Philadelphia has a very interesting music scene. Opinions on whether it’s a “good” or “bad” one will vary, but it is certainly home to many eclectic bands with a desire to be heard. In order for that to be possible, there is the need for attractive venues bands will want to play at and people will want to go to. Triumph Brewing Company in Old City is one of those places. Triumph was initially known as a brew house with an eclectic beer list, tasty food, and a fun atmosphere. Although this remains the case today, their inclusion of live music 7 NIGHTS A WEEK has boosted its presence in Philadelphia from a fun bar to hang at to the place to be. As a Philly native and musician, I am qualified to assess that we lack quality jazz clubs. How is this the case in the home of jazz legends such as John Coltrane, Stanley Clarke, and Philly Joe Jones? Have we lost our way? I don’t know and I’m not going there, but as long as the few jazz clubs that exist hold to quality standards, we are keeping a stake in the ground. This is not at all meant to limit Triumph to the confines of welcoming ONLY jazz music. Select nights of the week cater towards music listeners of all kinds. To me, that’s part of the brilliance. One night you will hear Miles Davis tunes, the next you may hear a Grateful Dead Cover band, the next you may hear an acoustic singer/songwriter duo. The one thing that’s consistent is their drive to provide a spectacular hang out in a city in need of more. If you live in Philadelphia or find yourself here at some point, be sure to stop by 117 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia PA, 19106.
