Featuring the Greg Sover Band – Allen James, Garry Lee, Tom Walling and special guest Wally Smith. With Ross Bellenoit, Jeannie Brooks, Richard Bush, Deb Callahan, Danielia Cotton, Lizanne Knott and the North Light Community Center Singers

The Greg Sover Band is excited to celebrate the release of “My City,” a song that was written by Greg Sover as a tribute to the city of Philadelphia. In addition to Greg’s band, many professional Philadelphia artists, some of whom will perform at this concert, as well as some kids from North Light Community Center, sang on the recording. In honor of the great work that North Light Community Center does for children, teens and families in the Manayunk area, all proceeds from this event will be donated to North Light. We hope you’ll join us for an entertaining afternoon of music that supports this wonderful organization.

Artist lineup is subject to change.

Greg Sover Band
It has been an exciting year for the Greg Sover Band! We look forward to returning to World Cafe Live and our first opportunity to perform on the downstairs stage in support of Davy Knowles. The band is gaining momentum after a triumphant performance at Phoenixville Blues Festival on September 9th, for which the band got a standing ovation and was given an encore. After the band’s set there were brisk sales of Sover’s CD Songs of a Renegade and new fans were lined up at the stage for Sover’s autograph. The band also gained notice with a solid set at Philadelphia Folk Festival.

The band has also begun to get airplay across the U.S. and internationally. An astounding eight of the ten songs on Songs of a Renegade have gotten airplay, primarily in blues radio programming. And great reviews are coming in for Songs of a Renegade and the band’s dynamic live performances. This is some of what’s being said:

Talk about the total package – amazing guitar work, soaring vocals and a classic
rock feel… Every song crushes the competition, exposing the hidden talent that is
this Philadelphia blues rocker. He deserves a national stage for his music…
We don’t know why this artist has not become a huge star, but we are offering his
Songs of a Renegade our highest recommendation. Get it NOW!

Some people were born to play the guitar. That seems to be the case with Greg
Sover... Backed by some of the best in Philly – Allen James, Garry Lee and Tom

Walling, this is a band on the rise. “Moment,” “Déjà Vu” and their cover of “Ain’t No Sunshine” are highlights of the CD Songs of a Renegade. See them live in area
clubs now!
– Cyndy Drue, Radio Personality, WMGK, Philadelphia

A clean, polished album and a nasty, guitar-heavy live show... took everyone by
surprise...but knowing the A-Team involved in this project and Greg's musical
abilities, it shouldn't have been.
– Jesse Lundy, Talent Buyer, Point Entertainment

The band has also begun to record the follow-up to Songs of a Renegade with a planned release date of early 2018.
North Light Community Center
North Light Community Center
North Light Community Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the residents of Roxborough and Manayunk. They offer a myriad of services to children, teens and families in the area. From KidZone, an after-school program for pre-K to 6th graders, to mentoring programs for teens, to a computer lab for members of the community, to a food bank for those in need, North Light provides these services and so much more. Some kids from North Light’s summer camp were invited to record on “My City” with Greg Sover and the band. North Light has since adopted “My City” as their unofficial theme song.
