The Northeast Kingdom Chamber is the tri-county's largest and only fully staffed chamber, handling travel promotion, community/economic development, legislative/governmental relations, business networking and promotion of regional projects.
The chamber, based out of St. Johnsbury with about 300 members, is conveniently located at the Green Mountain Mall, across from JCPenney.
We believe the best businesses in the Northeast Kingdom are Northeast Kingdom Chamber members.

Local folk hero, Pete Sutherland, and his protege, Oliver Scanlon, met up when Oliver was a shy 4th grader, where the two wordlessly bonded over fiddle music. Several years later they began to play out, later joining forces with guitarist, Tristan Henderson, to form Pete's Posse, a hard-driving trio that spent half a dozen years touring nationally and internationally with its innovative blend of rocking contradance music, thoughtful and hilarious original songs, and soulful three-part acapella. The Posse spent the first 8 months of the largely gig-free pandemic recording a double album of new music before Tristan left to be with his family in Quebec. With the trio in hibernation, Pete and Oliver have revived their duo act, featuring a wide variety of instrumental combinations, informed by all the musical styles and sounds the trio is known for, and continuing to keep the Posse flame burning while adding new repertoire to the mix.

The Last King is not your average metal band, with powerful lyrics and technical instrumentation comes one of New England's most unique local acts. With a mission statement of keeping the underground community alive and bringing metalheads together, it's quite clear that TLK embraces its influence from many different genres including all styles of heavy music. Formed in the winter of 2014, TLK have been performing around the Northeast for over 6 years, have released several albums, and continue to push the boundaries of heavy music with each release. The band just dropped their highly anticipated third album entitled, "The New Age." The album dives deep into many concepts found in the present day world including corruption, greed, decision-making and survival, while incorporating a storyline about characters witnessing in its entirety on 9/18 for a special album release livestream/extended performance for fellow concertgoers! The band was supposed to embark on a Northeast-Midwest tour followed by a second leg East-coast run last year, however those plans were cancelled due to Covid. As soon as dates are eligible for rescheduling, those shows will hopefully be honored at a later date. Until then, TLK will be honored to give fans the opportunity to hear their entire new album in full on 9/18 with livestream capabilities to connect with even more fans across the nation!
