Born from impromptu jam sessions at 87 Morris St. in Charleston, South Carolina, 87 Nights rose to prominence playing house parties and local venues in the spring of 2018. Led by frontman Zane Acord, 87 Nights quickly graduated from the college party circuit, and soon began opening for international acts like Mo Lowda and the Humble. 87 Nights developed a reputation as thrilling live performers, with the chops to play self-penned tunes ranging from the blues to psychedelic-rock. Evoking the strutting swagger of the Rolling Stones with “I Ain’t Your Man”, and hummable melodies of the Beatles on “Troublemaker”, their self-titled debut album, Eighty Seven Nights, solidified their reputation as one of the most exciting bands to emerge from the Charleston music scene in recent years.
The Stews’ sound takes inspiration from many different genres, styles and moods across a wide range of music. Consisting of four members, Preston Hall (Lead Vocals, Lead Guitar), Blake Dobbs (Rhythm Guitar), Bennett Baugus (Bass Guitar) and Wyatt Griffith (Drums and Backing Vocals), the band formed in the fall of 2020 in Auburn, Alabama. With very diverse influences, the music created by this group of young, creative musicians is enjoyed by people of all walks of life. On April 15th, 2021 The Stews released their first collection of music: a five song, self-titled EP, recorded at F.A.M.E. Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. It was well received by listeners, leaving the band excited for what the future has to hold.
