Ol’ Hoopty:

From the band’s website: “We call it Organ-ic Rock ‘n Soul, but it’s really just a big, spicy gumbo of all the things we all grew up listening to. We like to take our time and keep that groove cooking, inspired as we are by people like Jimmy Smith, Booker T. and the MG’s and the Muscle Shoals crew.”

Tuesday, August 10 at 6 p.m.

The Groovemont Players:

This collection of Swannanoa Valley players represents a “who’s who” of regional talent, coordinated by Steve Moseley and performing a mix of rock, soul, blues and beyond.
