Tonight’s Musician: Waking April

Driven by hip-hop-inspired grooves, musical and romantic synth-pop duo Waking April take their musical cues from the likes of Phantogram, Chvrches and Broods while creating something distinct and fresh. Waking April is a Raleigh-based electro-pop duo, formed by married couple Bethany and Alex McKee. They began writing music together in college, playing shows wherever they could find the opportunity. Undaunted by tour and show cancellations in 2020, Bethany and Alex decided to make the best of their time and managed to write and release new songs during the unexpected performance hiatus. As things become safe, the duo is starting to tour again. Stay tuned for new releases for 2021!

Our musical performances happen rain or shine under our covered Pavilion on the BeatBox stage. In the event of extreme weather, such as flooding, ice or lightning, performances will be canceled. Follow us on Instagram for updates on time changes or cancelations.
