About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

The legacy of bluegrass music lives on in many styles, but the musicians defining themselves in tradition uphold the stories and techniques of yesterday’s music. For more than two decades, one band doing that has been The Local Boys, a Bluegrass and Americana band based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Local Boys love music that has grown and evolved over decades—old-time, bluegrass, country, and rock ’n’ roll. Beginning their musical journey over 20 years ago in Maryland, The Local Boys have a long tradition of celebrating the deep roots of traditional bluegrass music. They've performed across the country at iconic events such as Merlefest, Brushy Mountain Apple Festival, Louisiana Spring Fest, Mountain Music Day Festival, Heritage and Harvest Festival, Hot Rod Power Tour, and more. Releasing their first original ten-song album entitled Stories in 2022, The Local Boys take pride in their past as a band while also looking toward the future and all of the new opportunities that it brings. You'll love this unique style of Bluegrass!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 15, 2019From Midland, NC

The local boys did an outstanding job at our wedding!!! We had our reception out on our farm and they were so easy to work with and I did not have to worry about anything. The guest loved getting to hear them play and they made it all so simple. They all came dressed sharp and made such a good impression on our guests! I would very highly recommend them and hope to get to use them for other events in the future!!

The Local Boys played at our wedding reception and sounded FANTASTIC! They helped to create a special playlist with some of our favorite songs and were so accommodating. Very nice guys and all of our guests enjoyed them! Would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a bluegrass band for ANY occasion.
