Join us every Sunday from 1-5pm for our weekly Sunday Funday Concert Series
& Bloody Mary Bar!

For this special edition of our Sunday Funday concert series, the Pour
House Music Hall has teamed up with Damn Lee Boy Productions & Guitartown.

The year was 1998 in Raleigh, NC. In a large Victorian style house on Boylan Ave, Greg Readling, Dave Wilson, Jay Brown, Colby Berry, & Craig Emmons spent their nights sharing a mutual admiration for their musical heroes. In the following years, Greg & Jay went on to join Tift Merritt’s band, Dave started Chatham County Line with John Teer & Chandler Holt, and Colby & Craig left Raleigh in the pursuit of fortune.

In 2005, Dave, Greg, Jay, & drummer Zeke Hutchins took a break from touring with Tift and recorded what would be the first Stillhouse record Through The Winter. With the busy schedules of Chatham County Line (which now included Greg on standup bass) & Tift Merritt, the band had little time for more than a sporadic live show through the years.

Fast forward to 2011 and the gentlemen finally got a break from the road and had a chance to regroup. They packed up their gear and headed to Konnarock, VA where a good friend owns the former town General Store. Over the course of 7 days, they got a chance to rekindle the music that brought them together so many years before. The result of this respite is the album The Great Reprise. The album features 10 songs captured live in the warm confines of the Konnarock Store. The Great Reprise is available on vinyl through CD Baby and each vinyl comes bundled with a CD of the full album.

New Bern, North Carolina native Jeremy Squires is a singer-songwriter best
known for his haunting melodies and evocative lyrics. Squires carries in
his voice the undeniable charms of the small Southern city, as well as a
darker, haunted undercurrent. The occasional chill can and should be
expected when listening to this talented songsmith.

“While Americana music is littered with melancholy tales of drinking, loss,
and broken romance, Squires delivers raw, concise lyrics – ungarnished by
flowery rhetoric that candidly spell out tragedy. Squires relates sadness
in a way that listeners can relate too.”
– No Depression

Awhile back, three guys came together in a living room in Hillsborough, NC to run through some 30s and 40s-era Western Swing dude-ranch favorites. Bringing a touch of Texas to Carolina, they decided to call themselves the Hill Country Cosmopolitans…and expanded their repertoire to include a little bit of country and honky tonk and even jazz as well. Danceable, catchy and infectious, Western Swing has a universal charm that people find irresistible…and the Hill Country Cosmopolitans want to share that fun with you at the next barn dance, beer joint, skull orchard, hoedown, shiv-a-ree, wedding, funeral, wake, bar mitzvah, cut ‘n shoot, pig pickin, BBQ, supermarket grand opening, car show, turkey shoot, party or family reunion near you.

GUITARTOWN (est. 1999):
The online community of Guitartown was created by Alison Williams in March
of 1999 on OneList.com (which was soon absorbed by Yahoo Groups) as a way
of bringing together fans of alt.country music in the Triangle area of
North Carolina. In the process, it also created a support system, not just
for fans of the demon twang but also for artists (local and otherwise)
touring through the region. Soon, the community grew to include folks from
throughout the U.S. and beyond. Internet newsgroups like Guitartown, No Depression, Postcard From Hell and others went a long way towards establishing the foundation of what is now referred to as social media.

All sales are final. All performances are 21+ unless noted on the event page.
