The Backsliders came to be in 1992 when Steve Howell and Chip Robinson began playing as a guitar-mandolin duet in Raleigh, NC. They soon found themselves wanting to amp up their sound in the spirit of the Flying Burrito Brothers and the Rolling Stones…rock and roll dudes playing country-tinged tunes with just the right amount of don’t give a damn attitude.
The Dead of Winter plays the songs of the Grateful Dead. The band came together in the winter of 2015 as a one-off project to raise money for local charities in Boone, North Carolina. Due to the favorable reception that the band received in its first gigs, they decided to play more often. The six-piece band includes musicians of more than a dozen other Boone-based bands.
The Worthless Son-in-Laws are a band based in Boone, North Carolina. They play mountain indie-rock, or something like that. They are aware that their name is grammatically incorrect. The current lineup is Dave Brewer (drums), Rob Brown (electric guitar/vocals), Rich Crepeau (bass guitar), and Jimmy Davidson (vocals/acoustic guitar).
