Trying to relay the energy and power of this show with words and photos is damn near impossible. One of the most live shows I’ve seen in awhile. The energy of the Boot & Saddle was electric and at a constant all night.
The Philadelphia artist collective, Hardwork Movement, has had one hell of a year releasing their first album Good Problems, opening for Bernie Sanders and lighting up stages all over. The group stays true to their soulful Philadelphia predecessors slinging conscious verses over soul and jazz influenced beats provided by a live band. Hardwork Movement displayed their chops with an estatic performance covering originals and paying homage to classics like The Roots classic “Baby, You Got Me”. The crowd was a non-stop wave of positive energy. Beach balls were sprinkled in the crowd adding to the party element.
Hardwork Movement is made up of Sterling Duns, Jeremey Keys, RB Ricks, Rick Banks, Marty Gottlieb-Hollis, Becca Graham, Dani Gershkoff, Jeremy Prouty and Angel Ocana. Each member adds their own piece seamlessly to create a unique vibey performance.
I would suggest following these guys closely, they are riding the momentum from the summer and doing really amazing things. On September 30th they will be opening for RJD2 for the Red Bull Sound Selects at the Fillmore in Philadelphia. We will be there in full effect ready to rock out. Be sure to RSVP to catch this one!
