About Aaron LaFalce ( photos: )
Aaron LaFalce is an Asheville, NC native who recently took first place in the "Local Singer/Songwriter" & "Local Performance Artist" categories in the Mountain Xpress "Best of WNC" poll. Playing over 200 dates a year, his performance history stretches from New York's Carnegie Hall & National Underground to the beach bars of Tortola, BVI. His passion for songwriting and performance leave him with a reputation as an engaging artist. Whether it's behind a piano or with guitar in hand, Aaron has also proven to be a "jammer"-capable of holding his own in a solo performance or playing impromptu with the likes of Reggie McBride (bass for Stevie Wonder/Elton John/Keb Mo), Cliff Williams (bass for AC/DC), Drivin' & Cryin',& Peter Mayer (guitar for Jimmy Buffett/Peter Mayer Group). When it comes to writing or jamming, Aaron's philosophy is simple: "It's all about the song. Check your ego at the door." Additional information and audio:

About Dave Turner ( photos: )
Dave Turner caught the music bug at age six from the Beatles' Hey Jude on a jukebox in Rochester, Minnesota. He began playing the piano at age seven and writing songs in grade school, drawing a great deal of inspiration from Elton John. He’s performed in venues including The Grey Eagle in Asheville, The Bluebird Café in Nashville, The Metropolitan Room in New York and many other venues in the Southeast and beyond. His music has been described as “big voice and piano-driven songs with stories inspired by subjects such as empty pockets and starry skies, Kentucky bourbon, late-night diners, old lovers, Blue Ridge mountains, California dreams, desperation, roadside shrines, hangovers, unsent letters, beer joints, bar buddies, staying put and getting away.” Additional information and audio:
