Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers - Ambler Arts and Music Festival



An e-mail from the Tommy Conwell Store:

     "Hey! The Rumblers are playing an extremely rare FREE SHOW! It's the Ambler Music Festival Saturday, June 14th right on the street in downtown Ambler. I played last year with my buddies, the Flunkouts, and it was pretty awesome; big stage, big turnout, rock 'n' roll!
     This year it's the original Young Rumblers: me, Paul, Jim, Rob, and Chris. We played Ambler about a thousand times back in the day, so it's gonna be cool to be back. There are a bunch of other great acts on the bill, too. This is a great event. Come out! Let's Rock!"

Conwell Rocks IUP - May 6, 1989

Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers performed May 6, 1989 at Indiana University of Pennsylvania's Fisher Auditorium. Included in this post is audio of the band's intro and "Love's On Fire" - and a news article and concert review from IUP's school newspaper.





     Tommy Conwell and his Young Rumblers admittedly came to Indiana University of Pennsylvania to “get down and party,” and party they did on May 6 in Fisher Auditorium to a small but feverishly enthusiastic audience.
     The Young Rumblers played tunes from Rumble, their second album (but first national release), and also played songs from their first album, Walkin’ on the Water. After clearing it with the audience, the band played two songs that will appear on their third, as yet untitled album.
     Local band D.A. Rehmi opened for the Philadelphia rockers, playing well-received songs from their usual repertoire. Rehmi then play a cover of Conwell’s “I’m Not Your Man” as Conwell himself ran onstage to do the vocals.
     Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers delivered exactly what they promised – good old rock and roll – Philadelphia style.

Going Back to Philly!

Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers performing “Going Back to Philly” in Wildwood, NJ. Early 90’s… 

Going Back To Philly
Written by: Tommy Conwell


Well, rubber on the highway, smoke in the air
We went rolling out of Philly heading anywhere
Played our first gig in a one-room shack
Raised a whole lot of hell, said we’re coming back
played Austin, Detroit, New Orleans, San Francisco, Baltimore
and points in between
But there’s one place feels like heaven above
better known as the city of brotherly love

I’m goin’ back to Philly - lawd, it’s been a long long time
Goin’ back to Philly
Driver, move me down the line
Goin’ back to Philly to see that little woman of mine

Well, Silver Eagle leveled off at 65
eatin’ Waffle House cookin’ just to stay alive
then bus it down to Massachusetts down to Alabam-
Oklahoma City down to Texarkan-
Up and down and round and round she go
where the bus gonna stop
Ain’t nobody knows
I been a lot of places and they all look fine
But it ain’t nothin’ like that hometown city of mine

Goin’ back to Philly - lawd, it’s been a long long time
Goin’ back to Philly, driver, move me down the line
Goin’ back to Philly to see that little woman of mine

We played little black clubs where no one goes
hockey rinks and late night tv shows
flew a big jet plane all the way to Japan
took a European bus across the promise land
played London, Stockholm, Amsterdam,
Tokyo, Osaka and Yokoham-

But when they brought that thing back to the USA
We ‘bout to get it on and here’s what I say

Goin’ back to Philly, lawd, it’s been a long long time
Goin’ back to Philly, driver, move me down the line
Goin’ back to Philly to see that little woman of mine
