Our Friends

Durham NC is a hopping hotbed of all manner of live music acts. We are very happy to play with a whole gang of local bands. Go support these groups! And if you want to book them, tell them Huzzah sent you.

The Eno Islanders
The Eno Islanders are North Carolina's finest purveyors of early Hawaiian string band music. They play 20s and 30s swing and traditional Hawaiian music on period instruments with great respect for Polynesian culture.

Curtis Eller's American Circus
Curtis is a dangerous man. Banjoist. Has been bitten by dogs. Probably well-deserved. Go see him with your questions and concerns, and pardon his boarding house reach.

Bulltown Strutters
The Durham-based Bulltown Strutters bring the party and shift it into high gear with their raucous mix of old-school New Orleans classics and new-school New Orleans funk, powered by a massive horn section and an extra dose of Durham craziness.

Beauty Operators
What do you do when you're middle-aged, female, and you want to rock the blues? You become a BEAUTY OPERATOR. Decency lost a bet with the devil on the night the Beauty Operators were born.

Radar's Clowns of Sedation
This is the blues kids used to sneak away from their parents to hear. This is the blues that used to get banned from the radio. This is is the blues said the things that god folk didn’t have the guts to hear.

Juliana Finch
Juliana Finch “sounds the way a good bourbon tastes.” Everything from digital-era breakups to Celtic shapeshifters finds its way into her songs, which span the breadth of human experience in search of connection. Above all, she believes that everyone has a story to tell.
