Sometimes writing under the name “Edythe Wayne,” the trio have been recognized in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and numerous BMI awards . Hits include “Stop!

Minus2 is an innovative group with definitive style and substance. The brainchild of two talented brothers, Daryl and Eric Minus, Minus2 uniquely combines jazz, funk, gospel, and R&B elements into a soul-stirring, colorful collage of urban instrumental artistry.
Between the two of them, the Minus brothers have been creating and performing diverse musical styles for 30 years. The two began their musical journey as horn players in elementary school with Daryl deciding to study trumpet and Eric choosing to pursue the saxophone. After years of developing an instrumental foundation from their exposure to classical and jazz music, the undeniable influences of gospel and funk eventually became well known components of the Minus Repertoire. As their musical horizons broadened, the Minus brothers picked up new instruments: Daryl gravitated towards the piano, and Eric focused his energies on the bass, guitar, and drums. The evolution of the Minus2 sound has been years in the making. The Brothers have now come full circle to create a signature sound of their own, using all the music influences that have shaped their creative existence over the years. Minus2 is a group with a purpose: To build artistic bridges between musical genres.
The Minus brothers co-founded an independent record label, In Season Music Group (ISMG), LLC in December 2000. ISMG was developed to satisfy the growing demand for innovative contemporary jazz and gospel music and has grown to become a multi-dimensional business entity. Under the ISMG label, the brothers have released two instrumental projects as Minus2, four gospel albums with artist Derek Dunn, and have written/produced/performed songs with a variety of jazz, rock, funk, and gospel artists throughout the United States.

African American Lecture Series: “Music of Black Migrationers” @ North Carolina History Center | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

Music of Black Migrationers

Music is a mainstay in African American culture. From the banjo to African Griots to work songs that lifted our spirits, music gave us hope and kept us sane since landing in America. This program will entertain and remind us that so much of America’s music is tied to that of migrating African Americans.

PRESENTER: DICK KNIGHT & COMPANY shares music of southerners who escaped the violence and injustices of the South to forge better lives and lasting careers by migrating from the South. These people became the backbone of American Music.  Come enjoy performances of songs by a few of those great artists such as W. C. Hendy’s “Memphis Blues;” Wilbert Harris’s “Going to Kansas City;” Huddie Lead Belly’s “Midnight Special;” Bessie Smith’s “Give Me A Pig Foot and a Bottle of Beer;” Muddy Waters’s “Got my Mojo Working;” Nina Simone’s “Trouble-in-Mind;” and more.

Brooke McBride is a 26 year-old singer/songwriter that prides herself in writing and singing “no fluff,” “no filler” just real, raw, country music. While originally hailing from the Tar-heel State of North Carolina, Brooke made the move to Nashville, Tennessee in January 2013. Originally a student of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, she transferred to Belmont University and received a B.B.A. in Music Business in May of 2014. Brooke is a 2013 Carolina Music award nominee for Best Female Country Artist, has been a featured extra on the hit television series “Nashville,” and was part of a CMA Promo Commercial for the 2013 CMA Awards in Nashville. Immediately after graduating from Belmont University in 2014, Brooke released her debut EP, aptly titled, “Songs About Carolina.” She and her band then hit the road touring everywhere from Massachusetts to Montana.
In 2016 she released the single, “Can’t Get Away,” which is a song about the differences (and similarities) of the demons and obstacles faced on and off the road. In 2019, she is set to release her most recent project, a five song EP entitled, Coming Clean.

Brooke plays an average of 100 shows per year ranging from honky tonks, festivals, corporate events, clubs, theatres, private events, radio shows, etc. Brooke’s usual set includes both originals and covers with covers ranging from Johnny Cash to Cee Lo Green. Described as “raw”, “sultry”, and “smokey/southern” no matter what your taste, Brooke’s unique voice and storytelling ability are sure to keep you entertained all night long.
