Known for their infectious beats and electrifying 70s-era showmanship, You Do You is a funky feast for your eyes and ears. The Philly 5-piece formed in 2012 and debuted “The Sweet Sounds of the Funky Sounds” in January 2014, which was called “a well- crafted genre-defying album” by WXPNʼs The Key. Led by Katie Feeneyʼs raw sultry vocal stylings, the band delivers a powerful live performance characterized by tight chemistry, wild stage antics, 4-part harmonies, and wailing melismas that land somewhere between Whitney Houston and Robert Plant.

Pack your picnic or purchase dinner at the Compton Café featuring an All American BBQ menu, to enjoy an entertaining summer evening in the garden at Morris Arboretum. And treat yourself to dessert from Zsa’s classic and original artisanal ice cream on site in their retro blue truck.

For 25 years The Cat’s Pajamas have been making very cool music for kids, bringing a musical comedy twist to high-octane kid-rock.

Healthy and delicious smoothie samples will be available courtesy of Green Soul of Chestnut Hill.
