7-9pm: 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.
