernandez is unforgettable… especially with the ultra-talented Deltas behind her.

Never one to adhere to norms or outside pressures, Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas have learned lesson after lesson along their rise as one of Detroit’s favorite bands. They’ve honed their craft in sell-out shows and tours than span the nation. It’s easiest to classify Hernandez by seeing the people that come to every show. All races, all ages, all fans of good music.
Conversations
A surfy indie band from Philadelphia, Conversations writes thoughtful and fun lyrics on top of a sea of summery rock grooves. Captivating harmonies and catchy hooks create songs about life, friends, and love. Performing for audiences from Texas to Maine, this four piece draws inspiration from The Beatles and Weezer alike. The group's much anticipated debut release Totally Redeem Yourself was released in 2015 and the band has performed with The Beach Boys, The Dead Milkmen, Dogs on Acid amongst many others.
