Clarence Spady Band Unveils New Branding
By: Bluescope Music
At the same time, Scranton has been the subject of heightened awareness at a pivotal time in American democracy. Birthplace of president-elect Joe Biden, Scranton, Pennsylvania is a city of both historical and cultural significance. Known as "The Electric City" to commemorate being one of the first electrified cities in the United States and home of the first fully electric-powered streetcar, the city sign illuminates the Scranton skyline at night with beaming pride.
In addition to Spady, his long-time band members are also of great musical accomplishment and pride for Scranton. Bassist Jon Ventre is a second generation musician and son of Bob Ventre, professional jazz guitarist and past member of the world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra. Drummer Pat Marcinko is a third generation Scranton drummer and son of Pat Marcinko, Jr., the long-time music director at Scranton Central High School. Keyboardist Bob O'Connell was instrumental in helping 1970's Scranton-based pop/rock band The Buoys get their national recording contract, in addition to having his own European hit song, "Stoplight."
Scranton heritage and pride shines through in every electrifying recording and performance by the Clarence Spady Band. Therefore, to embrace and honor that legacy, the band will now be proudly billed as Clarence Spady and the Electric City Band. The new band logo is inspired by the city's iconic Electric City sign.
"As a Scranton native myself and former owner of The Blues Street Nightclub, I can say with confidence that there are no better musical ambassadors of our great city than Clarence Spady and the Electric City Band," says Scott Goldman, President of Bluescope Music and Spady's manager.
