PEOPLE YOU SHOULD KNOW:  DAVID SILVER & WILL TOMS, REC PHILLY

Thank you to the folks at Visit Philly for providing this article.

For David Silver and Will Toms, best friends make the best business partners. The REC Philly co-founders — BFFs since their days at William Tennent High School — are set to debut their incubator for musicians, photographers, videographers, podcasters and other creative entrepreneurs in Fashion District Philadelphia.

As up-and-coming concert promoters and talent agents, Toms and Silver saw the need. “How many Philly artists go to NY or LA?” asked Silver, “What has been missing is a space for people to collaborate and convene, and a collection of resources that’s accessible to these artists.” The original REC Philly, in a warehouse at 9th and Dauphin streets, will remain open.

The new, 10,000-square-foot Center City venue will serve both 600 current members and 400 more. It will also have a mall-side shop and cafe to sell products made onsite and Rival Bros. coffee, 14 members-only studios and a 250-person concert venue sponsored by Live Nation.
