keep_the_change_promo_picFor just about a year now, Keep The Change has been showing local music fans how an all acoustic band can provide a great level of entertainment.  I spoke to lead singer Jeff Perlman who told me “Our shows are always fun and different. We usually start off jamming a few songs that people have never heard acoustic versions of before such as Ozzy’s  “Mama I’m Coming Home” or “Cuts Like A Knife” by Bryan Adams. We try to establish right from the beginning that we are not your cookie cutter acoustic act.”

There are definitely many acoustic acts popping up on the scene lately, and Keep The Change are certainly among the most fun.  They have a very full sound for a 3 piece and can really fill up the room.  As Jeff explained, “We are a full Rock and Roll band within an acoustic setting. I think it defines that you can have a 3 piece trio fill a room with as much sound as a full band.  There is an ‘in between’ as far as acoustic acts and full bands. We would like to think we do just that.”

Keep The Change plays a great variety of acoustic music, focusing on Classic Rock to current Rock hits from the 60’s up to present day, and will sometimes even through in something original. It’s all acoustic sound, playing the best music from bands such as the Beatles and Buddy Holly to Shinedown and Buckcherry and everything in between. Their shows are very fan friendly and are lots of fun!

You can catch Keep The Change at some great venues including Mac’s Tavern, The Green Parrot and Temperance House in Newtown, Guppy’s Conshohocken, The Red Rooster Inn, Con Murphy’s, Rebel Rock Bar, Urban Saloon, McFadden’s, Fireside Inn, Rock n Chair in Avalon.  Here is their upcoming schedule:  June 7th – Guppy’s Good Times in Conshohocken, Pa; June 8th – O’Towne Tavern in Oreland, PA; June 14th – Guppy’s Good Times Conshohocken, PA; June 15th – Green Parrot in Newtown, PA; June 23rd – Rock n Chair in Avalon NJ and June 27th- Con Murphy’s in Philly.

To sum up this band, they are just 3 guys that enjoy playing music together. Jeff told me, “We truly appreciate every single person that has helped us get as far as we have in such a short time. Our goal at every show is to give friends (fans is not a word we like to use-everyone who supports us is a friend) an opportunity to get together and socialize and hear us give everything we have each and every night we play. Without all of our friends we are just a few guys playing in somebody’s basement. The love and respect we have for everyone that supports us will never go away.”

Keep The Change Band is:  Jeff Perlman-Lead Vocals, Miguel Martinez-Lead/Rhythm Guitar and Rowland Adamoli- Djembe/Guitar/Vocals.  Be sure to check them out as soon as you can.  To read more about the band, view pictures and see where they are playing next, please visit .

The sky is the limit when it comes to serving patrons at the Sky Box Sports Bar & Grille! I spoke with General Manager, Joel, who is so excited about this place-its contagious! This place is all about fun and Joel re-iterated the importance of doing everything in his means to assure that whoever walks thru their doors will come back and continue to spread the word! The owners have turned the classic La Casa Mia into the State of the Art venue it is today. They even hired La Casa Mia’s own beloved Chef, who cooks up delicious full menu entrees to your typical bar favorites. Serving great lunch and dinner specials and happy hours from 4-7pm Monday thru Friday. They also have fresh seafood daily, home-made chicken fingers; nothing is frozen-everything is home-made and fresh….made to order.

The Skybox Sports Bar & Grille is located at 2621 Durham Road in Bristol PA, right off of I-95 and Veterans Highway. And there is plenty of free parking! There is also another lot customers can use on those packed nights and you can even ride on their very own shuttle to get to your spot! Why go downtown or to the shore each weekend; when the Sky Box is just a hop skip and jump up the highway-and it‘s non-smoking.

There is an outside patio which can easily accommodate 50 guests where you can hang out. It’s private and heated when needed; with direct assess to two bars and three televisions. The interior is ultra modern with great lighting and there is an upstairs where you can chill out at the mezzanine bar, overlooking the entire place.

The owners, including new partner, Mike Nagel, whose father owns Georgine’s Restaurant, is constantly checking out the competition to ensure that people will keep on coming back. With phenomenal bands and cutting edge DeeJays they got the entertainment thing down. You can also see all the UFC fights you want on either their 70” projection television or any of their other 20 something televisions throughout the bar. Just last weekend 92.5 had their 28th annual ticket run there and about 800 people showed up to party and win free tickets to their annual concert. Skybox also offers VIP customer parties, theme parties; they can also cater your very own event too.

Check out this line-up: Every Sunday you can get 5 bottle buckets for just $6.00! Monday: $2.00 Vodka mixes and $1.00 Drafts, $5.00 16 inch pizzas-order in or out, they even deliver! Every Tuesday and Thursday its $2.00 U-Call-Its! Just added, Wild Western Wednesdays has lots of line dancing, toe tapping and $1.00 Domestic Bottles from 10pm to midnight.  You get a scrumptious free buffet every Friday from 11am to 8pm, $1.00 Domestic Drafts & $2 Domestic Bottles from 8-10pm on Friday and Saturday night, along with live entertainment DJ or Band. Here are a few upcoming events: June 9th is the ultimate fight with Pacquiao vs. Bradley, June 12th is the big Beach Party with DJ Chillio in the house. There will be a contest for the best beach attire, lots of give-a-ways including a Miller Lite grill and Phillies’ tickets. New Owner, Mike Nagel’s birthday bash is on June 27th.

The owners of Skybox also like giving back to their community. With ID all Military get 50% off, every Saturday, Sunday and Monday, from 11-5pm. The rest of the week its 10% off. They also take care of their local Fire, Police, and EMTs too and offer discounts as well. Joel believes that reputation is most important. “We supply security staff, 7-10 guys to ensure everyone is safe, and the rest of the staff ensures a clean and happy environment. The Skybox is always changing for the better.” Most importantly, “We cant do anything without customers and customers are always no #1 at the Skybox Sports Bar and Grille!”  Want to know more?
