October 3 | Pierce Alexander
Pierce Alexander is originally from Tallahassee, Florida but he quickly made the move to Charleston, SC. Pierce is a guitarist along with a song writer and is usually found walking the streets of downtown Charleston with a guitar on his back or tucked away in a coffee shop writing lyrics. His music would be described as alternative rock with a modern edge as he incorporates elements of jazz, rock and electronic music into all of his work.
October 10 | The Louie D Project
The Louie D Project is Charleston’s premier funk and party band!! The members include Louis Dixon, Jesse Anderson, Paul Walls, and Collin Madden. They have been nominated for numerous awards by Charleston City Paper such as “BEST JAZZ BAND”, “BEST FUNK BAND”, “BEST HOUSE/COVER BAND” and many more! Their influences behind their music would be bands such as Pink Floyd, Earth Wind and Fire and artists such as Prince.
October 17 | Dave Arcari Don Merckle & The Blacksmiths PLUS a special 5pm performance by the Cario Chamber Orchestra
Dave Arcari is a slide guitarist and songwriter whose alt. blues sounds owe as much to trash country, punk and rockabilly as they do pre-war Delta blues. They have been showcased via ten internationally-acclaimed solo CD releases. A series of shows with folks including Steve Earle, Alabama 3, Seasick Steve, Toby Keith and Jon Spencer along with his relentless UK and European tour schedule have established Arcari as a formidable international solo performer who is fast building a media reputation as a “hell-raising National guitar madman”.
Done Merckle is a darkly honest and wry singer/songwriter out of Charleston, SC. Merckle’s tunes have one foot in Celtic punk and the other firmly planted in the alt country tradition. His backing band, The Blacksmiths, create a sound and feel that deftly captures the ineffable blend of roots music and rock and roll.
October 24 | Transonic Czars
Transonic Czars is an original indie-rock band based out of Charleston, SC! Their genres include rock, alternative and sinister disco. Their members include John Cox, Brent Poulson, Matt Goodrich, Shank Wilson, Chad Price, and Shamus Gilles. Some of their influencers behind their music would be Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and Radiohead.
