images/2017/10/16062.jpg
www.reverbnation.com/newpony
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.

Circular Time is a tight, blues, cross-over band—with a powerful horn section- that performs blues, jazz, funk, zydeco, afro-pop, reggae, soca, and classic rock. The core part of the group has been together since 1998. They can move from a hard-edged blues, a beat, a transition, to a soca that might incorporate a dash of samba, or merengue, followed by a funk, or an original house/afro-pop, to a Coltrane, or a Albert King ballad or a Herbie Hancock.

DJ FOLS is a DJ who has been around for a while and is based out of Brooklyn, NY. He specializes in all types of music from African tunes (Nigerian, Ghana, Coupe Decale, Soukous), to current hip-hop music to old school jams, reggae/dancehall, soca. These are just to name a few. He does it all – weddings, birthday parties, parades, baby showers, in-house parties and is definitely a regular on the club scene. As a professional DJ and also someone who grew up in a music-oriented household, he has perfected the art of assessing his crowd and selecting and belting out tunes that keep them on their feet until the “party done”.
