ARMCHAIR BOOGIE

Armchair Boogie has been ramblin’ since 2015 when Augie Dougherty (banjo, vocals) and Ben Majeska (guitar, vocals) collided in a fiery crash of modern bluegrass glory. With the rhythmic addition of Eli Frieders (bass) and Denzel Connor (drums), the Boogie Boys took their current funky form.

The band fuses traditional bluegrass instrumentation with well-structured lyrics and the modern jam-band groove that keeps their fans moving throughout every show. The Boogie Boys have shared the stage with many contemporaries, such as Yonder Mountain String Band, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Infamous Stringdusters, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, The Dead South, Kitchen Dwellers, Pert Near Sandstone, and have jammed with many more.
 
Catch a show anywhere around the country…even your grumpiest Uncle will jump out of his armchair and boogie down to these guys.

FIRESIDE COLLECTIVE

A quintet who cheerfully disregard every kind of one-dimensional label that might be attached to their music, Fireside Collective has been on a roll since emerging seven years ago from the fertile roots music scene of Asheville, North Carolina. In quick order, the progressive bluegrass group released its debut album, won the 2016 Band Contest at MerleFest, earned an International Bluegrass Music Association Momentum Band of the Year nomination and embarked on an ambitious touring schedule that’s earned an enthusiastic reception from traditional bluegrass to wide-ranging, eclectic music festival audiences alike.
 
​Blending the characteristic interplay of bluegrass instrumentation and harmonies with strong original material and exuberant energy, Fireside Collective has drawn on folk, blues, funk and a wide variety of bluegrass sounds to create a distinctive body of work that’s all their own.
