Dear Friends and Fans of DMCGW:

We regret to inform you that tomorrow night's DMCGW / Germany Hill show at the World Cafe Live in Philly has been POSTPONED due to the major political rally event happening at the park directly across the street from the venue and at the same timeline of our show.

DMCGW and the venue have agreed that it was in everyone's best interest and safety to POSTPONE this show due to the traffic, road closure, parking and security issues that the rally event will create.

We are looking to reschedule this show for the Spring of 2017 and we will inform you of the exact date once it is arranged.

The World Cafe Live venue will reach out directly to those who bought advance tickets as they have protocols in place for postponed gigs.  Typically, they refund the cost or honor the ticket for the rescheduled show, but it is entirely up to them and the buyer of the ticket.

Once again, our apologies for this completely unexpected and unanticipated change of schedule.

We hope to see you all at our next show on Saturday, November 19th, 8PM at the Dawson Street Pub.

We appreciate your support and THANKS FOR SUPPORTING ORIGINAL MUSIC!!!

Don, Marc, Mike and Jim aka...




Saturday, November 19th, - 8 PM - Dawson Street Pub - Philadelphia, PA
