Wednesday, December 31st (NYE) – New Sweat

Growing up together in rural Pennsylvania, Garrett Cummings (guitar, vocals), Abe Kline (bass guitar, vocals), and Taylor Cummings (drums) were raised on home-grown music. After playing in high school rock bands and gigging the bars as acoustic acts through college, the trio came together as a three piece band in Raleigh, NC in the summer of 2007. Quentin “Q” Jones (congas, vocals) joined New Sweat in the summer of 2008, adding his smooth rhythm and energy to the band. The addition of Doug McCullough to the New Sweat roster in May 2012 filled out the band’s sound with keys and even more vocal firepower. New Sweat is also frequently accompanied by the talented Clay King on the saxophone and flute.

New Sweat has been gigging predominantly in the Raleigh area for the last 5 years, playing local bars and clubs. While you can catch New Sweat pretty much anywhere in the Triangle, they’ve honed in on the Fayetteville Street scene in downtown Raleigh as their home court, playing at the Oxford and the Big Easy on a regular basis. New Sweat’s sound is best described as melding funky, bluesy grooves into pop-rock. You’ll never see New Sweat perform without some toe-tapping, head bobbing, and dancing in the crowd.
