The Lewis Brothers are Philadelphia's best known bluegrass band.They have been together since 1985.

As a member of the John Herald Band, Wanamaker Lewis shared the stage with Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Ritchie Havens, Doc Watson and many more.The Lewis Brothers bring high energy and complete professionalism to every event.You will not be disappointed!!

Here's what Gene Shay of WXPN and emcee of the Philadelphia Folk Festival has to say about Wanamaker Lewis:

"Wanamaker Lewis has to be the best banjo picker to come out of Philadelphia in ages. His guitar work is always top notch and the extreme talent and musical excitement he displays on stage is legendary. No doubt about it---Wanamaker Lewis is a master player and vibrant band leader from swing to blues !"
Gene Shay WXPN, Folk Alley, Sirius XM Satellite Radio , MC Philadelphia Folk Festival

Here's what Lisa Rich of The Trenton Times wrote on May 25th 2012:

When you see him on stage, you might as well call him master.

Wanamaker Lewis is known as one of the most talented banjo players to come out of the tristate area. His level of skill goes beyond mastery into the ranks of the Jedi.

Tomorrow night, he and his blues band are coming to Triumph Brewing Co. in New Hope, Pa.

As a musician and songwriter, Lewis is versatile and varied. He leads his blues band, a bluegrass group and his newest project, which focuses on Gypsy swing and Americana.

The tight four-piece band featured tomorrow has been around for more than a decade, and it shows. Attendees can expect high-energy, seductive rhythms, and a whole lot of soul with an ensemble of guitar, harmonica, bass and drums (Lewis is on guitar and vocals).

The focus: not only arrangements of classic Chicago blues, but modern spins on the classics as well.

Wanamaker Lewis & Co. are great. Their performance was excellent and my guests really enjoyed it. I'm very pleased with having chosen this group for a bluegrass type experience.
