One of the longest running house concert series in the Philadelphia Area, for more than 20 years, PASA has presented its members in a true house concert setting. Since its creation by Rob Lincoln in 2000, more than 150 different performers have performed as a co-headliner.
Each concert features three PASA members as co-headliners, plus 8 to 12 "Open Chair" performers. Anyone who wants to play an original song can be an Open Chair performer. These shows are in round robin format, one song at a time and the Open Chair slots not only begin the show but also occur at the end of every round. There are usually seven rounds with an intermission in the middle.

Nominated for five 2013 WSTW Hometown Hero Homey Awards, Jessica was a 2013 Philadelphia Folk Factory People's Choice contest winner and a 2012 Delmarva Folk Hero contest finalist.
John HudomeJohn Hudome is a singer-songwriter whose style crosses-over into blues, acoustic rock, country, and folk. John has performed in bands, duos, and trios over the years. He most enjoys the challenge of solo performing. John first performed solo at the age of 13 (he was too young to know he should have been scared). He hopes that his music is something that people can connect with and enjoy. John has dabbled in banjo, piano, and percussion, but his love has always been the guitar, especially acoustic.
