Are You Feeling Irrashional? Check Out One of Charlotte’s Most Talented & Exciting Bands

This week at Charlotte Concert Guide, we’re thrilled to present ‘Irrashional’ as our Featured Charlotte Artist. This band has such an amazing and captivating sound, and we can’t wait to see them perform on stage again soon. In the meantime, join us in checking them out this Saturday (May 8th) for their livestream concert on Facebook Live.

Irrashional is a three-piece band, and the dynamic trio includes Patrick Dukes on guitars and vocals, Payton Velligan on bass, keys, and lead vocals, and Christian Sturt on drums and vocals. All three are highly skilled musicians in their own right, and as a group they are able to combine these talents to provide a sound that truly fills the room and captures the stage. They have named some of their artistic influences as the likes of Rush, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Triumph, Journey, Aerosmith, Yes, Kansas, and Van Halen, so it makes sense that they describe themselves as having “a genuine love for classic ’70s rock…and progressive rock.” You can hear it in their music, but you can really see it in their performances – they have fun and rock the stage, just like their idols taught them. Irrashional doesn’t play simple covers – they replicate some of the most ambitious and expert level songs with electrifying precision.

When they’re not on stage, they’re in the studio creating original music. Irrashional has released two certifiably awesome EP’s – Beyond (Jul 2019), and Closer Than You Think (Dec 2018) – and they won’t be stopping any time soon. Find their music on Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube, like them on Facebook, and follow them on Instagram to see them continue to evolve as one of the premier bands in the Queen City and beyond.
