Spartanburg’s instrumentalist of the year for 8 years and running, Shane Pruitt is a staple of the music scene in Spartanburg, SC. Touring relentlessly with The Shane Pruitt Band, and performing as a feature artist with such acts as The Marshall Tucker Band, The Lee Boys, Flannel Church featuring Duane Trucks, Jeff Sipe, Ike Stubblefield, Yonrico Scott and many more, Shane Pruitt has earned his mark as THE up-and-coming guitarist in the southeast through undeniable hard work.
The Shane Pruitt Band has released two studio albums since their conception in 2005, which have received such honors as Blue Breaker of the Week on The House of Blues Radio Hour, #3 top Blues release of 2010 as voted by fans on 88.7 WNCW (behind Derek Trucks and Buddy Guy) and #2 Regional release, also voted by fans on 88.7 WNCW. SPB has been seen supporting such acts as Robert Cray, Robert Randolph, Johnny Winter, Gary Hoey and many many more, but their development of their own devoted following has been what brings them to this special occasion at The Hub-bub Showroom in Spartanburg, SC.
In what promises to be an amazing musical experience, SPB embarks upon a long-awaited live recording which they have planned specifically for their hometown of Spartanburg. SPB will be bringing the utmost in professionalism from our recording production company, Flying Eye Productions and Chris Mitchell, whose work has been seen in live releases from such acts as Keller Williams, Mickey Hart, Acoustic Syndicate and many more.
