The Racket Boys presents Charlie Fieldâs Retirement Jamboree
Let's clear up a few myths about The Racket Boys. They were not born from the ashes of a Pheonix. They were born of women, like you and me. And, unlike you and me, they make music that is a blend of hip-hop and funk-rock that works so well it's flagged by the FDA for causing colon-melting euphoria.

The Racket Boys' very human story began when Kevin and Mark met in high school. But the Racket boys were not complete until Aj, Paul and Charlie joined in college. In the beginning the music was raucous, raw and fun. And in five years their sound has gotten tighter, the sound more sophisticated. Yet the vibe is just as fun.

In fact The Racket Boys followers are encouraged to get weird (like real weird; somewhere between side show and moonshine-drowned-West Virginia-family reunion). So please dance, bounce, bob and lean however you wish. Most importantly, enjoy the music.

The RBs have played shows all across the east coast sharing the stage with bands such as 3OH!3, K. Flay, Sirah, Long Miles, 3 Legged Fox, BioDiesel, Tweed, and Weekday Warriors
Weekday Warriors
With a little over a year under their belt, the Weekday Warriors have made a name for themselves in the Newark area and are currently finishing up their second full-length album. “Quantum Collapses,” releasing some time in the summer of 2014 is the culmination of Dan “Deej” Jalil’s whale-influenced guitar sounds, Brian “Funky Fingers” Davis’ funky bass lines, Lord Dan III’s drum prowess, and Russell Que’s knack for cartoon and obscure pop culture references. Citing The Roots, Shaquille O’Neil’s performance in “Kazaam,” Pokemon, and the Number 5 as their main influences, the Warriors bring an exciting style of acoustic-alternative-new wave-experimental-funky-kitchen-hip hop that would make any lemming turn around away from the cliff and shake what their mother gave them.
Tweed
Tweed
Tweed inspires and excites with music fueled from high energy performance and improvisation. Just as their namesake fabric of mingling colors and textures, Tweed has interwoven a psychedelic web of funk, rock and electronica. The band was formed at University of Delaware and now calls Philadelphia its stomping ground. Their collaboration can take listeners from multi-layered visions through the psyche to sweaty, raging dance parties driven by their own incessant beat.
