2024 Outdoor Concert Series Update

Hello music lovers! Against the background drone of the 13 and 17 year cycle cicadas, we want to let you know what concerts and events Sonic Pie Productions is working this month. Let’s start with Blues and Gospel. We’re the sound production company for Music Maker Foundation’s annual, FREE Freight Train Blues Series. This is at Carrboro Town Commons (Carrboro, NC).

If you prefer being at an intimate jazz club, surrounded by cocktails, we’re also the sound crew at Missy Lane’s Assembly Room, 310 E. Main Street, Durham, NC. The calibre of talent coming through here is amazing. This weekend is flautist Rebecca Kleinmann and vocalist BeMyFiasco. Next weekend: trumpet innovator Keyon Harrold AND Missy Lane’s opens as a coffee shop each day 8 a.m.-4 p.m. (9 a.m.-2 p.m. weekends.) BUY TICKETS

Over to Boxyard RTP, the open air venue of local restaurants, cafes and bars in Research Triangle Park, NC, a new batch of May residencies includes Mysti Mayhem. All music and DJs are free and open to the public and there is ample, free parking.

Next weekend the crew is off to Salisbury, NC for Hippie Fest and we’ll leave you with two recap photos. We were asked to curate a stop off event for a bus tour (Boom Unit Brass Band, selfie courtesy of the band) and Andmoreagain Presents brought LA LOM (Los Angeles League of Musicians) to Missy Lane’s last month (photo credit: DLM Studios.)

Until next time!
