Grammy Award-winning bassist Trae Pierce is leading a wild new musical experience known as
Trae Pierce & the T-Stones (TPTS). Defined by hard-edged funk and hip-hop mixed with rock
and blues, TPTS has developed a high-energy live show with a modern feel that also recalls the
unstoppable grooves of Bootsy Collins: they “wants to funk you up!” Trae is a world-class
bassist and four-time Grammy Award-winner (with the legendary Blind Boys of Alabama) who
cut his bass chops as a member of The Ohio Players.
From his Florida home, this bass “monster” has hand-picked a vibrant young group of musicians
with limitless energy and extreme talent, and together they’ve been tearing up dance floors
throughout the Southeast with a genre-blending twist of funk-rock rhythms that bring out the
best in every beat. After sharing the stage with funk powerhouses George Clinton, Parliament
Funkadelic, The Revivalists, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and
The Main Squeeze among others, TPTS is ready to take their party to you.
Don’t miss them Saturday, August 19th on the Amphitheater Stage in Mills River, NC at 7pm.
