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.

We booked West End String Band for our ceremony and cocktail hour and they were the BEST! The ceremony was beautiful and they learned an instrumental we requested for our processional. They played so many of the songs we requested and they sounded amazing. They were so easy to work with during the planning process and did not disappoint. They made it everything we wanted and more for our mountain wedding in Asheville and even helped us with a last minute microphone for the ceremony. If you want a tried and true bluegrass band that will also play the hits everyone loves, this is your band. I cannot rave about them enough. You won't be disappointed.

Where do I begin!? West End String Band was PHENOMENAL at our elopement celebration. Every guest was impressed by the amount of talent in front of them! They learned a song for us and it meant a lot to my husband and his fraternity brothers. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND hiring West End String Band for any event! They were so nice and definitely brought life to the party. I wouldn't hire any other band! Thanks WESB!
