He was also named Philadelphia’s Music Ambassador by Councilman David Oh, due to his tireless efforts to "put the city on" as well as his local & national accomplishments over the years.

Adam Weiner, Low Cut Connie
Carrying the torch for good old rock & roll sleaze -- the kind that can be heard on Jerry Lee Lewis' Live at the Star Club and the dirtiest Rolling Stones records -- Low Cut Connie separated itself from other new millennial rock & roll revivalists by not taking themselves as seriously as they took their big, danceable rhythms. To an extent, they're distinguished by a focus on the piano, an instrument that isn't heard much in straight-ahead rock & roll in the 2010s, but Adam Weiner's pounding keys give the piano its proper rock & roll due. Weiner co-leads Low Cut Connie with drummer/guitarist Dan Finnemore, with the duo expanding to a full band for their fiery live shows.
