About this Event

PORCH 40

Porch 40 delivers a hip take on modern Rock & Pop with funky undertones that highlight their clever arrangements. The band formed in 2012 at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. Word of their unforgettable live performances quickly attracted regional attention and a loyal, growing following.

In 2014 Porch 40 recorded their first album “Spread It Heavy” at Reflection Sound Studios in Charlotte, North Carolina, with Mark Williams (Southern Culture On The Skids) engineering, Jamie Hoover of the legendary Spongetones producing, and the renowned Dan Millice mastering. They were the last band to record in that historic studio.

Most recently, Porch 40 wrapped up the recording of their highly anticipated sophomore album, with a release date yet to be set. This album showcases a diversely talented band always pushing their boundaries. The album is produced by Robert Mercurio from Galactic; mixed/mastered by Count aka Mikael Eldridge (Radiohead, Blink 182, The Revivalists, Portugal the Man) and was tracked at Parlor Recording Studio in New Orleans, LA.

From festivals such as the famous Bele Chere in Asheville and the highly touted Sweetwater 420 Fest in Atlanta, to clubs across the southeast including The House of Blues in New Orleans, The Orange Peel in Asheville, and The Fillmore in Charlotte, the band has a committed and wildly dedicated fan base.

Porch 40 is especially known for their extraordinarily intense live shows and high level of musicianship. They have shared the stage and performed with Blues Traveler, Galactic, The Doobie Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band, REO Speedwagon, Leftover Salmon, Jackie Greene, Tauk, Big Something, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, The Suffers, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and more.

One of the most original and talented bands to come out of North Carolina, Porch 40’s engaging songs and energetic shows make them favorites everywhere they perform.

STIG

STIG is an all-instrumental psychedelic neo-funk band based out of Asheville, North Carolina, consisting of 5 best friends from a myriad of places both geographically and musically, including Ryan Stigmon on saxophone, Thomson Knoles on keyboards, Artie Sadtler on bass, Jack McChesney on drums, and Riley Hoover on guitar. They are individually influenced by jazz, funk, metal, bluegrass, psychedelic rock, and beyond. A day in the STIG tour van is soundracked by an absurd potluck of 5 musical brains and their live shows artfully weave their improvisational nature with tight communication and 3 years of playing and growing together, to create a high energy, exploratory and engaging experience.

STIG’s music is the culmination of a democratic and highly collaborative song-writing process – their tunes are all original and always written as a group to fuse each member’s genre-crossing influences. Since forming while at Berklee College of Music in Boston, STIG has been touring the country non-stop, and developing community around their music in the Southeast region.

From opening for the likes of Aqueous, Nicki Bluhm and Dynamo to raging the late night stage at Some Kind Of Jam festival, STIG is constantly working to bring their groovy instrumental sound to as many smiling faces as they can, catering to the vibe and energy of the crowd. Be on the lookout for new music, tour dates, and updates from the band!

Their debut studio album, Agreed Upon, came out 9.28.18, and STIG’s latest single “Splügarn” came out on February 15th, 2019 and is available everywhere!
