"Feeling the Philly Sound"

And the winner is... Mountain Man. American rock with touches of folk, including banjos, this band had great songwriting, exceptional technical skills including the winner of the 2nd Best Bass Player award, an original sound and a stage presence that fit their music perfectly. They brought it all together for a memorable performance that earned them a trip to New York for one of the National Finals for the Emergenza Music Festival.

It was a great weekend at The Trocadero and an amazing and memorable night on Saturday. Best of Luck to the guys from Mountain Man in the NYC.

Mountain Man is dance music. American dance music. It started as a three piece with acoustic guitar, bass, and hand percussion with emphasis on the djembe. The combination opened possibilities that immediately separated the band from any other act normally seen at a small club. With this early excitement, the founders Matt, Cusack, Vince Federici, and Ashton Farley saw no reason why the band shouldn’t expand. So now the band has become a six piece that now includes banjo, guitar, bass, snare drum, various shakers, djembe, and trumpet. The new players are Charlie Heim, Ashton McNielis, and Alan Ens. With a core of three to four part harmony with voices and you have quite a force on stage. In a six month period, Mountain Man has played every major venue in Philadelphia including; The Northstar Bar, The Khyber, The Grape Street Pub, The Troc Balcony, and just for good measure the band played for a live studio audience including Gene Shay at World Cafe Live’s WXPN radio station for a live radio broadcast on 88.5.

Now the band’s focus is on the ever growing festival scene that is sweeping across America. The music is there and the songs are all equally interesting ranging from traditional American, Caribbean, Klezmer, Irish……everything done in an upbeat fashion with lyrics that range from the obvious love songs to “deep thoughts”(echo). Its time for Mountain Man.
