8-10pm: New Pony - Blues/ Funk/ Roots

Upon first hearing New Pony it's understandable that most assume the band is made up of a group of transplants from New Orleans. The way these guys can tear into some vintage New Orleans funk leaves little doubt that they've got some bayou water in their soul. But the truth is that New Pony is home-grown from Philadelphia not New Orleans. Still, the overall impression from listening to these guys will make you swear they grew up playing in the dark and greasy dive bars of the crescent city. Philly may be bookended by the Delaware and Schuykill rivers, but it's the big muddy Mississippi and the dark waters of the bayou that flows through the heart and soul of this band.

I can still feel that kaleidoscope of sound, and I want to bring it to you each and every Sunday.

11pm-12am: The Plums - Rock

"...York rock’n'roll outfit The Plums are either the hardest working or hardest partying band in Pennsylvania, perhaps both. Two members were at the venue hours early, propping up the bar and downing whiskey, fully loaded in before the techs had even arrived. As previously mentioned, their drummer played with Kyle Morgan... willing to work with anyone like their heroes in The Band. The comparison is not too far-fetched either, with 5 part harmonies... demonstrating technical proficiency of which most young bands can only dream. They brought PA equipment just in case, and had to trim down their typical all-night bar set substantially to even fit in the allotted time." -Dave Fox, musicwithoutlabels.com
