Whiskey Foxtrot is a five-piece Americana/Alt-Country/Roots Rock band from Winston-Salem, NC founded by Seth Williams and Sam Foster, in 2017. After they decided to team up together in 2017, they quickly became a regional favorite. They play hundreds of shows per year across North Carolina and Virginia while continuing to grow a following in the Southeastern US, including Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina. Whiskey Foxtrot plays with a common goal: to write, record, and perform their own material for audiences across the country, while also covering the songs that have influenced them through the years. Their original music is a combination of country, blues, and rock 'n roll; stemming from influences such as The Allman Brothers Band to Tom Petty, and beyond.
Breaking away from being a backing band in 2017, Crenshaw Pentecostal took quickly to writing original music together. Hell, they've all been working professionals in the business years before joining up. Second nature, you know?
Drummer Brian Norris cut his teeth playing aggressive music with The Academy and Deals on Bombs before joining Nashville-based country singer Ross Coppley's band. Bassist Jared Church has been a member of NC americana group Possum Jenkins for nearly two decades. Singer and guitarist Zach Tilley has been writing and performing original music for over ten years, while guitarist Dusty Redmon toured the globe over the past 15 years with bands Beloved, Dead Poetic, and the Almost.
The band makes a fuzzy, dirty, country rock sound, as if Tom Petty decided to front the Replacements in 1990's Seattle. The band released a self-titled EP in 2018, and is currently working on the follow-up LP.
Jive Mother Mary
Jive Mother Mary is not an overnight success story. They were not created to take an easy ride to the top. They're the type of band that comes from long friendships, 500 mile van rides, and honing your skills for 12 years in smoky bars; which is miraculous when you take into account that the founding members are 26 years old. Steeped in the Southern Rock tradition, this band is the culmination of that magic blend of blood, sweat, and soul that sticks to your ribs like a sunday dinner.
Since 2006, North Carolina natives and long-time friends Mason Keck (guitar/vocals), Seth Aldridge (drums), and Tyler Schulz (guitar/vocals) toured over 30 states and 6 countries; sharing the stage with legends such as Buddy Guy, Leon Russell, Grand Funk Railroad, and current powerhouses like Blackberry Smoke, The Steel Woods and Drive-By Truckers. Originally formed as a power-trio, the band put out two albums win 2007 and 2009 with Grammy-nominated producer John Custer(Dave Grohl, Corrosion of Conformity, Dag). Years in Los Angeles, CA at Musician's Institute sharpened their skills and resulted in 2013's Big City Blues, and the 2016 release Home Is Where The Heart Is was an amalgamation of two years in Athens, GA.
In early 2019, the band put out their fifth release, "The Long Odds." With long time friend Keith Ingalls handling bass duties, the band has honed their sound and is tighter than ever. The band is no stranger to the road, and with an extensive touring schedule from coast to coast and across a couple of oceans, you'll soon find Jive Mother Mary burning up the highway with some of your favorite national acts or onto the stage the coolest club in your town!
