New Pony delivers a driving, southern fried brand of funk and soul with a few modern twists that leaves audiences all over the Delaware Valley clamoring for more. Fortunately, now people can get it because their new CD, "Make Your Move," captures their live sound in all its funky, fire breathing splendor. The song writing is polished, the musicianship is accomplished and tight, and the rhythm section lays down a groove as wide as a boulevard and as tight as a wire, while the horn section erupts like a flash fire. New Pony's live sets have always been characterized by a soulful, funky energy, and the the chemistry between the band members fuses through a kind of musical alchemy into an infectious electricity wherever they play. The Philadelphia City Paper recently said of them, "they groove, they rock, they make you dance and they throw one of the best parties around."
Since forming in 2006, New Pony has established themselves as one of the most sought after and entertaining bands on the local and regional scenes. Their schedule takes them to most of the top venues in Philly, as well as all over Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, Northampton, Berks, and Chester counties. The band also makes regular trips to Baltimore, NYC, Delaware, and the Jersey shore. They've been a featured performer at some of the region's top festivals, and they've opened for a number of national acts including The Budos Band, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Bernie Worrell, Papa Grows Funk, The Main Squeeze, and Robert Randolph and the Family Band.
