Preacher Stone w/Special Guests All of a Kind

Thursday, December 31, 2015 - 9:00pm until 11:45pm

Ring in the new year with an evening of energetic southern rock n roll! Preacher Stone has accomplished a lot for such a young band. Formed in 2008, they played first gig in January 2009 and  released a strong self-titled debut album that same year, which gained airplay in radio stations in US and Europe. Preacher Stone rose from the ashes of two local North Carolina bands, Phantom Park and Riddle. After some changes in the line-up, the band now features Ronnie Riddle on vocals, Benny Hunt and ex-Swampdawamp member Marty Hill on guitars, Mark Hill on drums, Jim Bolt on bass and Johnny Webb on keyboards. Not a Southern rock band, but “Rock Band from the South”, Preacher Stone songs feature topics close to their hearts such as love gone bad, drinking, Southern hospitality and friendship. Preacher Stone’s undeniable “bread and butter” is their live show. When they hit the stage, they give the people their money’s worth and I guarantee they’ll make a fan out of everyone in ear-shot.Preacher Stone’s self-titled debut came out in August 2009, proudly bearing the influence of Molly Hatchet and Lynyrd Skynyrd and captured the classic Southern rock sound while bringing it to the new millennium. (be sure to check out our review of Preacher Stone’s debut album) The album topped the charts in CDbaby and was followed by Uncle Buck’s Vittles in 2010 which turned out to be breakout year for the band. Preacher Stone song “Not Today” was featured on  FX Networks popular Sons of Anarchy series which introduced the band to whole new audiences.  Concerts with bands like Blackberry Smoke, The Outlaws and ZZ Top soon followed. In 2014 Preacher Stone released their third album, Paydirt, which was produced by Bruce Irvine from Guns and Roses and Bon Jovi fame. The band continues to tour heavily, reaching new fans all over United States.

All of a Kind is a local band from Clover, SC. Since the band's inception, they have been on a constant upward trajectory. Their first studio album was completed in 2015. They have collected two nominations from the Charlotte Music Awards in the Rock category. They have also been able to assist in areas of need in our communities using our passion for music as a way to raise money for people in unfortunate circumstances. The band has partnered with The Funky Geezer and been able to donate food and clothes to the homeless and have also dedicated time to mentor young musicians in training... all of which they believe is their reasonable service, not a point of boasting. AoK's funky/bluesy (and sometimes jazzy) Soulful/Rock sound has been  instrumental in pulling in fans at each gig. AoK is a band full of rabid music lovers so when you go to an All of a Kind show, expect to hear songs you weren't expecting. AoK LOVES to surprise the audience with their versions of great songs and of course, showcasing our original pieces.

Housed in a 100-year old building this facility is the culmination of dreams, a lot of hard and impassioned work, driven by the desire to share the magic of music with all who come. After a complete restoration and additional touches like re-sawing century-old wood to make the stage floor and bar top, the theater has been brought back to  status as a place to enjoy the arts in the downtown area.
