The West End String Band is an exciting combination of musicians dedicated to playing and performing traditional bluegrass music with modern appeal. Charlie McDaniel, guitar and vocals; Kathy McDaniel, bass and vocals; Jim Rollins, banjo and vocals; Matt Purinton, mandolin and vocals, and Brian Van Antwerp, fiddle and vocals. WESB plays locally and regionally for weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, oyster roasts, and at regional venues such as bars, restaurants, picking parlors, acoustic stages, and festivals in well known venues, private parties, weddings,or anywhere a solid, vibrant professional band is needed.
Band members:
Charlie McDaniel, guitar and vocals, moved to the upstate area about 20 years ago from Rutherford County, N.C. He was a member of the popular regional band, Hickory Flat, for over 20 years. Hickory Flat brought home a top 10 finish in the SPGMA bluegrass band world championship, followed by several busy years on the festival circuit. Charlie's soulful singing puts the blues in bluegrass.
As a percussionist in high school, Kathy won the Louis Armstrong Jazz Award for piano. Her great timing and true love for BG made the bass a great choice for her. She anchors the group now with her rock solid timing and harmony vocals. Jim Rollins, a Clemson graduate, hails from the DC area, and currently lives in Simpsonville, SC. His superb banjo pickin, and high lonesome vocals are steeped in traditional bluegrass.He has had the honor of being a Sunny Mountain Boy with Jimmy Martin, as well as playing tour dates with Dale Ann Bradley, The Blinky Moon Boys and many others.
Matt Purinton, of Six Mile, SC, adds his unique mandolin and deep rich baritone to the West End String Band sound. Matt previously played and toured extensively with Silver Dagger, Narrow Gauge Band, and the Ashley Caudill Band.

When my daughter, the bride, and I arrived at Cade's Cove Methodist Church for her historically-themed Appalachian wedding, we could hear this band playing the most beautiful soft bluegrass I have ever heard. They played a huge role in making this a magical day for us. Thank you West End String Band.

We loved this group! We hosted a community event and they fit right in. They were very flexible in doing what we needed. We were so busy setting up and getting things ready ourselves that it was nice that they just did what they needed to do. They seemed to take care of themselves. We were in an open field and their sound carried great. We loved their style and people seemed to really enjoy the music! Great job guys!!!
