From Clients

“We couldn’t have been more pleased with our PhillyBloco experience.  They were professional, courteous, arrived on time, and the music was
exceptional.  They really knew how to get the crowd going, and even honored a special last second scheduling request I had.  I recommend them without reservation.”

“A live PhillyBloco performance is not to be missed and never forgotten.  The group brought a rollicking, rhythmic experience to Newtown Elementary School that had every single child, parent, and teacher on their feet.  The performers are tight and energetic, with an innate sense of the music that makes you feel as though you just visited Rio!”

-Kellyann Z.
Newtown Elementary School


“Four ways you know a band is awesome:

1. You take off your shoes and dance barefoot at North Star Bar.
2. You don’t feel the need to drink a single drop of alcohol all night.
3. You have to dance the limbo to avoid getting hit in the head with a slide trombone.
4. You want to sign up for drumming lessons when the night is over….”
