Strange Orchard | Memorial Day Live Music

Strange Orchard, formerly know as Loch & the Mystic Vans, are a four piece rock’n roll band dedicated to creating and performing new and original popular music. Led by vocalist, pianist, and songwriter Hugh McCulloch, the group formed amidst the doldrums of the coronavirus pandemic. During the long days of isolation the band began to take root in their shared influences: the Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, Elton John, Ray Charles, Queen, and more.

As the shroud of the pandemic lifted the Strange Orchard began performing at open mic nights and small venues in Greenville and were immediately embraced by enthusiastic audiences won over by the band‘s energy and timeless appeal. Like a new musical hybrid emerging from its chrysalis, Strange Orchard combines all the best elements of rock, soul, reggae & folk into a timeless blend that feels both familiar and fresh. Not surprisingly, their success is also anchored in a great deal of hard work and musical training. Not a rehash, a tribute, or a remake, but an honest and reverent continuation of the evergreen popular music of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Strange Orchard are a young band with time on their side and their star is rising! So see them now so you can say you knew them when!
