Gage Brothers

Hailing from Akron, OH, The Gage Brothers started in Spring of 2014. Two brothers, Zach Gage and Ben Gage began creating a unique folk sound with traditional Americana roots influences.

In 2015 the brothers met two others. Chris Volpe (banjo) and Brendan O’Malley (mandolin). The two joined in to create a 4 piece experience with high level instrumental musicianship and vocal harmonies that fit just right.

Now two brothers and some others, The Gage Brothers are a tight group focused on out of this world vocal harmonies and lightning fast fingers to back it up.

Don’t miss them Sunday, August 13th on the Amphitheater Stage in Mills River, NC at 2pm.

Trae Pierce & The T-Stones

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.
