Main Stage (City Plaza)
As the word spread about this funky, soulful, bluesy band, inevitably those sessions transferred into writing music and playing house parties. And Duck began booking gigs at venues around North Carolina while sharing their passion for making crowds boogie to their upbeat and funky sound. In 2021, with the addition of Donnie Tyree on vocals, Duck has found their groove both performing and writing originals with a solid assembly of talent: Donnie Tyree on vocals, Mike Swartz on guitar, Chuck Rhew on keys, Chris Holloway on bass and Fred Dees on drums and electric washboard. All band members participate in writing music and lyrics. Their most recent album, Live at Lincoln Theatre, recorded in Raleigh, NC summer of 2021, can be found on all streaming services.
