Quest Brewing Co. is proud to host Tonight’s Noise on Thursday June 23. The show starts at 7PM with no cover charge. Food will be available for purchase with Automatic Taco Food Truck.

‘Tonight’s Noise was formed in early 2012 in upstate South Carolina with the goal in mind of bringing together the most capable and diverse musicians the southeast has to offer. A trio of working musicians who can reach from deep down, sultry blues to blistering fast bluegrass bliss at the nod of a head. With an array of originals taking you across landscapes of latin grooves and funk flavors with a new grass/roots feel that reminds you that you’re still home.

Bassist Sam Kruer and guitarist Matt Fassas first met at Eastern Kentucky University where both were studying music and getting hired out by a variety of local talent, including their own college music professors. Around the same time, mandolin player Matt Purinton was making his first big move from the Carolinas out west to Colorado where he toured the west coast and Rocky Mountains with various jam/bluegrass outfits.

Around early 2009 the Carolina’s were calling Purinton to come back home, and for Fassas to find a new start. Greenville, SC provided a comfy nest for the musicians to grow, and a nice place for Kruer to land in mid 2011. Now Tonight’s Noise is taking over and turning heads as they gear up for a tour in Fall 2012.

Members of Tonight’s Noise have performed with or opened for the following artists: Leon Russell, The Avett Brothers, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Rebecca Lynn, John Keane, The Asylum Street Spankers, The Blind Corn Liquor Pickers, and many more…’
