Musical enterainment for 2018
Entertainment for Blue Ridge Fest includes three highly exciting and entertaining bands.
With a great line-up of bands, Blue Ridge Fest is a great venue for those who like to get up and dance or those who just want to listen. Take a look at this year's entertainers!
This year’s headliners, THE SPINNERS, were the greatest soul group of the early '70s, creating a body of work that defined the smooth sound of Philly soul. Ironically, the band's roots lay in Detroit, where they formed as a doo wop group during the late '50s. Throughout the '60s, the Spinners tried to land a hit by adapting to the shifting fashions of R&B and pop. By the mid-'60s, they had signed with Motown Records. They later signed with Atlantic Records. Between 1972 and 1977, the Spinners recorded a number of soul classics, including "I'll Be Around," "Could It Be I'm Falling in Love," "Mighty Love," "Then Came You," "Games People Play," and "The Rubberband Man." The group will always be remembered for its classic mid-'70s work. Listen to THE SPINNERS top 100 songs on the billboard charts throughout their successful career.
JIM QUICK AND COASTLINE have been touring the Southeast United States for more than 20 years, playing nearly 300 shows per year, and has released more than 11 albums including his newest, DOWN SOUTH. Originally introducing their music as the Coastline Band—a band of friends who played the Carolina beach bars day in and day out—the group pushed Quick to the forefront and naturally transformed into Jim Quick & Coastline. Known for his all-out performances and deliberate, off-the-cuff wisecracks, Jim has been a gracious recipient of the Carolina Music Awards “Entertainer Of The Year Award” – nine times.
MAGIC is a local variety band from Anderson, South Carolina. Their repertoire includes Beach Music and 50's and 60's dance classics. Magic plays with a contagious enthusiasm that is guaranteed to keep you and your audience dancing throughout your entire event.
