We have a wonderful lineup of entertainment throughout the day on three stages at the Ham & Yam Festival, including performances at 2:30 by Nantucket and at 7:00 by The Ultimate Eagles Tribute Band - On the Border!

​​Nantucket was formed in Jacksonville, NC in 1969 and signed with Epic Records in 1977.  In 1978, the band released its self-titled album, featuring the hit single, "Heartbreaker," and set out on an agressiv cross-country tour opening for acts such as KISS< Styx, Boston, AC/DC, Rush, Journey, and The Doobie Brothers.  Their first album sold around 200,000 copies and also made the Billboard charts. Throughout their forty year career, Nantucket has continued to release albums and perform.  Their most recent album, 2011's "You Need a Ride to Raleigh," was a return to their beach music roots, with the title track nominated for a CBMA Award in the best song category.  The group was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame on October 11, 2012.

On the Border - The Ultimate Eagles Tribute from Charlotte, NC continues to be one of the most exciting and authentic tribute bands in the country! Anointed "The Greatest EAGLES Tribute in the World" by AXSTV & Host Katie Daryl, they have been satisfying audiences all around the country at Festivals, Music Venues, Corporate and Private events.  They provide a family-friendly show guaranteed everyone has a great time!
