From Staff Reports 


MOUNTAIN INN, S.C.  — The Vinyl Junkies Band, a 10-piece band, will perform from 7 to 9:30 p.m. July 23 in the amphitheater at Commerce Park at 110 Depot St. in downtown Fountain Inn.

The group’s performance is part of Fountain Inn’s annual Sounds of Summer concert series. Those attending are urged to bring lawnchairs and/or blankets. Admission is free. 

On the Vinyl Junkies’ website, the band is billed as offering “a music list that spans 10 decades,” enabling it to “tailor the music to fit the vibe of your audience. Through inventive arrangements, danceable grooves and songs you have not heard other bands play, we will keep your audience involved and moving no matter the age.”

Also, the website describes the band as featuring “talented and professional musicians (who) come (from) a variety of backgrounds and have opened, performed or recorded with major label and international artists, such as Lady A, Darius Rucker and Mother’s Finest, as well as session work on film industry soundtracks, such as ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and ‘Men in Black’ — and stage theater around the U.S.”

Further, it states, “We play all your favorites — from Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 and Black-Eyed Peas to Chaka Khan, Santana and Stevie Wonder. Our premium brass section can rock the house on huge band hits like Chicago and Tower of Power.”

Two postings from listeners gave the band “5-star reviews.”

The first review, by Shane Steffin, said, “Couldn’t imagine a better way to spend the night. Can’t wait to see them again!  Excellent musicians! Great harmony and they know what songs keep the place humming, singing and especially dancing. I cannot say enough great things about their stage presence & connecting with the crowd. The music is well-rounded for everyone to enjoy. Love, love love The Vinyl Junkies!!”

The second review, by “Stephanie G.,” asserted, “The Vinyl Junkies definitely did not disappoint. They demonstrated the utmost in professionalism from beginning to end. The music was amazing and I was asked repeatedly during our event where I found this fantastic band.  Everyone loved them and had a blast dancing the night away.”
