Crackers and Snackmeat
Crackers & Snackmeat are seasoned veterans to the Charlotte music and comedy scene. Currently, they are the house band for the "Crazy Late show with Johnny Millwater". They have played with internationally touring comedian Doug Stanhope along with local and regional comedic talent such as Kerry White, Carlos Valencia, Joe Zimmerman, Tom Stover, Johnny Millwater, Jonas Garvin, and Allegra Barnett. They have carved out a solid niche with other comedy acts as well. It doesn't stop there as they have shared the stage with The LRC, Satta Tribe, Eyes of the Elders, One Big Love, Red Letter Blue, a little ugly, The Side, cul-de-sac, 20 Past 4, The Thought Criminals, Andy Wood, Case Federal & The Agents, Roots Essential, Matthew Paul Butler, The Lights Fluorescent, Wicked Jones, Tater Famine, Attila's Honey, SouthSide Punx, Dr. Cirkustein, Funky Geezer, Sherman Hellville, Rogue Planet, Run Engine, Spongecake & The Fluff Ramblers, and many others over the years.
Since their inception they have stretched the musical boundaries with pounding funk grooves, laid back blues, and hard hitting hooks. Fearless in exploring different genres, from jazz to rock to metal as they continue to grow as a musical team.
The original line-up as put together in January 2008 by the now defunct Habitual Ritual Sketch Comedy Troupe was guitarist Phil Black and bassist Jason French (formerly backups at The Perch Comedy Club), drummer Chris "SkeeZe" Slezak from a myspace bulletin, and singer/actor/improv comedian James Lee Walker II. Drummer Colin Ray (Case Federal & The Agents, Sherman Hellville) joined the band in May of 2013 to replace Chris "SkeeZe" Slezak who relocated to Austin, TX.
Crackers & Snackmeat released "Down The Road", their debut album with Milkjug Records in August 2009 and are currently working on their sophomore effort "That's What's Up!" due later this year.
For fans of Mariah, Twain and GAGA.
Bobby Jealousy is a young band of old souls determined to claim pop music for the underground. Since 2011 Bobby Jealousy has written and recorded three full-length albums, one of which helped a California couple to conceive. Current members include Sabrina Ellis of A Giant Dog, husband Seth Gibbs, drummer Adam Harlow and Brian Patterson on guitar. Talented UK performer Mark Stoney played an integral part in the band's early development. Bobby Jealousy is the sentiment of the odd man out, the collective shout of the socially anxious, the waning hope of the everyman, and the pagan deity of the hyper-romantic. Bobby Jealousy works hard to change the lives of its listeners, one big, loud, dirty pop song at a time.
Run Engine comes together as a dynamic rock 'n' roll unit that generates earthy, genuine melodies and delivers a high-energy stage performance.
With many years of collected experience, Run Engine comes together as a dynamic rock 'n' roll unit that generates earthy, genuine melodies and delivers a high-energy stage performance. The new Charlotte, NC band is fueled by the sleek-yet-comfortable songwriting of Andy Wood and boasts a powerful "Engine" that churns out their melodic efforts with hints of modern rock, americana, punk, and country. With a deep catalog of versatile songs that evoke dynamic styles ranging anywhere from Johnny Cash to the Foo Fighters, Run Engine plants itself firmly among the top of the "must see/must hear" list in the Charlotte area. The band features Andy Wood (guitar, lead vocals), Mike Scarlata (bass, vocals), Davey Kolk (guitar, keys, vocals), John Ehlers (drums).
Fire Marshall BIll
We have been around fer sometime now and are looking to shake up charlottes music scene look out cause we got somthing to show ya!!!
Brett: Been PLaying Drums for 14 years also play for All Thumbs & Two Left Feet
Joey: I have been playing guitar since i was 14 so 12 years now. my early influences were nirvana and alice in chains. I took about four months of guitar classes mostly centered around the blues, I believe it shows up a bit in my playing style, but I am not afraid to throw some heavier and chunky metal, sprinkle in a bit of blues and jazz stuff and there you go...you now have recipe for the guitfiddle.
