Join The Nude Party and Pearl Charles at Saturn!
Formed in a North Carolina dormitory in 2012, The Nude Party celebrates the clanging rock of the ’60s while blending modern elements that have made them beloved by fans of all ages.Originally an extended group of childhood friends and step-siblings who decided to start a band, The Nude Party began learning to play instruments at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. The band is comprised of lead vocalist/guitarist Patton Magee, vocalist/lead guitarist Shaun Couture, organist/pianist Don Merrill, bass player Alec Castillo, percussionist Austin Brose, and drummer Connor Mikita. Most members also sing backup. Soon after coming together, the sextet moved into a lake house and started a nightly ritual of jamming in the basement. It was at a regular gig as the house band at a certain Boone party locale that the group’s practice of performing in the buff earned them a local reputation as “the naked party band.” They adopted the moniker The Nude Party just in time to move onto bookings at local clubs and bars, where they had to perform clothed.
