Whiskey Pines
12:30pm - 2:00pm

Whiskey Pines is collection of top tier acoustic musicians and the brainchild of Tim Stelmat. The band was created in 2012 after Tim and Bobby left a mildly successful country trio and began playing music full-time. Whiskey Pine’s sound can best be described as acoustic rock with a touch of folk and classic rock guitar licks. Tim’s perfect cadence and jazzy slap strumming technique create a groove anyone can move to. Bobby’s searing harmonica riffs and acoustic leads round off the tone sonically. There is a little something for everyone to enjoy. We cover music from the 60’s to today with our own acoustic spin, including several medleys to keep the energy moving! Currently, Whiskey Pines is playing upwards of 150 shows per year at clubs, private parties, restaurants, bars, theme parks, festivals, and special events all over the state of NC.
