"Music Feeds Me" Concert Series Presents: The York Street Hustle

  • Camden Children's Garden

Featured Artist: The York Street Hustle – Performing 60's & Motown Hits

Series Presented by: Levi's & SZA

Each week, ten musicians arrive at a former South Philadelphia funeral home where, one by one, they unload their old tube amps and vintage gear. Once inside, the classic sounds of the 1960s are reinvigorated, reenergized, and reborn. Legends, like Stevie, Aretha, and the Four Tops; lesser-known artists including Donny Hathaway, Arthur Conley, and Better Everett, are all given new life. In a few short years, The York Street Hustle has gone from filling tiny South Street bars to repeated sell outs of WXPN's World Cafe Live. Their repertoire now spans well over a decade worth of Detroit, Memphis, & Chicago soul.
