ON OCTOBER 11: The Fritz

This soul-driven dance rock band from Asheville, NC is captivating audiences across the state.  The group’s aggressive approach to funk, soul, and rock creates a sound that is uniquely their own. Their high-energy, dance-able songs provide a platform for each member to shine. Their first album release, Boostrap, launched them into an almost constant touring schedule.  They appeared at Hulaween, Wakarusa, and Catskill Chill which built their reputation of a band you don’t want to miss.

Join us for their October performance at Lake Raleigh!
