Have You Been Banged lately?

Philadelphia.  Bangarang has been a staple at Victory since its grand opening in March, supplying South Philadelphia’s newest hot spot with a high energy, exciting rock show that has been missing from the scene for years.  Bangarang got their start as an acoustic duo, but after adding a few pieces, they have burst onto the cover band scene and have become a house hold name overnight.  It starts with their front men.  Jim Wible and Phil Murphy have been performing together for years and it shows.  Whether harmonizing, or singing on their own, these two captivating voices command your attention.  Next, the lead saxophone of Fred Lahm adds a fresh dimension to this dynamic band. Opting to do guitar solos on the saxophone is risky, but Lahm has the talent and stage presence to pull it off. On the bass guitar, the sometimes German Mascot, but always enjoyable Woodsy, brings the funk and the fun to every show.  Bangarang has a rotating roster of drummers, but whether it’s Josh Dannin or John O’Reilly Jr behind the kit, they don’t miss a beat. If you’re reading this magazine, then you are looking for the next great place to party, and Victory Beer Hall on a Bangarang night is the answer. Where else can you enjoy a vast selection of your favorite Victory Beers, while dancing on tables and singing along to the area’s most exciting new band?  Go to for show times and a full schedule. And get down to Xfinity Live! and see for yourself why this is the new “place to be in Philly”
