Morganton-based, classic rock groove-masters Almost Vintage bring the feeling of a carefree Woodstock afternoon to any venue they play! Steeped in the sounds and emotions of the 60's, 70's and 80's, they transport the listener to a simpler time when the music spoke for a generation. The band has played all over the tri-state area, with over fifty shows last year alone. "We have to have you guys back multiple times next year!" is the most common comment they hear!
Almost Vintage is made up of "The Queen of Bass" Meghan Liedkie on bass/vocals, Jimmy Allen on vocals/guitar, Dr. Chris Clapp on lead guitar, and the incomparable Michael Cain on drums. The band formed 4 years ago out of a deep desire to bring back music that they all loved from their youth. The pure joy of watching the band is truly the highlight of their live shows. "Lots of dance, lots of singing along with us!"
TGIF is Rain or Shine event.
