“The Carvers, an eclectic young five-man band from Wilmington, revved up a standing-room-only crowd on Jan. 19 at Jack of the Wood pub in downtown Asheville. Judging from the audience response, the group appeared to live up to a promotion that stated: “The boys deliver a tastefully gritty combination of party crashing original songs and ‘Carverized’ arrangements of surf, garage and jazz gems. The Carvers provide their own brand of ’50s & ’60s garage, surf & stomp music” Among the group’s song repertoire are “Pop the Top,” “Death of an Angel,” ” The Skipper Strut,” “Is That So Wrong?” “007,” “The Seagate Stomp” and “Warren Oates.” “Though dated in the 1960s, the groovy, spooky sound cultivated from jangly guitars, cathedral keyboards and bashing drums remains timeless, and in part, ethereal,” a review on the website WilmingtonStarNews.com recently noted.”
