Music is always a fun part of PepperFest, so bring your lawn chairs or grab a spot on a straw bale and enjoy the spice of life!

Upbeat folk, bluegrass and indie rock hailing from the heart of North Carolina pairs best with Chatham County pepper dishes and cold beer…


8-Track Minds is NC’s finest 70’s dance party band! They play ‘70s gold for hip-shakin’ and slow dancin’.  Charismatic and velvet-voiced singer Sandie, sings beside veteran Triangle musicians who look the part, deliver spot-on renditions of a smorgasbord of pop hits from “Lady Marmalade” and “I Will Survive” to “American Pie” and “Afternoon Delight.” At this year’s Pepperfest, expect to get lost in the rock’n’roll and Drift Away!

Bringing together a boisterously blissful fusion of funk, soul, jazz, blues, and rock and roll, The Up and Up’s unique sound and catchy melodies will be good to your earhole!
