POP: Pop/Rock, ROCK: Rock & Roll
Downtown Harvest is a fresh new breed of rock n roll we like to call comic-book punk rock. Drawing inspiration from a variety of musical influences, their music blends groove-laden funk elements with big beat rock, with traces of hip-hop infused keyboard hysteria trailing in its wake.
The band was conceived in 2002 when former high school classmates Bobby Cahill (bass, guitar) and Larry Thomas Moore (vocals, guitar, bass) ran into each other on the R6 train platform at Temple University. The rest was history as drummer/vocalist Christopher Wood and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Frank Ewing entered the mix.
Downtown Harvest has played over 150 shows since their return to the East Coast in mid 2006. They have established themselves as one of Philadelphia''s great original bands. Their single "Hurry Before Worry" was part of Jaxon''s 93.3 WMMR Local Shots series and received airplay throughout the region. The group has won national accolades as well, most recently winning Ralph Laurens RalphRocks battle of the bands contest.
Downtown Harvests second LP "Golden Dragon" was born in July 2007. The band describes their new release as more persuasive and inventive than the first album, with a taste of red curry spice that touches upon the foundations of rock, grunge, dance, hip hop and drum and bass." Inspired by their favorite hometown Chinese restaurant, the CD itself is quite the novelty with its linear notes reading entirely like an ethnic Chinese cuisine menu.
