“…lilting at its start and then heavy in moments. Ion rich melodies drift above murky psychedelic guitar parts that hint at both slack-key tunings and beach party horror films.” -Alli Marshall (Mountain Xpress).
Although the band is tagged most often as surf- influences can be heard from Santo and Johnny to Hawkwind. It’s WEIRD reverb-dolloped instrumental music to feel good and bad to.
Ouroboros Boys have had the distinct honor of sharing the stage with national acts such as Agent Orange, Man or Astroman, Southern Culture on the Skids and Kid Congo Powers (The Cramps) AND have served as the house band for several regular “tiki night” events in and around Asheville. The current lineup includes Lowell Hobbs (Tongues of Fire) and Tony Plichta (Tony and the Haircuts, Night Beers, USX) in addition to founding members Sean Dail and Nicholas Marshall.
The Krektones blend the surf swagger of the Ventures and the scorching guitar of Link Wray with the exotic sounds of Martin Denny to make a swaying beat that’s pretty much impossible to stand still to. Featuring Jason Krekel on lead on guitar, Dave Gay on bass, Lance Wille on the bongos and special guests John James on steel and keys with The Wave Machine (Scott Kinnebrew of Sounding Arrow) on percussion.
The Krektones have shared the stage with such luminaries as Tav Falco, Dick Dale and Quintron. Don’t miss this night of tiki-surf-guitar psychedelia!
Reverend Finster is an all acoustic tribute to the music of R.E.M. featuring songs from the 80’s IRS Records catalog. Based in Asheville, NC, its members are Andy Eubanks (guitar & vocals), Didier Rubio (acoustic bass), Ari Schantz (snare drum), and Sam Lyons (fiddle, guitar, mandolin, & vocals). Sharing the love of early R.E.M., Reverend Finster strives to bring the nostalgia of R.E.M. and the Athens, GA music scene in the 80’s through non-traditional acoustic interpretations of their music.
Reverend Finster derived their name from the great Georgia folk artist, the Reverend Howard Finster, who collaborated with lead vocalist Michael Stipe on the cover art for R.E.M.’s second album Reckoning, and also filmed the video for ‘Radio Free Europe’ at Finster’s Paradise Gardens estate in Summerville, GA. Reverend Finster’s sets include select songs from each of the IRS albums from Chronic Town to Document with a few choice sing-alongs from the albums Green, Out of Time, and Automatic for the People.
