MUSIC: Orange Krush / by Carrie Turner

Music doesn’t lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
— Jimi Hendrix

When we first moved to Asheville almost 10 years ago, my husband had a job playing piano at a church for $50 a week. We were young and in love, with no children and only ourselves and our three pets to feed and shelter. We somehow made it work, but it was a time in my life when I questioned if it was possible to make a living as a professional musician. 

Thankfully, with years of hard work and dedication, and by landing one of the best regular band jobs in this town, Brian is very much a professional musician. He's been playing with the wedding and party band Orange Krush for 9 years now. Together they've played hundreds of weddings across the southeast, in as many different venues. They are one of the best group of musicians you can ever hope to meet, and they put on a great show. Lucky for us, they're also like a family. 

If you're looking for a great, professional, high-energy band that will get everyone at your wedding out on the dance floor, look no further than Orange Krush. They are so fantastic, and I'm not just saying that because they're family to me. I mean it! More info at
