The Hard Rock Café Philadelphia and entertainment booking agency, Mole Street Artists, has teamed up to bring a new, dynamic live music program to the Philadelphia's concert calendar.
Philadelphia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/29/2016 --The local music scene is experiencing a vibrant resurgence in Center City, proving that The City of Brotherly Love has much amour for Philly music.
Since January 1st, The Hard Rock Café Philadelphia and entertainment booking agency, Mole Street Artists, has teamed up to bring a new, dynamic live music program to the city's concert calendar.
Mondays at The Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia in January and February saw the launch of Soul Sessions, hosted by nationally-renowned pianist, Luke Carlos O'Reilly. A highly respected Jazz, R&B, Gospel and Latin pianist, composer, arranger and performer, each week Luke and his house band set the tone with R&B and soul jams to entertain the crowd with an invitation for special guests and audience members to join them on stage.
Recent guests have included saxophonist, Korey Riker (who works with artists such as John Legend, The Roots, Queen Latifah and Elvis Costello) and worldwide touring jazz, R&B, Broadway and pop vocalist, Sonya Hensley.
The rotating line up of performers gives each night a different flavor and generates some musical fireworks. The best part? The Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia has just signed up for 2 more months worth of local soul on Mondays in March and April in 2016.
Local Philadelphia entertainment by Mole Street Artists has also included performances by West Chester's jazz/funk combo, The Sermon! and Philadelphia blues-rockers, The Brian LaPann Trio, along with folk artists, The John Byrne Band and The Molly Blooms—all at the Hard Rock Café Philadelphia. Also notable in February was World Music Night, hosted by DJ Oluwafemi with live musical guests.
"For us, it's about bringing people together to build deeper relationships and we believe music is the perfect catalyst to create an environment to make that happen" says Brian LaPann, co-founder of Mole Street.
