Green Lemon 2005 Tour Comes to North Carolina

Colorado’s Green Lemon band will visit North Carolina for four shows during April, as they continue their national tour. Green Lemon kicked off its 2005 tour in January juiced about recent national recognition and they’ve already racked up road warrior status having played to crowds in Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina.

The Green Lemon band regularly tours across the country and their fan base is growing rapidly from coast to coast. Recently, they were honored by being named the “New Home Grown Band of the Year” by Leeway’s Home Grown Music Network and being listed as “One of the Top Bands to See Live in 2005” by They were just named the “New Groove of the Month” for March 2005 by and Hapi Skratch Records of Loveland, CO named them the “Best Independent Artist of 2004.”

In 2001, the band packed up their gear and moved from Oklahoma to Ft. Collins and they haven’t looked back since. With a loyal following of Lemonheads, they continue to fill venues across the country and expand their reputation as rising stars.

The Green Lemon bus will roll into North Carolina for shows in Raleigh, Elon, Asheville and Wilmington before moving on with a tour leg that will take them through the southlands and back to the Midwest. Catch the Lemons at one of these shows and see what Hittin’ The Note Magazine says “happens when five guys from Oklahoma are pinned down in a collision of futuristic electronic music and the historic roots of dub reggae.”

When South Carolina’s MetroBeat Magazine caught up with this relentlessly touring group in January, they found that, “Green Lemon is hardly your typical jam band. Transcending the usual neo-hippie mix of Grateful Dead, Phish and String Cheese Incident-inspired improvisation, the Colorado-based band delivers a wildly eclectic sound that broadly expands the territory a jam band can cover without sacrificing its core.”

On April 2, Green Lemon will appear at The Pour House Music Hall in Charleston along with SeepeopleS to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Leeway’s Home Grown Music Network. The Pour House Music Hall is located at 224 S. Blount Street, 919-821-1120.

The band will rock Elon, one of their favorite college towns on April 6. The Elon show will be at The Lighthouse, 111 N. Holt Street, 336-584-7481. On April 7, Green Lemon will appear at The Emerald Lounge in Asheville. The Emerald Lounge is located at 112 N. Lexington Avenue, 828-232-4372. And, on April 11 the Lemons will juice it up at Marrz Theatre in Wilmington which is located at 15 S. Front Street, 910-342-0505.
