Urban Guerillas capture the local music scene

    Urban Guerilla Orchestra (U.G.O) is a Philadelphia based band of instrumentalists and vocalists. They play a combination of classic pop, rock, soul, jazz and funk from the late sixties onward. The band consists of about fourteen talented and experienced musicians (not necessarily performing all at the same time).  The individual band members have performed with R&B, funk and hip hop greats ranging from Michael Jackson to The Roots. 

    As one of the participants of the West Oak Lane Jazz Festival, Urban Guerilla Orchestra’s high energy music got the crowd on their feet, “kickin it” old school with dance covers, a rocking horn section and choreographed back up singers.
