Check out some of the stuff popping up on Preach Freedom and Connect’s social media platforms in recent days, and you’ll get the feeling this is one band that’s waaay ready for the warm rays of the summer festival season to start coming on so they can get out to play – and bask – in the sunshine.

That’s still a way off yet (hell, right now, it feels like a looong way off) but that’s not stopped PFC from summertime dreamin’ – and it’s not keeping them from playing on, either.

Good thing, too, ‘cause sometimes, a healthy dose of the kinda stuff PFC’s got – a funky, deep-groovin’ sound, soaked in sun, drenched in good vibes, and straight beaming with socially-conscious positivity – is just we need to get us through a couple more months of these long, cold, dreary winter nights.

The sun will shine warm (or, at least, feel like it is) here in Erie again when PFC hits the stage at the Docksider on Saturday, Feb. 14 along with the not-to-be-missed New York roots-reggae collective Mosaic Foundation.

Yep, that’s Valentine’s Day, too, so the evening show can serve as a nice, funky party present for you and yours, whomever they may be.
