The Pennsport String Band is one of two very accomplished string bands that became part of the mummers in 2008. Led by Captain Charlie Nicholas, they have become a welcomed addition and an asset to the Mummers organization!
The Pennsport String Band’s performance of their 2014 “Carnival in Venice” included some of the most intricate and detailed props in the parade. The performance was introduced with a backdrop of St. Marcos Square. Performers emerged to the Carnival of Venice Waltz, some even rising out of a giant gondola. The production was vibrant and brought a true carnival atmosphere to Broad Street this year!
