Appalachian Renegades Live at Triskelion
Aug 17 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Triskelion Brewing Company

Formed in 2017 in the hollers of the WNC mountains just outside of Asheville, NC, Appalachian Renegades blends an old school gritty blues rock with big guitar riffs invoking the spirit of some of our favorite rockers from Stevie Ray Vaughn and Warren Haynes to Dan Auerbach and Jack White.

Fueled by Graeme Adams’s big vocal efforts and saxophone interludes, Stephen Snider’s soaring guitar solos, and supported by the sonic back bone of seasoned professional drummer Blu Ramakis and the creative bass lines of Tink Lawing, the band packs a punch right from the get go and keeps delivering the heat – dropping big rock song after big rock song.

The band is focusing on building a strong repertoire of originals while mixing in fan favorites cover songs sure to keep you locked in from beginning to end.

The Band’s Visit
Aug 17 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm
Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts

“Breaking news for Broadway: IT IS TIME TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN! One of the most ravishing musicals you will ever be seduced by. It is called ‘THE BAND’S VISIT.’” -The New York Times, Critics’ Pick

The critically acclaimed new musical, THE BAND’S VISIT, celebrates the deeply human ways music, longing and laughter can connect us all. After a mix-up at the border, an Egyptian Police Band is sent to a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, these unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways.

Based on the multi-award winning film, THE BAND’S VISIT is brought to the stage by three-time Tony® nominee DAVID YAZBEK (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Full Monty), Drama Desk nominee ITAMAR MOSES (Nobody Loves You, Fortress of Solitude) and acclaimed director DAVID CROMER (Our Town, The House of Blue Leaves).
