ABOUT THE SHOW
Legendary R&B pioneers, The Soul Survivors, originally from New York City, grew up listening to the vocal groups of the 1950s. While playing in Atlantic City they began to draw crowds, mostly from Philadelphia and South Jersey and, naturally, decided Philly would be the next stop. Enjoying great success there, they attracted the attention of writer producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. Into the studio they went emerging with “Expressway To Your Heart” written and produced by Gamble and Huff. The record climbed to #3 on Billboard’s R&B chart and #4 on it’s Top 100. It became that their ﬁrst “crossover” hit and would help to introduce the soon to be popular “TSOP”, “The Sound of Philadelphia”. Following the huge hit, the group toured extensively and enjoyed appearing on the same bill with such diversified acts as Jackie Wilson, The Miracles and Sam and Dave as well as Janis Joplin, the Beach Boys and Sly and the Family Stone among many others. In addition to “Expressway” , there would be three other chart appearances, “Explosion In My Soul”, Mission Impossible (Impossible Mission), and “City of Brotherly Love”. Currently, in addition to their own touring, they are part of David Uosikkinen’s “In the Pocket” project, an all star show consisting of musicians who have contributed to the musical history of Philadelphia. Next year, 2017, they will celebrate fifty years performing together delivering high energy performances featuring “The Sound of Philadelphia”.
