Carolina Rex is built on a core of Heavy Blues and Guitar Legend Rock. Heavy Blues is aggressive guitar-driven blues and which includes Texas Blues, Chicago Blues, Mississippi Blues, and other blues genres. Guitarists like Gary Moore, Jeff Healey, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Gales, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd can all be considered Heavy Blues guitarists.
While blues and rock form our foundation, R&B, funk, soul, rockabilly, surf, Motown, fusion and original music might creep in to a Carolina Rex set depending on the venue. With a hugely varied repertoire, Carolina Rex always delivers a family-friendly show – and can change genres on a dime to play to the crowd.
As a four-piece, Carolina Rex focuses on aggressive blues and rock. When Jacqui joins the guys on vocals, a whole world of funk, r&b, and soul opens up and the bluesy four-piece morphs into a funky and danceable five-piece.
In addition to playing local clubs around Western North Carolina, Carolina Rex has performed at Bele Chere, the NC Mountain State Fair, Music on Main, Montford Music & Arts Festival, Carolina Mountain Ribfest, Biltmore Park Town Square Concerts in the Park, Lake Toxaway Music on the Mountain, Fletcher Park summer concert series, and the Harambee Festival.
