Travis Allison Band
Travis has been performing full time since graduating with a B.A. in Music from the University of Richmond. He has recorded five original albums and has toured extensively throughout the US. Having settled in Charleston, SC he fronts his band on vocals, guitar and piano averaging forty private events per year in addition to original and acoustic shows where he enjoys performing crowd favorites and deep cuts alike.
His most recent album “Migrant Heart” features Edwin McCain on vocals and Sadler Vaden (Jason Isbell band) on guitar. His songs have been featured on MTV’s Real World, Road Rules, Making the Video, Nickelodeon and BET among others. He recently opened for Bruce Hornsby.
Don Merkle & The Blacksmiths
“A darkly honest and wry singer/songwriter out of Charleston, South Carolina, Donald Merckle's tunes have one foot in the foot-stompin' Celtic punk of The Pogues and Dropkick Murphy’s and another firmly planted in the alt-country tradition popularized by Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, and the Drive-by Truckers, capable of both rock and roll growl and smoky barroom introspection. In the past, he's led the popular Appalachian/Irish-indebted
outfit Loch Ness Johnny as well as co-fronted the rambunctious alt-country leaning American Gun, and between the two bands he's served as an opening act for Drivin' N Cryin', Lucero, Shooter Jennings, The Avett Brothers, and Cracker. His latest backing band, The Blacksmiths, deftly mixes the disparate approaches of his previous acts into a sound and feel that captures the ineffable blend of roots music and rock and roll at the heart of Merckle's songs”
