The New Rustics return to The Grey Eagle patio stage on Saturday April 17! A very limited number of tickets are available now!

Bound together by instrumental improvisations and meaningful lyrics, they add a modern-day twist to a classic rock style. The New Rustics have been compared to legendary artists such as The Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, Little Feat, Uncle Tupelo, Tom Petty, Arlo Guthrie, and the Drive-By Truckers just to name a few. Their catchy melodies will have you singing in no time, but don’t think you’ve got them figured out just yet! Known to change gears on you, they’ll keep fans on their toes while moving their hips!

The Texas Gentlemen
Apr 17 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm
The Grey Eagle
The Texas Gentlemen bring their swagger to The Grey Eagle stage in Asheville NC on Saturday April 17, 2021!


Pop on Floor It!!!, the new and second full-length effort from the Texas Gentlemen, and prepare your eardrums to be hit with everything from woozy, brass-fueled Dixieland-style jazz (“Veal Cutlass”), to slinky, chicken-scratch country funk (“Bare Maximum”) to lushly orchestrated pop-soul balladry (“Ain’t Nothin’ New”)—and that’s all in just the first 10 minutes of play time.


While the Gentlemen’s sound is clearly steeped in the classic roots, rock and pop music of the ‘60s and ‘70s, there’s a dreamy (the lilting “Sing Me to Sleep”), spacey (“Skyway Streetcar”) and occasionally progressive (“Dark at the End of the Tunnel”) element to what they do that seems to detach the music from belonging to any particular place and time. Add in elements of funk, soul, country, r&b, southern rock, gospel and essentially any other style that catches their musically omnivorous ears; an expansive and detailed approach to arrangement that sees the songs adorned with all manner of horns, strings and heavenly background vocals (“Hard Road”) and you have a collection of tunes that is more than just a mere album. Rather, Floor It!!! is a rich and righteous ride.

LIVE STREAM: The Travis Book Happy Hour ft Andy Falco
Apr 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Online w/ The Grey Eagle

The Travis Book Happy Hour live from The Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC! Live streaming on The GE’s Facebook page and on all IAMAVL channels.
– VIRTUAL TIP JAR : Paypal.me/TheGreyEagle

TRAVIS BOOK (of The Infamous Stringdusters )
The Travis Book Happy Hour is a 90 minute variety show hosted by Travis Book; bassist, songwriter, and vocalist in the Grammy Award winning bluegrass band, The Infamous Stringdusters, streaming live from the historic Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC. Born from his desire to bring musicians and friends together for collaboration and conversation, Travis launched the series in the summer of 2020 amidst the uncertainty of the Covid-19 crisis and a country divided. Faced with a cascade of existential questions about the nature of life and of being, Travis sought an outlet for inquiry, and individuals to help him dig deeper into what it means to be a musician and a creative being in the context of an ever-changing world. Unique, spontaneous musical collaboration with friends and contemporaries leads to singular moments of harmony and the occasional musical train-wreck… The Travis Book Happy Hour is his attempt to shine light into the darkest corners of our lives; to dive deep into the nature of our being and emerge bathed in the love, happiness, grace, and gratitude that’s available to us all, and hopefully, to make some beautiful, meaningful music along the way.
Andy Falco is a Grammy winning guitarist, singer, songwriter and producer from Long Island, New York specializing in American roots music. He is a member of jamgrass band The Infamous Stringdusters who won a Grammy for best Bluegrass Album in 2018. Andy has also performed or recorded with many artists throughout his career including Phil Lesh, David Bromberg, Joss Stone, Levon Helm, Keller Williams, The Travelin’ McCourrys and many more.
Andy spent his formative years playing blues, funk and R&B on Long Island and in the New York City music scene of the 90’s when it was defined by the various small venues curating vibrant musical environments. The scene provided opportunities to learn from and occasionally sit in, jam, or work with many great musicians like Jimmy Vivino, Johnny Johnson, David Amram, Gavin Degraw and Vanessa Carlton.

PATIO SHOW: An Evening of Americana with My One And Only + Wyatt Espalin
Apr 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Grey Eagle

My One and Only & Wyatt Espalin provide an evening of Americana music on The Grey Eagle patio stage on Thu 4/22. Reserved seats on sale now
“Southern-Soul and Curious-Grit”
Emotionally-honest lyrics will bid you to wander through hidden scenes in their lives, accompanied by raw vintage guitars and the intimate harmonies that only life-long lovers could discover. With their polar-opposite musical backgrounds, Kassie and Benjamin meld old-school country, singer-songwriter, and alternative folk-rock into a sound that can only be described as “Southern-Soul with a heap of Curious-Grit”. As to sound, the Americana duo is driven by a racing-striped acoustic guitar (with some family history) and a suitcase kick-drum, but the bold vocal harmonies seal the deal. Kassie and Benjamin’s voices intertwine seamlessly, roaring with angst at moments, and creating moments of sweet delicacy at other times. Presented the “Discovery Award” by acclaimed music critic Robert K. Oermann (Nashville’s Music Row Magazine), My One And Only declares performance as their love-share to the world.
Michael Logen
Apr 22 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Peace Center

Hero Image

Grammy-winning artist Michael Logen’s work is found everywhere – from the radio to the silver screen, Rio and beyond!

A prolific lyricist, Logen’s songs have been recorded by household names like Rodney Carrington, Sister Hazel, and Brandon Heath. The Nashville-based artist is behind title tracks, chart-toppers, and Grammy-nominated singles. His original, acoustic version of a song he wrote with Jennifer Hanson, “Breaking Your Own Heart,” was covered by Kelly Clarkson on her platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated album, Stronger.

Logen’s success doesn’t stop with songwriting. In 2016, his song, “Couldn’t Ask For a Better Friend,” gained international recognition when it played prominently throughout the Rio Olympics after being chosen as the theme for Folgers award-winning ad. That is not the only silver screen appearance. His music also has been featured on hit TV shows, including NashvilleSuits, and One Tree Hill. As a performer, Logen has opened for John Legend, India.Arie, Mat Kearney – to name a few!

The multitalented singer-songwriter’s sophomore album New Medicine is “an articulate, measured examination of the inner-workings of the human mind and heart on a backdrop of gorgeous, sweeping, acoustic-based, rhythmic folk-pop.”

Lost Dog Street Band
Apr 22 @ 9:00 pm
The Orange Peel

Ages 18+

This show was originally scheduled for April 2, 2020, and then October 27, 2020. Previously purchased tickets will be honored at the rescheduled date.

“I wanted to dig under the darkest impulses of humanity for this album, and that is violence, selfishness, and destruction,” says Benjamin Tod, guitarist, vocalist, and primary songwriter of Americana trio Lost Dog Street Band. The Muhlenberg County, Kentucky-based group’s latest album, its fifth overall,Weight Of A Trigger, out March 29th, is a potent distillation of its outlaw heartache soul.

The dark impulses Ben sings about are simply the demons that have driven him since he was a teen. At 16, Ben left home to play music on the streets.Since then, he’s lived under bridges, rotted in jails, sought shelter hopping freight trains, battled addiction, and seen friends turn blue in the face and die. In some states, he remains a wanted man with active warrants. Though Ben has been aimless, and destructive, he’s always been prolific through exorcising his demons in song. Even if that meant writing songs at 7:00 AM in dank and dark basements strung out on drugs and drunk.
