Greg Sover’s “My City” Release party to Benefit North Light Community Center
Featuring the Greg Sover Band – Allen James, Garry Lee, Tom Walling and special guest Wally Smith. With Jeannie Brooks, Richard Bush, Deb Callahan, Lizanne Knott, Kenn Kweder 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.
Greg Sover Band
Greg Sover Band
Greg Sover is making his mark in the city of Philadelphia. The singer, guitarist and songwriter released his debut album “Songs of a Renegade” last year. WXPN has spun Greg’s original song “Moment” as well as his cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine,” both from the album. He had a successful CD Release Party at World Cafe Live and has also headlined other venues in the area including Puck and Steel City Coffeehouse. He’s had the opportunity to support the Marcus King Band at World Cafe Live and Johnny A., Garland Jeffreys and Rusted Root, all at Sellersville Theater. Sover’s early success is due in large part to his band of three Philly veterans with extensive resumes – bassist and album co-producer Garry Lee, guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling. The three are best known as Deb Callahan’s solid backing band and their cohesiveness as a unit enabled Sover to develop as an artist and take his music to the next level. Greg is excited about officially releasing “My City” at this special event.
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.
