About the 2014 Bass Mountain Boogie Festival

“The Bass Mountain Boogie, ‘Boogie’ for short, is three days of Party Bands!” Wilson said. “It’s a new festival, in its first year, but it is taking place on the same grounds where the thirty-year-running Little John’s Bluegrass Festival is held, the Cane Creek Campground in Snow Camp, NC.”

The Boogie will have noted bands performing, including the three mentioned above, Nantucket, The Embers featuring Craig Woolard, Jim Quick & Coastline, Hip Pocket and the Megan Doss Band among others.

The drive time to the Cane Creek Campground in Snow Creek NC is 20 minutes from Siler City, about 30 minutes from Mebane, Pittsboro, Carrboro and Chapel Hill; 50 minutes from Apex, Durham and Sanford; an hour from Cary and longer from Raleigh.

Where can we get tickets?
  • 97.9 FM and 1360 AM WCHL will do weekly giveaways at their morning and afternoon programs. Listen online here:
  • The Music Loft in Carrboro – mention “The Tokyo Gift” and see what happens
  • Ask Greg Lewis, owner of the Pittsboro Roadhouse, at the Roadhouse
  • Email
What do tickets cost? No charge.
  • The tickets are free, but since this is a live-to-disc radio show, recorded live for syndicated radio shows internationally, we need to limit them to a focused audience, there for the music and the show.
Who can come? You.
  • With a ticket in hand, guests are welcome. Because the show is recording live, our audience will need to be listening and not talking during the show. Some children are comfortable sitting quietly and listening, others less so. Please keep that in mind in deciding who to bring with you.
Last Minute Tickets? Yes.
Can we order food and / or drinks while listening to the Tokyo Rosenthal Program? Yes – Come Early.
  • If you would like to have dinner, desserts or an appetizer, we invite you to come before the show, perhaps at 7:00 or 6:30 to have a leisurely meal. Out of respect to the producers of the show, we think you may want to order any drinks before the show begins recording.
How long is the show? 1 Hour
  • The show will start at 8 pm and run about an hour, though recording time may be slightly less than an hour. At present we do not know if there will be a break, or if we will be recording straight through the hour.
What radio stations will carry the show? WCHL & Others
  •  WCHL in Chapel Hill is the show’s flagship station.
  • Negotiations are in progress with other radio shows and Tokyo has agreements with several already.
When will WCHL air the show? 3PM Weekends Starting June 14.
