"Don't Worry They're Other People's Kids"

Local talent shines bright at the Theater of Living Arts where "Other People's Kids" record their first live album after establishing themselves as a band only months previously........ - John Hancock


Other People's Kids released their first studio Album, Dose of Reality, in January 2011, delivering a blast of fantastic with standards such as "Footprints" and "Blue Bossa", a reinterpretation of Joe Jackson's "Steppin' Out", and The Band's "Stage Fright" as well as original compositions that will leave you gasping for air.
Dose of Reality was quickly followed up by their live album "Whose Day is This?", in March 2011 recorded at Philadelphia's own Theater of Living Arts. The live recording really exhibits the electricity among the performers through the extended jams and their ability to bring it back around at the drop of a hat. The Sets include mostly original works but are sprinkled with sparkling renditions of such gems as the Grateful Dead's "Let it Grow" and "St. Stephen".



Other People's Kids is an impermanent line up of artists from a collective of individuals who know each others' tunes as well as a number of standards and songs by other artists who are tied together by Philadelphia guitarist/song writer, Mike McCaffrey. They perform free flow jams and let the music take itself in new directions in the style of the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brother Band with hard hitting blues licks, hypnotic melodies and groovy polyrhythms painting outrageous musical landscapes. Leave your grandmother at home, unless she's a deadhead, because these guys will take you for a ride not intended for the weak of heart. Having officially formed in 2011, they hit the ground running, ceaselessly performing around Philadelphia two to five times a week and quickly building a solid following.
Having the utmost respect for great artists past, OPK doesn't try to reinvent the wheel; They just spin it as hard as they can and see where it ends up, which tends to be right in your face and out of your head. If you like grooves that make your body move and having a great time, make it a point to come out and see Other People's Kids live show because there isn't a better a party in the city.
