Kickstart the Great SOCIO

What would happen if a member from The Doors, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Cake and Incubus all got together and decided to form a band? Well… besides my brain exploding, the general result would probably sound something like the Great SOCIO. Based out of Philadelphia, these guys are well on their way to defining a new genre of music they like to call Groove Rock. With just four members, the Great SOCIO commands a well-rounded arsenal of instruments, except a guitar. Surprisingly, it’s not missed! These guys rhythmically wield the trumpet, piano, synth, bass, drums and vocals to create one hell of a Rock and Roll sound.

They’re also on quite an ambitious (but achievable) Kickstarter mission to raise $6,500. All funds will go toward touring and recording costs for their new EP, “Modern Grip”. If you have an extra $5 (or $50,... or $500) in your bank account,  the band is offering some pretty sweet rewards for your efforts, such as a backyard BBQ party and a one-on-one basketball game.

Still need a little more of a push to pull from your piggy bank? Come see what The Great SOCIO is all about TONIGHT at the Legendary Dobbs on 3rd and South St!
