Eclectic and expansive, Southwork are a seven-piece band of multi- instrumentalists from Philadelphia. Anchored by the songwriting acumen of vocalist/guitarist Mike Vivas, his compositions are rhythmically propelled by Mike Vogel (Keyboards, Backing Vocals, Kazoo), Nick Anastasi (Bass) and Joe Smith (Drums, Backing Vocals) and transported to another dimension by the hellacious horn trifecta of Al Smith (Baritone Sax, Backing Vocals, Percussion), Tony Trov (Tenor Sax, Percussion, Ukulele) and Erich Miller (Trumpet, Percussion).
“This feels like something out of Hair... There’s definite notes of 13th Floor
Elevators and The Who, but it’s hard to say if it’s in a serious sense or a
Monkees-ish satirical sense.” WXPN
“Sweet summertime sounds.” Philebrity
