The Philadelphia Music Co-op presents four local acts in one night for a juried showcase.

Marc Silver and The Stonethrowers
"Marc Silver is living proof that singer/songwriters don't need to shout outrageously shocking lyrical lines in order to attract well-deserved attention... His confessional songs draw you in, rather than drag you along... a truly noteworthy artist that walks quietly, but carries a big gift." Dan MacIntosh [Spin Magazine]
Mesa Jane
Mesa Jane
Mesa Jane believes music saves lives and has been writing poetry and songs for as long as she can remember. She brings solid lyrics, playful piano, and a soulful voice together in her own unique way.

All of her songs were produced, mixed and mastered with the collaborative efforts of the exquisite Joel Metzler, Tim Sonnefeld, Cody Cichowski, and Karl Petersen at Milkboy Studios.

Manatawny Creek Ramblers
The Manatawny Creek Ramblers began in 2004 in
Berks County Pennsylvania as a traditional bluegrass band,
a roots project of bandleader Daniel Bower(guitar/vocals).
Featuring Ike Wilder on banjo, Ted Fenstermacher on fiddle,
Josh Sceurman on bass and Brad Hinton on dobro
MCR plays a mixed repertoire of original and classic bluegrass
by the likes of Bill Monroe, The Stanley Brothers, Del McCoury
and Flatt & Scruggs.
For eight years Manatawny Creek Ramblers have been
working steadily, performing at private events and
festivals including their annual hosted "Pick Fest" which
draws over 2000. The band is currently working on a follow up to
debut EP 'Meet me by the Moonlight'
