Feb 3, 2017 |  0 comments

Announcing our monthly Global Sounds Series, featuring local, national and international acts, live on stage at The Mainline!   Kicking off this delightful series are the Afro-Zen Allstars: Led by a driving horn section, the Afro-Zen Allstars present a powerful instrumental collection that evokes irresistible rhythms and dance-able grooves. From Ethiopia’s “Golden Age” of music (popularized by the Ethiopiques Series and groups such as Debo Band) to wedding music of Rajasthan or Zimbabwe’s Chimurenga music of “revolutionary struggle,” Afro-Zen honors a heritage of positive music through the modern arrangements of its bandleader, George M. Lowe. As a lifelong student of international music, Lowe takes the listener to a place where the sound is both rare yet familiar. Afro-Zen Allstars features the powerhouse lineup of Hector “Coco” Barez, percussion; Brian Cruse, Bass; John Lilley, Alto and Tenor Sax; George M. Lowe, Guitar; Scott Milstead, Drums; Chris...

The Broken Commandments & The South Bound Hounds

The Broken Commandments are a Virginia grown rock band creating original music. The members of the band desire to sound like no one else while paying respect to the historical influences of rock music from the 1960’s to today. Their sound is achieved through pounding rhythms, melodic vocals and a positive, do it yourself attitude. The style they have developed takes full advantage of the sound of two guitars, a solid bass line and a drum beat that can manage occasionally strange uses of musical timing, while leaving plenty of room for the lead vocals that provide melody to the sometimes thought provoking lyrics written by multiple members of the band.

As classic as cast iron and as space-age as a flying car, The Plate Scrapers are serving up their own flavor of bluegrass by way of a winding wormhole of folk, jazz, and heavy metal dimensions. Grab yourself a thick slice of nostalgia, slap on a side of mind-bending originality, and top it off with some piping-hot pickin’, letting this hungry bunch take you out of this atmosphere!
