    PFS Presents AJ Ghent

    Philadelphia Folksong Society

    Where:
    6156 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19128
    When:
    • Saturday April 25th 2020, 8:00pm to 10:00pm

    AJ Ghent [j-ent] and His Singing Guitar construct a musical sound that can be heard howling from the church to the streets to the clubs. His style can be defined as fresh, nostalgic, electrifying and roots rock, -- fusing blues, funk, rock, and pop, mashing it into a genre he likes to call, NEO BLUES.

     

    The energy and passion which resonates from AJ’s music, from the strum of the guitar and the conviction of the vocals, the pounding rhythm of the drums, to the thought-provoking lyrics, is sure to be felt by any crowd. AJ aims to create an unforgettable experience for music lovers, with the hopes of taking them to a musical paradise.

     

    A little hip-shaking, finger-snapping, head nodding is all you need for this tuneful travel excursion. He calls James Brown, Prince, and his family heritage as influences. He can be heard picking, sliding and strumming all over those strings, whether it’s one of his custom-built 6 or 8-string lap steel hybrids or his acoustic resonator. AJ was born to fly!
