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.

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

---
Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm.

For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page, to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community.

As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'.

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back, Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret.

The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture:
