The York Street Hustle

If you’re searching for an alternative to the usual wedding band for your next wedding, corporate event, fundraiser
or festival, you’ve come to the right place.

The York Street Hustle is a Philadelphia-based 10-piece 1960s soul and Motown band. Our repertoire spans over
a decade of music including Detroit, Memphis and Chicago soul. We cover well-known legends like the Temptations,
Aretha Franklin and the Four Tops as well as lesser-known artists such as Donny Hathaway, Arthur Conley
and Betty Everett. All are performed with grit, sweat, and attention to detail.
