Broad and Tasker musicians mural to be unveiled on Saturday

The new musicians mural is going up at Broad and Tasker behind Valley Green Bank this week to replace the deteriorating mural at 9th and Wharton. The musicians mural was designed by Eric Okdeh in a slightly updated style from the previous piece created in 2004 by Peter Pagst.


On Saturday, October 15, the mural will be unveiled to the public.

A look at the mural going up last week:

The piece features those who have made an impact on South Philadelphia through their music. Chubby Checker, Eddie Fisher, Charlie Gracie, Bobby Rydell, Frankie Avalon and Jerry Blavat are among those featured.

The free event will include a block party with live music, refreshment and more.

You can stop in between 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. for the celebrations.

    I see the Geator still insisted on looking like a 2016 douchebro among an otherwise-frozen-in-time collection of local legends. Archaeologists will have fun trying to figure that one out a thousand years from now.
