Founding Story

Mole Street co-founders and principals, Brian LaPann and Brendan Walsh, meet on North Mole Street in Philadelphia. Brian and his band are performing a show on a rooftop when Brendan hears the music from his home off North Mole Street and walks over to enjoy the concert. The guys form a friendship over music.
