South Hill Banks

Join us at the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Mills River on Sunday, October 28th from 2pm to 5pm for a free show with Carly South Hill Banks.

South Hill Banks – Lance Thomas (vocals, guitar), Eric Horrocks (mandolin, vocals), Ryan Horrocks (banjo), Dan Fiasconaro (guitar, vocals), and Matt Eversole (upright bass) – have carved a niche for themselves with their genre-bending psychedelic bluegrass sound. Formed in August 2015 in Richmond, Virginia, South Hill Banks pulls from a wide range of influences such as Phish, Tony Rice, The Grateful Dead, Doc Watson, and Sam Bush to keep audiences entertained with a blend of sounds old and new.

Since the release of their debut album, Riverside Dr., South Hill Banks have taken the east coast by storm, headlining a multitude of medium to large-sized venues and working aside national touring groups with a devoted and ever-growing fan base following every step of the way.

Lindsay Lou

Lindsay Lou has been making beautiful, soul-shaking music for the last decade with her band The Flatbellys, though 2018 marks what might be the biggest year for the band. Now with four albums under their belts - 2010’s Lindsay Lou, A Different Tune, 2012’s Release Your Shrouds, and 2015’s Ionia - the band just release their latest, a transformative and heart-wrenching album titled Southland. The identity for this particular record - the beauty with which its sound slips into the ether - didn’t come by crazy random happenstance. The year leading up to its recording, 2016, was a trying year emotionally for several of the band members so - after taking a beat to really delve into the roots of it all - the band is re-emerging with material written during that time in a cathartic and transformative light.

Raised with a sense of community that was cultivated by a humble but culturally enriched and musical family, Lindsay is an absolute powerhouse. Her singing seems to float over the instrumental mastery and deep groove of her band soulfully fierce intensity and a tender intimacy that demands your attention. In the words of David Grier, “Lindsay…sings the way you would want to if you could. Phrasing, tone, emotion, it’s all there. Effortless seemingly. Simply mesmerizing. Riveting! Don’t miss the musical force that is Lindsay Lou.” Her sound is made even more recognizable by talented multi-instrumentalists and harmony singers; Joshua Rilko, PJ George and Jeff Wilson.

Decades

Since 2010, Decades (based in Chico, CA) has been working (and rocking) around the clock to learn material spanning from the 1940’s (Glenn Miller’s Orchestra’s “In The Mood”) to today (Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk”). The band has played over 700 shows all along the West Coast, and are well on their way to booking another 100+ shows for 2018, earning its place as one of California’s most in-demand bands. Throughout a single show, they’ll swap between several instruments (including saxophone, harmonica, trumpet to name a few) and belt out four part harmonies, showcasing each members’ musical versatility, while continuing to put on a highly energetic live show.

Decades is bringing their amazing show to throw an epic Halloween Party in the Big Room! Costumes strongly encouraged!
