Helvetica Light is an easy to read font, with tall and narrow letters, that works well on almost every site.

Lift Street is a singer/songwriter band from the Philadelphia, PA area. Three core members, Bob Schwarz, Jacques Gordon and Don Buerk, have been playing together since the mid-1990s. They formed a 5-piece cover band called Dr. Hyde and the Corruptors, but as their catalog of original songs grew, they dropped the cover tunes and  changed the name of the band to Lift Street.


The new band’s first gig was in the spring of 2016 at Steel City Coffee House in Phoenixville. They played a return engagement later that year and that fall they performed a sell-out concert at Warehouse3 near Swarthmore College. With two full sets of original music honed by live performances, Lift Street headed for the studio. Click here to hear their first seven-song EP recorded at Grammy Award-winning Morningstar Studios in East Norriton, PA. They continue to play occasional gigs in the suburban Philadelphia area.
