The Heritage is a funk/roots band forged by three musicians living in Winston-Salem, NC in the summer of 2011. Though initially formed by; Andrew Lazare, Cass Copsey, and Marshall Bjorling, the band has had multiple incarnations, but one unifying mentality: a passion for live music and a desire to replicate what great artists have done for them, for the listener.
In their brief history, The Heritage has certainly made their fair share of noise in the South. They have played their unique spin on funk and rock from Winston-Salem to Raleigh, Boone, Savannah, Atlanta, Columbia, and many great venues and festivals in between with bands like Toubab Krewe, Lettuce, Slightly Stoopid, Yonder Mountain String Band, some of their good friends like Big Daddy Love, BIG Something, The Broadcast, and many many more. The Heritage sound is a unique blend of the soul of classic funk, roots, and rock n' roll with a modern groove based, high energy execution, while the live experience is an intimate and exciting exchange of energy between both them and the audience.
The Heritage is currently working on their first full-length record at the esteemed Fideletorium Recording Studio and focusing on the thriving NC music festival scene and the green pastures of the entire beautiful South-East.
