Asheville Music Scene For Soon-To-Be Spouses
Marrying Sound and Style
By Emily Katt
Asheville Music is what makes Asheville’s house a home, and the musical hearths here beautifully abound. From unassuming troubadours strumming on street corners, to full band sound pouring out of open doors. You can’t go far in Asheville without being embraced by some sweet, songful Asheville Music. If music gathers people and makes a party, then welcome to the party.
The mountain beauty and freeform spirit of its citizens give Asheville its own form of a musical magnetic draw. But– boasting some of the nation’s top live music venues (as recognized by a vote of touring musicians as well as national publications like Rolling Stone and Garden and Gun) doesn’t hurt either.
Regularly returning to the Asheville scene are true musical greats across wildly varying genres. Ranging anywhere from jazz to bluegrass, Celtic to funk, Americana to afrobeat. You might see lineups at the Isis including Sam Bush or Taj Mahal. While, across town, Biltmore Estate’s got Summer Concert series appearances booked for Amy Grant or Chicago. The Grey Eagle Tavern and Music Hall bring in names like the Avett Brothers, Frank Black, and Jill Andrews.
Ween and Wilco have played sold-out performances at The Orange Peel Social Aid and Pleasure Club. The big names bring big crowds of course, but there is no shortage of up-and-coming homegrown musicians. Musicians like Carley Arrowood, or Underhill Rose, can just as seriously rock the house.
To pull people together best, to celebrate an epic marriage, the best ingredient is love, blended beautifully with rich live music. And, for sheer choices, Asheville’s music scene offers the best-stocked pantry to pull from for a party with all the fixings.
We Specialize in All-Inclusive
At first, we thought all-inclusive meant just having all the infrastructure ready to go for the couple, so what looks like such a simply beautiful, largely outdoor wedding could be as clean and simple as the lines of the tent. There should be no hassles about getting in all the infrastructure and having it ready for your wedding. We did not want to witness a rental truck showing up at the last minute and a mom or bridesmaid, or the couple themselves, setting up chairs and tables–even mowing the yard–on the morning of the wedding. These were all things Jeanne witnessed repeatedly over the years. No wonder people were exhausted before their wedding even began…
