Nothing Wrong
Nothing Wrong
Nothing Wrong is a seven piece band that draws on blues, rock, and jazz, adding soulful vocal harmonies and having as much fun as possible along the way. Based in the Philly neighborhoods of Mt. Airy and Manayunk, the band’s styling of danceable covers offers alternative versions for a fresh experience. What's always recognizable is the band's innate musical chemistry and fun they provide for their audience.

Anya Rose studied music and voice at Bard College, and jazz while living in Maine. She was a member of the Park Street Pickers in Bangor, which performed weekly at a local bar. Anya is now settled in Philadelphia where she studies samba drumming with Unidos da Fildelfia and performs as half of the duo, Ants on a Log. Her albums include, "Have You Seen My Hat?" and "You Could Draw the Album Art." Her inspiration comes from her students (she teaches elementary science) and from being a woman in a man's world. Anya's musical influences include Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Lake Street Dive, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Tom Lehrer, and the Wood Brothers. Grey Fox is her favorite music festival! Update: Anya recently started liking beer and is now lactose intolerant, so you can disregard the lyrics in "Pretty Often Right."
Mike Stevens has been studying, performing, and teaching Brazilian percussion for 19 years. During his frequent trips to Brazil he has had the good fortune to both perform and record with some of the top bands in Rio de Janeiro. He was co-musical director of Alo Brasil for 10 years, and is the founder and musical director of PhillyBloco and Unidos da Filadelfia, as well as the director of Brazilian Percussion Ensembles at the University of Pennsylvania. His musical influences include Monobloco, Bangalafumenga, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Gilberto Gil, Galactic, and many many more. In his spare time, Mike likes to make hummus and pretend he can skate ski. Fun fact: the Einstein shirt glows in the dark, and that is not Mike's real hair.
Ajibola Rivers a Nigerian-Cherokee (Nigerokee) performing artist from Lafayette Hill, PA. He received his cello performance degree from the Boyer College of Music and Dance in 2016. Using the cello as a foundation, Ajibola taught himself to play double bass and bass guitar. Despite his considerable music background, however, perhaps what is most prevalent about Ajibola is his highly utilitarian philosophy. His art serves his community, and in that service he pushes himself to at-times brutal limits. Ajibola believes, “It’s not about what you’ve done; it’s about what you do.” A true opportunist ever in deep thought, Ajibola Rivers lives today, ever-haunted by the dream of becoming a landmark legend tomorrow.
Joel F. W. Price is originally from Madison, Wisconsin, and now makes Philadelphia his home. Joel grew up playing classical violin since age four, then added mandolin while attending Swarthmore College. He has recorded and toured with ellipsis... and Eli Conley, and has appeared on video or onstage with CDZA, The Gregory Brothers/Schmoyoho, Humble Tripe, St. Anytime, The Guggenheim Grotto / Storyman, and Amy Vachal. In addition, Joel has been volunteering with Musicians On Call in Philadelphia since 2005. He makes kombucha, saurkraut, and kefir and will give you a scoby or a kefir grain if you ask nicely.
