Possessing hundreds of years of musical expertise among them, the Gloucester City String Band offers up a lively orchestral - like concert with timeless appeal in the Philadelphia style.
The band was formed in 1988 by Mummer Ralph Anello for retiring Mummers who still wanted to play the music they loved. Most members are retired professional musicians and former Mummers who played with many award winning Philadelphia bands.
The very talented Harry Rivell is the musical director whose variety of arrangements provide a challenge to the entire ensemble. Performances are conducted by John Juliano whose many years of musical experience ensure an evening of quality entertainment.
