Swift Technique, Philadelphia’s fiery funk extravaganza, is sprinting into their ninth year of existence at full speed! Their unique blend of funk, soul, rock, hip-hop and relentless showmanship has propelled the group into their most successful period to date. Featuring the powerhouse vocal tandem of Chelsea ViaCava and Nik Greeley, the band is releasing two new singles, “Lucky Bump” and “Reason to Be” to add to an ever-growing recording catalogue. With bombastic horns, thunderous bass and drums, driving guitar and keys, and more dance moves than you can shake a booty at, Swift Tech’s live performances are unmatched in energy, musicianship and pure feel-good fun. And with a recent appearance on the award winning Netflix series, Orange is the New Black, the group is commanding national attention.
Step into the world of Swift Technique with their latest music video, “Lucky Bump.” Ever wonder what a troop of Punk Funkers does during the day? Did they ever leave High School? Under the guidance of their trusty penguin, Senator Squawks, Swift Technique delivers a Funky odyssey for the ages.
With their first releases of 2017, Swift Technique presents two of their most polished, powerful and representative singles to date. In addition to the soulful vocal combo of Nik Greeley & Chelsea ViaCava, the group employs the talents of their large extended family of Philly musicians. The first single, ‘Lucky Bump’ takes you for a ride on the Soul Train and gets you moving with its classic and infectious groove. This feel good song is right at home in the roller rink or any dance club. It’s a true showcase for the members’ musical skill and cohesion.
