The Bad Raccoons:
A bunch of wild and crazy backyard bandits. Bringing in international, jazz, and brand new flavors into the mix, these young folks are making their own style of music. Fiddle, Guitar/Banjo, and Bass, along with those sweet vocal harmonies keeps the party jumping. Old Time with a twist, Hillbilly Jazz, you could say. You will probably hear a song your grandmother would sing right after a latin be bop banjo piece. Enjoy!
Eversole & The Flame:
Acoustic duet of the Appalachian Order. A medley of guitar, banjo n' fiddle with harmonies for the hills. These two youngsters' love for bluegrass and gospel tradition make for an intimate experience of music, stories, dance, and laughter. This ensemble is notorious for making memories and souls come to life.
Benjamin Jensen Jazz:
A Jazz group made up of jazz source material. These guys are thoroughly trained by some of the best jazz musicians in the country. However, they take that learning and interpret it with a freshness and zeal that is infectious. Traditional jazz or more modern style? Cool relaxing jams or swing dance music? It doesn't matter, these guy do it all. They have that uncanny ability to please not only the die hard jazz aficionados, but also those guests that had previously thought they didn't even like jazz. More musicians can be added as necessary.

It all really depends on you. What type of event are you wanting to have, and what are your personal tastes? Any way you go, you are sure to have an exciting and unforgettable event.

Wedding Cocktail Hour
in Chapel Hill, NC
"Thanks to Eversole and the Flame for an awesome event! We hired them to play ceremony music and a cocktail hour for our outdoor wedding in Chapel Hill. We had special requests for ceremony music which they gladly accommodated, they looked great and professional, and they sounded amazing during the cocktail hour, really setting the tone for a fun Southern wedding! I'd highly recommend them."

"Not the fastest in responding to emails but they were VERY accomodating with learning special songs for my wedding and my family and friends absolutely LOVED them. Great duo for both my wedding and the cocktail hour. Dressed snazzy, looked and sounded great. Would definitely use them again. Thank-you Andrew!!!"
- Lian-Marie H.
in Concord, NC
"They were great, they tackled the difficult task of providing an instrumental version of two very specific Iron & Wine songs beautifully. They added the perfect southern touch to my wedding and would recommend them for any event where you would like a personal, acoustic touch."
- Bethany S.
in High Point, NC
"They made our night unique, fun, and as hassle free as possible. I would easily recommend them to anyone for any type of event. They had fun, we had fun, and it sounded great.... you can't beat it.
Thanks so much guys! I know my family/friends can be.... demanding (thats the word we'll use, anyway) and you handled them graciously."
- Jake S.
in Charlotte, NC
"Faye and Andrew were terrific. They came in, listened to my direction for all of 5 minutes, then did exactly what I needed, and raised it up a notch. They seemed to have a good time, and that translated into an audience that had an even better time. I would use their talents again any time it was appropriate. They were talented, professional, willing and very easy to work with. They are both nice people as well."
