In its second year, Philly Sings Philly returns to The Fire every Tuesday night in November. Philly Sings Philly is about contemporary Philly artists covering songs by other Philly artist. So, it’s not solely a bunch of Philly musicians covering songs written by the artists in that same bunch of Philly musicians – those artists involved actually get quite creative. As long as it is Philly music then you might hear it covered on any given Tuesday night at The Fire during Philly Sings Philly. It’s that “anything is possible” vibe that makes Philly Sings Philly so much fun and an event that you owe yourself to experience.
Last night was the opening night of Philly Sings Philly and it was great. Ron Gallo opened the show and Ryan Tennis & The Clubhouse Band closed the show – with Sean Hoots, The Spinning Leaves, Suzie Brown, A Fistful of Sugar, Kiley Ryan and more playing as well. Some of the highlights from last night include: The Spinning Leaves covering Chubby Checker’s “Limbo Rock” with a limbo contest, Brad Hinton Band with a very rocked out version of “Albert Hash” by Hezekiah Jones, A Fistful of Sugar’s take on Boyz II Men was very entertaining, and Kiley Ryan’s cover of Chris Kasper’s (The Lowlands) “To The Other Side” was beautiful. All of that is only a very small portion of last’s night’s great show.
Thank you to Brad Hinton for organizing the Philly Sings Philly residency.
Hopefully I’ll see you next Tuesday (and every Tuesday in November) at The Fire for another night of Philly Sings Philly.
