THE JOHN KADLECIK BAND

With 12 years spent as the Dark Star Orchestra's lead guitarist, great gigs supporting Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Furthur, and spots here and there with Melvin Seals, Greg Anton, & others, John's definitely got the chops. His band (Waynard Scheller on keys, Klyph Black on bass, and Nathan Graham on drums) rolls through the area for shows in Charlotte on Thursday and Asheville on Friday. We're opening WNCW's Wednesday night Jar of Jam a bit early this week!

Live Tuesday, February 9th at 1pm: THE JAMES HUNTER SIX

Feb 5, 2016

When English soul singer/songwriter James Hunter visited WNCW a couple years ago as Guest DJ, he was particularly excited about being in NC because he had just made a pilgrimage to the home of one of his all-time favorite acts, The "5" Royales. With his return this week, for shows in Asheville Tuesday and Charlotte Wednesday, the Grammy-nominated great has a hot new release on the label he seemed destined to be on, Daptone Records.

Live Friday, January 29th at 1pm: DYLAN LEBLANC

Jan 21, 2016

This Muscle Shoals-born singer/songwriter was seemingly born with the talent of blending blues, soul, and country/Americana sounds seamlessly together, and his new, third release, Cautionary Tale, is his strongest yet. He's in our area for shows in Knoxville Wednesday and Asheville Thursday. We're pleased to welcome him back for another live session.

Live Thursday January 28th at 1pm: THE HOT SARDINES

Jan 21, 2016

Check out this tight NYC 8-piece-band (does that count their tap dancer?) that brings back the fun hot jazz of the Prohibition, Great Depression, and WWII eras. To quote Raleigh-Durham's IndyWeek, “Trad jazz… with an edge, as if the cops could bust in waving billy clubs." They play Morganton Thursday, Greenville Friday, and Asheville (sold out) Saturday.

Live Thursday, January 21st at 1pm: PHIL COOK

Jan 19, 2016

To take an appropriate line from his website, Phil Cook is a conduit of American music. In addition to his work with Megafaun, he's soaked up a variety of influences -- Delta, Bayou, Appalachian -- and has settled in well to his NC home since moving here in 2005.
