Swift Technique is a blend of James Brown, Led Zeppelin, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Roots. Equipped with a three piece horn section, the group has come together to create something that uniquely represents their hometown of Philadelphia.
After opening for Wu-Tang Clan, Kermit Ruffins, Keri Hilson, Wale, ?uestlove, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Mr. Lif and others during the last two years, the group has established themselves as one of the premiere live bands on the East Coast.
“Well its not everyday you run into a band that you can automatically feel is destined for greatness. Swift Technique does Philly proud with their eclectic vibes and funky tunes. Get your autographs and photo ops now, because in about 3 years, the only time you’ll see them this close and personal is on TV.” – Christian Denzel, Sheddin.com
