Ron Gallo and The Lawsuits @ Spruce Street Harbor Park.

June 27, 2014

RonGallo02Spruce Street Harbor Park, a pop-up spot just below Penn’s Landing, officially opens today but last night, around 800 people were given early access for the #whyilovephilly party, which featured the record release celebration of Ron Gallo‘s debut solo album, Ronny.

Ron was joined on stage in front of the Christopher Columbus monument by members of his other project, Toy Soldiers, as well as Reed Kendall from Up The Chain.

Up The Chain kicked off the evening’s performances, followed by a rousing set from The Lawsuits.

Ron and the band then performed most of the songs from the new album and he sang a tribute of “That’s amore” to honor his grandfather, who recently passed away.

While the performances were great, the clear star of the evening was the illuminated park, with multi-person hammocks hanging from the trees and beer and food stations along the brand new, two block-long boardwalk. There are video games, bocce ball courts, a beer garden and lots of places to sit and chill.

This should be a fun spot to hang all summer.
