Carolina Thunder is a bluegrass/gospel band hailing from Forest City, NC. We currently have four members who are all under the age of 18. All four of us were the original members of the bluegrass/gospel band Blue Ridge Holler, led by Tyler Dodson, who is currently the guitarist for Most Wanted Bluegrass. We have played at many churches and bluegrass events, including some bluegrass festivals, like the Catawba Valley Music Festival, the Darin & Brooke Aldridge Music Festival, the Ellenboro Bluegrass & Fiddler's Convention and the Ottis Cook Memorial Gospel Music Festival. Tyler Dodson and Jamie Renfro appeared with Most Wanted Bluegrass and Daniel Perry from the Moore Brothers Band on the Red, White and Bluegrass Festival stage in 2012. In November 2011, we won the People's Choice Band Award at the Ellenboro Bluegrass & Fiddler's Convention as Blue Ridge Holler. Unfortunately, several issues came up between the Blue Ridge Holler band that caused our split. We played our last performance as Blue Ridge Holler on August 9, 2012. We were all bandless for about a month before we decided to form our own band without Tyler Dodson, while Tyler joined Most Wanted Bluegrass. That was the beginning of Carolina Thunder. Our first performance was at the Union Mills Learning Center in Union Mills, NC on September 21, 2012.
Carolina Thunder will be the featured band at the Union Mills Learning Center on November 30, 2012. Come between 6:00pm and 7:00pm to purchase a meal. Admission is $5.00 at the door. Bring the children for free. Bluegrass fans are encouraged to come and have a great time! Also, you can see all of the upcoming Friday night bluegrass performances hosted at UMLC by going to www.unionmillslearningcenter.org/LiveMusic.html or by tuning into their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/UMLC1.
