York Street Hustle: Holiday Spectacular
Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden Street, Philadelphia, PA
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 Betty Everett – all are 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 over 90 songs including more than a decade worth of Detroit, Memphis and Chicago soul. This is not your typical Motown band. With grit, sweat, and attention to detail, The York Street Hustle is the Northeast’s premier 10-piece 1960s soul tribute.
Join the band for their annual holiday spectacular, including many Motown and Soul holiday favorites!
