2016 Conniestock

Join the Converse Activities Board for a fun afternoon in our brand new Rainey Amphitheater! Conniestock is a student led initiative to showcase local art and music at Converse. There will be Food and Art Vendors Present, and our showcasing bands are Buck Shoals, Kristoff Waltz, and Noah Guthrie!

About Buck Shoals: Formed in 2015, “Buck Shoals” is a five piece band that defies categorization. All of the members met, and are currently enrolled in, the music program at USC Upstate, where they are learning to hone their craft while submersing themselves in musical diversity. During a Buck Shoals performance, the audience should expect both vocal and guitar harmonies, intricate rhythmic structuring, and improvisation. Buck Shoals strives to not be confined by genres or labels, which is made obvious in their original material.

About Kristoff Waltz: Based out of Nashville, TN. A five-piece “indiesurf” group specializing in the music of sunshine and friendship. Influences include The Beach Boys, Vampire Weekend, Mac Demarco, Paul Simon, and The Strokes.

About Noah Guthrie: Bluesy-pop singer/songwriter, Noah Guthrie, has been taking the U.S. by storm in 2014 to promote his debut album, Among the Wildest Things. Often known for his unique covers on youtube, Noah is excited to give fans a taste of his own music. Described as having a Pop/Americana sound with soul, 20 year old Noah Guthrie co-wrote the majority of the thirteen original songs on his debut album, Among The Wildest Things, along with his first single, Call Home. He may have been called the male version of Adele or a mix of John Legend and Dave Matthews in the past, but as his social media username shows, there is Only 1 Noah. Born and raised in South Carolina, Noah grew up in a home filled with music. Always singing around the house, Noah credits his dad for teaching him to learn his true voice and hone his gift. When he was fourteen, Noah received his first guitar and started writing songs. As a practiced musician on the bass, guitar, and trumpet by the time he was 13, everyone around him knew early on that he had an innate gift. One of his earliest written songs (at 16,) even made the album.
