Si Senorita is a refreshing blend of reggae, blues and rock - performing original music that is generating quite a buzz in the Philadelphia music scene. At a typical show the music can range from a steady dub-reggae rhythm, to a ten minute instrumental, to some rockin' blues - each carrying the positive Si Senorita sound. Their fans enjoy dancing, singing along, and and making every show energetic. What is most amazing is how well they grab the attention of new listeners and make a musical connection with them. Based in Montgomery County (suburb of Philadelphia, PA), they are quickly growing to become one of the areas top original bands.
They began playing together at an open mic that current band members Mike Garrity and Justin Dietrich co-ran at Finn McCool’s Tavern (Hatfield, PA). Mike Clemmer started coming out to jam the open mic with them and there was instant musical chemistry! Soon they decided to get together on Saturdays and practice, which is when Brian Motz began drumming for them. At this point it was time to officially form a band which is when Si Senorita happened. They got their first paying gig at the Bell House (now called Rising Sun Inn) in Telford PA and from there began playing all the local bars. They cut "El Demo" which was release in July 2005, selling the better part of 1000 copies in a matter of months! Brian Motz left the band in April 2006 at which time they added their current drummer Matt Stumpf. You can often catch them playing at bars/clubs in the greater Philadelphia area, but they are currently venturing out to tackle a wider audience and larger venues.
Si Senorita has played and headlined well-known Philly music venues such as the Trocadero Theater, World Cafe Live, Grape Street, and The Khyber. Several of thier shows have been in connection with Philly radio stations such as 88.5 WXPN (home of nationally syndicated show "World Cafe Live"), and 93.3 WMMR (home of Pierre Robert, respected on-air personality). They were written up in Philadelphia's PLAY Magazine for a full-page COLOR feature in the April, 2007 issue. Si Senorita is proud of the fact that they do their own booking, promoting and merchandising. They have completed their first tour (Florida) spring, 2006 with unbelievable responses! Some Florida venues included Freebird Live (Jacksonville Beach), Alligator Alley (Ft. Lauderdale), and Flavour Nite Club (Miami).
The band is currently recording their debut album which is coming together nicely and expected to be released in January 2008 - just in time for their next tour. The future is looking good for Si Senorita, and with the support of their family, friends, and fans they can continue to achieve great things and spread their unique style of "suburbanreggaeblues."
