Mo Lowda and The Humble

became official once making their way to Temple University. Known for their dynamic musicianship, progressive songwriting, and energetic live performances, the band gained a strong following through Temple University’s house party and campus bar scene. After a few years of playing throughout the city with only a demo and EP under their belt, Mo Lowda and The Humble signed to Temple’s Bell Tower Records, releasing their first full length album, Curse The Weather, in the Fall of 2013. The album features Jordan Caiola’s soulful vocals and power songwriting, accentuated by a technical and dynamic rhythm section, made up of Shane Woods on drums and Nate Matulis on bass. After the release of Curse the Weather, the trio found themselves becoming popular throughout the Philadelphia music scene, playing notable shows at top venues such as Underground Arts, Milkboy, and the TLA. With an abundance of new songs already in the works, Mo Lowda and The Humble's future plans include music videos, recording and releasing new material, and continuing to perform both locally and nationally.

Tickets are available at the door. Doors open at 7pm for 7:30pm show.
