Our Band and Music
Appalachian Rock is a special brew of Southern Rock that is overflowing with the musical flavors that saturate the hills of Eastern Tennessee, Western North Carolina, South Western Virginia and the surrounding areas. We feel this term is the best description of the music produced by 7 Mile Mushroom. The band was formed by a group of friends who were all veteran musicians from the local club scene. First finding a common love for the blues as a catalyst for bringing the band together the band began to explore song writing and soon found a wealth of influences and musical styles materializing in their work. Listen and you will hear a bit of New Orleans, a touch of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, a dash of the southern rock of the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida that epitomized the 70's classic rock sound, a chunk of the Delta and a bit of Chicago via Mississippi flavor, all mixed together with the natural sounds of their Appalachian Environment. We hope you like it and to see you at your favorite music venue.
