Doors Open: 8:00 - Show Starts: 9:00
Hailing from Kentucky with a sound as unique and smooth as the state's beloved bourbon, C2 & The Brothers Reed's authenticity shines - in their music, and on stage.
Forming in 2013, the brothers hit the road to spread their sound and haven't looked back. After the independent release of their first EP Hot Mess, along with an extensive tour schedule, they took to the studio less than a year later to cut their newest record Weigh Station Tour.
Split into sides, 'Exit A' and 'Exit B', Weigh Station Tour explores gritty rock and roll while referencing 60's and 70's era soul music, embracing a style that is nearly forgotten in the surge of modern sounds and technology.
Writing for their newest release began in 2017, self producing the first single and short film, No Pressure, before working with Grammy award winning producers Al Sutton and Marlon Young (Greta Van Fleet, Bob Seger, Kid Rock) at Rustbelt Studios in Detroit. The album is slated for a late 2019 release.

SWIM IN THE WILD
Swim in the Wild is The Adventure Alternative Band of the Carolina’s. A New Rock-Folk-Americana fusion with so much energy it that needed an identity, Swim in the Wild is the sound track to adventure. SITW Music is an outdoor drama between nature vs. structure, indulging the unknown, and saying yes to life by diving in.
Following the debut and release of their Self Titled 2013 EP, Swim in the Wild began making their splash in the Southeastern Music Scene. What started as a band of brothers and childhood friends became a musical movement across the Carolina’s so much that Swim in the Wild fans took on their own identity as “The Swim Team.”
The release of their 2016 LP, “One if by Land,” brought on new levels of success along with new touring members of the band. Having gained some National Attention from the album lead to opportunities to perform at Sundance Film Festival, playing with many National acts like New Politics and Colony House, to bigger venues like Fillmore & House of Blues, local sold out shows, working with the Carolina Panthers, and receiving honors as the Regional Winner and a National Finalist for Hard Rock Rising. SITW also made a noticeable impact online and the airwaves with over 200,000 Spotify streams alone. “Where as the EP felt more like a collection of songs we had written as individuals at different times in our lives, the identity of Swim in the Wild truly surfaced in the studio writing One if by Land, which really tapped into who we were as a band and what we’ve been through together,” vocalist Michael Hall explains.
Now, following the successful release of their LP and recent endorsement from Port City Amps, SITW is currently recording at Echo Mountain Studios between short tours, preparing the release of select singles and their 2nd LP, “Two if by Sea,” in 2018. The addition of their newest talented members in the studio this time around promises to take the next album and their listeners to the deeper depths of Swim in the Wild music.

Their sound is reminiscent of some of the iconic classic rock icons they grew up listening to while staying modern and relevant to younger audiences.
