NC Local Music is celebrating 12 Years of booking/promoting local artists and what better way than to tie in the annual benefit for InterAct

For the past 12 years NC Local Music has been booking/promoting local North Carolina musicians (along with some out of state friends) in order to enrich the local community with the gift of original music and talent. We thank everyone involved in this journey.
Along with that is the annual Benefit for InterAct who remains dedicated to ending the cycle of domestic and sexual violence in Wake County, InterAct saves lives, rebuilds lives, and secures safer futures for victims and survivors and their families.

Proceeds from these events are donated to support InterAct and their mission of hope and support in the Wake County area.

A Benefit for

Meow House Cat Rescue

OCTOBER 13th 2018   7pm-2am


It started as a joke name for the event.  Co-founders of NC Local Music: Andy Washburn and Jeff Thomas  both celebrate birthdays a day apart.  In the start they wanted to throw an amazing birthday party with some of their favorite local artists as a way to celebrate birthdays collectively ( Jeff Thomas of JETMEDIANC  Formerly operating Vision Promotional Services) And Andy Washburn (NC Local Music)   teamed up  to help spread the word of some great local artists of various genres.    So the time came around to name the event…  Jokingly “AndyPalooza” was tossed around in discussion  and we thought it’d be funny because “Jeffapalooza” just didn’t have the ring to it, and what do you know… the name stuck.   So all joking aside.  AndyPalooza was born and we use the event as an opportunity to continue to support great music, and oftentimes donating the proceeds to a local charity.
This year we have chosen MEOW HOUSE CAT RESCUE.   To offer a helping hand to cats in need of rescue, provide them with food, love, and medical care, and house them safely until an appropriate forever home is found.


Last year we missed out on doing the event due to busy schedules , and we wanted to resurface and bring some friends together for this event.

Tickets will be available at  and proceeds will help with our Meow House Cat Rescue  fundraiser.   We hope you can join us!

NC LOCAL MUSIC 10 Year Anniversary

NC LOCAL MUSIC 10 Year Anniversary! And Benefit to support the family of Mike “SWINEZ” Swiney

A wonderful friend of ours Mike “Swinez”  Swiney  recently passed.  Mike was well known in the music scene as an avid supporter, promoter, booking agent, musician  who has worked with hundreds upon hundreds of bands. From local acts, regional acts, and national acts.

Swinez was a near and dear friend of NC Local Music  through his company  SMS Booking & Promo  and we shared many shows, laughs and passion for the music community together.   So we decided what a better way to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of NC Local Music, by dedicating our anniversary in honor of our fallen brother.   Proceeds from the event will go to support his family to cover expenses and to help with bills, funeral expenses and to show our love and appreciation for all Swinez has contributed to the passion that is music.

We have organized a great line up of bands that NC Local Music and SMS Booking & Promo have worked with over the years to honor  our fallen brother, and hope that you will be able to attend.  If unable to attend a donation would be greatly appreciated in honor of Swinez to his family.  Kristen and Brody could use our support.

The event will be at The Maywood
