This group was fabulous! So easy to work with, professional and talented. I highly recommend them to any one in Western North Carolina or Upstate South Carolina.
In Sept of 2017, Jim Rollins was killed in a tragic automobile accident, which left the band heartbroken yet determined to continue to put out quality music with a little different vibe.
WESB plays locally as a 4 piece band, often bringing in Jared McEntire, to put in the bluegrass feel with his banjo. Charlie and Jared are cousins and have shared the stage in the Western North Carolina Band “Hickory Flat”.
West End String Band has released 3 CD's, the latest, “All Night Long”, featuring the 5 piece sound and feel the band had grown into throughout the years. You can catch WESB at many area music venues throughout the region, as well as Greenville city festivals, corporate events, and select weddings throughout the year.
The band enjoys its new feel as a 4-piece band exploring and developing new arrangements and instrumentation. We hope everyone will stay tuned to WESB and come out to a show soon.
