Ill Doots - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Ill Doots
ILL DOOTS is a collective of artists, educators, and activists based in Philadelphia; a group of
individuals with different perspectives, from different places who want nothing more
than to make music unfettered by the standards of the traditional and the prescriptions
of the mainstream. What began in 2009 as a jam session, evolved into a dorm room
mixtape, and eventually into a live band; several albums and tours later ILL DOOTS
continues to hone their craft as performers and collaborators.
ILL DOOTS is on a lifelong mission to change the way our communities respond to
and value music, art, and life. As a collective of arts educators, ILL DOOTS launched
the I Love Learning initiative in 2014, setting up free workshops in schools, after
school programs, churches and other shared spaces along their tour routes and at home.
The initiative is ongoing both in Philadelphia and elsewhere.
In 2015 ILL DOOTS worked under the direction of Joanna Settle to compose and
perform music for Flashpoint Theatre Company's "Hands Up", for which they received
the Barrymore Award for Best Original Music. In 2016 ILL DOOTS composed and
performed the Wilma Theatre's production of "An Octoroon" under the direction of
Settle yet again.
Moving forward, ILL DOOTS will continue to bring more art into our communities and
continue to collaborate across mediums. The intersection of community engagement as
collaboration is of particular interest to ILL DOOTS and something to look for in their
future works.
Joe Keyes and The Late Bloomer Band - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Joe Keyes and The Late Bloomer Band
Joe Keyes is equal parts front man, poet and band conductor. The Freehold, NJ, native found his orchestra in late 2009 in The Late Bloomer Band, a rotating cast of Baltimore/DC-based musicians. The band takes audiences back to the days of Miles Davis and early P-Funk, when big bands were lead by strong forces of individuals. The band’s brand of live improvisation and musical sophistication presents a different experience at every show.

While Keyes draws inspiration from musical mentors Gil Scott-Heron and Sun Ra, The Late Bloomer Band brings a modern interpretation to funk, jazz, rock and a variety of other genres.

The Late Bloomer Band’s members, in their mid-20s, help keep 52-year-old Keyes young, and come from various Baltimore and D.C.-based bands. Having grown together musically, the band’s polished tightness has landed collaborations and live shows featuring original Fishbone members Angelo “Dr. Madd Vibe” Moore and Norwood Fisher.
