You won’t want to miss this special New Year’s Eve concert featuring a few of Winston-Salem’s favorite musical sons.
Peter Holsapple and Chris Stamey will perform perhaps their most beloved record, 1991's Mavericks, in its entirety, on Dec. 31, at the Hanes Brand Theater. Although the pair's records with the dB's have found almost universal critical acclaim, it is Mavericks — with its Everly Brothers-style harmonies and more acoustic-based timbres — that often tops fans' playlists. Joining Peter and Chris for this rare concert will be bassist (and noted producer) Jeff Crawford, NY-based pianist Charles Cleaver, and special guests. http://www.holsapplestamey.com
Jeffrey Dean Foster and the Birds of Prey will be performing songs from their upcoming album The Arrow. Singer, guitarist and songwriter Jeffrey Dean Foster dates his musical career back in the mid-Eighties, when he co-founded The Right Profile. One of the first and best bands on North Carolina’s fertile indie music scene, the Winston-Salem-based quartet played high-energy, rootsy rock and roll. www.jeffreydeanfoster.com
