Get excited for Fat Cheek Kat’s Mountain Music Festival preview show at the Wild Bean on Friday, May 6th at 9pm! This early stop at the bean will give you a peak of what they are all about. You can also WIN TICKETS to the festival at this show!

Fat Cheek Kat is a funk/roots band out of Winston-Salem, NC, known for its rockin’ live shows, fun-loving stage presence, and down-to-earth vibe. While the band has been likened to a fusion between artists such as Galactic, Blues Traveler, and Ray Lamontagne, it is constantly evolving soulful, groove-based sounds all its own. Whether the Fat Cheek Kat is getting down with one of frontman Andrew Lazare’s originals or putting a unique spin on one of many great covers, for the audience the party never stops.

Wild Bean Lewisburg, WV

Mountain Music Festival is held at ACE Adventure Resort June 3rd and 4th and all bands will perform on the Greenbrier Valley Brewing Co Lake Stage.

This event will have a live art tent, lots of live music, a beach party, workshops, camping, and all the fun outdoor amenities Ace Adventure has to offer including white water rafting and zip lining.
