I received multiple emails in January from people asking about the String Band Show of Shows. Most people want to know where and when the Show of Shows is going to be held in 2015. As most of you know, the String Band Show of Shows quietly ended after the 2013 performance in Atlantic City. In its place will be the new Mummers Mardi Gras parade.
I loved going to the Show of Shows as a kid and I’m still bummed it’s not being held anymore. It was a lot of fun going backstage at the Philadelphia Civic Center and most recently the Atlantic City Convention Center to see the bands warm up and play music before they went out on the stage and performed for the audience.
Looking around online, I found some great videos from the Show of Shows and I’ll be sharing them on the blog all month. If you would like to share any Show of Shows photos,videos or stories, send me an email and I will be happy to share it with everyone.
