OOLALA is a band that travels on gravity and is, therefore, unbound in its cosmological studies of the universe through ROCKROLL. Free to experience all points in space, all forms of energy, all states of matter, and all times in time, fully and simultaneously, their vibrations are the stuffs from which everything is made and un-made.
The Ardvark Felon
The Ardvark Felon
Frank Velardo is a very unique blues guitarist and songwriter. Since he started playing at age 12, he has been writing songs, improvising and performing. Now at 26 years old, he has developed a very authentic and personal voice that stands humbly alongside those that have come before him. For his own project, he is an incredible front-man with a commanding stage presence. As a side-man, he is professional and supportive. In both cases, he is as entertaining to watch as he is to listen to.

Trying to sound like his idols, mainly Clapton and Hendrix, functioned as a terrific gateway into the world of improvised music. It lead to heavily studying jazz, theory, rhythm, harmony world and avant-garde music and in 2010, Frank graduated from Temple University with a degree in Jazz Performance. He performs regularly around Philadelphia, and he teaches guitar and piano to diverse group of students.

In October, 2012 Frank released his first collection of original music, The Ardvark Felon. It is comprised of original tunes that not only showcase his ability as a guitarist and vocalist, but also as a composer and songwriter. How he chooses to use the different elements he has at his disposal is truly innovative. Nobody is playing the blues quite like this. It is very exciting to hear something this fresh. It is currently available digitally.
You Do You
You Do You
You Do You is a 7-piece funk rock party band from Philly known for their infectious beats and electrifying 70’s-era showmanship. Since forming in 2012, You Do You has drawn comparisons to artists such as Parliament, Janis Joplin, Chic, Lady Gaga and Phish, and has supported an array of talented musicians that includes Robert Randolph & the Family Band, George Porter Jr. of the Funky Meters, the Dead Milkmen, and many more.
Led by Katie Feeney’s raw, sultry vocal stylings, the band delivers a powerful performance characterized by tight chemistry and four-part harmonies, wild stage antics, funky grooves and wailing melismas that land somewhere between Whitney Houston and Robert Plant. YDY released their second EP, “I Got Time,” in November 2014 and has since wowed local crowds at venues like Union Transfer, The Fillmore Philly, Boot & Saddle, World Cafe Live and more. The band will be releasing a new EP, Political Party, in July 2017!
