What to Expect
An audience member should expect a high energy, rhythm-driven sound, but still very musical. It is our duty to serve the song. We engage with the crowd as much as possible, and strive to play music that the audience finds relatebale and fresh. Expect tight musicianship, dynamic contrast between songs, and a fun and positive feeling on stage.
The Charlatan Basement Blues Revue is a rock band based in Morganton, North Carolina. Formed in the Fall of 2013, over the past two years we have made such accomplishments as recording our own EP in a professional studio and performing at Downtown Hickory's Oktoberfest. All members are seasoned musicians. Our sets are always packed full of variety and energy.
We have covered everything from Freddie King to Mumford & Sons. “Rockytop, Tennessee" fits into our setlist just as comfortably and “Tenth Avenue Freeze-out." Many of our crowd favorites have also turned out to be our own original compositions, which add a unique twist and distinguishes us from just a typical cover band.
