The Tan and Sober Gentlemen
The Tan and Sober Gentlemen
Hailing from Snow Camp, North Carolina, the Tan and Sober Gentlemen pioneer a sound they call "Celtic punk-grass." Raw and unfiltered, this style is a blend of hard-driving, danceable roots music from both sides of the pond, delivered with a punk edge and whisky-fuelled abandon. They are particularly noted for their rip-roaring live show, featuring all sorts of on-stage shenanigans, audience engagement, and above all tremendous energy. As far as folk music goes, the Tan and Sober Gentlemen are the best drinking and dancing band you''ll find.

The Tan and Sober Gentlemen draws upon the roots of traditional Irish ballads, reels, and jigs as well as Americana roots music. Together, the combination creates a lively and fun performance guaranteed to keep your hands clapping and feet moving! When performing as a full five-piece band, reviews have stated that their music is like that of the Irish rock bands The Pogues, The Young Dubliners, and Scythian.
Tinderbox Circus Sideshow
Tinderbox Circus Sideshow
​An all-american classic circus sideshow, combining timeless acts of shock and amazement with a punk rock presentation, and a dirty south attitude. The result is a uniquely modern experience; unlike anything else in today's entertainment industry!

Tinderbox Circus Sideshow is one of the last remaining “ten-in-ones” in the country. Bringing you the best of both classic 20th century and modern 21st century sideshow, Captain Darron von Awesome (The Existential Extraordinaire & Pain-Proof Man) and Trashique (The Burlesque Anomaly & Mistress of Lift) have created the most mind-blowingly devilish backwoods troupe from the ground up.
