TRAE PIERCE & THE T-STONES
Aug 22 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Grammy Award-winning bassist Trae Pierce is leading a wild new musical experience known as Trae Pierce & the T-Stones (TPTS). Defined by hard-edged funk and hip-hop mixed with rock and blues, TPTS has developed a high-energy live show with a modern feel that also recalls the unstoppable grooves of Bootsy Collins: they “wants to funk you up!” Trae is a world-class bassist and four-time Grammy Award- winner (with the legendary Blind Boys of Alabama) who cut his bass chops as a member of The Ohio Players.

From his Florida home, this bass “monster” has hand-picked a vibrant young group of musicians with limitless energy and extreme talent, and together they’ve been tearing up dance floors throughout the Southeast with a genre-blending twist of funk-rock rhythms that bring out the best in every beat. After sharing the stage with funk powerhouses George Clinton, Parliament Funkadelic, The Revivalists, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and The Main Squeeze among others, TPTS is ready to take their party nationwide.

THE FLOORBOARDS
Aug 23 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The Floorboards are an American Roots Rock Ensemble hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. The band marries rock & roll and country roots with the sights and sounds of southern mountain towns. Jake and Rob shake the leaves from the trees. Chris coaxes stringed cries from the hills and hollers. Matt writes and sings the story.

The Floorboards released their second studio album, Borrowed Moon, on November 21, 2017. Borrowed Moon finds the Roanoke, VA based band delicately walking a line between singer/songwriter, Matt Browning’s, evocative lyrics and guitarist/songwriter, Chris Blankenship’s, tastefully blistering guitar work.

Since the Floorboards’ debut album in 2012, the years have gone by in a flash of Ford Econoline and rock ‘n’ roll. Borrowed Moon was given its first kick at life in 2013 with the band’s original lineup. Something with the music didn’t feel right, so they took to the road to figure it out. As the dust settled, the band experienced lineup changes, a few broken bones – and the songs that singer/songwriter Matt Browning penned with an acoustic guitar became their proud workingman’s rock ‘n’ roll music. Somewhere between Birmingham, Alabama and New York City, the band agreed a total change of scenery was needed to drive their next album forward.

Since forming in Roanoke, Virginia in 2012, The Floorboards have toured extensively throughout the East Coast, sharing stages with Dwight Yoakam, Trampled by Turtles, Darryl Scott, Tim O’Brien, Yarn, Los Colognes, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Will Overman, and many more.

Influenced by a wide array of artists from Parliament Funkadelic and the Meters to the Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers Band to Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock, Voodoo Visionary has a uniquely blended sound that’s guaranteed to put the ‘oogie in yo boogie.

Red Dress Amy

Red Dress Amy

Red Dress Amy is an alternative rock band from Charlotte, NC. With trippy tremolos, silky synths, and head bobbing rhythms, they fuse energetic dance rock with psychedelic grooves to create their unique sound and listening experience. The band released their self-titled debut EP in December 2018 on Spotify and other streaming platforms.
 
Kaska Sun

Kaska Sun

Kaska Sun is a 4-piece alternative rock band formed in 2018 when Dan, Cory, and Bobby met up for a rehearsal in Charlotte, NC. Seeing opportunity to play great original music, they found their drummer, Matt, and began writing. They recorded at Catalyst Studios in Charlotte, NC with Rob Tavaglione. Kaska Sun released their first EP in 2019 and are planning to record a full album in the near future. Stay tuned!
 
Pelican Johnny

Pelican Johnny

Pelican Johnny’s debut full-length album, Relentless Heart, is a thorough synopsis of his diverse influences and musical interests. From dark, sappy folk songs and taking-a-stand honky-tonking numbers to fuzzed-out guitars-a-roarin’ tracks from the straight-ahead rock’n’roll side of punk, the songs have a common link in their vocal grit and memorable hooks. Most of the album was recorded and engineered by Johnny in his humble East Austin home studio (where he also mixed and mastered it). Other than the violin, accordion and sax parts, he performed every instrument on this release making this an all encompassing DIY effort. “It was important to me to keep this a raw and honest record – and not to get carried away with fixing things, which is easy to do in this era of recording. Although it was a lesson in learning to let go, I think the true spirit of these songs was accurately captured here.” –

THE VOLTS
Aug 30 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The Volts truly began in North Florida, where gospel and soul music lay as thick as the hot, humid air. Band leader Kevin Maines brings a youthful vibrancy to the classic southern R&B/Soul legacy. Kevin’s debut album, American Hustle, received praise for its creative writing, playing, and production, as well as the strong musical maturity rarely seen in debuts. From deep and dirty Duane Allman-esque slide guitar rockers to sweet gospel-inspired falsetto singing, Kevin Maines doesn’t just play in the southern soul traditions, he consumes and then gives them back bursting with his own unique twist. From gritty to ethereal, this music speaks for itself.

After taking a few years to write new material, Kevin put together his second band, The Volts, consisting of bass player Greg Jungbluth, drummer Joey Lanna and Kevin’s brother Derek Maines on keys along with a cast of other Florida musicians to record the follow up album Raiders On The Southern Wild. Kevin Maines and The Volts released their first album in June 2017. Fans of Funkadelic, Son House, Ray Charles, and Prince should take notice. Inspired by the never-ending creativity of D’angelo, this album moves past typical blues song formats and takes creative chances. After a year of steady touring, Kevin Maines and the Volts have shortened the band name to just The Volts. Some musicians dig deep into tradition, while others are endlessly creative risk-takers; every now and then someone comes along that does both. The Volts are those unique individuals.

TRAVERS BROTHERSHIP

Twin brothers Eric and Kyle Travers have been making music and stunning audiences since they started playing music together at 7 years old.

In 2012 the brothers formed their latest project, Travers Brothership, a Soul/Funk/Rock/Jam ensemble based out of Asheville, NC with Ian McIsaac on keys and percussion.

There is a reason Travers Brothership stands out among most acts on the scene today, they care to make each concert a unique and unforgettable experience. Utilizing the band’s unmatched live energy, instrumental prowess, and 3-part harmonies; they create a live atmosphere that transforms an audience into a community. A Travers Brothership concert is best described as a wild block party, and this is a party you don’t wanna miss.

Following the success of the “I Don’t Mind EP” the band began touring nationally in 2013 and has since performed 400+ concerts across the United States. The band has shared the stage with many accomplished acts such as: Charles Bradley, Taj Mahal, Moe, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Blues Traveler, Robert Randolph, Leftover Salmon, Trombone Shorty, The Marcus King Band, Dr. John, and many more.

In 2014, Josh Clark (Bass & Vocals) climbed aboard Travers Brothership. This lineup change finalized the current roster of the band, enabling them to perform the 3-part harmonies that define their current sound.

Over the course of two national tours the band began work with Grammy award winning producer, Juan “Pericles” Covaz, and Grammy nominated engineer, Matt Williams. Following recording sessions at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL and The Eagle Room in Asheville, NC the band’s first album “A Way To Survive” was complete.

“A Way To Survive” was released in 2016 to critical acclaim and outstanding reviews. The album has won numerous awards including “Best Studio Album of 2016” at Homegrown Music Network, and has received airplay on radio stations throughout the U.S. and beyond. The band has won numerous other awards including: Winner in Raleigh NC’s Band Together Competition in 2017 and placing runner up in Floydfest’s On-The Rise Competition in 2018.

Side Hustle and Darren and the Buttered Toast
Sep 6 @ 10:30 pm
Side Hustle
Side Hustle released their debut EP:Common Ground (available on all platforms) and appeared for the second year in a row at the Orange Blossom Jamboree. Side Hustle is constantly touring throughout the Southeast in 2019.

Side Hustle is a deep-groove, rock, soul and funk group formed and based in Jacksonville, FL. The four-piece band brings together various backgrounds from funk, electronic, blues and rock to capture, elevate, and move audiences. 
Recently featured by Music Fest News: ‘The playing of this quartet is just so clean, so clear, truly making for optimal listening. You can hear every note of Laplume’s guitar, feel every not of Thomas’ fat, fat bass. Begley’s keyboards, primarily organ, are front and center on every song, and Plotz is clearly directing traffic from behind his drum kit. ‘

Originally from the cultural landscape of South Florida, singer/songwriter/guitarist, Anton Laplume relocated to Jacksonville, FL. Laplume emerged from the blues scene as the lead guitar player and band director for international blues band, The Rockin’ Jake Band. Laplume toured with the band throughout 2014 and 2015, across the U.S. and Canada. Known for his strong guitar skills, he enjoyed being a go-to for many local artists before creating, Side Hustle.

Sean Thomas (vocals/bass) is a key component in the new sound emerging from the band. Thomas was a key member in one of Jacksonville’s premier funk/jam bands Herd of Watts, routinely playing festivals around Florida, as well as up and down the east coast.

Billy Begley (keys/synth) is a newly added member who brings bold and creative ideas to the band’s catalog. He brings a traditional touch with his classical piano upbringing and provides a modern electronic improvisational flair with his jamtronica and subtractive synthesis background. As a founding member of Lucky Costello, a Jacksonville band touring across the Southeast for the last five years, Begley is reaching out into new territory by collaborating with talented artists to create as much new music as possible.

Aaron Plotz (drums) anchors the band with his high-energy performance and talents grounded in a classical percussion training. Plots has collaborated with heavy weights such as Tony Steve, Richard Kirkland, Charlotte Mabrey and Danny Gottleib. Aaron has found much success in the Jacksonville arena as the go-to drummer, sharing the stage with numerous national acts and occupying festival slots with some of the best Jacksonville has to offer.

The band’s composition is an entertaining fusion of singer/songwriter arrangements with improvisational elements of jazz, transitional grooves of funk, melodic awareness of pop, and the raw emotion of blues rock

 
Darren and the Buttered Toast
When Darren and The Buttered Toast burst on the scene Oct. 24, 2013, the mountains of North Carolina had no idea what hit them. Embodying the soul of R&B, Jazz, Rock, Gospel, and other musical traditions, The Toast has created a truly unique and original sound. Forging a new direction, with a focus on a positive vibe to lift the spirit and move the feet, The Toast quickly found an audience, and a home in the hearts of their fans.

Darren Curtis guides the Toast writing all original songs and providing smooth, lead vocals and guitar. Keeping seep in the pocket on drums and vocals is Isaac Capers, one of the founding members. Playing melodies and pushing the threshold of his horn is saxophonist and vocalist Delante’ Randolph. Holding the groove on the 5-string bass is Anthony Dyal. These four multi-talented musicians fuse together to create the authentic soundscape that is Darren and The Buttered Toast.

SUPER DOPPLER
Sep 10 @ 9:00 pm
Retro Psych-Country Rock n Roll band from Norfolk, VA
The five members of Super Doppler have been playing music together in some shape or form for almost a decade now and show few signs of slowing down. Super Doppler plays music largely inspired by an appreciation of the great records of the 1960’s and 70’s, while still drawing from an eclectic mix of contemporary influences. Originally from Norfolk, Virginia, Super Doppler has been touring the country extensively since the release of their debut album ‘Moonlight Anthems’ in 2017, produced by Matthew E. White of Spacebomb Records. In late 2017, the band recorded the six tracks of what would become ‘The Super Secret Singles Club’, releasing each single monthly throughout the first half of 2018. In 2019, Super Doppler again emerged from the studio, releasing “You Bring Me Down” , the debut single from their forthcoming full-length album due out in June 2019.

BIG DADDY LOVE
Sep 13 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Big Daddy Love is a five-piece band with a unique and natural blend of rock, roots and grass that they call ‘Appalachian Rock’. Above the mix, the lead vocals and acoustic guitar accompaniment of their principal songwriter, Scott Moss, command the listener’s attention and call for the harmonies that arise in response. Twin leads of Stratocaster riffs and soaring Allman-esque slide guitar on the one hand, and 5-string Scruggs / Fleck style banjo on the other– like a typical Southern rock line-up, just replacing the second guitar with the banjo– punctuate and emphasize what Moss delivers. These contrasting voices are anchored by a rhythm section that is equally at home in a groove or driving the bus with country, swing, funk or straight ahead rock. Big Daddy Love’s high-energy performances, fueled by this combination of fiery vocals, striking instrumental dynamics that range from bombastic assaults to soothing grooves, have garnered them a strong, passionate following throughout their home region.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • When: Friday, September 13
  • Time: 7:00pm – 10:00pm

TIME SAWYER

TIME SAWYER

Time Sawyer blends a grassroots feel with heart-felt lyrics to put on an entertaining show. From introspective ballads to high-energy crowd-pleasers, Time Sawyer’s songs land in that rootsy sweet spot where folk, alt-country, and rock gather for a good time.

Time Sawyer is interested in “real people and real songs” and that’s just what the listener finds in their music – a sense of realness. Time Sawyer blends a grassroots feel with heart-felt lyrics to put on an entertaining show. From introspective ballads to high-energy crowd-pleasers, Time Sawyer’s songs land in that rootsy sweet spot where folk, alt-country, and rock gather for a good time.

The folk rock band’s name reflects the pull between the past and the future. The character Tom Sawyer evokes the rural background and love of home that the band shares. Time is a muse for songwriting; it’s the thread that runs through life, bringing new experiences and giving us a sense of urgency, while still connecting us with our past.

Time Sawyer has performed on the stages of some of the Southeast’s most iconic festivals, including Merlefest, Floydfest, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, Rhythm n’ Blooms, Carolina in the Fall and IBMA’s Bluegrass First Class. They’ve shared bills with Langhorne Slim, Eric Krasno, John Moreland, Steep Canyon Rangers, The Wood Brothers, Susto, and many more.

The memorable lyrics and strong melodies result in songs that will stay in your head long after the music stops. Time Sawyer continues to develop a loyal and growing fan base. Whether they’re playing in an intimate listening room or a large outdoor festival, their goal is to forge a face-to-face connection with the audience so that they become friends who happen to be fans.

The Vegabonds

 

The Vegabonds

The Alabama-born, Tennessee-bred alt-southern rock band – The Vegabonds – kick off 2019 with the release of their fifth album (and first for Blue Élan Records) entitled “V.” The band will support “V” with a full year of non-stop touring throughout North America and Europe.

Produced by Tom Tapley (Blackberry Smoke, Sugarland, Mastodon), “V” audibly illustrates the band’s unconventional yet contagious brand of Southern rock and highlights the best of The Vegabonds’ unique musicianship, vocals, lyrics and sound.

‘V’ crosses boundaries of multiple music genres. These vibrant songs travel from sad to soulful; gritty to glorious. It’s a timeless American album in the sense it deals with eerie matters working people endure and captures their salvation in a song. Songs like “Partyin’ with Strangers”, the new single “I Ain’t Having It” and “When The Smoke Clears Up” proves the group’s ability to move people with a story, beat and melody. 

Vocalist Daniel Allen recently revealed, “I hope fans hear stories in the album. We are in a very unique time in history, and this album touches on the struggle of every day folks doing their best to navigate love, work, beliefs and the ever-changing politics that flood our lives daily.”
The Vegabonds got their start in Alabama in 2009 by playing the college circuit across the Southeastern United States. Their popularity quickly burgeoned to the point where they found their fans singing along word-for-word to their first hits like “Georgia Fire” and “Shaky Hands.” Through pure word of mouth, the group’s fan base rapidly grew, and the guys learned they had something distinctive with their eclectic mix of Southern Rock, Country, and earnest songwriting. Their DIY ethic delivered three full-length albums and an EP before partnering with Blue Élan Records for their current release.

With a sound reminiscent of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers mixed with the grit and twang of the Allman Brothers Band, The Vegabonds deliver a sensational performance, with powerhouse guitar riffs and impactful songwriting, night after night. Their hard work and unbridled talents have not gone unnoticed; the group has opened for such notable acts as Lynyrd Skynyrd and the late Gregg Allman and delivered rousing performances at festivals like Peach Festival, Sweetwater 420, Magnolia Fest, Sunfest and Taste of Randolph. 

In addition to countless dates throughout the Southeast, the band has toured Europe three times, played multiple dates in Canada and have visited every corner of the US.

A group of five musicians with myriad influences between them, The Vegabonds are fronted by lead vocalist and songwriter Daniel Allen, with Richard Forehand (lead guitar/vocals), Paul Bruens (bass), Beau Cooper (keys/vocals), and Bryan Harris (drums) rounding out the quintet.

THE GET RIGHT BAND
Sep 28 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

he Get Right Band has been described as a funk-rock-reggae band, they’ve been described as a psychedelic-indie-rock band, and they’ve been described as a jam band. While they are indeed all of these things, they are fiercely determined to not be pigeon-holed by any style or label. They are shapeshifters, focused on following their muses to honest self-expression, to whatever excites them and pushes them into unexplored territory. The Get Right Band proudly carries the torch for a long line of genre-bending power trios from Cream to The Jimi Hendrix Experience to The Police to Violent Femmes to Primus to Green Day to Nirvana to Sublime. It’s the space between the notes, the rawness and the maneuverability, that makes a power trio, well, so damn powerful.

The Get Right Band’s career highlights include shows with Everclear, Rusted Root, Dr. Dog, Smash Mouth, Ozomatli, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and Victor Wooten; appearances on NPR’s World Cafe and Nashville’s Music City Roots television show; and performances at major festivals and venues including FloydFest, StrangeCreek, Riverbend Fest, The Orange Peel, Brooklyn Bowl, and The Hamilton.

The band is built on the musical brotherhood that guitarist/vocalist Silas Durocher and bassist Jesse Gentry have formed playing music together since middle school. Durocher, who is a trained composer and has been commissioned to write for symphonies and chamber groups, has guitar chops that can soothe or rage and a charismatic swagger as a frontman and a singer. “Durocher has an impressive range and rich clarity to his vocals—think a more soulful Dan Auerbach” (Connect Savannah). Gentry’s virtuosic bass playing “catapults from elastic to nasty” (The Mountain Xpress). With the addition of Jian-Claude Mears, a drummer with “precision, passion, and an inescapable momentum” (Live For Live Music), the group’s sound has become an unstoppable force.
