The rockabilly trio Full Blown Cherry began as a surf band. They started playing together in 1997. The band has grown into one of the most exciting and strongest acts on the Philadelphia scene. There are four members in the band. I think Full Blown Cherry is an amazing band because it’s a different type of music. It was fun learning about them because I don’t know many jazz bands. The song on my playlist, “She Sho...

ROCKIN' OUT:
AC/DC is an Australian rock band formed in 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young. Malcolm and Angus got the idea for the band’s name after their sister Margaret saw “AC/DC” on a sewing machine. AC/DC means “alternating current/direct current electricity. I find their music to be out of this world. The guitar and drums are really awesome. They have had a lot of different band members. During that time, they thou...
