Summer Music Series: Sad Magazine

Sad Magazine are Andrew Snee and Robert Graham, both guitarists and songwriters. Their music recalls a three-way collision of Elvis Costello, Neil Young, and Richard Thompson: equal parts plaintive lyricism and guitar dynamics. The addition of Jeff Hart on bass and Herb Campbell, Jr. on drums adds some muscle and drive to the mix.

Summer Music Series: The Best of the Grateful Dead w/ Better off Dead

A love of the music,philosophy and spirit of the Grateful Dead was the basis of the formation of the band in 2008. We have had changes in the line up ever since we began but believe our current roster is the best since we started.

Whitney Pearsall, our lead vocalist, is one of the original members of the band. Music has been a huge part of her life. She was an entertainer at a very early age. She has been the featured vocalist in bands in Maryland and North Carolina.

Rich Saltz, one of our guitar players, is also one of the original members of the band. He draws on his love of the music of the Grateful Dead, having seen over 150 shows. Jerry Garcia's influence is easily evidenced in his playing style.

Jonas McAlarney is a seasoned player who has appeared in many bands in North Carolina. He was formerly a member of They're Only Mostly Dead. His talent adds to the intricate mix and sound that the band produces.

Brant Kay plays keyboards and shares the lead vocal responsibilities. He is also an accomplished guitar player. He has played in bands in Virginia, California, New Mexico, and North Carolina. He grew up with the music of the Grateful Dead in his family and it continues to be a vital part of his being.

Adam Rcokwell has been playing drums with the band for about a year. He has been involved in many projects in the Triangle. He brings a sense of spirit and reckless abandon to the mix. We don't need two drummers when we have an octopus behind the kit.

Chris O'Hara is on his second tour with the band. The are no holds barred when he is playing. He has been a member of a number of bands in North Carolina.

Chrystal Dail Leonard joined the band about a year ago to add her vocals to the mix. Her love of the music shines through when she shares her golden tones with us.

The bands goal is not to present note by note recreations of what the Grateful Dead produced but to pay homage to the music that has affected us deeply.

Mudbones Blues Review is the brainchild of Durham harp player Butch “Mudbones” Haas. His vision was to create a blues band that would keep even the most timid dancers on their feet all night long. Butch plays harp and guitar as well as vocals and is joined by journeyman musicians from the Durham blues scene.Mark Taylor on guitar and vocals,Warren Johnson guitar and vocals,Dave Sword Drums,Ed Moon bass, TA James on studio bass recordings. Mudbones performs original and standard blues songs inflected with mojo from the 1960’s. The sound is delicately layered, and punctuated with soulful singing and melodic solos.

Summer Music Series: The best of the Allman Brothers with Idlewild South

  • Southern Village Green

Come listen to a FREE concert featuring Idlewild South: The Allman Brothers Tribute Band!

Idlewild South, The Allman Brothers Tribute Band, was co-founded by keyboardist and vocalist Don Eason, a veteran musician whose initial influence of The Allman Brothers Band's live performance goes back to his first concert experience of the band on Easter Weekend of 1970, at The Winter's End Concert in Bithlo, Florida. A duo of drummers, (including co-founder) Robert Kintner, and John Flowers, provides the foundation with bassist 
Tim Smith rounding out the rhythm section. Slide Guitarist Dave George and Lead Guitarist/ Vocalist Pete Waggoner bring forth the dual guitar harmonies and searing guitar leads Duane Allman and Dickie Betts pioneered in the late 1960's. 

In the tradition of The Allman Brothers Band, Idlewild South's live shows can exceed a staggering 3 1/2 to 4 hours non-stop in length. The set lists are different every night, drawing from The Allman Brothers Bands self-titled debut album, 2nd album Idlewild South, Live At Fillmore East, Eat A Peach, and Brothers and Sisters, all recorded between 1969 and 1974. A few select songs from their albums between 1989 and 2000 are also included.
