No we’re not talking about transporting Llamas in a bag, or a bag of Llama wool, this is a band of seasoned musicians from Durham NC.
They play original and Llama-lized classic and alternative rock. That’s what they say “llama-lized.”
“It’s time-travel rock and roll from the 60s to today! Enjoy Llama-flavored Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow, Lifehouse, The Black Keys, Jason Derulo, Melissa Ethridge, Maroon 5 and more!”
GrayMatter is a Burlington based band of singers and string players with a great acoustic sound filled with fine harmonies. Bev, Barry and Brad grew up singing with their Dad at home. They loved the harmonies of Peter, Paul & Mary, the Kingston Trio and the music of Bob Dylan. Bev’s husband Dave Gude is the 4th band member. Check out a song sampler on their website.

“Chip Perry is a singer/songwriter born and raised in the small town of Siler City, North Carolina. After a few years of playing acoustic gigs alone, in 2013, Chip formed a band to accompany him on stage. During the short time on the road they have played with national acts such as the Chris Lane Band, Outshyne, Old Southern Moonshine Revival and many more. The band is currently in studio working on their full band demo which they hope to release in the fall. Chip plans to continue his music career playing locally as much as possible and hoping to expand into a national act in the future.” – ReverbNation Chip Perry – Artist Bio

The Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store, the largest restaurant in Pittsboro, North Carolina, and the top combined restaurant / music venue in the greater Chapel Hill area, announced that it will be open every Sunday beginning October, 2015.
“For our first three years, people wanted us to be open every Sunday, but we needed a day off while establishing The Roadhouse. Now, with more resources in-house, we are pleased to be able to open,” said Chef Greg Lewis, owner of The Pittsboro Roadhouse since the summer of 2012.
For the past two years, with encouragement from the Pittsboro Business Association, the Pittsboro Roadhouse opened on First Sundays, as part of Pittsboro First Sunday, providing plenty of indoor space for larger groups, restrooms and a comfortable lounge for visitors, in addition to a tasty lunch, mimosas and Bloody Mary’s.
“Brunch was a hit,” Lewis said, “and we’ve been under pressure to open open every Sunday, ever since.” A number of times when holding meetings in the Roadhouse on a Sunday morning or afternoon, guests would knock on the door hoping they were open, Lewis told us.

Listen to a playlist of John’s music on YouTube
John Westmoreland (guitar) grew up in Pittsboro, NC playing blues and rock in various groups. In his late teens he began playing jazz and eventually studied jazz performance and classical composition.
A native North Carolinian with deep roots in the blues, John Westmoreland is a multidimensional musician. He studied jazz and classical composition at Berklee College of Music where he was also a recipient of the BEST scholarship. His teachers have been some of the foremost in the nation, including: Scott Sawyer of Raleigh NC, Jon Damian inventor of the Rubber Tellie and author of “The Guitarists Guide to Composing and Improvising,” and most recently he had the opportunity to study with the world renowned Malian virtuoso Djelimady Tounkara. He’s also attended a number of master classes including a workshop and performance with legendary jazz guitarist Jim Hall.
In 2011 John started collaborating with Senegalese griot Diali Cissokho who introduced him to the rich, captivating music of West Africa. It wasn’t long before they were playing together in the NC based band Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba, and also performing together as a duo exploring the beautiful soundscapes of guitar and kora. As a solo artist he plays his own dynamic, and sensitive interpretations— interweaving jazz standards, African traditional music, Blues, Bach, the American Songbook, as well as his own original compositions.
Always looking for new and interesting directions to take his craft, he also provides improvisational accompaniment for yoga classes, and is currently exploring other ways that music can facilitate healing and personal growth.
John is also a member of this band: http://www.kairabamusic.com/about/john-westmoreland/
Listen to the great dancing sound of the Ellerbe Creek Band playing Saturday August 26, 2015 at the Pittsboro Roadhouse.
“In 2009, 5 childhood friends from Durham got together to reconnect and have a little fun playing the classic songs and singing the sweet harmonies that they grew up loving. What started out as just a once a week hobby quickly turned into a desire to go out and share these great classics with the rest of the Triangle. A few years and several shows later, we are still putting smiles on faces playing all the great tunes from days gone by. If you grew up in the 60’s, 70’s, or 80’s, you will love taking a trip down memory lane with The Ellerbe Creek Band.”
