PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers were a Philly music scene staple back in the mid-to-late ‘80s.

On Black Friday night, the band reunites to headline at the Electric Factory. It’s the band’s third annual reunion show.

Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers were famous for their high-energy shows and, although the band had been off the radar since the early ‘90s, Philly fans have long memories.

“It was back in 2008, we played the Electric Factory opening for the Hooters and I had no idea. I thought, ‘Ah, some people will come out.’ People lined up to say to me, ‘Hey Tom, would you please start playing more, we miss ya, we love ya,’” says Conwell. “And it just really blew me away, and that’s what started this little string of reunions we’ve been doing every year.”

This time, they’re headlining at the Electric Factory, with Bricklin opening and fan favorites like “If We Never Meet Again” and “I’m Not Your Man” on the set list.

“Our entire Walk on the Water album, which was our first independent release. Nothing but oldies! No new songs. That’s our promise!” says Conwell.
