Little Stranger with special guests April B & The Cool, and Pip the Pansy!
Born and raised in Philly, crash landed in Charleston, Kevin and John Shields are breaking into previously uncharted waters with their quirky indie hip-hop group, Little Stranger. Between John’s melodic singer-songwriter magnetism, Kevin’s in-your-face delivery, and an overall undeniable groove, this duo is sure to get any audience up and moving. Stylistically similar to the Gorillaz but with a loose reggae beat, every track brings the uniqueness and strangeness that their name implies.
Expressive vocals and impressive guitar work are just part of what makes April B. & the Cool special. Drawing from hip-hop, soul, rhythm and blues, funk, rock, soul, jazz and reggae, April Bennett puts it all together in sultry and alluring fashion. The band features players familiar to Asheville audiences — members of The Marcus King Band, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band often turn up — but Bennett is the undisputed star of the show.
Pip the Pansy has been enchanting earthlings with her dreamy flute melodies, explosive synth hooks and colorful spirit since first landing in the Milky Way galaxy in 2016. Pansy brings her interstellar world to stages across the United States, leaving a trail of stardust and flowers everywhere she goes.
