Bag of Llamas – Nov 21

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!”

About the Band of Oz

“The Band of Oz was formed in 1967 as a part-time band playing fraternity parties and high school proms all over the South. In 1977 the band went on the road full time. Since that time the band has made an exceptional name for itself throughout the Southeast by playing the top clubs and corporate parties, and getting excellent reviews along the way. For several years the group has been a guest on most of the major beach concerts in the Carolinas, Virginia, and Georgia.

The Band of Oz is one of the most successful groups in the Southeast, and continues to get the very best reviews from the top people in the entertainment business. The band now features a full horn section to total a dynamic eight-member group. They still perform well over two-hundred shows per year for corporate events, festivals, concerts, wedding receptions, and many other public and private events.

“[They had]  humble beginnings in eastern North Carolina (Grifton) . It was a bunch of grammar and junior high school guys (because no one was old enough to drive) being hauled around in Ray Houston’s Chevy station wagon pulling a little red trailer. The group at that time was called The Avengers.”

“The Band of Oz released their latest CD ” Over the Rainbow ” They feel it is one of, if not their best work ever.

In March 2005, Band of Oz owners Keith Houston and David Hicks decided to bring a new, youthful sound to the band after Butch Barnes announced that he would be leaving in April 2005. At that time, Scott Fine /Vocals and Trombone, Tim Morris /Vocals and Trumpet, and Daniel Morris /Saxophone and Vocals joined the Band of Oz to bring a new youth and a BIG new sound to the band.”

Graymatter – Nov 7

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.
