Rolling Smoke 10am-12pm @ Pig in the Park
Rolling Smoke…..a music revival born out of Southern roots, Southern soul, Southern grace, and truth. There’s a real search for truth and grace that come from the words and melody of each song that makes Rolling Smoke. From the signature tracks to the lyrics that pierce the heart, or even when we are just, as Doc Holiday would say, “funnin’ about”.…..it’s what we live, breath, and let simmer on the Grill inviting you to come over and “share a drink before the sun goes down”……..we’re Rolling Smoke!
Eastern Wayne Blue Notes 1pm-2:30pm
Under the Direction of Bobby Sherard, the Eastern Wayne Blue Notes are a jazz ensemble of talented students who play class and contemporary jazz music. The group has been recognized an an outstanding performing arts ensemble in Wayne County, and won the Battle of the Bands Competition at Cliffs of the Neuse State Park last spring. Come on out to the festival and chill out with some hot jazz at Beak Week!

For several years the group has been a guest on most of the major beach concerts in the Carolinas, Virginia, and Georgia.
