Velcro Pygmies on Black Friday
The Velcro Pygmies are everything that's right about rock n roll. Loud, fast, larger than life, and in your face. Big lights, foul language, tight pants and the occasional boob. They've been compared to the likes of Van Halen, Poison,
Bon Jovi,and Air Supply (They've got a sensitive side too). If you like "Big Rock" this is the band for you. If you are more into the "Hippie" thing don't waste your time; you'll hate them.
The band released it's 6th record in 07, American Muscle, which is a collection of 10 original arena rock anthems designed to blow the 6x9s right out of your Trans Am, and an inspired cover of Sweet Home Alabama. Their relentless tour schedule carries them all across the eastern part of the US with the occasional trip to Texas where they are wanted for numerous traffic violations. The band's fan base encompasses all ages races and genders plus animals really like them too.
The Pygmies consist of Jason "DEP" Reed (take a look at his picture and you'll know why he's called that) on bass, Chris Eddins, the world's most entertaining drummer. Guitar Monster, Chase "The Ace" West on the six-string, and Cameron, wants to be David Lee Roth, Flener on lead vocals. The band is a unique blend of personalities and energies that create a massive rock experience. It's a trip back to when rock n roll was fun and entertaining and not political or angry.

Huckleberry Blue is a country music duo lead by singers Tim Hair and Shelley Kelly, from Sanford, North Carolina. With amazing homogenization ability, delivering country with a little rock, Huckleberry Blue brings out straight up Nashville in every song. Touring central North Carolina in 2013, the group has opened for Nashville's Scarletta, Jason Michael Carroll, Charlie Daniels, Shannon Whitworth, and The Lost Trailers. The group plays saloons, dance clubs, special events, fairs, festivals, fund-raisers and concert halls.
Huckleberry Blue is not your grandfather’s country music. Collectively the group has a cool banjo groove, massive drum sound, and jaw-dropping guitar riffs, backed by a smooth layer of steel that provides the foundation and depth to their high-energy contemporary country sound. This male-female duo drive the building harmonies that best tell the stories people love so much about country music.
