Ginger and The Schnappes Share the Love with All Original Jazz Record “Social Music”  

Media Contact: maryellen450@gmail.com 

BETHLEHEM, PA – Social Music, the first all original full length album release by Pennsylvania six piece jazz band Ginger and The Schnappes, is about reconnecting with the power of song. 

“Social music is listening to the stereo, the cassette player, the radio, the concert or a streaming device with others and experiencing the music together. “Shh, listen, this is my favorite part,” and now your favorite part becomes your friend’s favorite part,” said Ginger Brew, the band’s stylish chanteuse. 

“Social music is shared. Was there ever a better expression of your love for someone then to hand them your personally curated mix-tape? “Here, share my universe with me.”

Social Music is engaging and sometimes indicative of the band’s Pennsylvania roots; take the song 309 for instance. It’s about all the quirky and fun places along PA Route 309 from Philadelphia to Tunkhannock. If you’re from around there you’ll know those stops and end up sharing your own stories of trips along that road.

5 Ways Social Media Will Change in the Lehigh Valley in 2016

The Lehigh Valley is home to anywhere between 700,000 and 850,000 depending on your interpretation of where the valley begins and ends. Trust us, that’s not an argument you actually care to take up on social media. So, let’s just agree that it’s more than 700,000 and less than 900,000.

Regardless, it’s a lot of people. The Lehigh Valley is the largest growing area in the state and one of the largest on the East Coast. We’re totally popular and cool and it’s time to start acting like it.

This article isn’t about sentiments, but it’s time to start getting over the whole “The Lehigh Valley is boring” and “There aren’t any jobs” and “We need to go to NYC or Philly to find true innovation” examples.

Simply put, and with examples you can easily find yourself, the Lehigh Valley is an area that has every right to be on the cutting edge of social media innovation. So, that being said, here are a few ways you can expect social media in the area to change as we go through 2016 and beyond.
