Arts on the Square Spotlight: Meet The Great Party

Saturday, July 20, 2013
The Great Party assures us that they most definitely live up to their name.  They'll be bringing their party down to Arts on the Square next Saturday and we can't wait!  Wear your dancin' shoes and get ready to have some fun!

The Great Party! I must ask, do you live up to the name?!!

We like to have fun and like to make our shows fun, so if you’re the type of person who enjoys this thing called fun, you’ll hopefully agree our name is appropriate.

Who’s in the band, what do they play?

This gets tricky with the first names…..

Michael Nordberg – Keys, Guitar
Michael Eastman – Vocals, Guitar
Matt Thomas – Drums
Matt Mang – Bass
Rosaleen Eastman – Vocals, Keys

How long have you guys been playing together?

This party’s been going on for about 2 years

How do you describe your music?

We often are described as a nostalgic 80s sound with a modern twist. Comparisons are tough so we call ourselves Ameri-Pop/Style-Rock.

Who are your biggest influences?

We’re all over the place with this one but influences most of us have in common include Bowie, Radiohead, Blur, Matt Thomas’ home brewed beer and cheddar cheese combos.

What is the band’s overall dream?

Of course we’d love to do this for a living, see the world, improve people’s lives with quality tunes

What has been your favorite show so far?

We very much enjoy playing Dobbs on South St in Philadelphia. The people there are great and there’s a great history to the venue. We’re definitely looking forward to Arts on the Square though. It will be our first time playing outdoors!

What’s your one piece of advice you’d give to a young musician starting off?

Play as much as possible with as many different people as possible and learn from everyone you can.

What do you love most about playing together?

The fun we have, lots of joking and laughs.
