The Deuce-Tre’s w/ Theodore Grams @ PhilaMOCA 5/26/11

Published on May 31st, 2011

The Deuce-Tre’s Collective headlined an all-local show on Thursday night at PhilaMOCA, aka the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art. After a full lineup of openers including Lucy Stone, A.M. Analog, and Wild Rompit, The Deuce-Tre’s took the stage to play a very danceable set of covers. The somewhat recently formed six-piece group is comprised of Jordan Brown on vocals, Henry Forman and Matti Beresin on guitar, Ray Bailey on bass, Sam Metz on tenor sax, and Harry Metz on drums. A definite highlight of the show was their opening rendition of The Spinners’ “It’s A Shame,” which immediately brought the previously calm crowd to their feet. Other standout covers included “Sittin’ On The Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding and the super funky “Sing A Simple Song” by Sly and the Family Stone.

After a while, The Deuce-Tre’s were joined onstage by their Mt. Airy homie Theodore Grams. The band and Grams had performed together just one night beforehand, opening for Chiddy Bang at the First Unitarian Church. The energy in the room took off as they played several songs featuring Grams’ lively and entertaining vocals.

The Deuce-Tre’s have yet to release any music online, but for now you should check out “I’m Chillin,” the first single from N-Daddah’s debut mixtape that was produced by the band’s own Harry Metz. Below that are photos from the show, full size versions can be found here.
