Brian Hill of Regatta 69
Brian Hill’s unmistakable voice, memorable songs and lyrical bass stylings have been the sonic backbone of his internationally touring rock-reggae band Regatta 69. For more than two decades he’s been touring extensively throughout the US and Europe, delivering smooth performances of his uplifting songs to audiences in some 42 States and 17 countries.  His concerts feature some classic ska and reggae remakes, but mostly his original songs, both new and rarities from the vault of Regatta 69’s 20+ year recording history. |

Kendra Warren
Kendra Warren is a singer-songwriter from the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. She sings endearing songs of love, loss, family and her roots reaching five generations deep into Asheville’s Spivey Mountain. Kendra often collaborates with other gifted artists around North Carolina to keep things fresh. She dabbles in a wide range of styles ranging from vocalizing features on dance and hip-hop albums to acoustic mountain jams. |

Bob Funck
Bob Funck delivers a rhythmic, percussive, americana-influenced acoustic rock like a hard-luck angel casting into the swamp of the wayward, penetrating the soul with irresistible hooks, and reeling in with deft lyricism and the brute force of an unabashedly visceral release of emotion. Bob currently lives in Durham, NC, performs regularly as a solo artist, and is steadily establishing himself as a significant presence in the North Carolina music scene. He is often the host of the NC Songsmiths series and tours assembling talented songwriters from throughout the state to perform together.
