Samba band PhillyBloco will perform at the Commodore Barry Club in Mt. Airy July 20 to raise money for Germantown program BuildaBridge.
BuildaBridge "has employed visual, performing, and culinary arts for 15 years as vehicles to transform the lives of children and families experiencing the trauma of homelessness," according to a news release.
PhillyBloco features 13 drummers, singers, guitarists, horn players, and dancers who engage the audience in dances during the show.
Doors open at 8 p.m. and the music will start at 9 p.m. Tickets are $40 in advance or $45 at the door.
BuildaBridge’s Philadelphia-based programs have often goten significant financial support from the School District of Philadelphia, but the district's budget situation has threatened that. The PhillyBloco Samba dance event hopes to work to help close that gap.
