Flat Rock-based honky tonk rockers make Tryon debut

The Carburetors bring their honky tonk rock ‘n’ roll and signature Southern swagger to Tryon Fine Arts Center on Thursday, May 18 at 7 p.m.

Based in Flat Rock, N.C., the band includes Jay Goree on acoustic guitar, Mark Warwick on electric guitar, Duke Domingue playing bass and Bill Munoz on percussion. With a wide range of influences, they classify themselves as “chicken-fried-country-rock-grass,” but we think they sound like a good time!

Brandon Reynolds writes in Style Weekly magazine that “The Carburetors make noise with skill, humor and, I dare say, a little class. These guys play American driving-down-the-road music, good like bluegrass, poorly behaved like rockabilly.”

The Carburetors make their Tryon debut as the sunsets over the Blue Ridge Mountains behind TFAC’s Peterson Amphitheater. The Sunset Series is sponsored by the Plume Family Foundation. Admission to the concert is by donation at the door. More information about Tryon Fine Arts Center and the Sunset Series is available at
