The 8:59’s:

The 8:59’s, a North Carolina based band formed in 2014, blend a range of influences to create a unique yet familiar sound. Based around the songwriting, harmonies, and guitars of Christian Fisher and Neville Handel, the band is rounded out by bassist Mike Beck and drummer Brad Goolsby. Echoes of Nashville, Athens, and Chapel Hill can be heard in the band’s songs, which draw 
from and cover genres from Americana and Alt-Country to Indie Rock.

The 8:59’s have performed at a number of Triangle area venues including participating in the Cat’s Cradle 50th Anniversary celebration. The band’s songs have been featured on multiple local radio stations. In July 2022, The 8:59’s released their second full length album: Return Song. The album is available on all streaming platforms.

Jimmy Ray Swagger and The Fussy Eaters:

Recently transplanted to the Triangle area from their home in Cumby, TX, country music legend Jimmie Ray Swagger and his band The Fussy Eaters have been taking the East Coast country music establishment by storm. Their gritty songs of love, lust, addiction, malfeasance, and pain aim right for the heart and/or groin. After many long months of planning the move to NC, Jimmie’s probation judge finally approved and they haven’t looked back since!
