GIle McConkey:

Giles McConkey is a funk and alternative rock jam band from Blacksburg, VA. After meeting freshman year of college in 2012, living in the same dorm, they quickly discovered their musical interests coincided and they began casually playing together. Over the two years that followed, the group got serious and began gigging at the local bars in Blacksburg. Stunning their fan base with funky jams and uplifting melodies, the band quickly gathered a local following.

During the summer of 2015, Giles McConkey recorded and released their first EP titled “The Inner Ear Sessions” which featured 5 originally written tracks. The band also played at the Untitled Music Festival in New Castle, VA that summer. That fall, the band expanded their range to Richmond, VA when it played a set at The National. For the future, the band hopes to expand their influence to other cities throughout the east coast, record their first full-length album and expand their sound and song repertoire.

 
 
 
 
The Orange Constant:
 
 
The Orange Constant formed in 2012 in Statesboro, Ga. and has since made a name for itself across the American southeast. Now residing in Athens, Ga., the group continues to grow a loyal fan-base that craves its eclectic and vintage rock sound. TOC's debut album, Time to Go (June 2015), was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer John Keane (R.E.M., Widespread Panic) and garnered national praise from Relix Magazine which cited the work as a "confident and polished debut album...laden with connective riffs and melodious charm." The band shares bills with nationally and internationally touring acts including Perpetual Groove, TAUK, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, and CBDB and won the 2016 Flagpole Athens Music Award for best "Jam/ Funk" band. Its second LP, Point of Reference (March 2017), was produced by Drew Vandenberg (of Montreal, Kishi Bashi, Futurebirds) and demonstrates an urge to break genre restrictions and capture a sound of its own. The Orange Constant draws influence from many different styles and fans are often drawn to their ability to meld progressive composition and improvisation with a pop-like sensibility. The band is: Andrew Brantley (guitar, vocals), Nickalous Benson (guitar, vocals), Tyler Walker (bass, vocals), Chris Freiberg (keyboards), Sam Groveman (drums).
