Motown Throwdown

Flight Deck Stage | 9pm-11:30pm

Motown Throwdown is a powerhouse soul band led by sax man Mike Quinn. Steeped in funk, soul, pop, rock, R&B, and jazz, this outfit of local heavyweights has established itself as a leader in the Charleston music scene, playing regularly at notable venues such as the Pour House and The Commodore. The 5-piece powerhouse consists of Mike Quinn on sax and vocals, Kanika Moore on lead vocals, Dave Grimm on Guitar, Stuart White on drums and the inimitable Corey Stephens on bass.

As the name implies, the music starts within the Motown soul tradition but manifests itself in a plethora of unique styles and arrangements from across the musical spectrum. Expect an enormously energetic performance with ripping solos, soulful vocals, and catchy, synchronized melodies on top of a thick, relentless funk driven core. Also, expect to dance and be wildly entertained.

Flight Deck Stage | Andrew Ellington on Drums | 11:40pm-1am

With roots in Washington D.C. and an early appreciation for a wide range of genres and styles, Kilgo entered electronic music in 2010 with the purchase of his first MIDI board. After a summer full of acquiring inspiration in Europe’s rave halls and bass dens, he decided to penetrate the Deep South – Charleston, SC. Many in this southern staple had never heard or felt the good vibrations, but this quickly changed as Kilgo infiltrated the scene, getting booked at every major venue and collaborating with some of the best in the business to form the StrawBerry Squad. Now with Kilgo’s relocation to the Live Music capital of the world (Austin, TX), his eyes are set on making some big moves in 2018

His ability to cross genres from Future Bass to Trap and Dubstep intersects with an intense passion for sonic and visual creativity. An in-depth knowledge spanning sound design, projection mapping, and creative events forms an all-encompassing production where no detail is overlooked. Pushing his show to the next level, Kilgo will be accompanied by powerhouse drummer, Andrew Ellington for a performance like no other. This rhythmic duo is sure to leave you wildly entertained and on your feet all night long.

Kilgo’s past gigs span the globe and has been provided for Shaun Frank, Riff Raff, Mimosa, Griz, Party Thieves, Bailo, Minnesota, Wuki, Styles & Complete, Russ Liquid, Candyland, TWRK, Haywyre, Psymbionic, The Geek x VRV, 12th Planet, GerryGonza, Walker & Royce, LUMBERJVCK, K Theory, Kevin Flum, Recess, The Polish Ambassador, Phutueprimitive, Archnemesis, and Time Flies
