Ring in the New Year with Swift Technique December 23, 2014 By Amber Strazzo End 2014 on a high note with us! Along with our traditional lowering of the Red Rose and fireworks at midnight, Philly funk band Swift Technique will perform beginning at 10 PM in Binns Park. Swift Technique formed in 2007 and was quickly named one of the top 10 Hip-Hop bands in Philadelphia by The Deli Magazine. Over the years, they’ve transformed from a live hip-hop group to an old school funk ensemble, with a sound that is uniquely Philadelphia. Swift Technique has graced the stages of concerts and festivals from New York City to New Orleans, and has opened for big names like Wu-Tang Clan, Wale, Questlove of the Roots, and Keri Hilson. You can catch their set for free on New Year’s Eve. Both the concert and fireworks are free and open to the public.
