Texas girls and blues.

Matt Duke

Best thing that's happened to you in Philly?

Being a part of a World Series celebration after we closed out Game 5 against Tampa Bay. The energy was incredible and you never felt more love for your fellow man than you did after the Phillies won the World Series (aside from all of the looting mishaps ... but we don't really need to talk about that).

Name one thing that Drexel students are better at than the pros when it comes to running a record label.

Is "keeping it real" a legit answer? Does that saying sound dated? Drexel students bring the spirit of youth and an enthusiasm that weathered men and women from the music industry wish to have back. 

Keb' Mo'

Best thing that's happened to you in Philly?

My first Keb' Mo' show in Philly back in '94 was at Rittenhouse Square—the audience was so cool and the atmosphere was exciting to me as my first record was just released and WXPN was playing it.

Most excited to see at the fest?

Booker T. I’m looking forward to catching up with him.

Susan Werner

Best thing that's happened to you in Philly? 

I learned how to ride trains. I adore SEPTA. For those of us from the Midwest, Philly's trains are miraculous. 

Most excited to see at the fest?

Ben Folds brings such smarts and fun to his music. Fun is so underrated. I've also never met Emmylou Harris—when my band is done we're gonna run over to that stage and see if we can get some kinda little papal audience with her. Don't you just wonder if her hair is that fabulous in person? I suspect it is. 

North Mississippi Allstars Duo

Most excited to see at the fest?

Booker T. Memphis royalty.

What other band of brothers do you have the most in common with?
