For more live music,  two stages with performances all night will keep you dancing in between bites with this great line up:

* Hennessey Bonfire – The world pop project of songwriter and percussionist Shawn Hennessey. Rooted in African, Mediterranean, Cuban, and Indian grooves, Bonfire delivers intimate performances of lush organic music, while keeping songwriting and soulful delivery at the helm.

* ReLive – Philly based alternative Band, created under the Live.0ut.Ur.Dreams brand.  ReLive signifies growth, individuality & manifesting mt-airy3aspirations. They are a 5 piece band featuring bass guitarist Brenton Oakley, keyboardist Gabe Tate, drummer Dwaine Ross and artists/founders Freddie Foolay & Lucas.

* School of Rock – World-wide leader in after-school music education. We believe the best way to learn music is to play music. We take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels. School of Rock teaches guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums and combines weekly private music instruction and group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the stage in front of live audiences in an authentic concert setting.

* Bethlehem & Sad Patrick – A blend of her strong, soulful vocals with his sparse, jazz and blues infused playing and nuanced songwriting to create powerful love songs – good love, bad love, love lost, and love that oughta get lost.  Bethlehem is a singer, songwriter, and percussionist who was described as “Germantown’s next rising star” by WHYY/NewsWorks Philadelphia after the release of her first solo album, “Bigger Than Music”.  Sad Patrick is a songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist who was kicked out of the Calliope School of Folk Music when he started using “jazz” chords.

* Philly Bloco – A raucous mash-up of samba, funk, reggae, and New Orleans 2nd-line, all set to the irresistible beats of Brazilian Carnaval! Twenty member group features a core of twelve Samba drummers along with vocals, guitar, bass, horns, accordion, violin, keyboard, and costumed dancers.

* The Band Sheep-  An alternative rock band from Philadelphia.  Inspired by musical icons such as the Beach Boys, Weezer, Ray Charles, and Ben Folds, *The Band Sheep*’s musical direction is anchored by a focus on catchy hooks and poignant, honest lyrics. Together, with their outlandish sheep outfits and creative banter, the Band Sheep brings the party wherever they go.

Airy USA, with support from the City of Philadelphia Commerce Department, Penn Medicine Chestnut Hill, Rapid Recovery at Caring Heart Rehabilitation and Nursing, East River Bank, PFCU, Electrical Wizardry and Mid Atlantic FX and others.
