GIle McConkey:

"Giles McConkey is a rock band that focuses on creating original music and weaving that with thoughtful tributes to iconic bands of the past. The band is constantly experimenting with their sound and in result, every show becomes different and constantly evolving. Giles McConkey's goal, as a band, is to try to bridge the gap between performing tight compositions and throwing caution to the wind and playing true improvisational music. This is not a band to miss with every show producing different results that all remain uniquely Giles.

 

Giles McConkey found their start in the fall of 2013 in Blacksburg, Virginia. With years of extensive gigging around Virginia and surrounding states, Giles has become known for seamlessly weaving experimental and uplifting jams with accessible and funky originals. Fans of the band who attend live shows have experienced everything from progressive and technical hard rock resolving into uplifting and peaking jams, to tight and focused bluegrass tributes, to loose and funky jams and everything in between. Due to this diversity of sound, the band attracts fans of many genres of music that keep returning to experience the band and their constantly evolving sound."

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).
