Genre: Progressive Southern Funk Rock
Porch 40 formed in 2012 at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. They play a style of highly Progressive Southern Funk Rock that has won over an eclectic audience everywhere they perform. Incorporating elements from R&B, Jazz, and Funk with the best of the Rock, Progressive, Indie and Metal, they cross over genres with ease.
From the famous Bele Chere festival in Asheville, to clubs across the southeast including The House of Blues in New Orleans, The Orange Peel in Asheville, and The Fillmore in Charlotte, the band has a growing and wildly dedicated fan base.
Among the best and most original bands to come out of North Carolina, their insanely tight, engaging and energetic performances make them favorites wherever they go.
