Unaka Prong

Over the past six years, Unaka Prong has been sculpting a sonically unique identity. Hailing from Boone, NC, they borrow their name from the Cherokee word for the Great Smoky Mountains on the border of North Carolina and Tennessee. Unaka Prong offers a memorable musical experience that many fans have described as a melding between prog rock groups like King Crimson, jazz funk groups like Soulive, and psychedelic jam rock groups like Phish. Combining odd meters, funky grooves, and earnest lyricism, their latest release, ‘Salinity Now!’, reflects the group honing in their songwriting with each stylistic direction. Recently, Unaka Prong has been busy touring around the US performing at music festivals and clubs alike supporting notable acts including Tauk, Mungion, Col. Bruce Hampton, Moon Taxi, Toubab Krewe, and Dumpstaphunk.
