ABOUT PORCH 40
Porch 40 delivers a hip take on modern Rock & Pop with funky undertones that highlight their clever arrangements. The band formed in 2012 at Western Carolina University where word of their unforgettable live performances quickly attracted regional attention and a loyal, growing following. From festivals like the famous Bele Chere in Asheville and the highly touted Sweetwater 420 Fest in Atlanta, to clubs across the southeast including The House of Blues in New Orleans, The Orange Peel in Asheville, and The Fillmore in Charlotte, the band has a committed and wildly dedicated fan base.
Porch 40 is especially known for their extraordinarily intense live shows and high level of musicianship. The band is made up of Scott Burr on vocals/saxophone, Andrew Duncan on vocals/rhythm guitar, Carter McDevitt on vocals/bass, Mitchell Metz on vocals/violin, and Brett Wilson on drums. They have shared the stage and performed with Blues Traveler, Galactic, The Doobie Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band, REO Speedwagon, Leftover Salmon, Jackie Greene, Tauk, Big Something, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, The Suffers, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and more.
One of the most original and talented bands to come out of North Carolina, Porch 40’s engaging songs and energetic shows make them favorites everywhere they perform.
ABOUT MAJ DEEKA
Combining the skills of four of Raleigh’s most versed musicians, Maj Deeka formed in early 2018 when Evan Bost asked his dear friend and musical mentor Andy Blair to join the rhythm section of Matt Kirk and Ryan Masecar for a dynamic jam that traversed musical styles and emotions seamlessly. The group proved to be a natural fit, and a high-octane quartet was born.
This latest addition to the Triangle area music scene exhibits all the qualities needed in a prolific jam band: a collective ear for interesting harmony and melody, a rock-solid groove, chops on hand when the music calls for notes, and the time-earned sensibility to know how to take a piece of music and turn it into something bigger than the sum of its parts. Whether the occasion calls for a showcase of pensive songwriting or extended musical exploration, Maj Deeka delivers with passion and calculated execution.
