2nd & South Street Stage:Shadowplay Performance Time: 7:10pm
Shadowplay is a rock/alternative band based in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. The roots of the group can be traced back to playing music in the year 2006, at the age of 14. Together, Lead Singer, Andrew Corkery, and Guitar player, Dan Holden, officially founded Shadowplay in 2009.
Since then they have been going non-stop in the music scene, gaining traction and sustaining success ever so rapidly. In 2011, they released their official “Ghost Train” EP, featuring the respectively named single and 7 other songs. These tracks would later be rerecorded in addition to newer material for the release of their first album “Visions”, which would be released in 2012.
The local and personal success of constant performing of the groups early material at the time got them connected with Ted Richardson in Philadelphia, PA, with whom they produced the single “Sandy Eyes” in 2013, in response to Hurricane Sandy which tore through the bands home the year prior. The group then began opening up for such notable acts as Tracii Guns of (LA Guns, and Guns and Roses), and Doug Wimbish of (Living Colour), Hoobastank, even completing two national tours of their own. Now after four years of working on new music, touring, and working diligently, the band has once again teamed up with Richardson to release their second full length LP. The album is titled “Almost Lifelike” and was recently released be on June 21st, 2016. It brings out a much more mature level of craftsmanship in relationship to the bands early work, and they are eager for everyone to hear it. The first single “Empty Skeleton” has been made available for streaming along with the album on Spotify, SoundCloud, and bandcamp.
Thee Idea Men Performance Time: 5:10pm
“We have such varied influences,” Hayes says.
“I come from alt-country, rock background. Susan comes from much more of a pop background. We have a lot of diversity. We both brought opposing points of view to the band. It’s sort of an ‘Odd Couple’ kind of thing,” Hayes says.
Sounds like: “The music comes out turning like pop rock,” Hayes says.
Know their roots: Hayes and Rosetti first started performing together nearly seven years ago. After receiving a developmental deal from Arista Records, the duo moved to Los Angeles but decided to relocate to Pennsylvania to start over with a new project.
Teaming with Miades and Scooter, Stargazer Lily quickly developed a regional following and became a staple of the Philadelphia and New York City club circuit.
But in 2005 the band called it quits. Recently, Hayes says, the quartet decided to get back together for a handful of reunion shows.
