The James Pace Band 

According to the act’s official website, the group was “[b]orn on the Asbury Park circuit [and] reinvigorated in the City of Angels with the City of B-love in between.” For those who have yet to attend a show, the band’s tuneful trademark is “[o]riginal music that focuses on the sounds of 1968 [through 19]75.” Their signature sound is inspired by such other acts as “[Jimi] Hendrix, Cream, [The] Brothers Johnson, Jame Brown” and more.

The live band, led by Pace on guitar and vocals, includes Dave Filiaggi on bass, Jesse Petas on drums and percussion, Mike Macartney on organ and keys, and Donnia Holden and Masha Smith on vocals. Their special musical guest for this event is the Philadelphia quintet, Brother Starling.
