Mikele Buck Band @ Salt

November 9, 2018 | 9:00 pm-2:00 am

The Voice 2018 contestant Mikele Buck was born in the Hills of West Virginia, where his family was steeped in the traditional music of the Appalachians. Playing drums in rock bands for most of his high school days, after graduation Mikele bought his first guitar. He started writing songs and playing local taverns, bars, and bonfire parties, testing his own songs out on friends and family. His original songs are a blend of all his musical influences, including Steve Earle, Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt and Red-Dirt artists like Randy Rodgers Band and Reckless Kelly. After returning from the Iraq war in 2005, Mikele went to Nashville to record his first CD and established his first band near Greenville NC. This band's popularity grew and soon they were opening up for major acts such as Jason Aldean and Joe Nichols. From NC night clubs and fairs, the Mikele Buck Band began drawing record crowds of their own. His latest iTunes release has been pouring through car speakers all over the east...

Mac & Juice Quartet @ Backstreet Pub

November 30, 2018 | 9:00 pm - December 1, 2018 | 12:00 am

For nearly two decades, Mac & Juice have continued to make tremendous evolutionary strides from their days as a dynamic acoustic duo. Now performing as a full band, their vast stylistic range is seamlessly translated into every original song. The sound is personally described as “Jammy-Soul-Rock & Roll”- Organically crafted Rock music that isn't afraid to jam out and improvise, but with a Bluesy touch of Soul sweetness to smooth out the edges.
