About the Harvey Dalton Arnold Band


The Harvey Dalton Arnold Band exploded onto the North Carolina music scene just two months after forming, winning the 2011 Triangle Blues Society Competition and representing the state in the prestigious 2011 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. The band has been rocking & rolling audiences ever since.

The band’s debut delighted Blues and R&B fans, capturing new audiences wherever they played.

The Swang Brothers

It’s always a good time when The Swang Brothers hit the stage. Hailing from Carrboro, North Carolina, USA, they are a happening band.

The Swang Brothers performed at the Pittsboro Roadhouse on Friday May 8, 2015

The Swang Brothers play American music from the 50s and 60s, combining a heady mix of traditional country, rockabilly, pop, and blues. The three-piece outfit of thumping upright bass, driving acoustic guitar and twanging electric guitar covers a diverse array of artists including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Conway Twitty, George Jones, Johnny Horton, Englebert Humperdinck, Gene Vincent, Neil Diamond , Merle Haggard, Chet Atkins, and many others while mixing in some choice original tunes to round it all out. The band can turn on a dime, playing an all-out rockabilly rave-up one moment, then downshifting into a country ballad the next, followed by a burning instrumental number.

Their sound is similar to these bands: Michael Nesmith, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jerry Jeff Walker, Eagles, Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefers

This is a group of veteran musicians that play just for the fun of it all. While each of them has brushed up against fame and fortune only to collide with the realities of the music business, the goal now is to revisit the sheer joy of making music in the company of friends.

Local Vocal Band

The Local Vocal Band performs light rock tunes, primarily from the late 60s through the 70s. We cover songs from a variety of well-known performers from that classic era. Many songs you will immediately recognize; others are those really great “B” side tunes that may actually include some of the original artist’s best work. All songs highlight strong vocal performances and most capture the finely tuned 3 part harmonies that were featured in so many great songs from that time.

Shoot To Thrill – All Female AC/DC Tribute

Shoot To Thrill On Stage PerformingMembers: Tara – vocals Susan – guitar Mary Anne/Karrin- bass Wendy- guitar Amanda – drums

Genre: Rock, Blues, Classic Rock, Tribute

Hometown: Raleigh, NC

Shoot to Thrill is a female tribute to AC/DC. Not only are the girls professional musicians with impeccable skills, they are also quite easy on the eyes and full of energy for an entertaining stage show!
The girls decided on AC/DC in particular according to rhythm guitarist Wendy because “it’s a marriage of compelling music and creative story-telling.  The guitar work is intricate yet not overplayed, while the rhythms are driving and dynamic.  The silence is as important as the noise and the lyrics are relatable and captivating.  You just HAVE to sing along!…. or air-guitar…. or BOTH!” They decided to do a full tribute rather than a cover band according to lead guitarist Susan because “a tribute is much more challenging. You play many songs by the same artist and really reach inside that artist copying not only their playing style but also their signature stage moves. It’s really quite an art and very rewarding when you make it all come together”. 

From classical to blues to metal and everything in between, singer Tara nails it all. She is a sultry and fiery singer and extends her passion to her live audiences everywhere. Guitarist Susan joins the band from the New York City scene. She’s played face melting solos at clubs like CBGBs and the Continental. Rhythm guitarist Wendy joins the band from the original music scene. Wendy is an accomplished singer/guitarist/songwriter who has had songs in movies and on Lifetime TV. Her musical gifts even landed her face on The Tonight Show where Jay Leno described her as “a hottie”. The drummer lineup has been a little more dramatic. There were the ones who combusted spontaneously and those that choked on other people’s vomit. But these days, Amanda keeps it steady, parties cautiously, and avoids open flames.

The girls look forward to meeting you and rocking you into an unbelievable frenzy of good times!
