Philadelphia’s contributions to the Bandstand era of American music will be memorialized in a new mural at Broad and Tasker streets. The unveiling of South Philly Musicians Remix, created by Mural Arts Philadelphia‘s Eric Okdeh, will take place on Saturday, October 15th with a few recognizable faces in attendance (and on the wall).

The mural features portraits of Frankie Avalon, Jerry Blavat, Charlie Gracie, Bobby Rydell, Eddie Fisher, Chubby Checker, Al Martino, Fabian Forte and James Darren, with those first three names taking part in the dedication festivities.

More information for the block (which will also have a DJ and refreshments) can be found here. Watch a clip of Okdeh at the mural site here, and watch a profile on Jerry Blavat below.
