January 26, 2021 7:30-9:30PM Philly Drum Project's Virtual Open Drum Presentations

 



PDP presents our first VIRTUAL OpenDrum event of 2021, where we get to hear from you, the people! The night will consist of ten 5-10 minute drum-centered presentations by musicians of all experience levels - it's like a virtual TEDx event for drummers! This event is FREE and open to anyone interested in presenting or attending as just an audience member.
SIGN UP TO PRESENT using this form:
https://forms.gle/Nx75W7Yca8u4zd8L9
Zoom Meeting Link: will be posted soon!
Presentations are limited to either:
-10 minute drum-centered presentations
-5 minute drum solos
***Please note that this event will be LIVE on Zoom. There will be a short tech rehearsal at 7PM for presenters to very quickly "sound check" their sound setups. Drums are inherently loud, especially in small practice rooms with limited sound setups. We recommend you do your own personal sound check with a mock Zoom meeting before the event. We want everybody to be able to hear what you're playing/saying. PDP members are happy to assist in any way we can if you have any questions about this kind of stuff. ***
Recommended Zoom Sound Settings:
Go to Preferences (desktop), or Settings (mobile devices- BEFORE entering a meeting). Go to Audio. Uncheck "Automatically adjust microphone volume". Change "Suppress background noise" to Low. Go to Advanced (in Audio Settings) and check "Show in-meeting option to "Enable Original Sound" from microphone". When you are in the meeting and wish to turn on "Original Audio", simply select "Turn on Original Audio" in the upper left hand corner of your zoom video screen (desktop), or go to "..." (mobile) and select "Turn on Original Audio".
It is possible to use a live mic feed from an audio interface if you want to get fancy, but we cannot offer any tech support beyond the suggestions mentioned above.
SEE YOU THERE!

York Street Hustle
"Each week, ten musicians arrive at a former South Philadelphia funeral home where, one by one, they unload their old tube amps and vintage gear. Once inside, the classic sounds of the 1960s are reinvigorated, re-energized and reborn. Legends, like Stevie, Aretha and the Four Tops; lesser-known artists including Donny Hathaway, Arthur Conley and Betty Everett – all are given new life.
In a few short years the York Street Hustle has gone from filling tiny South Street bars to repeated sell outs of WXPN’s World Cafe Live. Their repertoire now spans over 80 songs including more than a decade worth of Detroit, Memphis and Chicago soul. This is not your typical Motown wedding band. With grit, sweat, and attention to detail, The York Street Hustle is the Northeast’s premier 10-piece 1960s soul tribute."

December 12, 2020 7:00-9:00PM The HipHop Nutcracker : A Streaming Performance

 Saturday, December 12, 2020 at 7 PM EST – 9 PM EST

Online Event
A holiday mash-up for the whole family, directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber, The Hip Hop Nutcracker recorded live at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center is a contemporary dance spectacle set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music. A unique and joyful event, this evening-length production is performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, a DJ, a violinist, and MC Kurtis Blow, one of hip hop’s founding fathers, who opens the show with a short set.
Just like the original, in The Hip Hop Nutcracker, Maria-Clara and the Nutcracker Prince go on a dream adventure battling a gang of mice, visiting the land of sweets, and learning the lessons of the holiday season. Innovative digital graffiti and visuals transform the landscape of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s beloved story from traditional 19th Century Germany to the vibrant, diverse sights and sounds of contemporary New York City.
Through this re-mixed and re-imagined version of the classic, the dynamic performers of The Hip Hop Nutcracker take us on a journey that celebrates love, community, and the magic of the holiday season.
Special thank you to Proud Performance Sponsor, Merck.
Proceeds benefit the Kimmel Cultural Campus' Road to Reopening Relief Fund.
