The band Porch 40 will bring its funky rock style of music to Concerts on the Creek this Friday, Aug. 15, at the Bridge Park in Sylva, N.C., from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Edgy, fresh, and outgoing, Porch 40’s music is hard to ignore.
Blending and bending genre after genre, their songs redefine the roots of modern music. They incorporate elements from the best of the old, such as Motown, Jazz, and Funk; while embellishing it with the best of the new; rock, progressive, indie, metal, hip hop, and electronic.
With a unique blend of musicianship and instrumentation, Porch 40 enters the music scene with an unprecedented sound, and peerless style.
Porch 40 was formed in Cullowhee, N.C., by Drew Duncan (vocals, guitar) and Mitchell Metz (violin), who bonded together through music while studying abroad in Wales. Upon returning to the states, they had but one goal: start a band. First to come was Spencer Bradley, a drummer. Next to join forces was the prolific saxophonist Scott Burr. Finally, Carter Mcdevitt came on bass. The band began practicing together on March 20, 2012, where they wasted no time in creating new, original songs that would become the framework of their own all-encompassing sound. Porch 40 knows no boundaries.
Concerts on the Creek are held every Friday night from Memorial Day through Labor Day from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., at Sylva’s Bridge Park. The concerts are free with a donation encouraged. Those attending should bring a chair or blanket.
