The Paper Crowns to headline Summer Tracks

Published 5:49 pm Friday, September 1, 2017

The 18th season of Tryon’s most popular summer event – Summer Tracks – presents an encore concert on Friday, September 8 with The Paper Crowns Band. The show begins at 7 p.m. in Rogers Park.

The Paper Crowns’ Spiro and Nicole are one of the premier duos on the Southeast music scene. For this special concert, they have returned to their jam and psychedelic roots with their full-on electric six-piece ensemble – The Paper Crowns Band. Their sound is a medley of Blues, Southern Rock, American Folk and Jazz, Gospel and Funk. Their musical intensity and soul has earned them comparisons to Tedeschi Trucks Band. Tonight’s show features Steve Kemble (drums), Chris Kew (bass), Eric Swanson (keyboard) and Augustin Frederic (percussion).

The Paper Crowns have played such events as: Warren Haynes Christmas Jam by Day, Mountain Sports Festival, Soulshine Farm Music Festival, South By South East and more. Their music has found placement in major network TV campaigns and online ad campaigns including for the Olympic Games, Visa, Court TV and Pepsi.
