South Philadelphia Musicians by artist Peter Pagast is located at 1231-33 East Passyunk Avenue. The South Philadelphia Musicians mural celebrates Philly’s own musicians of the Bandstand era including Frankie Avalon, Chubby Checker, Al Martino, Bobby Rydell, Fabian, Eddie Fisher, as well as “The Geator with the Heater,” Jerry Blavat. This lively mural is located in the heart of South Philadelphia. Located against the backdrop of the Italian Market, this mural is a tribute to the sound that made South Philadelphia famous in the 1950s and ‘60s—a sound that not only defined Philadelphia, but an entire era.
