Local Band Silent Reunion Playing Two Area Shows

Local band Silent Reunion is playing two shows in the area over the next month and a half. The first will be played at Steel City Coffee House on Saturday, July 30th. The second will be held on August 20th at the newly opened Frank's Bar & Grill, 1193 Valley Forge Rd.
For those of you unfamiliar with Silent Reunion, bassist Bob Kerr writes:
If you’ve been out and about in Phoenixville over the last couple of months than you’ve probably been hearing about a local musical act named Silent Reunion. A four-piece consisting of singer/guitarist Pete Benes, drummer Billy Mosteller, guitarist Zak Theis, and bassist Bob Kerr. These individuals come together to form an experience that transcends the traditional and current modes of musical genres and gels together into something they can call their own. Albeit somewhere in between rock, jazz, funk, reggae, blues, and soul there rarely seems a moment when anyone could say “oh they’re a “this” band, or they are a “that” band”. They have found their niche; and their fan base grows as a result from being able to satisfy multiple palates with a single serving.

Phoenixville plays a large part in the inspiration and lyrical anecdotes within the music Silent Reunion creates, and they represent their hometown proudly. Along with the revitalization of the downtown area and it quickly becoming a hotbed of rising local talent Silent Reunion has earned their place along the growing roster and will continue to include their life experiences and musings about the town in the content of their musical writing, furthering the connection between the artists and their respective audience. With recent performances at venues such as Frank’s Bar & Grill, The Pickering Creek Inn, Steel City Coffeehouse, and The Lighthouse Lounge, the locals gather thicker and thicker to witness the sparkling gems these locals pull out of the soot and ashes to represent the beauty that comes from destruction and decay.

Silent Reunion has released their freshman album “HUSH” in February (which was recorded and mastered right here in Phoenixville at Freemont Studios) and is available for download at iTunes and ReverbNation.com. Samples of their music are available at these sights as well. Silent Reunion is currently involved in multiple projects at the moment including plans for some small east coast tours to promote themselves to a wider audience base as well shooting for a music video for the song “A Prayer”. While performing locally as regularly as they can this does not seem to be slowing the writing process and new material is coming out the rehearsal space and finding its way onstage at their shows; and the fans response seems to be that the best is certainly yet to come for this up and coming local outfit.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
