The Crown at the Carolina, located on the third floor, started its life as the 1927 vaudeville theatre’s original sign shop, churning out iconic posters and ads for early touring shows and movies. After spending the decades that followed as a storage area, the space underwent its first phase of renovation to open to the public as The Crown in September 2013.

Now a high-tech, flexible performance space, The Crown is celebrated for its delicate acoustics, inviting ambiance, intimate setting, as well as its accessibility to the Triad’s performing arts community. Warm, exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and huge lead-paned windows (original to the building) bring the room its natural, historic, up-cycled “cool” factor.

Sweet Dream is a Greensboro, NC-based psychedelic power pop fusion group, a genre designation that is fitting of their recordings. On stage however, you never know what you’re going to get — virtuosic playing, extra jams, total improvisation, jazz standards, and sometimes even straight power pop and rock ‘n’ roll.

Sweet Dream is the musical brainchild of guitarist, vocalist, and bandleader Julian Creech-Pritchett. Filling out the live band are Ramon Garcia on bass and Xavier Ware on drums. In the studio, Creech-Pritchett generally plays everything, aside from listed features on various songs.

At the Nexus of R&B and neo-soul, Elora Dash emerges as a multifaceted artist — a musician, vocalist, vocal coach, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. Her voice effortlessly scales the heights and explores the depths, while her music resonates with an adventurous spirit that captivates listeners.

From Greensboro, North Carolina, Ashley Virginia is an artist who has gained attention for her unique songwriting style of introspective poetry and interesting harmonic structure. Like the spiritual daughter of Stevie Nicks and Paul McCartney, her style falls somewhere between ’70s Country Cool, West Coast Cosmic Americana, and ‘60s Rock ‘n’ Roll. Grammy award-winning songwriter, Emmylou Harris, categorized Ashley Virginia’s writing as “unique and unusual”.
