The Late Winter Jibberjam hosts an eclectic, electric line-up.

With each member utilizing a wide variety of effects and styles, and creative collaborations within the songwriting process, TBD continues to forge a signature sound that makes heads turn and bodies move.
Funk outfit Swift Technique will also be there. After forming in 2007, Swift Technique has relentlessly toured, performed and recorded throughout the US. The extremely positive chemistry shared by the band has always been translated in the live setting. With the 2013 release of, “you boys be aight,” Swift Technique has now established themselves as an up and coming force in the recording industry. Although the group draws from many world influences, their genre is uniquely Philadelphia.
Bethlehem, PA’s Trouble City All-Stars play a mix of roots, reggae, dub, rocksteady and psychedelic. Over the past 6 years Trouble City has been turning heads and tuning in ears from all over the region with its own brand of original roots/rocksteady/reggae. Trouble City blends old sounds of traditional reggae with some more modern aspects to accomplish a solid sound to get your feet moving. Trouble City has put out three albums and has played with the likes of Stephen Marley, Badfish, Matt and Kim, Flux Capacito, the Dirty Heads, Dr. Dog, the 7 walkers, Railroad earth, to name a few.
