The New 76ers, an acoustic band from North Florida, will perform at the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center on Saturday, October 19th at 8pm.
The New 76ers generate a unique sound grounded in a collective respect for acoustic and electric music. Creating by instinct, they allow vocals to meld into harmonies and let those harmonies take the spotlight. The New 76ers have released multiple recordings on their label Ping Records, such as I Try to Sing Along (2010), the full-length record Superhighway (2011), Demolition Man EP (2013), and their second full-length record In the Light (2014). As a family trio, they draw from their deep-rooted Southern musical heritage and aim to create music that will move the listener physically and spiritually. As stated on their website, their mission is to give love through their music and they believe that music is, and always will be, a force to compel change. Doors open at 7pm and food will be available from Chef Richard’s Kumquat Kitchen. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 day of show. Tickets are available online at wslr.org or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
Local psychedelic folk band Experimental Farm Road, founded in the summer of 2017 by Zeena Brown, Miranda Becker, and Sabrina McClenithan, will open the show. With their vintage covers, eclectic songwriting, and groovy originals, they bring the ‘60s to life on stage.
