Asheville Wing War II Scheduled for March 10

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

ASHEVILLE NC – Lush Life Productions and G Social Media are partnering together once again for an event in which local bars or restaurants in Asheville battle it out for the title  of “Asheville’s Best Buffalo Wings”. With a ticket that includes unlimited beer, wings (while supplies last) and great local music, this event has sold out in the past and is sure to sell out again.

The competition will heat up at Asheville Music Hall at 4pm on March 10. The wings will be judged by a panel of celebrity judges in two categories: specialty and traditional buffalo style. There will also be a people’s choice award in which attendees have the opportunity to vote for their favorite.


All of the beer will be provided by Sierra Nevada and Pisgah Brewing and will be included in the ticket price.

About the Band

Southbound Turnaround has been booked to play this event. Touted as the “the smoothest low down grit to hit your ears,” this band will bringing their high energy show of classic rockabilly to the stage to help dance off those wings and brews.

Since its release the band has shared stages with Dale Watson, Wayne Hancok, JP Harris, Junior Brown, and Unknown Hinson among others.
