The 1st Annual Beech Mountain Throwback Music Weekend

The Beech Mountain Brewing Company Taproom and Grill will be the venue for the Beech Mountain Throwback Music Weekend, August 3rd, 4th and 5th. The family-friendly event takes place over three days, with a suggested donation of $5 per performance as a fundraiser for the Beech Mountain Chamber of Commerce. The Throwback Music Weekend will feature music from the 60’s and 70’s, with some 80’s thrown in for good measure.

Spoon Bread, August 3rd

Spoon Bread, a Jerry Garcia/Grateful Dead tribute band, will kick things off on Friday August 3rd. Spoon Bread is a Boone NC based group consisting of a core trio of Jonathan Priest on drums, Toma Fuller on Keys and Guitar, and Brandon Holder on Bass. Originally dedicating their efforts to the vast catalog of originals and uniquely tasteful covers performed by the Jerry Garcia Band, they continue to expand their repertoire into similar soulful sounds of days past. Not afraid to explore where a tune can go, Spoon Bread seeks to bring something interesting musically all while maintaining a tight groove. Weaving through blues, soul, funk, and rock and roll they seek to blend the genres into a tapestry of sonic goodness that embraces all styles.

On Saturday, August 4th, Clockworx will take the stage for some 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s rock and roll covers. This band features a number of experienced musicians. Lead guitarist Max Riley has shared the stage with Doc Holliday and Nantucket, and now makes his home permanently on Beech Mountain. Keyboardist Phil Giallombardo is a founding member of the James Gang and has played with REO Speedwagon, Kansas and many others.

Bill Wrenn, drummer, is a retired police officer who formerly traveled across the United States performing with several rock bands. Billy Darr, bassist, has performed with a number of popular rock and country bands.

Sunday the 5th will continue the nostalgia at 1:00 pm with a performance by the GB’s, a Winston-Salem-based band featuring Beatles covers and other British Invasion-American Pop hits from the 60’s and 70’s. Lead Guitarist Chuck Dale Smith has shared the stage with The Byrds, Billy J. Kramer, Carl Perkins, The Box Tops, Sam & Dave, The Surfaris and countless others. Henry Heidtmann (bass, vocals)has worked on several projects with former Shakes/Think Jet guitarist Steve Dixon (Reversing Hour) then went on to form Circle of Blue with former Dayroom Monitors guitarist Dave Dixon, Steve Catron and Chris Phillips of Squirrel Nut Zippers fame. Henry has had the privilege to share the stage with such acts as Levon Helm, Paul Revere and The Raiders, Judy Collins, Sam Moss and renowned jazz violinist Randy Sabien. Mike Chamis (guitar, vocals)got his start when he formed The Vanguard, a rock quartet that played faithful covers by The Beatles, Stones, Who, Kinks, and Yardbirds along with their original tunes. The Vanguard opened shows for John Entwistle, Mick Taylor, Gregg Allman, Blue Oyster Cult, Rare Earth, Foghat, and Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Matt D'Amico (Drums)has played in combos all over the east coast- most notably in the fertile Maryland music belt. He joined the GB's to continue his love of great rock n' roll. Matt also slaps the cans with the Twang Doctors, a local Americana/acoustic quartet as he lays the rhythm down with GB's bassist Henry Heidtmann...keepin it in the family!
