Free concert features The Blue Method

The Blue Method
9/22/2006 —

Penn State York's free cultural and performing artists' series continues Thursday, Sept. 28 with Philadelphia's The Blue Method at 8 p.m. in the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center. The series is sponsored by the campus and the York Newspaper Company.

The Blue Method brings together the sounds of old school and douses them with a modern influence of fusion, funk, and experimental rock, blending them together into something they like to call "Power Soul."  The band strives to make each and every person in the crowd move to the sounds they lay down from deep thumping funk to smooth grooving soul.  The Blue Method has played at venues from the high profile festival performance at the Green Apple Music Festival in New York City, Jam on the River in Philly to tour dates spread out across the country.

This five-piece band has had the opportunity to share the stage with such acts as Chick Corea, John Legend, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, The Disco Biscuits, Soulive, The New Deal, The Duo, Oteil Burbridge (of The Allman Brothers Band), Drive By Truckers, Ozomatli, Railroad Earth, Little Feat, and Amos Lee to name a few.

Energized by a return to the studio after their 2004 release "Kill the Music:  Volume 1," a victory in the 2005 Relix JamOff, their addition to The Home Grown Music Network and subsequently being named "Best New Home Grown Band of 2005, "The Blue Method promises an amazing live performance.
