June 4th Concert Details:
• The Herbie Jeffcoat Projekt (opener)
The Herbie Jeffcoat Projekt, originating in Columbia, SC, exemplifies a liquefied mix of genres. The band consists of Herbie Jeffcoat (a rock guitarist), Whitney Keen (a gospel drummer), Brian Sansbury (a jazz pianist), and Mike Mills (a metal bassist). The Projekt is guaranteed to twist your head off with their unique funk fusion style.
• Atlas Road Crew (headliner)
South Carolina rock ‘n’ roll, shot with southern soul accents. Formed in the fall of 2011, Atlas Road Crew is rapidly building one of the most loyal fan bases on the east coast, packing venues to capacity from South Carolina to New York City, and expanding quickly to major US cities in between. The overwhelming positive response to the band’s latest recorded effort, Halfway to Hopkins, produced by Grammy Award winning producer Rick Beato, has this young band quickly becoming the south east’s “must see” live act of 2017.
• Bois Obscur (closing DJ)
Bois Obscur hails from Columbia, SC and adds a unique twist to his sets, blending late 90’s and early 2000’s hip-hop/R&B with new club ready beats, as well as new electronic club music. No stranger to the big stage, he has opened for the likes of Skrillex and Charlotte, NC duo Styles&Complete. Unlike typical “house music,” Bois enjoys meandering in and out of tracks quickly to keep the set “alive”, as he puts it.
• Brain Freeze Italian Ice – offering Italian Ice in assorted flavors, as well as kettle corn
• The Belgian Waffle Truck – offering assorted gourmet Belgian waffles
• Pawleys Front Porch Food Truck – offering selections from their Five Points menu
Craft and Civic Vendors:
• Cinnamon Creations, Columbia Dog Wizard, Emerald’s Artistry Face Painting, Gymboree Play & Music, Hippy Do Da Creations, Orange Theory Fitness, SC Wildflours, and Sun Salt Moon
