Featuring The Phantom Playboys, Drayton & The Dreamboats, & 5J Barrow
Weaverville’s Music on Main is an open-air, one-night concert event on Main Street in Weaverville, featuring three powerful bands, each with a distinct style and sound. 5J Barrow, a dynamic folk/rock inspired duo originally from NY, will open the show, followed by Asheville’s Drayton & The Dreamboats, performing a well-crafted mix of swing tunes, latin numbers, and vocal ballads from the golden age of radio. Our headliner this year is The Phantom Playboys, playing Rock-a-billy and 50’s Rock-n-Roll with a splash of surf! The concert will take place in front of Town Hall (30 South Main Street, Weaverville, NC 28787) from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Saturday, June 22, 2019. The event is free and open to the public.
Music on Main is brought to the community by the Weaverville Business Association and the Music on Main Sponsors.
There will be food, drink, kids activities and booths. Local restaurants will be open all along Main Street. Traffic will be stopped between Merrimon Avenue and Brown Street.

The Phantom Playboys
The Phantom Playboys bring the sounds of Rock-a-billy and 50’s Rock-n-Roll with a splash of surf and flying jump-kick of raw energy! Imagine a zombified Elvis Presley joined The Squirrel Nut Zippers and Recruited Unknown Hinson to play guitar. Get out your dancin’ shoes, because when this five-piece brass and steel freight train comes barreling down the tracks from Wilmington, NC, there won’t be a still foot in the house!
