This years NC State fair had focus on homegrown North Carolina music. Deep South Entertainment booked the main Dorton arena stage and a couple of other stages with over 80 bands featuring the best of multiple genres of music. The Nantucket band is an iconic band that was one of the pioneers of the NC rock scene. The final evening of the fair was topped off with a Sidewinder/Nantucket show. These were/are two of my favorite bands for over 30 years back to the days of my DJ work at small rock club in Rocky Mount, NC in the early 1980s.
