Founded and fronted by singer-guitarist Sean Walsh, The National Reserve mine an archetypal musical seam, marrying gutbucket R&B, Laurel Canyon lyricism, New Orleans funk workouts, late night soul, and boozy rock ‘n’ roll to create their own timeless brand of American music. Songs like “Found Me A Woman” and the indelible title track reveal a gifted new tunesmith while masterfully reminding one and all of the simple beauty of a great American bar band – two guitars, organ, bass and drums rocking out in the corner, singing their songs to soundtrack the night. The National Reserve is now planning to bring all the fun and fire of their fervent Friday night sets to the rest of the world, eager to pack as many folks into their late-night scene as possible.

Jul 28 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Charlotte’s The New Familiars have grown into an Americana Rock fixture in the southeast playing their own style of “American Rock & Roll” for years now. Drawing from the vast influences, they’ve shaped a sound that combines the nitty-gritty roots music of the Appalachia with the guitar-drenched-drum-driven anthems of Rock & Roll. Through collective songwriting, howling harmonies, & multi-instrumental talent, their show can take you from a back porch hoe-down to a full on rock show at the change of an instrument.

Making the road their home, their high energy shows have gained them notoriety not only in the press, but also among their peers. The band has been paired with legendary artists like Levon Helm, Del McCoury, and Gregg Allman; as well as new school greats like The Infamous Stringdusters, Langhorne Slim, and Scythian. Known to be a group of fun loving guys, their musicianship has wooed the likes of Ronnie McCoury (Travelin’ McCourys), Johnny Neel (Allman Brothers Band), Bob Margolin (Muddy Waters) and John Cowan (New Grass Revival/Doobie Brothers) to join them on stage for some epic nights of picking and grinning. In 2012, they were asked to perform at the Democratic National Convention and then later asked to open for Vice President Biden on his trip to Charlotte.

Ever the freedom seekers, the band has remained independent of labels and management as they’ve navigated their way through the festival, theatre, and club scene nationwide. They’ve played some of the best music festivals in the country.
