Black Stars has played the best rooms in Philadelphia, and have also the pleasure of sharing the stage with notable acts such as Bernie Worrell, Beware of Darkness, The Stone Foxes, Nicos Gun, Swift Technique, Early Ape, Bong Hits For Jesus, and many more. Black Stars has appeared live on Radio 104.5 and receive heavy airplay on regional radio stations such as 93.3 WMMR and 88.5 WXPN. In 2013 the band was named Artist of the Month by the Deli Magazine AND 93.3 WMMR respectively. Recently, crowned champions of Hard Rock Rising Philadelphia, the band is set to represent the city of brotherly love at the national level, competing for a chance to play in Rome. With a new EP and video set to drop this summer the band has no intention of slowing down. "Black Stars make articulation particularly difficult with their non-stop, adrenaline-fueled, out of control and out of mind experience. While it’s cliché to say so, no words can truly do them justice—you must see for yourself."
This is an absolute must see band, come see why.
"Without hesitation, I will declare Nik Greeley as the best frontman in Philadelphia. Greeley is a smooth criminal, a funk soul brother, and yet 100% punk rock."
"Guitarist Dre DiMura serves as the Keith to Greeley’s Mick, holding a wide stance as he sneers into the crowd. Dre’s a fucking rockstar and I’m not entirely convinced he’s actually human."
