Pinedale, WY -Pinedale’s 12th Annual Soundcheck Summer Music Series concludes Friday, August 9 with The High Divers – a blues-rock group from Charleston, SC headlining the Legion Park Stage. Oklahoma City indie-folk trio The Annie Oakley will open the show.
With anthemic choruses, lush three-part harmonies, and rhythms rooted just as deeply in Motown as rock ’n’ roll, The High Divers create songs that nod to the classics, while carving out a sonic space of their own. A fixture of the South Carolina music scene, the band is known for its charismatic on-stage swagger and its ability to get the crowd completely and unabashedly involved. “Every show we play, I get people to sing along with us, and it’s a beautiful thing, something I look forward to every night,” says guitarist and vocalist Luke Mitchell.
The band is comprised of husband and wife, Luke Mitchell (Guitar/Vocals) and Mary Alice Mitchell (Keyboards, Vocals), along with Julius DeAngelis (Drums) and Kevin Early (Bass/Vocals). Each member of the band grew up on Hilton Head Island, before relocating to Charleston to officially form The High Divers.
Annie Oakley is an indie-folk band fronted by identical twin sisters Jo and Sophia Babb, paired with the violin and harmonies of Nia Personette. They’re keen on telling stories that touch on the most human of elements, finding the sweetest harmonies they can, and playing shows where they can meet their audience.
All Soundcheck shows are presented by the Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) and take place at American Legion Park in downtown Pinedale, WY. Music starts at 5 pm and all shows are free to the public so grab a camp chair, pack a cooler and head to Pinedale for the final night of the Soundcheck Summer Music Series!
