Friday, June 12 - event cancelled

Porch 40 (Rock/Funk Group) are headed back to Morganton on Friday June 12th. Come see this lively group, dubbed as one of the most original and talented bands from North Carolina. Grab a chair or blanket and head to the Courthouse Square in downtown Morganton for a FREE concert under the stars. Food and beverage vendors will open at 6:00pm and the music plays from 7:00-10:00pm. The TGIF Concert Series runs every Friday in May, June and July (except July 3rd). We will see you on the square!

Porch 40 delivers a hip take on modern Rock & Pop while capturing a hint of cool that can only be attributed to the Funk. The band formed in 2012 at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. Word of their electric live performances quickly attracted regional attention and a loyal, growing following.

Porch 40 is especially known for their extraordinarily intense live shows and high level of musicianship. They have shared the stage and performed with Blues Traveler, Galactic, The Doobie Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band, REO Speedwagon, Leftover Salmon, Jackie Greene, Tauk, Big Something, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, The Suffers, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and more.

One of the most original and talented bands to come out of North Carolina, Porch 40’s engaging songs and energetic shows make them favorites everywhere they perform.

Porch 40 is: Scott Burr - Vocals/Saxophone, Andrew Duncan - Vocals/Rhythm Guitar, Carter McDevitt - Vocals/Bass, Mitchell Metz - Vocals/Violin and Brett Wilson - Drums.
