Playing together since early 2015, Steal Your Peach can be described as a mixture of some of the hardest working musicians in the Philadelphia area. Each bandmember has multiple projects currently both original and not, and have formed a bond with some of their favorite and most influential music, paying close attention to detail of all of the original music. You will see that they also add their own improvisations to the mix making each show unique and exciting, and to create a very tangible symbiotic experience between the band and the listeners.
They say, “There is nothing like coming back to pay homage to the music that inspired us all to play. They have played Brooklyn Bowl, Trocadero Theater, Ardmore Music Hall, Underground Arts, Abbey Bar at Appalachian Brewing Company, River Street Jazz Cafe, Stout’s Brewery, The 8×10, Gypsy Sally’s, The Acoustic, Mexicali Live, Havana New Hope, Tellus360, World Cafe Live Philadelphia and at The Queen in Wilmington, De, Be On Key Psychedelic Ripple (Denver, CO), Owsley’s Golden Road (Boulder, Co), Quixote’s True Blue (Denver, Co), In and Out of the Garden We Go Festival, WhoHill Festival, Bright Box Theater, The Abraham Lincoln Hotel.
