A Course Of Action to perform in Raleigh February 15th
A Course of Action is a powerful foursome that brings many years of musicianship and a genuine love of music for the sake of music. They are known for incredibly tight live shows, commercial edgy, radio-friendly, hard-rock music that promises to break the cycle of “new” rock styles and refocuses listeners on solid rock music, with clear influences of Alice in Chains, Tool, Sevendust and current influences such as Alter Bridge.
Lead guitarist, Jonathan Byrd, played on the national scene in a Mercury Records act known as Copperhead in the early 1990’s, but when that band met their demise, he and former Copperhead bassist, Tony Hawkins formed Hybrid in 2000. They recruited for 3 years to find the right singer to solidify their vision for Hybrid, and they found that reality in John Culberson, a South Carolina native who also had regional success in True To One. Hybrid had a lot of regional success from 2003 until 2008, but with the advent of social marketing, the name Hybrid became too broad to brand. The band was at a crossroads, and with an imminent name change, also came a lineup change, when the band parted company with drummer, Okey Parsons. The band soon added Florida native, JT Silvestri on drums and most recently, the band said goodbye to founding member, Tony Hawkins, but gained Wes Johnson on bass guitar.
The band has been making huge strides month after month since then. 2012 has been a fantastic year, and bodes well for the events to come in 2013. A Course of Action will be a band to watch. The band is known for tight live shows, great music and solid original material. Hailing from North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida, the group brings many years of musicianship and a genuine love of music for the sake of music. That coupled with a strong DIY work ethic, the band seems poised for great things.

Eyes of Emiline
Eyes of Emiline is a country sister trio, Amanda, Jessica, and Emily King, with voices that blend in harmony like the colors of a rainbow. Not to mention they are smokin’ hot! Their on-stage charisma is powerful. While their primary genre is country, they dabble in bluegrass, southern rock, pop, and Christian music. Last December they launched their first cd “Perfect” and hit the ground running. They have performed at The Rudy Theater in Selma, the Royal Palace Theatre in Roanoke Rapids, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, and in fairs, festivals, and restaurants in NC, SC, VA, and WV. In small venues, they can perform with a guitar and keyboard, and in larger venues with their entire band, Conoho Creek. The most seasoned performer of the group is guitarist, Ronnie Waters, who has played all over the country and is in the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. Waters is also a studio musician who has played with groups as varied as Maurice and the Zodiacs to the Louvin Brothers to George Strait. If you want to add something special to your event, Eyes of Emiline will not disappoint.
