The Stump Mutts, Live at Triskelion @ Triskelion Brewing Company
Jun 29 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

All rock, ever changing, and all original music rooted in sounds they grew up with. You’re likely to hear the shadows and echoes of wide ranging influences from Nirvana and ‪Stone Temple Pilots‬, to the Stones and ‪Lenny Kravitz‬, to ‪Social Distortion‬ and ‪Husker Du‬. Neal’s distinctive lyrics have been described as a haunting growl like a “an angel caught in an electrical storm.” His vocals lay nicely over his soaring guitar tone. In contrast, Derek’s hollow body crunch couldn’t be more different in tone, yet compliments this two guitar assault. John’s punk rock bass style rounds out the front of the stage, with his smirky grin and ‪Buddy Holly‬ glasses. Patrick lays down a straight forward rock rhythm with plenty of space for the songs to breath on his throwback blue sparkle kit.

The live show is not to be missed. High energy, in your face rock with a stage presence that will make you dizzy. Knee slides, amp stands, impromptu covers, and solos in the crowd are the norm. The band has performed at Notable venues and festivals such as The Orange Peel, The Grey Eagle, Downtown After 5 Festival, Mountain Sports Festival, Xpand Fest, Dig Fest, and New Belgium Brewery’s Fat Tire Friday.

The band is based out of Asheville, NC, which is quickly becoming the Indie Music and Craft Beer Capital of the World.

The Silver Travis Band Live at Triskelon @ Triskelion Brewing Company
Aug 10 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 am

The Silver Travis Band was born and bred in South Carolina and rocks hard to the Blues, Rock and Southern Rock, Americana and AMAZING Kick Ass Originals. You’ll hear overtones of all of their growing up favorites, but make no mistake, when you hear a Silver Travis original, you won’t confuse it with anybody else.

While the band works hard on their own music, they flat out kill tunes by Marshall Tucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Elvin Bishop, and a host of others. STB is a favorite at The Allman Brothers Museum, Myrtle Beach’s Suck, Bang, Blow, The North Carolina BBQ Festival, as well as for private events.

Every one of these guys is a master at his craft, loves music and the band, and promises your audience a hell-bent for leather good time.
