SuttleBand w/ SmackLily Live @ the Long Branch Saturday, March 21st

Check this show out! Great concert room for live music in case ya’ did’t know! Local groovesters – SuttleBand – team up again with Rock Hill’s favorite sons – SmackLily – for this body shaking, out-of-body musical experience. SuttleBand is also happy to have drum-master Dave Sarn back in action after unfortunate circumstances stole his SuttleBand debut back in December. Since the show must go on, SmackLily drummer and long time friend and former bandmate – Jim St.Clair – covered in grand style, pulling double duty (and double pay) that night. ;) Now we get to do it again, and in big fashion, at Rock Hill’s The Long Branch. 9:15pm Showtime for SmackLily. 10:30pm downbeat for SuttleBand. Only $5 to get in. kabooooooom!!

Saturday, December 13 @ Luke’s Sports Bar & Grille

Rock Hill’s homegrown groove-sters and rockers, SuttleBand & SmackLily, have joined together for this high energy show.  This milestone event starts at 9:15pm with Suttle taking the stage first.  This performance also marks the return of longtime regional mainstay SmackLily back to the stage after a 3 year hiatus and SuttleBand’s first show with new drum master David Sarn. Sarn’s addition came about this fall after longtime drummer Mike Scarboro left the band in July to pursue his graduate studies in Utah. Dave has proved to be a seamless transition with his amazing talent and immediate chemistry with the band. Don’t miss this Christmas Jam!

In addition to newcomer David Sarn on the skins, SuttleBand features regional mainstay Bryman Suttle on lead guitar and vocals, Aaron Thomas on bass guitar, and highlights vocalist compliment, Bronwyn Allen – whose hypnotic and inviting voice has been known to bring a grown man to his knees.

SmackLily members Jim St.Clair and Chad Gerald go way back with players Aaron, Bryman, and Dave all the way back to Northwestern High School in the early 90’s and Jeff Barrett and Bryman have been friends since Sullivan Middle School in Rock Hill.  What’s interesting is all of these folks have had on-again and off-again musical relationships having played in various bands with on another and in various combinations for over two decades.  If fact, Bryman, Aaron, Jeff, and Jim all began their musical journey together when Battalion first hit the stage in 1990 playing a mix of heavy metal, hair metal and later a little grunge.  Bryman left the band in 1992 to start regional funksters Chronic and Aaron, Jeff, Jim, and Chad went on to morph into local rock legends Bleeka and then, Smack Lily.  Smack Lily went dormant nearly four years ago with Aaron reconnecting with Bryman to develop the SuttleBand project.  This show marks the band’s long awaited return with new bass player in tote and there is no better way to relaunch a rock band than to partner with longtime friends and bandmates to party like rock stars with star studded crossover fan base that is sure to fill this very large room and that can consume enough alcohol to kill a large farm animal….

See you all at Luke’s!!
