Formed in 2008, This Way to the EGRESS is a 6-piece accordion led ensemble hailing from Bethlehem, PA. Comprised of Taylor Galassi (lead vocals, accordion, piano); Sarah Shown (vocals, piano, violin); John Wentz (tuba, backup vocals); Jaclyn Kidd (guitar, banjo); Nick Pecca (drums and percussion); and an ever-rotating cast of horn players. With a wide variety of musical backgrounds and a diverse array of influences, EGRESS crafts intricately arranged audible cocktails which will be sure to make you move. Together they form a tapestry of worldly influences and an alchemy of sounds modern and past, familiar and forgotten.
