Tryon Beer Fest is proud to feature multiple musical acts this year!

Hustle Souls


Hustle Souls is an Asheville, NC based soul band who blend dust-covered-vinyl nostalgia with modern sensibility; recently named one of “Music Connections” Hot 100 Live Unsigned Artists & Bands. Driven by a lust for songwriting, the band’s fervid live performance is heightened by undeniable instrumental prowess and 3 part vocal harmony. With relentless touring, sold out shows and major festival appearances the band has earned a reputation as one of the East Coast’s most promising acts.

“generation-jumping mashup of new school second line funk with old school vintage soul.” – American Blues Scene

“Hot 100 Live Unsigned Artists and Bands of 2020” – Music Connection Magazine

“Their blend of jazz, pop, and rock is inventive and captivating. Their lines are on point and their sound is tight, creating space for Billy Litz’s rabbit hole musicianship. And you can f***ing dance to it. Friday night was a revelation, I’m already looking forward to the next one.” – Caleb Calhoun
