As a product of the fighting city of Philadelphia, where no punch is pulled, and respect is earned, I developed a blue-collar work ethic and hardened resolve at an early age.
As challenging as it is to keep track of Jaron Gulino’s growing list of musical endeavors, it is nearly impossible to match his drive and determination.
Despite maintaining a rigorous touring schedule with his flagship band, Tantric, Jaron Gulino simultaneously balances duties with Philadelphia’s own Heavens Edge and the occasional moonlight performance with George Lynch and the Electric Freedom.
In the middle of Heavens Edge’s spirited hour-long set at last weekend’s M3 Rock Festival, frontman Mark Evans made a newsworthy announcement as he gathered himself before a captivated crowd.
Even before joining forces with Mark Evans to form Heavens Edge in 1987, guitarist Reggie Wu had already established himself as a noted member of the New Jersey and Philadelphia music scenes. Wu, a renowned axe-slinger whose technical prowess is intertwined with an innate sense of melody, honed his chops in different bands prior to joining Whitefoxx, an all-original rock band based in New Jersey.
While ACϟDC’s critics will deride them for being “overly simplistic,” or “too primitive,” in reality, ACϟDC may well be the greatest Hard Rock band of them all. Their Blues-inspired brand of Rock music is subtly nuanced, and the group itself is a shining example of Rock ‘N’ Roll symbiosis paired with just a little bit of magic that only Scottish transplants from down under can replicate.
Just like any other night, Mark Evans took center stage radiating his infectious energy, while maintaining impeccable attention to detail. His band, Network, was gearing up to do an original set at Enchante Dance Club, in Cherry Hill, NJ.
