Tommy Conwell & The Young Rumblers
Tommy Conwell & The Young Rumblers
Tommy Conwell broke onto the Philadelphia music scene in 1984 when he and his band Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers played JC Dobbs at 3rd and South. The band had a #1 US mainstream rock hit in 1988 with "I'm Not Your Man." The band, consisting of Tommy Conwell (guitar, vocals), Chris Day (rhythm guitar) Paul Slivka (stand up bass), Rob Miller (keyboards) and Jimmy Hannum (drums), was known for its raw, high energy live performances. Conwell quickly rose to the top of the Philly rock and roll food chain by providing long, sweaty, funny, bluesy and often transcendent shows that audiences ate up as something different from what they were being offered elsewhere. Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers made the hugely popular independent album Walking on the Water, and two albums for Columbia Records, Rumble and Guitar Trouble. The band was featured in Rolling Stone magazine, performed live on The American Music Awards, Late Night with David Letterman, and the Arsenio Hall Show.

2018 has been a very exciting year for Greg Sover. Greg’s long-awaited EP “Jubilee” was released on January 8th. And the Greg Sover Band competed at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in January, making it into the semifinals and showing everyone in attendance that the band from up north in Philly sure knows how to play the blues.

“Jubilee” has been getting airplay locally, nationally and internationally. “Jubilee” peaked at #2 in The Roots Music Report's Top 50 Blues Rock Album Chart for the Week of February 3. And Greg also had three songs from “Jubilee” in The Roots Music Report's Top 50 Blues Rock Song Chart, also for the Week of February 3: “Emotional” at #1, “As the Years Go Passing By” at #23 and “Jubilee” at #38.

And the great reviews for “Jubilee” have begun:

“Sover’s new E.P. is a follow-up to his awesome 2016 debut, ‘Songs of a Renegade.’ This is an extremely well-played gaggle of tunes, blues and otherwise, a true celebration… Greg Sover is a solid singer, emotional without giving in to histrionics, and he’s a really freakin’ good guitar player… Sover and his guys pack a lot of emotional oomph into the 7 tracks that make up Jubilee. Great songs that really touch you where it counts…” 
– The Rock Doctor by John Kereiff – January 26, 2018

“The Blues comes in many, many variants and we will each have our favourite format; but the slick voiced singer and red hot guitarist easily straddles the Soulful Rhythm and Blues style that I’ve loved for 40+ years. Think a pumped up George Benson or Robert Cray…”
– The Rocking Magpie – January 15, 2018

“Jubilee” is once again produced by Greg Sover Band bassist Garry Lee along with Sover. Sover’s band of Philly heavyweights with extensive resumes also includes guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling. The three are best known as Deb Callahan’s solid backing band.

Greg and the band are looking forward to playing new venues in 2018. So if you haven’t yet heard the Greg Sover Band, what are you waiting for?
