York Street Hustle Holiday Spectacular!
Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St, Philadelphia, PA
York Street Hustle Holiday Spectacular at Union Transfer
York Street Hustle returns for their 2nd annual holiday show at Union Transfer. A yearly tradition that keeps growing, York Street Hustle brings 60’s Motown and Soul to life with a 10-piece band, including many holiday motown favorites such as “Jackson Five’s “Someday at Christmas”, Darlene Love’s “Marshmellow World” and Otis Redding’s “Merry Christmas Baby”.
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 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, 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!
