October 27th Concert Details:
- Nick Clyburn Band
Nick Clyburn Band, led by vocalist Nick Clyburn along with members Mike Atwater (lead guitar), Niles Lewis (guitar) and Collin Danker (drums), is a self-proclaimed country rock, southern soul band hailing from Lexington, SC. Clyburn’s writing began to mature after a four-year stint in the Marines, during which he got married and had three children. Clyburn’s fans gravitate to the down-to-earth perspective of their music, which is the perfect soundtrack for the next generation of country music fans.
Hailing from Columbia, SC, Villanova distills elements of funky pop and rock into a hypnotic hybrid. VillaNova prides itself on making music with solid grooves and soulful, dynamic lyrics provided by lead vocalist/guitarist/song writer BC VillaNova, bass lines by Bobby Dredd, drums and backing vocals by Young Sean, harmony vocals and rhythm guitar by Brandon Hooker, and keyboards by DJ Able One. Their infectious sound has earned them thousands of fans nationwide. VillaNova, currently independent, was previously signed to Universal Republic (now Republic) and recorded their 2012 debut “WTF the EP” in LA with super producer Howard Benson (Papa Roach, Daughtry, Hoobastank, Seether) under the band name Weaving The Fate. They’ve been called contemporaries of break out bands such as AWOLNATION, Imagine Dragons, and Arctic Monkeys where heavy rebellion meets pop sensibilities.
