Orchard lounge returns to Philly with Let'z Danza! & Double D at
Ardmore Music Hall 12/22
Orchard Lounge is returning to Philadelphia for the first time since 2013 to perform at Ardmore Music Hall on Sat. Dec 22, and they’re being joined by Philly’s own Let’s Danza!, known to fans as the current incarnation of notable Philly livetronica powerhouse Brothers Past. Double D will kick off the musical programming for the night with doors opening at 8 P.M. and showtime at 8:30 P.M.
“We’ve been in town to play separately a few times over the last few years, but this is the first time in half-a-decade we’ll all be throwing down together as a trio,” said Orchard Lounge’s Ben Silver. “We couldn’t be looking forward to it more, and we’re happy to have our buddies in Let’s Danza! joining the night.”
Formed in Chicago over eighteen years ago, the DJ collective known as Orchard Lounge is made up of Ben Silver, Spencer Lokken and Bethany Lokken. Looking back over an almost two-decade career, Philadelphia has popped up on the OL-performance radar at least a couple dozen times. They’ve played venues all over the city, from The Mann Center and the Electric Factory to regular plays at The Blockley during its heyday.
Let’s Danza! is rooted in Philly, so they’re no stranger to dazzling fans from the stage at Ardmore Music Hall. The project features founding Brothers Past members Thomas McKee (keys) and Clay Parnell (bass - also of Particle/Biodiesel/CIA) alongside second keyboardist Ian McGuire (CIA/McZwang). In addition to a hallmark two key-player setup, the project has another distinctive X-factor: a rotating drummer selected from among some of rock and livetronica’s best touring acts nationwide.
While their music centers around McKee and Clay Parnell’s tunes from their Brothers Past days, they’ve been releasing new music like their single “Money Hook” and plans to release an original album aren’t far off on the horizon. Previous performances have included drummers such as Mike Greenfield (Lotus), Kito Bovenschulte (Particle), Scotty Zwang (Ghost Light, RAQ) and Allen Aucoin (Disco Biscuits). Let’s Danza!’s special guest drummer for Dec. 22 at Ardmore Music Hall is still TBA.
