St. Paul & the Broken Bones

Bud Light / Fox 102.3 Stage

Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, this 8-piece soul-rock group takes you on a journey through the 60’s and 70’s with influences from Bowie, Prince, and Nick Cave. Formed in 2012, Paul Janeway has led the band throughout the U.S. with his impassioned singing and writing. The horn-driven sound is complimented by a string quartet and lyrics about Janeway’s southern upbringing and feeling like an alien in the modern world. As a recent opener for the Rolling Stones, this band is sure to make you dance and convince you that they truly love to perform live.

Michael Ray

Miller Lite / WCOS 97.5 Stage

Mentored by John Rich of Big & Rich, Michael Ray’s songs rely more on emotion and lyrics than heavy beats. From Florida, his album is influenced strongly from artists who call the same region home. He tells the blue collared tales of everyday people with his rocker-country vibe. The promising up-and-comer has opened for big names like Sam Hunt, Darius Rucker, and Brantley Gilbert and has extended his tour due to his increasing sold-out shows.

Superchunk

Bud Light / Fox 102.3 Stage

Formed in 1989, this North Carolina band has released a total of 10 albums heavily influenced by the punk scene of the 90’s. Superchunk had been crucial in an indie rock uprising that took root not long after its singer was born. They boast a satisfying mixture of punchy punk, aggression, and fantastic song-writing. Even at their heaviest, they are still able to add an element of fun to their live shows, playing in big name festivals like Lollapalooza.

Drivin' N Cryin' band photo

Drivin' N Cryin'

Green's Beverages / Rock 99.7 Stage

This Atlanta based band has spent more than 30 years recording and touring together. Drivin’ N Cryin’ have kept the indie rock flame burning bright for all these years, and while they aren’t the darlings of the arena circuit as they were in the day, Kevin Kinney’s vision and songwriting haven’t wavered a bit — still pushing forward, not resting on their past, still creating vital, powerful music. Their mix of hard rock and southern-style boogie has been featured on FX’s hit show Archer and has graced the stages of many other area festivals.

Stage Schedule 2017

Catch all of your favorites with a little luck 'o the Irish.

Originally from Chicago, quickly after its creation Los Colognes moved to Nashville to be closer to music that first inspired them. From there, they have released two albums featuring rootsy, country- and blues-tinged classic rock. Their music ignores all recent trends and any ideas of coolness and just goes straight for being really good. No stranger to festival stages, they recently announced they will be playing at big name festivals like Lockn’ and Sasquatch.

The Social Animals are a full time, van-living young band. They speak through elegantly sarcastic, thoughtful lyrics with memorable melodies splattered across a canvas of indie rock instrumentation. They don’t do backflips at their live shows or slide across their knees into guitar solos. Instead, they play their music passionately and honestly, carrying both the intensity to move feet and the delicacy to keep them still. Between songs, their dry commentary on the status of their lives and the world around them appeals to the type of person who, perhaps, spends time actually reading through a band bio.

Hailing from Columbia, SC, the band distills elements of funky pop and rock into a hypnotic hybrid. VillaNova prides itself on making music with solid grooves and soulful, dynamic lyrics provided by lead vocalist/guitarist/song writer BC VillaNova, fluid and funky bass lines by Bobby Dredd bombastic fantastic, rock solid drummer (and backing vocals) Young Sean, amazing harmony vocals and rhythm guitar by Brandon Hooker, and turntable wizardry and keyboards by DJ Able One. Their infectious sound has earned them thousands of fans nationwide.

Playing at some of the most popular live music venues around South Carolina, Lauren has gained experience in entertaining large crowds and continues to draw new listeners to her shows. Lauren and her band have played at various music festivals such as The First Flush Festival, headlined by Sheryl Crow, and many private events, one in which they had the opportunity to open for American Idol Season 10 winner, Scotty McCreery. Lauren’s writing influence comes from her love and connection with the songwriting style of Taylor Swift, Alison Krauss, The Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain and Faith Hill.

See Water is the love child of reggae and punk rock. This up-and-coming band from Charleston, SC will take your ears on a roller-coaster ride through laid-back jams and hard-hitting rock riffs. Their style is similar to that of a mosh-pit on the beach at sunset.

Moose Kick is a five piece southern rock/funk band out of South Carolina. The band began during the winter of 2013 and since they spend their days touring, writing & practicing to effectively share their music with the world. Since releasing their album 'Blue Room Revival' in October of 2014 with producer Trevor Maron, the band has taken their talent to the road touring the eastern half of the country routinely.

Marytree is a grungemetal three-piece from Charleston, SC, comprised of James George on guitar/vocals, Brandon Hicks on bass/vocals and David Dietze on drums. James has a love of all things Pacific Northwestern, including Nirvana, the Melvins, Alice in Chains, Jimi Hendrix, and from elsewhere, Black Sabbath, Suicidal Tendencies and of course, the mighty Foo Fighters. Brandon's roots are more in the realms of punk rock, consequently adding an interesting twist on Marytree's music and on stage, one with LOTS of energy! His influences include Type O Negative, Life of Agony, Rancid, NoFX, Stance Punks, Blitzkid, Big Reel Fish, etc. Dietze brings a heavier, more metal element to the band. His influences include Metallica, Faith No More, Slayer, Testament, Anthrax, etc., but his drum style is definitely influenced by Dave Grohl. Dietze likes his tunage extra crunchy! Three different sets of influences that overlap and compliment each other to bring about a balance between 'power and pretty', at least that's the intent.

The history between the members existed long before the group became The High Divers. Luke (lead vocals and guitar) and Kevin Early (bass and backing vocals) played together in a 60’s and 70’s cover band at the ages of 14. Drummer Julius DeAngelis was recruited fresh out of high school by a Southern Rock band, and hit the road for a year of touring before joining up with Luke and Kevin. Mary Alice Connor joined the group just as the band arrived in Charleston, and filled the need for piano and additional vocals. With a wide range of influences, and thousands of hours logged, The High Divers create music that nods to the southern rebelliousness of Tom Petty, the raw beauty of Neil Young, and the genre clashing of Wilco, yet is leaning forward all the time.

After a short hiatus, All Get Out came back better than ever with their releases of Movement and Nobody Likes a Quitter. Originally from South Carolina, the band worked on their latest album release with Manchester Orchestra. Perhaps what the band is best at is writing songs that are adaptable to any situation the listener is in. With a feeling of 2000’s punk, a waning guitar and an explosion of instrumentals just adds to the all-around good feeling as the crowd feels at an All Get Out show.

Headlining the 2016 Chili Cook-Off, Drivin’ N Cryin’ is no stranger to Five Points events. This Atlanta based band has spent more than 30 years recording and touring together. Drivin’ N Cryin’ have kept the indie rock flame burning bright for all these years, and while they aren’t the darlings of the arena circuit as they were in the day, Kevin Kinney’s vision and songwriting haven’t wavered a bit — still pushing forward, not resting on their past, still creating vital, powerful music. Their mix of hard rock and southern-style boogie has been featured on FX’s hit show Archer and has graced the stages of many other area festivals.

Little Bird, hailing from Annapolis, MD and calling Charleston, SC home for two years now, tours throughout the eastern half of the country. They blend surf rock, jazz, and Americana into a high energy killer live show. In 2015 & 2016 the band played and headlined festivals such as Bayfunk, Pink Moon, Silopanna, Doah, EastPortaRockin' and more. Along with sharing stage on show bills with names like G. Love & Special Sauce, Pressing Strings, Long Miles, Fortunate Youth, and many more.

From Charleston, SC, this hardworking local band has logged serious miles honing their sound: a mix of potent songwriting and fiery country chops, doused with a few shots of whiskey. With the help of a seasoned crew of local talent, singer Slaton Glover delivers a musical message of hellfire and heartbreak, leaving it all on the stage at every performance.

Tuatha Dea, the Celtic, tribal, gypsy rock band from Gatlinburg, TN has been called pure primal energy with a Celtic and rock twist. The bands’ eclectic sound blends the tribal vibe of primitive drums with conventional and non-conventional instruments to create a real evolutionary musical crossover that defies category and genre. Combining primal rhythms, melodic and ethereal ballads, screaming guitar riffs with an Appalachian/Celtic vibe, this family - born of a family drum circle - delivers an authentic tribal and clannish feel that not only draws the audience into the music but into the moment as well.

While the chosen name for this electric songwriting duo may be simple, their songs are not so simplistic. Growing up in rural South Carolina the brothers’ learned to draw from their surroundings, blending the sounds of Soul, Rock & Roll, and Americana. Their music is both decidedly dark, and yet light in nature. In 2013, they were handpicked by the Blues legend B.B. King, to be the touring opener for a few of his Southeastern Summer tour dates. Over the years they have played at festivals like 420 Fest in Atlanta and even headlining at 2012’s St. Pat’s in Five Points.

The Dirty Gone Dolas have been playing music around Columbia, South Carolina with each other in bands such as Pocket Buddha and The Prairie Willows for some time now. The current band was formed with the desire to play Americana tunes - original, folk, and covers - in a string band format. The Dirty Gone Dolas feature Kristen Harris on fiddle, Branhan Lowther (from Slim Pickens) on guitar, Zachariah Jones on mandolin, and Darren Woodlief on doghouse bass, with vocals, both lead and harmony, by all.

Cosmic Possums is a bluegrass band (kind of). It looks like a bluegrass band, but doesn't really act like one. These guys used to play every Thursday in the parking lot of a burrito restaurant, where they entertained thousands (if not billions) of very happy people. The band is very special and strange and good. The guys who make it up are amazing people - there's a national champion banjo player and a national champion mandolin player in the group. Super pickers who might kinda blow your mind.

With a good mixture of quirky and serious, The Post-Timey String Band produce an interesting blend of folk, ragtime, and blues that hails influence from the old and the new. Kelley creates the picture with her vocals/kazoo/mouth trumpet and keeps everything in line with her guitar/ukulele/banjo while Sean colors everything in with an assortment of stringed instruments.

The Boomtown Waifs are a conglomeration of some of the finest acoustic musicians in Columbia, SC. Their unique blend of folk, blues, bluegrass, and old time mountain music showcases the energetic and soulful power of their vocal and instrumental talents.

Bois Obscur hails from Columbia, SC and adds a unique twist to his sets, blending late 90’s and early 2000’s hip-hop/R&B with new club ready beats, as well as new electronic club music. No stranger to the big stage, he has opened for the likes of Skrillex and Charlotte, NC duo Styles&Complete. “I like to DJ familiar tunes that the crowd will know, mixed with a beat that they’ve never heard. It’s really neat to see people in the crowd reacting to a song that they know and can sing to, but not sound like they remember. It creates a magical experience on the dance floor,” he says. Unlike typical “house music,” Bois enjoys meandering in and out of tracks quickly to keep the set “alive”, as he puts it.

Dylan Deekay has been passionately mixing and creating music since 2006. As a music deejay, entertainer, and certified sound engineer, he has been mesmerized by electronic music since he can remember. Dylan has appeared at every venue in Columbia, SC and is slowly taking over North Carolina. He remains active in the underground scene, appearing at warehouse parties and renegade events around the east coast. Come out and experience why Dylan Deekay continues to captivate the crowd every time he steps behind the tables.

GuyL, born Guy Archer Lugenbeel Jr. is a mainstay in Columbia’s electronic dance music scene. He has opened for Yellow Claw, Whiiite, Knife Party, 12th Planet, and Noisia. His influences are Rusko, Bassnectar, Bro Safari, and Flume. Playing underground dance music to mainstream mashups he doesn’t shy away from entertaining anyone having fun.

Trap / Hip-hop / Dub
