Visitors of all ages will discover that Jenkintown knows how to bring the community together for an afternoon of fun. Young, old, teens, tweens and everyone in between will enjoy exploring the many hot spots in the downtown area.
One of the groups, which is participating in Jenkintown Festival, is Pa’s “The New Motel”
“The New Motels” have been on the Philly music scene since 2003. With elements of folk, rock and pop that follow a tradition that reaches back to the Kinks, THE NEW MOTELS blend the ramshackle charm of indie bands like Pavement with twangy solos and catchy choruses that would do any classic rock fan proud. Their most recent album ‘Tilbury Sweat’ was recorded with Philly’s most sought after producer, Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Hoots & Hellmouth, Man Man). Their songs are smart, fun, and charming
