PASA House Concert Series

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.

Tony DeSantis

Tony DeSantis was first known for his renditions of Stan Rogers's songs but he writes some wicked political and wonderful historical songs of his own. An entertaining performer and multi-instrumentalist, Tony is famous for "DeSantisizing" other people's songs. He has performed at clubs in Boston, New York, Toronto, Vancouver, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and London, UK. He has also produced two CDs, entitled Bright Red Sky and Across the Border. In addition, Tony has taken up acting and performed in a number of local productions. He is currently the President of the Delaware Valley Association of Rail Passengers and is involved with Prison Ministry through Sacred Heart Church in Camden.

Rob Lincoln

"Typical" or "predictable" are two words that do not describe Rob Lincoln. Whether it's "Alferd Packer", "Cat Got My Tongue Won't Give It Back", "Hrumph", "Purple Shoes", "Two Darrens", or his lesser-known "I Saw Horses Kneeling In Prayer To Mr. Ed", Rob as a solo artist has become best known for his original off-beat songs. But there are many other sides to the man who has written over 500 songs. Historic ballads, impressionistic poeticism, surrealistic imagery, grungy garage rock, fingerpicking folk, social commentary, and really catchy non-generic pop tunes are all part of his vast original reportoire which he delivers with high energy and humor. In 2014, Rob released the longest debut album in music history -- 300 original songs plus 42 bonus tracks, complete with chords and lyrics. A member of PASA since the early days, Rob founded the PASA houseconcert series and the Summer Songfest and is the person to contact for PASA houseconcert bookings. And did we mention he's also a violinist that has appeared on a number of PASA members' CDs?


Christine Winchester

Christine Winchester is one of the co-chairs of PASA. She has performed solo and in many groups, most notably in the duet Winchester/Perry. Christine's warm stage presence was fined tuned in theatre and her impressive voice has been compared to Karen Carpenter and Carly Simon. Her original songs, performed and written on both guitar and piano, range from confessional folk and funny tunes to more rock influences like singer-songwriter Aimee Mann.

You: The fourth performer can be YOU! The first eight (or so) performers to sign up at the show will sing one original song as part of the concert. This is an extra special OPEN STAGE SHOWCASE OPPORTUNITY, so bring along any instruments you'll want to play. The first people to arrive get to sign up first. The open stage slots often fill up, so come early to get a slot.
