Andrew Scotchie & The River Rats

Andrew Scotchie & The River Rats formed in Asheville NC around early 2011 as a street busking project. Jumpstarted from several songs written by Asheville NC native, Andrew Scotchie, The River Rats have evolved from a stripped down guitar/harmonica duo to 5 piece rock soul and blues band with a fiery live show and a horn section to top it all off.

Andrew and the Rats have been sharing the stage with national acts such as Sonny Landreth, Big Sams Funky Nation and Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds and been featured at staple music festivals such as Bristol Rythym and Roots, Columbia Blues Festival, Awendawe Green and Asheville Barnaroo.

Saturday, March 12-The Beech Tree Bar and Grille @7:30pm

Nappy Roots

Nappy Roots entered the music scene in 1998 and they have remained real, humble, talented guys with inherent, undeniable southern swagger. After the international success of their album Watermelon, Chicken, & Grits, selling over 3 million albums, the members of Nappy Roots were flying high while still acutely aware of how far it could be to the bottom should they fall. It is that practical and genuine presence of mind that helped them sustain touring as a group these last ten years. Building a vastly loyal fan-base nationwide, fans and friends can be used interchangeably when referring to their army of followers.

By far one of the most underrated Hip-Hop acts to have emerged over the past few years, their accomplishments and the milestones they’ve reached are the stuff of often-referenced Hip-Hop legacies. But theirs remains a legacy that isn’t celebrated nearly as much as it should be… at least not by the “industry.” The fans, on the other hand, recognize just what sets Nappy Roots apart: consistency. In addition to their three independent releases – The Humdinger and Pursuit Of Nappyness, and Nappy Dot Org released in 2008, 2010, and 2011 respectively– Nappy Roots has provided their fans with new music every year since 2004, amassing a total of no less than 11 full-length albums and mixtapes.
