Caroline Keller Band
Caroline Keller Band are storytellers at heart. Timeless melodies and thoughtful, reverent lyrics draws the listener in and transports them to another time and place making each performance more of an experience.
Caroline Keller Band say their main goal with their songwriting is to be “Authentic”. Authentic to themselves and authentic to their audience. Strong songwriting and musical prowess brings the songs to life whether it is in a small, intimate venue or on one of the many larger stages that the band has performed on during its career.
Caroline has been pursuing her dream of being a Country music artist from a very early age. She made a name for herself as a Country Gospel singer starting when she was sixteen. She recorded three albums and topped the Country Gospel charts, with four songs ranked in the top ten.
Caroline wants to inspire. She’s a songwriter who understands that the hard parts of life — the parts that stick with you — can’t always be expressed with simple words. Sometimes, you have to put those words into a song.
Caroline has paired with fellow songwriters and touring musicians Scott Spruill, John Christenbury and Clint Presley forming the "Caroline Keller Band." The band, at its core, are four friends that have music running through their veins. They are adventurers, coffee drinkers, and lovers of traditional country music. Their sound has been described as "Traditional Country with an Americana flair".
In the summer of 2016 they were invited to be a part of the Sunday night writers nights at the Bluebird café and have since been making quarterly appearances. They were awarded the 2017 Don Gibson Singer Songwriter Symposium award with their song "The Way It Goes" as well as 2019 Queen City Country Female Artist of the Year and 2018 Carolina Music Award Best Americana Band.
Jason Allen King
Jason Allen King is a comedian, writer, actor, and award-winning filmmaker based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Using the backdrop of his personal experiences, family, and relationships (or lack thereof), King’s stage presence evokes a unique perspective on familiar situations. A northerner who’s been living in the south for too long, he has endeared himself to audiences across the country by pushing the occasional boundary through a positive and sharp spin on observation and self- deprecation.
Recently voted Charlotte’s Favorite Comedian by Elevate Lifestyle, King has opened for renowned comedians like Rob Schneider, Christopher
Titus, Colin Quinn, and Dave Attell. Other notable honors include It’s A Southern Thing’s One of 15 Southern Comics to Watch and Best of the Fest at the Burbank Comedy Festival. King also writes and stars in the popular web series “George & Monty,” which was invited to screen at the L.A. Comedy Shorts Festival.
