June Tunes spotlights local band

Mint Hill’s own Horsefly played at the Town Hall last Saturday for June Tunes, and pulled in quite a crowd.  The blues and classic rock n roll band was formed last August through the monthly jam sessions at local Forty Rod Roadhouse on Lawyers Road.  June Tunes visitors enjoyed a taste of their classic sound.

Horsefly is a foursome: Paul Miller on vocals and rhythm guitar, Kevin Scruggs on lead guitar and vocals, Fuzzy on bass, and Jack Dunne on drums.  They list Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, The Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix as influences, which is evident in their sound and song selection.

Horsefly took listeners back to an innovative time of blues rock.  It was the perfect music for an evening’s lawn concert.

In their short existence, Horsefly has managed to become the house band for Forty Rod’s monthly Charlotte Blues Jams.  They placed second in a battle of the bands at the 2011 Stumptown Skirmish, and third place in the Charlotte Blue’s Society’s 2011 annual band competition at the Double Door Inn.

  1. Thanks so much for covering our performance, Ms. Waters! We really enjoyed talking with you before the event started and noted that you were taking some photos as we played. We’re also very appreciative of the turn out by the townsfolk, as well as friends who don’t live in Mint Hill but came anyway. Most particularly we’d like to thank Town Commissioner Tina Ross who runs the “June Tunes” Concert Series for her encouragement and support. THANK YOU MINT HILL!!

  2. Superb band! I love seeing this fine band whenever I can, and am especially proud that they are fellow Mint Hillians! Get out and see some Horsefly people. You will be impressed!
