Greg Payne & The Piedmont Boys with Canadian Club
Greg Payne & The Piedmont Boys with Canadian Club
Greg Payne and The Piedmont Boys started out in Greenville, SC in 2007. They’ve played thousands of shows, logged thousands of miles, released 4 albums, toured half the continental U.S., shared stages with everyone from Eric Church to Charlie Robison..hell, they’ve even played rodeos from Oregon to Texas. But wherever they go, the refrain of the fans who come up to them remains the same: “I never liked country music until I heard y’all.”

What these folks must be talking about is the watered-down pop-country stuff you hear on the radio nowadays, because if you don’t like REAL country…Merle, Willie, Waylon, Johnny…you won’t like Greg Payne and The Piedmont Boys.

If you don’t like against-the-grain, outlaw brand, whiskey-soaked, blue-collar honky-tonk music, the kind where the volume and the energy are dead ringers for rock & roll but the sound is gritty hard-country, you won’t like Greg Payne and The Piedmont Boys.

If you don’t like a live show that’s pedal-to-the-floorboard, rock the place down to the dirt and drain every drop of sweat from every human being in the house, you won’t like Greg Payne and The Piedmont Boys.

If you don’t like your Jerry Reed mixed with a little Metallica, if you don’t like a band that loves playing live so much that they’ve had one weekend off in seven years, if you don’t like country mixed with bluegrass mixed with southern rock mixed with a little…make that a lot…of Jack Daniels, you won’t like Greg Payne and The Piedmont Boys.

If any of that sounds like one hell of a good time, though, y’all come on in. The door’s always open.

With a Smashing debut to 10,000 people, opening for The Avett Brothers on New Year's Eve, the band found new fans and has been touring ever since.

Danielle Howle + Firework Show is a mix of world rhythms to honky-tonk swamp (John Picard on drums) swinging melodic bass (Casey Atwater) with percussive and lead guitar (Zach Bodtorf) all sizzling together to create an authentic roots/Americana sound in full service of Howle's skilled songwriting.

"What amazes me most about this ensemble is their ability to listen and stay in the tune while giving the honest showmanship to get the crowd on their feet to dance. This is the best ensemble I have worked with and look forward to every show, and rehearsal." says an enthusiastic Howle.

Considered by many to be South Carolina's best kept musical secret, Danielle Howle is a punk rock girl with the voice of a honkeytonk angel. Opening for such diverse acts as Bob Dylan, Ani Difranco, Fugazi, and Indigo Girls, she has garnered worldwide acclaim while somehow remaining under the radar of mainstream America. Now is the time for South Carolina to share it's secret with the rest of America.
