The Phonies, a 7-piece rock/fusion outfit who hail from Philadelphia, are building a reputation as a fierce live energy band with stunning musicianship. Epic horn lines, biting guitar, highly danceable drums, and mind-blowing time changes are the lay of the land, and there's never a dull moment between them. Bandleader Sean Conlon's songs are at once thought-provoking and vigorous, with a veneer of classic cool that leaves the air electrified. When performing live, it's easy to see the band get captured in the moment, and it's difficult not to join along. They're all about having fun and enticing even the most stoic concertgoers to shake a little booty.
