About The Mantras:

The Mantras, a five-piece rock band born of Greensboro, NC have been conquering crowds and melting minds all over the country progressively for over a decade. The band’s music can be described with all types of varying rock and roll terminology, but is absolutely best defined by each listener’s ear and, equally important, their experience.

Since the inception of The Mantras in the mid 2000’s, the band has been touring the country and building a catalog of 7 studio albums and over 100 original songs. Performing an entirely different set of music each night is an integral part of the band’s direction and mission as well as the ability to truly improvise in between orchestrated pieces. With eclectic influences of sounds from around the globe, The Mantras create a musical escapade during each performance, giving every ounce of emotion to their craft of expression and communication through music.

The Mantras are a family of rock; their closely-knit bonds can truly be felt by the crowd while the band performs. This is a critical feature of their community. One can easily tell that the musical pockets created by radical guitar riffs, gut checked bass lines, screeching synthesizers, a complete projection light show and two symbiotic drummers are no accident. The musical conversation on stage is simply beautiful to watch. The feeling is not exclusive just to the members on stage, however. The Mantras’ loyal fan base can testify to the reciprocation of love between performer and attendee and in a scene where it is sometimes difficult to stabilize a fan base and a consistent identity, The Mantras do just that. It has all of the ebbs and flows, peaks and valleys and patterns of constriction and release that can hook someone for life. Each show is a story. Each story is unique.

In addition to the collaborative element between band and fans, The Mantras have shared the stage with some of the foremost titans of jam. Their most recent studio release, entitled Jam Bands Ruined My Life was recorded at Umphrey’s McGee, axe man Jake Cinninger’s home studio, where Jake is featured on two tracks. Shortly after recording, The Mantras opened for and shared the stage with Umphrey’s McGee members while performing the thumping single entitled, “Kinetic Bump.” In addition, The Mantras have collaborated with members of The String Cheese Incident, Tea Leaf Green, and Perpetual Groove among many others.

About The Snozzberries:

The Snozzberries debut album “This Is Now” was recorded at Grammy-winning Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville, NC. Described by The Jamwich as “a very ambitious album full of genre-bending twists and turns [that] shows an unbelievable amount of maturity,” the record was produced by Josh Blake, mastered by John Keane (REM, Widespread Panic), and features artwork by Josh Levy.

About Chilltonic:

Chilltonic slid into the Asheville, NC music scene in the pandemic summer of 2020 on the back of a 1986 Dodge 350 pickup truck they converted to a mobile stage. They called it the Bandwagon. Since people couldn’t come hear the band play at any venues, which were all closed, the wildly popular Bandwagon was their way of bringing music directly to the people. They drove through Asheville and stopped to delight groups of surprised passerby a few songs at a time, all over town.

Since then, they have performed for larger crowds at Asheville’s most significant venues, including Salvage Station, The Orange Peel, and the Grey Eagle, in addition to headlining the Boogie Charm Festival in September. Chilltonic is preparing to record their first studio album.

The genre-fluid trio is hard to classify. They dole out groove-centric rhythms that melt the soul and are easy on the ears. An eclectic sound influenced by pop, rock, hip hop, funk, and reggae, the engaging songwriting speaks to the human condition, and the hooks stick in the head for days on end.

Chilltonic’s lyrics are bound to make listeners smile, while the rhythm captures everyone in the vibe. Simple yet sophisticated, the compositions take dynamic turns through tempo shifts, bridging genres and elevating the vibe several notches before returning to syncopated groove.

Rich in melody, concise yet dynamic, Chilltonic’s sound is like a delicious, healthy meal that is savory from the first bite, sweet but never sour, with a dash of cayenne pepper just when you least expect it. This music leaves you full and satisfied. Still, you will ask – can I get a second helping?
