PLEASE NOTE: OUR SEPTEMBER 13, 2018 LIVE@LAKE RALEIGH IS CANCELED DUE TO HURRICANE FLORENCE. Sidecar Social Club has been rescheduled for May 9, 2019.

ON SEPTEMBER 13: Sidecar Social Club
The native Raleigh group, Sidecar Social Club, is spicing up music scenes in the triangle with their speakeasy jazz and cabaret inspired tunes. Soaring through numerous genres effortlessly, their energetic sets take you to colorful and surprising places. You may have heard them at Artsplosure, the South Carolina Jazz Festival, Apex Jazz Festival, North Carolina State Fair, and the North Carolina Museum of Art | NCMA, among many others.

Opening band: Autumn Nicholas
Autumn is a vocalist, guitarist, and award-winning songwriter whose sound is an eclectic mix of genres, from acoustic pop to soulful funk. Autumn has won the North and South Carolina Singer/Songwriter Awards, been a featured artist in writers-rounds along the East Coast and opened for performers such as The Temptations, Ed McCain and Collective Soul.


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.
