In the midst of other delicious First Friday activities on the South Side, we are proud to announce the latest installment of the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series, presented by SouthSide Arts District and Banko Beverage Co. and set to promptly take over South Bethlehem on Friday, December 1.
Lehigh Valley Underground is teaming with legendary South Bethlehem listening room Godfrey Daniels on #GoUnderground at Godfrey’s, a collaborative effort intended to shine the folk venue’s prestigious spotlight on many of our region’s rising stars.
Godfrey Daniels, the legendary folk venue on E. 4th St. in South Bethlehem, is about to be injected with the jazz pop stylings of two of the region’s top artists in the genre.
The spirit of independent art was in the air at Allentown’s Cedar Beach Park on Saturday afternoon, where long-awaited (by some) brisk fall conditions didn’t stop the crowds from coming out to enjoy Day 2 of Allentown ArtsFest.
Friday night at SouthSide 313 was one marked by stellar musicianship, improvisation, and good vibes.
The party will continue this Friday night, even after the official Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series festivities end — and we have The Groove Merchants to thank for that.
Let’s address the elephant in the room: Musikfest begins Friday. Just like last year, you can be sure that Lehigh Valley Underground will have daily previews of the action as the days go by.
Until then, there are plenty of non-‘Fest related activities taking place throughout the area this week, and we’re here to tell you about ‘em!

The Groove Merchants have been expanding their reach and gaining regional notoriety. Earlier this year, they performed on Radio 104.5’s “Live at 5” program, and have been wowing crowds steadily throughout 2017.
Sunday, August 20 might just be their biggest opportunity yet.
In advance of tonight’s airing of Tape Swap Radio‘s Rooftop Sessions featuring This Way to the Egress on WLVU: The Sound of The Underground (8 p.m. ET), the show has released a video of the band performing its new song, “What Do You Want?”
Christopher Snyder returns to LVU. This time, he sits down with guitarist Luke Ferracone of The Groove Merchants. Luke tells us everything about the band, and extensively discusses the music that has influenced him. It’s a great read — we hope you enjoy it!
