1) "eclectic rock/punk band out of Philadelphia" 2) Free Improv trio with Nate Wooley (trumpet), Tatsuya Nakatani (percussion) & Steve Swell (trombone). 1) Blue Collar is an eclectic rock/punk band out of Philadelphia. They have been together for over ten years, and continue to create amazing style-crossed music. BCPA, as they are affectionately known, have done it all; Opening up for Sugarcult and Phantom Planet outdoors; Packing the local pubs with their loyal fans; or driving ten hours to Vermont to wow an audience of twelve strangers. The music of Blue Collar is deeply rooted in the punk rock genre, but seems to break the stereotypes of a typical punk band.

Within the elements of their music you hear some rock, a touch of hip-hop, funk, ska, and reggae. Whatever style you call it, the music is memorable and worth listening to over and over. The members of the band are as close as brothers. Tragically, one of the brothers was killed in a car accident in November of 2004.

Front-man Vinny Green had a smooth, undeniable voice that has fast become the inspiration for the bands' future. Despite the hardships, Blue Collar has never faltered in their mission to create, perform, and amaze. 2) A free improvising trio exploring the possibility of stopping time. The group's goal with each piece of music is to subtly change the listening environment, to infuse silence with a specific meaning. Though the instrumentation leaves room for brash, jazz-oriented interjections, Blue Collar turns its attention to the smallest and subtlest of sonic details, creating music that takes its cue from speech, silence, and the everyday sounds that are taken for granted.
