Sol Driven Train to Host Sol Slam 2017 at The Windjammer July 21-22
Sol Driven Train is set to host the 7th annual Sol Slam with appearances from Dangermuffin, The Howling Moon Pimps, and more!
The party will start at 9:30 pm Friday July 21st with Graham Whorley. Graham has been playing night after night in Charleston lately with with weekly shows at JohnKing downtown on Wednesdays. He will also play The Charleston Pour House deck prior to Zach Deputy on Saturday 6/17. Hosts Sol Driven Train will headline Friday night and play until The Windjammer turns their lights on.
Graham is known for his innovative looping techniques and soulful mastery of music. Check out Graham at the TedX Seminar a few years back:
Saturday, July 22, 2017 is a day filled with beach fun! Bring the kids for a day on the beach and live music on the deck of The Windjammer. Kids show, sandcastle building, and good times all day Saturday! Serenity and balance will be the first event of Saturday with Beach Yoga by Shelby Means. Shelby Means is from Nashville currently and has been to over 30 countries as both a music ambassador and yogi. She earned a GRAMMY nomination for her work on Della Mae’s 2013 album, This World Oft Can Be. She will be putting on Beach Yoga and hopefully dropping in to play her upright bass throughout the day with different groups.
Peck & Penn is a late addition to the festival. After last year’s debut single release “Savannah”, many fans have took to this American Roots Duo.

Following Peck & Penn, Sol Driven Train will come out for a lively kids jam during the day from 4:30 to 5:00. Local Honey, Hans Wenzel & The Eighty Sixers, and Jordan Igoe-Danielle Howle Duo will all perform hour long power sets from 5:15 to 8:30 outside before The Howling Moon Pimps take the last set on the outside stage on Saturday at 8:45. The last time I saw these guys they rocked The Royal American. Mister led the charge and got the crowd into it with a masterful performance on his keytar. Check out the video below:
Inside at The Windjammer, opening things up will be Dangermuffin! Returning from their first tour west of the Mississippi, Dangermuffin will be excited to be back on their home sand in the Lowcountry. After their release of Heritage, Dangermuffin has literally climbed to the top of the Jam Band charts and has recently released another music video for their song “Ol’ Fidel” about an an old man and the sea, here it is!
Sol Driven Train will close out their event starting at 11:30pm once again playing late into the night.
