Northeast State welcomes funky groove duo The Billies on June 29 at 7 p.m. They will be performing in the Regional Center for the Performing Arts, located on the College’s main campus in Blountville, adjacent to the Tri-Cities Regional Airport.
The Billies are lead vocalist Chrisie Santoni, who also plays guitar and keyboards, and Craig Smith on percussion and vocals. Based in Lancaster, Penn., The Billies have coined a unique style they call Low Country Groove. Their sound is a musical gumbo with hints of folk, Americana, country, pop, rock and a little dash of chill. Since 2006, the duo has played hundreds upon hundreds of shows in coffeehouses, wineries, farmers markets, restaurants, and college campuses.
The Billies are part of the College’s “Hot Nights, Cool Music” summer concert series. The series brings local, regional, and nationally known music acts to the College’s center stage. The concert is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
