Soup to Nuts Live!
Well into its second decade, WHQR's SOUP TO NUTS LIVE! has become one of the Cape Fear region's favorite, live-listening experiences, featuring a wide array of musical genres on its stage. The M.C. Erny Gallery has hosted Bluegrass, Rockabilly, Celtic, Country, Blues, Latin, Jazz, Folk, Indie, Pop, and Americana performances. And along the way, we've welcomed talented, hard-working musicians from all walks of life.Our Gallery is an acoustic room that demands attention. Adapting your 'unplugged' performance to our space may require some patience, but the reward is a truly intimate, interactive experience for both artist and listener. STNL!'s recording process reflects its commitment to high quality, ongoing success, and the hard work of its technical staff. Each performance is engineered, multitracked, and edited into a one-hour program for broadcast on an upcoming date. In addition, we forward and cross-promote the live event (and the later broadcast) across our website, on-air, social media, and related platforms.If you would like to be considered for a future STNL! session in front of a live audience at WHQR, we'd like to hear from you. Send an email of interest to stnl@whqr.org and include links to your music, biography, website, videos, social media, club & tour dates, etc. We look forward to making contact with you soon. Thank you!
