By popular demand Sideshow Prophets is back!
The Sideshow Prophets are a 7 piece Punk Rock Rhythm-n-Blues Band from the heart of Philadelphia. This veteran septet pulls influences from all over the musical map, twisting the rhythm-n-blues of the 40′s, the rebel rock-n-roll of the 50′s, the sweet soul sound of the 60′s and the punk attitude of the 70′s into an intoxicating wall-o-sound. Bring your date, bring your dinner, bring your dog, but whatever you do, bring something to hang on to!
Concert Begins at 3 PM
