|The Floorboards are an Appalachian roots rock ensemble hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.|
The band marries rock & roll and country roots with the sights and sounds of southern mountain towns. Jake and Rob shake the leaves from the trees. Bob wails like a steam whistle cutting through the pines. Chris coaxes stringed cries from the hills and hollers. Matt tells the story.
The Floorboards have quickly become a staple in the Southeast and are branching out with purpose. Having co-billed with bands such as Trampled By Turtles, Yarn, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Laura Reed, and performed at venues and festivals in the southeast along side Drive by Truckers, Jackson Brown, Allison Krause and Union Station, the band is picking up steam like the 611 ((A 110 mph steam engine born in the Blue Ridge)!

South Street Tap Takeover
|Tuesday 05/12/2015 |
|You have probably heard of South Street Brews by now but just wait till you get to try some of these "one off and/or seasonals" we will have tapped. Great brew, great time, and great folks. Steal a pint while you're at it.|

|Inventive singer/songwriter/ guitarist / voice-instrumentalist and former subway musician, Lipbone Redding revs up the party and creates original songs that effervesce with New Orleans swing, Memphis grooves and New York City style. Known for his ability to use his vocal to sound exactly like a trombone, itís hard to tell the difference -- unless you witness the phenomenon live. Lipbone and his two-man orchestra make for a show greased with uncanny riffs of vocal trumpeting, booming mouth percussion, hilarious side moments and esoteric lyrics.|
