Local band prepares mainstream release

Aug. 08, 2008 @ 12:02 AM

SCOTT DEPOT -- Another musical sensation is ready to explode out of Putnam County.

Fletcher's Grove -- a five-man jam band based in Hurricane that has been performing at venues up and down the Huntington-Charleston corridor -- will release its first mainstream CD under Brick & Stone Records, the Nashville music label founded by Scott Depot's Redding Brothers.

"We've done several performances with the Redding Brothers in the past and have been good friends for a while now," said Ryan Krofcheck, lead vocalist for Fletcher's Grove. "They suggested this opportunity might be good for us, too, and this is what we have always wanted to do, so we are all pretty happy about it."

Fletcher's Grove is made up of Krofcheck on acoustic guitar and lead vocals; Matt Marion on percussion and back-up vocals; Wes Hager on lead guitar; Taylor Bratt on bass and Adam Green on drums.

Can't wait for their fall release? You can catch them locally at Creekside Cafe this Saturday, Aug. 9, and at Sleepy Hollow next Saturday, Aug. 16.
