This past year or so, we here at The Key have become major boosters of the musically proficient troupe, Hezekiah Jones. In that time they have been playing all over Philadelphia; from an appearance at the Key Sessions Live concert at World Cafe Live last September, to a few sets at the Philadelphia Folk Festival this past weekend. This group of folk ‘n beat musicians is a constantly-rotating collaboration of over 30 performers. They will be the featured artist in this week’s Tuesday Tune-Out at PhilaMOCA curated by Folkadelphia‘s Fred Knittel. Tickets to this all ages show are $5 at the door; the performance starts at 8 p.m. followed by a film screening chosen by Hezekiah Jones frontman Rafe Cutrufello, who is a big sci-fi buff. UPDATE: Hezekiah Jones’ appearance at Tuesday Tune-Out has been cancelled due to illness.
Funky Philadelphia jazz collective, Swift Technique will be playing a show tonight at The Blockley. Their ability to combine old favorites of jazz and funk with a modern R&B curvature makes them a group then everyone can enjoy. They recorded a Key Studio Session with us earlier in July which you can check out here. Also playing at The Blockley are The Stooges Brass Band, a contemporary brass band that is recognized for their high energy and traditional “N’owlans” sounds. Tickets to this 21+ show are $6-8, the performance kicks off at 8 sharp. Check out a video taken by The Swollen Fox of Swift Technique performing at The Blockley back in December.
