Stories Of The Upstate™ launches each of our episodes directly on GreatUpstate.com, but we are also a podcast on both iTunes and Stitcher because our focus is on being a great choice for people on their smartphone, computer or other smart device when it comes to exclusive passionate content, local events, coupons and connecting locally @ GreatUpstate.com.

Once A Month We Also Launch A Free Concert For You – The Downtown Jam™


Each month between 3 and 6 local singer-songwriters sneak into a secret location in downtown Greenville.  They bring their guitars, their stories and their original songs and play an entire concert just for you.  We record it all and give it to our subscribers to Stories Of The Upstate™ for free.   We call it The Downtown Jam™ and it always features unique local artists from Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson and other Upstate South Carolina counties on the second Wednesday of each month.
