The Firewater Tent Revival, The Company Stores, Melody Trucks Band, Beau & The Burners, West King String Band
It will be a great night for our Jacksonville Family as we welcome
The Company Stores, a folk fusion band from Charleston, WV, that smoothly blends elements of may genres of southern music. They pull inspiration from styles such as Delta blues, Appalachian folk, gospel, jazz, and other Americana music, then layer in their own modern styles and rhythms. Vocalist Casey Litz's sultry and soulful voice captivates the audience, while the band lays down bluesy grooves between dynamic builds.
The name "The Company Stores" is a throwback to the old coal mines of West Virginia. It refers to the system set up by coal companies during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, where they paid the miners in "script" or "coal money" that was only good at the "company store." This form of indentured servitude kept miners and their families in bondage to the coal companies, and was a classic case of the rich and powerful exploiting the poor. This name not only shows the bands heritage, but also the gritty feel of their music and the meaning behind many of their songs about the struggles of the common man.

w/ Special Guest Melody Trucks Band after touring with Butch Trucks and the Freight Train, Melody Trucks immersed herself in the increasingly rich and diverse music scene in Jacksonville, Florida. The Melody Trucks Band came together in early 2017 as she encountered each member within this extended musical family. Their individual styles and influences run the entire span of every music genre: rock, blues, jazz, funk, classical, country, thrash metal, and even world music. This has culminated in fresh and unique interpretations of iconic songs from the genre of Melody's extended family. The Band is excited to have Melody's brother Vaylor along for this special show. Make sure you're there.
