Johnny Fly Co *Grand Opening Party*
Johnny Fly Co., the makers of eco-friendly and sustainable eyewear and leather bags, is excited to announce the opening of its first brick and mortar retail store in the NoDa Arts District of Charlotte. To celebrate its opening, Johnny Fly is throwing a launch party from 6:30 to 8 pm on July 19th followed by a free “Johnny Fly Co. Presents” concert at Neighborhood Theatre featuring local bands Millennial, Victoria Victoria, and Reaves.

The Johnny Fly Co. NoDa Store is located at 519 E. 36th Street, right next to the iconic Neighborhood Theatre. The location is part of a historic building and as such, the goal was to bring back the industrial feel of its original state while styling with the modern and clean feel that the brand represents. The shop, approximately 800 square feet, will include similar elements to those used in the products, such as leather and wood, but will also have refreshing and bright white walls, ceiling & piping.

“My wife and I were both born and raised in Charlotte, the brand was started here and we really just love this city,” said John Freeman, Founder of Johnny Fly Co.. “We chose Charlotte for our first store because it’s a place we believe in and want to grow with. We hope everyone will be able to join our family now that we’ll have a space to invite them to.”

Johnny Fly Co. celebrates not only the opening of its first retail space, but also 5 years in operation. The brand is run locally by owners John and Tara Freeman. The two came together in 2012 when Tara came into the picture to help with branding. The duo has since become a team and with the support of a strong creative family, that has come to grow the brand into what it is today. The brand goods that are truly original. Johnny Fly Co. works tirelessly to source the best materials from around the world to create sustainable wooden eyewear and chemical free leather bags by using recycled cotton, ethically grown wood, and chromium free leather.

“I think it will really be a special space that will fit right into our unique neighborhood here,” said Tara Freeman.

Millennial
Millennial
“It came naturally, I’ve never thought of anything else,”says lead singer, Rodney Eldridge in response to asking what draws him to music. The statement could not be more true for these three musicians from Charlotte, NC. Growing up in music they have brought their talents together to form, Millennial.

All three members; Rodney Eldridge, Logan Fincher and Jon Hussey, grew up participating in their churches’ music programs. Logan and Jon joined a band in high school which led them to winning a record label talent competition at Anaheim Stadium in California. Through the band’s manager, they were introduced to legendary musician and producer, Randy Jackson who invited them to record in his personal studio. Randy aided in setting up opportunities for Logan and Jon to work with great producers and songwriters such as Brian West and Brody Brown. Working with such talent fueled the fire within for their music. They both split from the band not long after and pursued their careers separately always with the hope of working together again in the future. Insert Rodney who admired them both growing up. “They’re both such great players it was intimidating to approach them with the idea of Millennial but I was so excited when they agreed to be a part of this project” says Eldridge.

With influences such as Michael Jackson, Coldplay, The Killers, U2, Radiohead and OneRepublic their infectious melodies and heavy drum beats echo those of their inspirations. Having started their pursuit of a music career in their early to late teens at the young ages of 22, 23 and 24 Millennial has worked tiredlessly at their crafts. Their energetic stage presence captivates and engages their audiences. When questioned about what would be the biggest compliment they could receive from their listeners Logan responds “One of our fans telling us we inspired them to do what they love is all we could ever ask for. We’re in this to grow with our fans, not separately. We want them to be as much of a part of ‘Millennial’ as we are.” Jon adds, “We bring a different sound than what’s out there right now. We have our own style and sound to bring to the table and fans are really relating to it. It’s humbling to be a part of it all.”

Currently, Millennial can be found touring the US East Coast.
