Greg Sover Band
Join us for Greg Sover’s “Jubilee” Release Party, featuring the Greg Sover Band with special guests Wally Smith, Mikey Junior and a string section in a co-bill with The Peace Creeps.

2018 has been a very exciting year for Greg Sover. Greg’s long-awaited EP “Jubilee” was released on January 8th. And the Greg Sover Band competed at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in January, making it into the semifinals and showing everyone in attendance that the band from up north in Philly sure knows how to play the blues.

“Jubilee” has been getting airplay locally, nationally and internationally and is ranked #2 in The Roots Music Report's Top 50 Blues Rock Album Chart for the Week of February 3. And Greg has three songs from “Jubilee” in The Roots Music Report's Top 50 Blues Rock Song Chart for the Week of February 3: “Emotional” at #1, “As the Years Go Passing By” at #23 and “Jubilee” at #38.

And the great reviews for “Jubilee” have begun:

“Sover’s new E.P. is a follow-up to his awesome 2016 debut, ‘Songs of a Renegade.’ This is an extremely well-played gaggle of tunes, blues and otherwise, a true celebration… Greg Sover is a solid singer, emotional without giving in to histrionics, and he’s a really freakin’ good guitar player… Sover and his guys pack a lot of emotional oomph into the 7 tracks that make up Jubilee. Great songs that really touch you where it counts…” 
– The Rock Doctor by John Kereiff – January 26, 2018

“The Blues comes in many, many variants and we will each have our favourite format; but the slick voiced singer and red hot guitarist easily straddles the Soulful Rhythm and Blues style that I’ve loved for 40+ years. Think a pumped up George Benson or Robert Cray…”
– The Rocking Magpie – January 15, 2018

“Jubilee” is once again produced by Greg Sover Band bassist Garry Lee along with Sover. Sover’s band of Philly heavyweights with extensive resumes also includes guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling. The three are best known as Deb Callahan’s solid backing band.
The Peace Creeps
The Peace Creeps
The Peace Creeps is the current musical project featuring former A’s captivating frontman Richard Bush. Richard and his A’s were the darlings of Philly in the ‘70s and early ‘80s and had the hits “After Last Night” and “A Woman’s Got The Power”, which was later recorded by both Clarence Clemons and Jennifer Holliday. They released two albums on Arista Records and toured nationally, but they disbanded due to disputes with their record company. After that Bush had a few other bands and then took a long hiatus to write and record. Finally, along with guitarist John Marchiano, bassist Roy Fisher and drummer Jeff Pancoast, The Peace Creeps were born. Bush and song writing partner, AJay McLaughlin’s clever lyricism, along with their Elvis Costello–like wit, Faces–like looseness and the pop sensibilities of the Beatles are reasons for their appeal. Their second album, the backward looking/forward sounding, “Time Machine” is available at CD Baby.
