Cocktail Party Phenomenon is a progressive/jam/fusion band based in Philadelphia.

Since convening in 2010, they have been featured in Relix Magazine's "On The Rise" section as well as Relix's monthly CD sampler alongside songs by Gregg Allman and Keller Williams. They have played with the likes of Tea Leaf Green, Dopapod, Tauk, Consider the Source, Aqueous, Big Something, ELM, The Manhattan Project, and Splintered Sunlight. They have also performed official pre- and after-parties for  Umphrey's McGee, Lotus, Dark Star Orchestra, Les Claypool, and G. Love & Special Sauce.

In their short time together, Cocktail Party Phenomenon has been widely praised for their complex, genre-bending compositions interwoven with skillfully dynamic improvisations, as well as for their spot-on covers. Blending their psychedelic tastes with a constant jazz influence, CPP has developed a dedicated regional fanbase and a vast repertoire of dynamic originals. Consistently impressive gigging and festival appearances throughout New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania have earned them a reputation as a go-to party band in the Philly jam scene, where they now headline regularly. Recently, they have jumped to the next level, playing the Electric Factory with The New Deal.

The guys of CPP have come together from varying musical backgrounds to produce a unique, mature sound covering any and every genre.
