About The Flusters

Retro Pop Indie Rock

Sherpa Music Management

Hailing from Southern California's Coachella Valley, an area known for its signature «Desert Rock» sound, this «nostalgically new» act delivers a sound which they've self-titled as «Dreamsurf.» Blending vintage tones with washy effects, driving tempos and delicate vocal delivery, «The Flusters create a dreamy retro vibe that is pure California.»

Within their first two years as an act, The Flusters were invited to play major music festivals such as Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival 2016 and Echo Park Rising 2016.
Influenced by Roy Orbison, Dick Dale, The Beach Boys, The Pixies, The Smiths, Broadcast & Mazzy Star, their unique «Retro Pop» sound has gained rapid momentum since the October 2016 release of their debut EP, «Extended Play No. 1».

With coverage from Goldenvoice,, The Monterey Herald, The Coachella Valley Art Scene, Coachella Valley Independent, Coachella Valley Weekly, The Desert Sun, & KMIR Evening News The Flusters have been listed as «one of the Coachella Valleys most exciting and authentic new bands to watch.» — CV INDEPENDENT

About The Venue

Connies Ric Rac wasnt always South Phillys home for original live music.

Way back when, it was a shop owned by the Tartaglia family with a variety of curious objects; really more of a bric-a-brac. However, after the dot-com explosion, the brick and mortar business was shut down, and a majority of the inventory was sold. The building sat vacant and plans were made for a laundromat until Connies sons, Frankie and Joe Jr., stepped in and, alongside childhood friend Pete Pelullo, built a stage and a bar. Connies Ric Rac was reborn as a hidden-gem DIY venue that attracted artists from all factions of the Philly music scene.

Initially opened as a BYOB, The Ric Rac was a venue focused on the music, not selling booze. It was all about having a great time and enjoying the talents of the artist. Thanks to this vibe, The Ric Rac became the spot for many of the areas up-and-coming musicians and bands. Many enjoyed late night jam sessions at The Ric Rac after Discount Heroes shows and open mic performances.

But music wasnt everything. Connies also became a go-to place for comedians, with many joke-makers and sketch-performers calling The Ric Rac home. Soon, The Ric Rac made it onto the comedy map with high profile national acts such as Hannibal Burress (SNL, 30 Rock) and Toddy Barry (Comedy Central, Flight of The Conchords) and troupes such as Philly Improv Theatre (PHIT), The Sixth Borough (to which Frankie was a founding member), Bedtime Stories (Gregg Gethard, Chris brother) and Ministry of Secret Jokes (Doogie Horner). After 4 years as a BYOB, The Ric Rac began serving bottled beer, wine, and spirits, but it never lost its venue before bar vibe.

Today, Connies has reached a new level of prominence in the region as a venue that gets it, one that truly supports the artists and performers. We are proud to be South Philly's Home for Live Original Music with the higher purpose of supporting the local Philly music scene and independent touring artists.

And if all that wasn't awesome enough, we offer over 50 craft beers on draft and in bottles and cans.
