Grammy-nominated North Carolina R&B vocal group The Hamiltones will play a special Thanksgiving weekend show at Snug Harbor with Durham’s Young Bull and Charlotte’s own Cyanca and Greg Cox. The surprise show presented by CLTure and Stella Artois will be held in the heart of Plaza Midwood at Snug Harbor on Saturday, November 30 from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m.
With the release of their first EP, Watch The Ton3s, The Hamiltones have cemented themselves as one of the fastest-rising indie R&B groups in the country. Coming up under the wings of Grammy award-winning artist, and Charlotte native Anthony Hamilton, the North Carolina-based group have been touring extensively over the last year with recent appearances on the Breakfast Club, Sway in the Morning, and Okayplayer.
Durham’s Young Bull have been catching the ears and eyes of music appreciators across the Southeast since 2014 with their unique blend of hip-hop, R&B, soul, and jazz. The talented three-piece group consisting of Tahmique Cameron, Christian Sinclair and Solomon Fox recently released their project, YBINAI, and are eager to perform tracks from the impressive five-song EP. Having accumulated well over four million streams on Spotify and sharing the stage with artists like Erykah Badu, Miguel, Thundercat, and Masego, Young Bull is a Carolina-bred group that is on the rise.
Gospel and R&B sounds have often merged in music, but not quite like Wilson, North Carolina native, Greg Cox. The distinct blend of gospel and R&B meld with his modern day hip-hop ingenuity on his latest full-length project ETC. Having recently collaborated with gospel music icon Kirk Franklin on his latest album Long Live Love, Cox also released an awe-inspiring song and music video for “Good Day.” Performing at the Dove Awards in October, the prestigious annual gospel music award ceremony, Cox is preparing for another big year in 2020.
Charlotte-based neo-soul songstress Cyanca has been making waves since the release of her 2017 EP, The Isle of Queens, with the spellbinding lead single “New Phone, Who Dis.” Following up on the project, Cyanca released a retrospective and sultry three-song project, I’m Staying Home, in July, continuing to build momentum as an emerging indie artist.
The Neo-Soul Friendsgiving concert is organized by CLTure in partnership with Stella Artois to provide a soul-filled event for friends, family and music appreciators over the holiday weekend in the heart of Charlotte’s Plaza Midwood. In addition to the music lineup, there will be a special activation by Stella Artois with more fun surprises to be announced.
