Ardmore Music Hall
Over the past few weeks, a sublime musical connection went on tour, hitting a series stages throughout the northeast: Psychedelic groove band Circles Around The Sun performing with lead guitarist Scott Metzger. This past weekend, the foursome took the show to none other than Ardmore Music Hall, where they played to a packed, super receptive crowd, playing one of their best showings yet.
Circles Around The Sun was always and will always be the musical baby of celebrated rock and roll musician Neal Casal. But CATS, as they go by for short, is still as much the musical journey of band members Adam McDougall, Dan Horne, and Mark Levy. The three have put miles and muscle into popular jam scene groups like Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Grateful Shred, and The Congress, but Circles continues as their singular, collective, and unique creation.
The spirit of the Grateful Dead community is alive at the Ardmore Music Hall this winter! The mainstay venue for Philadelphia area Deadheads and more will play host to several Dead-oriented shows throughout the late winter and early spring including Splintered Sunlight, Voodoo Dead ft. Steve Kimock, Grahame Lesh and Cris Jacobs’ Philly Shakedown, and more!
Starting in 2010 on New York City subway platforms, a decade later, Moon Hooch is wowing audiences throughout the world. Horn players Mike Wilbur & Wenzl McGowen along with drummer James Muschler, the trifecta is a group that is best experienced in the live setting. On Friday, January 24th, Moon Hooch will bring what they like to call “cave music” to The Main Line, Ardmore Music Hall. This night is going to be an all-night dance party.
Waynard Scheller and Rainbow Full of Sound (RFoS) play Grateful Dead songs, and they’ve been doing so for a while – 300 shows’ worth. But this year’s tour will come with a very special twist: they are going to recreate the Dead’s legendary 1972 tour of Europe, tracing the path of twenty-one shows from England to Denmark to Germany to France to the Netherlands and back to England.
All four band members: Marc Brownstein & Aron Magner (Disco Biscuits), Tom Hamilton (Joe Russo's Almost Dead), and Mike Greenfield (Lotus), all have busy schedules, but when they come together as one force, “Electron”, they are on point. With many years under their belt in the “jam world”, they feed off of their energy and their little non-verbal to create a sound of their own. Whether it be Magner tickling the ivories, or Hamilton shredding it on guitar, the foursome is always firing on all cylinders.
It’s amazing what two people onstage can produce when it comes to music. Borahm Perry and Adam Deitch, together known as Break Science, will bring their high energy dance party to Ardmore Music Hall, on The Main Line, on Friday evening.
Friday will be one of three East Coast dates (five dates total) that is scheduled for the duo.
