Phoenixville, 119 S Main St, Phoenixville, PA 19460, USA
A Pennsylvania-born Lansdale-Philly native, Dave Weakley came up in the late 80’s with PA based band Teeze (SMC/Greenworld). After selling 40,000 units of their debut album “Teeze” the band went on to sign with Columbia Records and released “Roughhouse” produced by Max Norman of Ozzy Osbourne fame in 1988.
The band became a favorite on MTV with their video “Tonight” and toured the US extensively before disbanding in 1991. The band has since reunited and performs sporadically throughout PA, NJ, NY and MD. Dave has continued to write, record, produce and perform, and has recently released his first solo album simply titled, “WEAKLEY”. Dave’s extensive resume of live performance include shows with Steel Panther, Eddie Money, Lita Ford, Rick Derringer, Stephen Pearcey, Kix, Ace Frehley, Skid Row, Steppenwolf, Black Oak Arkansas, Blackfoot, Stryper, Faster Pussycat, Cinderella, L.A. Guns etc….
Dave started his career early, writing a good share of the songs on the Teeze and Roughhouse albums. He then formed American Sugar Bitch where he was the chief writer along with current guitarist Matt Nardo. While this album represents Dave’s creative depth and soulful approach, it can truly not be categorized in a specific genre. It has been described as “Bowie-esq” by many.
The Naked Sun: https://wearethenakedsun.com/
Fronted by singer-songwriter, Drew Harris, and guitarist, Tim Campbell, the Naked Sun have been a staple of the Philadelphia music scene for the past 10 years. After spending the mid-aughts in the Baltimore, MD, eclectic and robust music scene, Harris moved home to his native Philadelphia to start a rock band with a little more edge than the folky "streetgrass" stylings of his previous bands (Cityslides, Red Sammy, Good Guise). Harris met Campbell when Harris answered an add looking for a female country singer. Donned in full drag, Harris met Tim at his South Jersey home to audition. However, it was his songs and not his stunning looks that won over Campbell. Soon the two formed a band, won the WXPN Beta Hi-Fi Festival and started playing shows and recording albums. Flash forward to today, Harris and Campbell are joined by Dylan Mulachy (Shark Tape) on drums, Tom Tusler (Claymation Horror Show) on bass, Alan Sheltzer on keys, and Bradley Moser on lead guitar. The Naked Sun is currently recording the follow up LP to their 2018 release, "War With Shadows," and performing live around the Delaware Valley and beyond. The Naked Sun is for fans of Wilco and the War on Drugs, but the band brings a slightly more soulful and bluesy approach to the modern indie-rock style they have coined, "honest-rock." Harris explains, "We make music for fans of records that require a little more from the listener, like, actually listening." So listen up, the Naked Sun is probably your dad's next favorite band!
