The Munroze were formed by Stephen Howard and Jack Derienzis. After finding Clint Sobie and then Chris Phillips the lineup was complete. All the players are seasoned veterans in the music business and have had many years of stage experience. So it's no surprise that the song choices, style and direction of the band came together very quickly. The Munroze specialize in some of rock's most classic hits but it's not the typical "classic rock" that you hear being overdone by so many bands. The song list that they have put together is a much needed breath of fresh air in the North Carolina music scene.p>

DR. BACON is a 7 Piece touring Appalachian Funk, Grass and Rock & Roll band. Blending incredibly diverse instrumentation with broad, deep musical influences, allows the band to perform a plethora of widely accessible, danceable music.
The Dr. Bacon Live Experience is truly a spectacle to behold, bringing the audience on a musical Journey that lulls and spikes in energy, caressing ears with lush beauty and whipping crowds into a tribal romp, shaking booties and shedding inhibitions. This manic versatility ensures that no matter what genre of music you identify with most, you will hear something that resonates. Dr. Bacon started playing together in 2012 on King Street in Boone as a 3 piece busking with acoustic bluegrass, folk, and 90s pop/rock/hip-hop influenced music. Several lineup changes over the years and a move to Asheville have refined and redirected the band’s sound, incorporating funk, rock, soul, psychedelic and world music to Appalachian influences. The blending of several elements of these genres (often within the same song) along with unique instrumentation is the real Bacon flavor.
