Concert Series Season Where We Find Music Under Gazebos and Pavilions, Plus Solo Acts, A Bit About Open Mic Nights and A New Music Calendar for NC!

Music In The Park Featuring Built For Comfort Band Under the Gazebo In Morehead City

On Saturday, June 11, 2022 I caught up with Built For Comfort rocking their blues under the gazebo in Morehead City, for the Second Saturday Concert Series at Martin Luther King Jr City Park. The blues quartet from the Greenville area offer a fun show, featuring many blues standards and familiar rock favorites.

Making up the sounds in this band are Landy Spain, who tackles the guitar parts and lends a hand on vocals; Al Carroll plays the bass, Joe Tronto keeps the back beat on the drums and last but not least on harmonica, washboard, vocals is the band’s frontman, Bill Hunneke.

They perform many shows throughout the year, but its always fun to find them jamming in the park. The first time I heard this band in 2016, I met them at a park just around the corner, down on the water for Downtown Morehead City’s Alive at Five Concert Series.

Built for Comfort offer a Teeny Weeny Bit of fun music for fans in the park on Saturday June 11, 2022 in Morehead City’s Martin Luther King Jr. Park

Fans of the band can catch them on the second Saturday in July, if you find yourself in the Washington, NC area. Click here for event details: Built for Comfort on Saturday, July 9, 2022 at Sevens in Washington, NC. At the end of July they will rock their hometown when they take the stage at A.J. McMurphy’s in Greenville. Music will be shared from 8-11pm.

Coming up next month for the Second Saturday Concert Series will be the Thrillbillies, under the gazebo at Martin Luther King Jr. Park on Saturday, July 9, 2022 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Bring a chair and the family for a night of food truck food and fun music.


At Swanfest We Go Under the Pavilion with Pure T Mommicked

pure t mommicked rocking Swanfest on Sunday, June 19, 2022, in Swansboro, NC

Pure T Mommicked is a familiar band on our local rock scene. This band has nearly a quarter-century of tales to tell. Over the years that I have known them I have seen duo and trio versions of the band, but Sunday, June 19, 2022, I was finally rocked by the full ensemble, complete with the church band rhythm section which included, Darren Boyd on bass and BJ Maynard on drums. Band founder and frontman Jimmy Mahoney, is the man on the mic with some guitar grit thrown in. Mark Hibbs more often plays bass with the band, but last week he tackled the six-string for Neal Paul who was out of town.

SwanFest is a weekly concert series brought to us by the Seaside Arts Council and its sponsors in downtown Swansboro, from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. Should you find the time to attend some Sunday soon, please consider offering a donation to assist with keeping the music and arts community flowing.

Of course, when living in Eastern North Carolina in the Summer, we do have to contend with storms and severe weather on occasion. When weather interferes with the show going on the committee simply reschedules the show. Sometimes they extend the season and other times the stack acts. For example, I went to see Pegasus Plus on Sunday, June 12 but given the weather, they rescheduled the band for July 3. The double header will be featuring Captain Dick & the Lost Seamen kicking things off at 6:30 pm, followed by Pegasus Plus at 7:30 pm.

2022 Swanfest Schedule

MC for the event last Sunday was Will Baker who is a member of the Seaside Arts Council and half of the Will & Tony Show. Always active in supporting the arts, I met Baker years ago when he was working Hillsborough, NC for a living and promoting local music on the radio there too. Now that he is retired, our coastal area is happy to have his talents in event planning.

Baker takes photos and videos of the events and uploads the captures to the Seaside Arts Councils Facebook Page. You can follow them and enjoy the music.

Will Baker welcomes gatherers to the Father’s Day SwanFest and introduces Pure T Mommicked who opens the show with a rocking original number

As for last Sunday, it was a beautiful Father’s Day night with local rockers, Pure T Mommicked, a band that came to life 24 years ago, just over the bridge in Emerald Isle, NC. Over the years the band has turned out quite a bit of original music, which is available on all streaming platforms. When I was writing this piece I was listening to them on Spotify, but at work I listen to them on Amazon Music. If you enjoy original rock I recommend checking out this rocking quartet. To keep up with their show and band announcements, follow them on facebook by liking pure t mommicked today.


Spotlight on Some Local Solo Singers

Hank Barbee at Oceanana Pier and Pier House Restaurant

I caught up with a solo Hank Barbee at the beach a couple weeks back. The long legged baritone was set up for dinner sounds, under the bar cover on the deck at Ocenana Pier and Pier House Restaurant. They host live music every Saturday evening from 6-9 pm.

Barbee splits his time playing solo, mostly around his hometown area of Wilmington, NC, and making rhythms around the region with his band The Dust Parade. In fact, the quartet will be setting up for a show tonight at Carolina Home & Garden in Newport, NC. The music starts at 6:30 pm. This band blends the talents of Barbee on guitar and vocals, Jim Durham on sax and vocals, Matt Henderson on bass and Xavier Roberson on drums. They offer original music mostly, with a wind-inspired surf sound with hints of jazz and blues. It’s always an awesome musical experience with the Dust Parade. The band will be making their rounds this summer. Next week they will be jamming at The New Village Brewery in Oriental on, July 2, 2022.

You can also mark your calendar today for their appearance at SwanFest on Sunday, August 14, 2022.

The Dust Parade has plenty of merchandise available for fans online and at their shows. Be sure to show your support by buying some music to take on the go, or a T shirt with the band’s logo. Keep in mind that every merch-purch helps advance projects for the band. One said project we are looking forward to advancing is new Dust Parade Music.

The band has been working things out for their next release. With Covid shutting things down and real life taking its toll, time has been the hardest thing to find for the studio work. The next release will be worth the wait though. It truly is going to be a beast. It will highlight this band and all of the friendship and music kinship which Barbee has been cultivating since his full time return to the NC scene in 2016.

Dust Parade Music – “It’s a Good Day” – Hank Barbee, June 11, 2022 at Oceana Pier House Restaurant

Coming up this Saturday, June 25 and next July 2, at Ocenana Pier and Pier House Restaurant will be the fun jams of MadSol Music, featuring talented stringer Tony Soldati and beautiful vocalist, Riley Madison on the deck from 6-9 pm. If you haven’t heard this duo yet, you’re in for a treat. They set out for stages all over the state, from Greenville, NC about 8 months ago. Barbee returns the following week for a solo shot at the pier on Saturday, July 9, 2022.

Greenville, NC-based duo MadSol


SwanFest PreFest with New Bern Artist Clarence Coley Live at Bake, Bottle & Brew

Clarence Coley wraps up his final set at Bake, Bottle & Brew on Sunday, June 19, 2022

Before heading over to SwanFest on Sunday, I stopped by Bake, Bottle & Brew to catch the last set of New Bern stringer, Clarence Coley. I caught this talented singer at open mic several years ago in New Bern, when he dropped by Tap That, but this was the first time I caught his live show.

While out and about I had the pleause of meeting blog follower, facebook friend and fellow music lover Joan Cross. She was sitting with David Stover at Coley’s gig. Joan called me over and introduced herself and welcomed me to their table. I told Stover I was in town the week before to catch his show with Pegasus Plus, but as we both knew, the event was postponed due to the weather. Along with playing bass for Pegasus Plus, he also keeps things in the pocket for Captain Dick & The Lost Seamen. As mentioned above both bands will share the bill next month for SwanFest during the Fourth of July weekend.

As for Coley, this talented player offers a mixed set with a variety of popular genres, including country and rock for all ages. Along with solo performances he plays in a duo Rollin’ Woods with his future wife Kristen McRoy, who he brags about on stage even during his solo shows. The duo has been navigating new territories with a new band mascot, their new baby Aidan who was born in late February. You can scope out Coley and Rollin’ Woods on Facebook to keep in tune with their destiny.


The Importance of Open Mic Nights

Tiff, Fern, Jesse, and Ryan Rubich and more joined the jam at Nick’s Blacksheep

Many music makers that are novice on the scene often hone in their talents and sharpen their stage skills at open mic events. These events often take place during the week and offer a platform for music makers to join forces, share music, create bands and more. As a music lover, I enjoy open mic nights because I get to meet and listen to so many cool acts in a short time. So many of the artists found on this blog site came to my attention thanks to an open mic night. Since open mic nights are good platforms and popular on the scene, I will always share new places to take your talent each week.

Durham

The Blue Note in Durham offers a Blues Jam on Tuesday and Open Mic on Wednesday. They support live music throughout the week and serve up some of the best food in Durham, NC. Stop by the next time you are in the mood to dine and move to the beats!

Greenville/Winterville

The nice thing about Greenville is you can hit several hot spots in a night to work out your jams. For example you can start out your Monday night with John Williams who opens the stage to jammers at AJ McMurphy’s 8 pm – until everyone jams. Following that fun, you can check in at The Buccaneer Music Hall which opens the stage at 10 pm until 1 am. All jammers are welcome to join the list and share their talents. On Wednesday’s in town you can check out Molly’s Community Cafe where tunes start at 7 pm. Just on the outskirts of town, over in Winterville, you can catch Mark Oliver hosting open mic at Nauti Dog Brewing Company. This is an every other Wednesday event. All are welcome to jam. Sign up and play from 7-10 pm.

Washington

Backwater Jack’s offers an open mic night on their pebble beach stage each Thursday that the weather permits. Hosted by local talent, Brian Burke, all are welcome to join in the fun. Music plays from 7-10 pm and all are encouraged to play. Above is a local jammer that joined the fun last summer. The restaurant and tiki bar is a big supporter of live music each weekend and serves up some great food too!

Along the Coast

Tiffany Elaine, The Crystal Coast’s mama bear and open mc hostess with the mostest!

For those living near the Crystal Coast, you can join in the fun that Tiffany Elaine cultivates at Cru Bar & Wine Store / The Beaufort Coffee Shop every Monday night. The mic opens at 7 pm and the fun happens until 10 pm. I have to to this open mic night several times over the years and always have a blast.

Tiffany is an angel on our music scene, doing a lot to help music makers strive and thrive in music. She takes her role as host seriously and makes a connection with everyone who joins her events. She introduces each person and makes everyone feel welcome and an important part of the equation.

This mother of three not only hosts open mic nights, but also makes music with her sweetheart, singer and guitarist Fernando Rivera with their duo Fern and Tiff, as well as plays music with her friend Steve Mehan in Southbound Train. Catch them this Saturday poolside at The Inn at Pine Knoll Shores. They will perform 1-4 pm.

Blues Is Our Bizness All Week Long And End the Week On A Rock Groove

On the Scene With with Tracey Stones

Monday Is Never Manic With Blues Mania at The Brown Pelican

The Brown Pelican is the popular watering hole that is known for hosting live music five nights a week. Kicking things off with a blues fix is Big Jim Kohler Band who each Monday offers music jams from 7-9:30 PM each week. This popular night brings out many blues admirers and players too. All are welcome to come out and be a part of the fun. The band offers a fun set of Chicago style blues before asking guests to share the stage for more jams that lean into the blues.

℘℘℘℘

Mid Week Blues Break Brings New Faces and Many Bassists

Following a night off, Big Jim and the Band get back to work sharing more jams with more jammers in town. Most Wednesdays, the band can be found on stage at City Stage, sharing the blues and cutting the grooves with special guests.

This past week we saw some new faces and two new bassists who stepped up to jam with the band. First, we met Chiles, a new face on the stage, who shared a few songs before tuning over the bass detail to David Rappaport. Rappaport is the bassist for the new line up of Due East who will be making their debut at The Brown Pelican in a few weeks. Look for them in mid-October. 

Along with a couple of new bass players, we featured two harmonicas at one point in the program. Blowing the notes were Gordon Graham and David Sawyer.

The mid-week blues jam offers two hours of blistering blues and rocking grooves that bring fans to Chicago and back in two hours time. The BJKBB will be there each week until September 11, when the DownEast Folk Art Society brings a show to town. More on that as we grow closer to the event.

Thursday Yields More Blues From the Road as We Head to The House for Woolly’s Big Blues Jam

Woolly & The Wingnutz are the house band at The House in Durham where each Thursday, players gather to join the jams. This week Woolly requested that Big Jim come early and play with the Wingnutz. This weekly jam welcomes many players from the Triangle region and always offers a bouquet of talent. Many of these players are friends we met along the way in our travels to The Blue Note Grill. 

Speaking of the blues supper club, they will be hosting their annual blues competition, next week for The Road to Memphis. This annual competition is judged and selects one winner from each category to go to Memphis to represent The Triangle Blues Society at The International Blues Challenge at the beginning of 2020. The Big Jim Kohler Band is registered to compete. I will be on hand to stream live from the competition.

Not long after the competition, Woolly & his Wingnutz will be coming to New Bern to rock your blues away. on the deck at Persimmons Restaurant on Saturday, September 14, 2019. That show will start at 6:30 pm.

We Welcome The Weekend with More Blues and Rockin Grooves

Things got underway between Tracey Stones Productions and Persimmons Restaurant after the manager, Meghan Margarum reached out to hire Big Jim for a show. I replied that he would be available in late August and that I would love to meet about bringing more music to the beautiful venue. After a few messages and a meeting, it was agreed that we can work together in bringing talent to the waterfront restaurant that overlooks the Neuse River. 

Last night it was the debut for the Big Jim Kohler Band on the deck. Bringing their talents to make the music were Big Jim on guitar and vocals, Chris Buttitta on bass, Mike Ferrara on drums and there is vocal spotlight which shines also when Kathy Kohler grabs the mic to belt her blues. They set up outside on the deck for the first set, but as the storm set in during the break, we broke down and moved the party upstairs and inside. Tonight you can find the boys rocking their blues at Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Wilmington NC. Music starts at 8 PM. Next week they will be back on the Bear City clock and doing what they do about town. Be sure to be a part of the fun soon. We love seeing you.

Closing Out My Week Of Blues with Good Rock

I closed out the week with the rocking fun grooves of Stairwell. This Greenville-based band has been creating sounds for 13 years and have two original discs available for purchase. They also travel with lots of merchandise, from t-shirts to jewelry, hats, stickers and more. The band plays a variety of cover songs that run the gamut from pop to rock. Of all the songs they offer, it is the original works that truly impress me. Here is a sample of what I mean.

 

The band keeps their events up to date on Facebook so if you wish to keep in the know, be sure to check them out on Facebook by following this link: Stairwell. Their next show will bring them to Da Bayou Wilson next Friday night with music being offered at 10 PM. Next Saturday the band returns to their home base to rock Tiebreakers Sports Bar and Grill, Greenville, with music again starting at 10 PM.

The Blue Note Grill

The Blue Note Grill

Groove-laden New Orleans boogie, deeply soulful ballads and rollicking Gulf Coast blues courtesy of the incredible Marcia Ball. 

Marcia Ball, the 2018 Texas State Musician Of The Year, has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Her rollicking Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world.

With SHINE BRIGHT (available April 20th), Ball set out to, in her words, “Make the best Marcia Ball record I could make.” In doing so, she has put together the most musically substantial, hopeful and uplifting set of songs of her five-decade career. Produced by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) and recorded in Texas and Louisiana, Shine Bright contains twelve songs (including nine originals), ranging from the title track’s rousing appeal for public and private acts of courage to the upbeat call to action of Pots And Pans, a song inspired by renowned Texas political writer and humorist Molly Ivins. From the humorous advice of Life Of The Party to the poignantly optimistic World Full Of Love, the intensity of Ball’s conviction never wavers while, simultaneously, the fun never stops. Shine Bright is exactly the album Ball set out to make.

With A Calendar Function Giving This Site A Daily Boost Offers GOOD News For Readers and Advertisers

This offers readers a resourceful tool to finding music in their area, all around the state, every day of the week. I am committing myself to the new routine of finding new gigs to list and add to the calendars daily. Committed to adding a minimum of ten a day that means adding 70 gigs a week to these calendars.

Bands and venues are welcome to invite me to their events on Facebook or via email at ncmz.live@gmail.com. There is no cost to be listed on occasion, but please understand just like free music is not free, this free promotional service is not free either. It costs me a great amount of time. 

If you are a busy band or a thriving music venue, I want you! We can create a calendar for you and keep you in the zone! $250 a year and you can have all your events added to a personal calendar widget right here in the music zone. Advertisers will be responsible for providing the event’s content. 

Beside offering calendar options, NCMZ.LIVE also can create an active link for your website, or social media pages. Which also offers some live coverage for your live music events. For five years we have been building this site together and thanks to your suggestions and my commitment it keeps getting better. THANK YOU!

I will still bring you live coverage of the music scene around us in the random fashion we have become accustomed to in these five years of reporting. Without your support since September, none of this would be possible. So a big shout out and thank you to everyone who has extended a hand, offered a tip, bought me a meal or a beer, I love you all for the love you have shared with me! And every time I think I have to quit, you really have stepped up to help me keep the beats! Together we are building an awesome product that we can be proud of as we share it with our friends.

We Rocked the Scene Last Weekend and Bring Big News on More Music Starting this Week

On the Scene With Tracey Stones

 

Saturday We Bounce About Town

First Stop For Pizza Topped With Music

On Saturday night I started things off over in my neck of the woods, where Sara’s Big Apple welcomed Justin Castellano as the musical guest!

Castellano offered a variety of music in a fashion known to him, which is unlike any in our area! The classically trained stringer makes the most beautiful sounds with six strings. Here is a sample of his skill and grace. This song is written for his young son. This is “Sebastian’s Theme.”

Castellano keeps busy playing five nights or more, most weeks out of the year. He makes a great addition to any restaurant looking for dinner music. I always enjoy hearing him share songs and interact with his audience.

For fans and friends of the famed stringer, you can find him tonight and tomorrow evening at Boro Restaurant and Bar. Music is offered each night from 8-11 pm.

Big News and The Blues Served at Persimmons on Saturday

Earlier last week, Wendy Card and I met with Dean Quadi owner and Meghan Margarum manager, at Persimmons Restaurant. The meeting came about after I proposed interest in handling their music and advertising budgets via my company Tracey Stones Productions.

I set up the company on the intentions of serving the venues that are hosting live music. I am not interested in being a traditional band booking agent, as many bands would like. Hosting venues’ events calendars however, is of great interest to me. The reason being is there are a lot of places to apply my talents when booking and promoting music for the venue. My services alleviate the stress of finding, booking and paying the talent to play at an establishment. We meet about budgets and I take those figures and apply them to the process of supporting live music.

The goal is to bring as much music to as many places as possible, while connecting the masses to it. Finding the right music for the right room is key to this work. This blog that TSP publishes, is my broadcast to the world on the things I am doing with our music community! The bigger it grows the happier I become! In this quest, the restaurant is now committed to offering music four nights a week. It is my goal to show them how to grow that to include music each night.

Given all of that good news last week was groundbreaking for this blogger, as the storms clouds finally broke up after a long 11 months. Persimmons is the first venue to consider our services since the storm and I feel good about the opportunity. These last 11 months have been rather slow for Tracey Stones Productions

Much of that changed, when I reported for work on Saturday evening to promote The Carolina Swamp Dogs. It delighted my heart to hear Margarum tell me they would be happy for me to host the music. She went on to say, the owners have agreed to make a bigger commitment to bringing more music, which, btw sounded like music to my ears. Moving forward, the weather will no longer impact live performances, as they now have room to host music inside and upstairs. 

 

Gary Oles and Tommy Langlois are the duos best known as the Carolina Swamp Dogs. Based in Jacksonville, this duo offers authentic blues music for listeners to not only enjoy, but learn more about. Oles tells stories of the founding blues fathers, that gave us the traditions we are entrenched in today. Offering much of the vocal work, Oles plays harmonica and percussion, while Langlois offers the guitar and drums. He also sings a few selections during each set. With their focus on roots music, they always bring a good variety of fun music. This duo of retired Marines will be back in town this weekend and rocking The Brown Pelican tomorrow night. Music plays at 8-11 pm.

The Wannabees Bring the Rocking Good Times Following the Storm

The Wannabees were in town last Saturday night as well. The New Bern based rock quartet always have fun rocking their hometown friends and followers. And that is just what they did after a brief rain delay. Of course with playing outside, it can sometimes be a challenge, especially here in NC where pop up storms are commonplace and temperamental weather outbreaks are the rule of the Summer season. By 9 pm the boys were rocking and the deck was filled with eager fans, ready to dance the night away under the clearing sky. After days of rain, it was just what we all needed to usher us through Saturday night! 

The Wannabees have been a staple on the New Bern music scene, with Larry Swinson on guitar and vocals, Tod Stilley on guitar and vocals, Michael Bass on bass and vocals and behind the kit is one of the busiest drummers on the scene, Jason Patterson. The music makers get together a couple of times each month to offer music to their growing fan base. They rocked Blackbeard’s last Saturday and will return there again next Sunday for a publicly private engagement. Music starts at 6:30 and plays til 10 PM.

♦♥♥♥♥♦

Sunday Jazz Offers A Soothing End to The Week

It was the Andrea Owens Jazz Ensemble that offered the dinner music for Sunday’s Jazz on the deck at Persimmons. Music is served for diners from 5:30-7:30 pm and they have a rotation of stellar offerings. This quartet blends the talents of husband Phil Owens on guitar and his beautiful bride Andrea on vocals, Chris Morden on the upright bass and Richard Farrell on the bongos. Together they offered the soothing sounds that carry you away. This quartet is back on the schedule for next Sunday, September 1, 2019. Music on Sunday is right on time for dinner and the view is spectacular. Make a date to be there.

Saturday Storms Cancel Music So We Go To Pirate Invasion in Beaufort, Plus Music Options for Friday Night

On The Scene with Tracey Stones

A Stormy Saturday  

Always up for a grand adventure, I recently went sailing with Ken, a new resident to our beloved City of Bears. We had our first outing just days before, where I learned some boat lingo and watched, as he did all of the work. Then on Saturday, the lessons continued when we were joined by his friends. We set out mid-afternoon and about an hour or so into the excursion the storm that was off in Jacksonville, according to several radar reports, developed on top of us and Mother Nature offered quite a display of force. I am grateful to our captain Ken Byrd and first mate Dave Hadden for braving the hail keeping us safe in the brutal weather. Following the wicked wind and hail ordeal, we decided to take in some live music!

When You See A Flock Of Seagulls…Storm is Coming

I was looking forward to hanging around town last Saturday night until the afternoon storm rolled in and changed our plans. I was really hoping to keep it local and enjoy live music on the deck at Persimmons with friends but instead, we rolled to Beaufort after Saturday’s brutal storms to check out the Pirate Invasion.

℘℘℘℘

The Black Sheep Beaufort, Pirate Invasion, Pizza and The Shoaldiggers

The Pirate Invasion took place last weekend throughout the town of Beaufort. This is the weekend that they reenact the sinking of Blackbeard’s Ship and the street fills with pirates. There is lots of fun for the family at this annual event and one of the great highlights is the festive music.  We made our way to the Black Sheep where we settled in for some delicious pizza and music by The Shoaldiggers. 

This nine-piece ensemble hails from Hillborough and offers an eclectic variety of music.  I would sum up their sound as Celtic bluegrass with a zydeco swamp stylings thrown in. They were a perfect fit for the pirate invasion. They performed as an eight-piece on Saturday night and surrendered a mix of uniquely offered cover songs and original selections as well.

The bands first disc was released a couple of years ago and offers 14 songs for your listening pleasure. If I were to pick a favorite, I would say “Fix Shit Up” gets the honor. I even like the name! I  was glad they offered me a disc before I left that evening. It is on the disc jacket that I learned The Shoaldiggers are comprised of  Daryl White on bass and vocals, Chris Knotts on guitar and vocals, Stephen Beck on mandolin and guitar and vocals, Jim Adams percussion, harmonica, and vocals, Gary Lanson banjo, and vocals, Allison Zirkel sax, saw and vox Ben Zirkel, trumpet Johnny Wall Jr drums and vocals and Meighen Carmichael on vocals,

You can check them out on Facebook by following this link: The Shoaldiggers on Facebook. The band has a couple of gigs on the books next weekend should you find yourself in Carrboro on Friday night or Wake Forest on Saturday evening. Those events are all spelled out with details on their page. Give it a like while you are there. Your ears will appreciate their appetite of serving up a blend of sounds.

Phantom Playboys Turn Cru Bar On Its Ear 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

At this point, I’d venture to say that one of my favorite traditions of Pirate Invasion weekend is the Saturday night entertainment at Cru Bar and Wine Store/Beaufort Coffee Shop. They always welcome the fun sounds and party grooves of the rockabilly band out of Wilmington, The Phantom Playboys. This five-piece ensemble has fun every time they bring it to Beaufort. They will make you swing and dance as you get lost in their grooves. They offer mostly original works that offer listeners a fun and inviting feel as you dance to tunes you never heard before.

They have two discs available for purchase and it became clear to me that they are probably ready to head back into the studio as they shared a number of new works with the audience last weekend.  To check out some of the news songs, be sure to head to Surf City tonight. The Phantom Playboys will rock JM’s Pub starting at 9 PM. Tomorrow the band is rocking around the home base and bringing it to Salty Dogs Tavern in Wilmington with the fun starting at 8 PM. Check out the band on Facebook by following this link:
