Upcoming Live Performances on MORNING BECOMES ECLECTIC with host JASON BENTLEY

Monday, September 20, The Walkmen pack a wallop on their stunning new release – a collection of raw rock songs performed in their distinctive style. We’re thrilled to have them back in the studio for a live session when they visit Morning Becomes Eclectic at 11:15am.

Tuesday, September 21, The members of Avi Buffalo may be just out of high school, but their music defies their age, with mind blowing guitar solos, intriguing lyrics and songs so catchy we can’t stop playing them. Tune in for a live session on Morning Becomes Eclectic at 11:15am.

Wednesday, September 22, Band of Horses have always been a station favorite but they took their sound to the next level on their latest release “Infinite Arms” as they travel through Americana and dewy pop songs. Morning Becomes Eclectic listeners will be treated to a live performance when the band returns at 11:15am.

Wednesday, September 29, British producer Jamie Lidell is a chameleon, sliding into neo-soul songs as easily as he slices through spacey folk-blues. He’ll share his talents with Morning Becomes Eclectic listeners, tune in at 11:15am.

Thursday, September 30, After years of enjoying songs from North Carolina’s Avett Brothers, we’re proud to feature a live session on Morning Becomes Eclectic with the group. If their new record is any indication– it promises to be stellar. Join us at 11:15am.
