Thursday night we rolled into Raleigh to play our second show at Sola Coffee Cafe. It was great to see so many friends and family come out to support us in the capital city. The next day we drove down to Pinehurst, NC for the annual Pinehurst Food & Wine Festival. Wow! This place was fancy. Instead of sleeping on the couch we had our own hotel rooms. After Tommy crushed a whole jar of $14 M&M's we headed down to the Carolina Ballroom to soundcheck. We played for the dessert and moonshine portion of the festival and got to sample tons of great food and wine.
The next day we spent a little time enjoying the resort before heading to Greenville, NC. Turns out the Pirates were playing a game that night and after they won, we jammed out to some pumped up college kids at Peasants Pub. The gig had some added nostalgia since Jesse, Tommy, and Carson all spent many years in this town, playing some of the very songs we still play to this day.
Now we're on the Outer Banks for 5 days playing at Mike Dianna's Grill Room in Corolla tonight, Monday Sept. 1st. On Wednesday, we'll be playing the end of summer concert at the Beer Garden. Last time, we had a blast playing this venue and look forward to being back! On Thursday we play a new venue for us, the Roadside Cafe in Duck, followed by a show at Trio in Kitty Hawk on Friday. On Saturday we'll be making a long drive out to Winston-Salem to play Foothills Brewery before heading back home to Asheville!
Back in Asheville, we'll be off for 5 days before heading down to the River Arts District to play Riverlink's final concert of their summer concert with Portland based band, Fruition. Check out our tour schedule for more details and we'll see ya' soon!
