The Black Lillies

Founded by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Cruz Contreras (Robinella and the CCstringband), the group honors the traditions of their Appalachian heritage while blazing new trails in the roots rock genre. Strains of old time, bluegrass, country, rock and jazz are heard throughout their music, creating a sound that is uniquely their own.

The Buchanan Boys


Looking for a countrified rock and roll good time with a twist? Then look no further than The Buchanan Boys! Hailing from the Great Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina, the five-piece band owes its sound to the blend of each member’s eclectic tastes in music. With a style similar to that of current mega stars like Jason Aldean and Zac Brown Band, the band effortlessly mixes different genres into a tasty recipe sure to leave the listener satisfied and craving more!
