A night of music and celebration on Thanksgiving Eve featuring some of Philly’s finest talent.
Matt Vantine, a Philadelphia singer/songwriter gained local attention as the frontman for The Fleeting Ends from 2008-2018. His songs have received radio play (radio 104.5, 93.3 MMR and 88.5 WXPN) as well as placement in television (HBO’s ‘Shameless’) and movies (‘Slow Learners’).

He is often joined vocally by Lauren Davish, creating a two-part harmony for his flamenco-style pop songs. Vantine expects to release his solo debut in December of 2019.

Tommy Leahy & the Cuban Missile Crisis
While attending college in Nashville, Philadelphia native, Tommy Leahy, wrote and recorded his debut album “The Summer I Fell In-Love With a Communist.” After returning home, the Cuban Missile Crisis was born out of Office one-lines and and an unhealthy obsession with 80’s culture by way of friends: Casey Kreines, Ramon Gadea, Kevin McCall and Michael Trycieckyj.
Inspired by good, old fashioned meat and potatoes rock n roll, Tommy Leahy & the Cuban Missile Crisis aim to take Thanksgiving Eve by storm, one Turkey at a time.
