“Time hangs heavy on the vine/Let’s make wine,” Ryan Montbleau sings in the lulling, sensual verse that gives his group’s new album its title. Ryan Montbleau Band has been tending its own musical vineyard for a few years, on the patient cusp of a breakthrough. Their distinctive, long-fermenting blend of neo-folk, classic soul, and kick-out-the-jams Americana finally comes to full fruition in Heavy on the Vine. It’s an album that represents the product of — and further promise of — a very good year. “Fans and critics alike have embraced their sound, which has one foot planted in folk and Americana and the other planted in soul, which combine to create an original hybrid of music that feels fresh and retro at the same time.” – State of Mind March 2008 visit the website:http://ryanmontbleauband.com/

Always entertaining, this group of young area musicians brings together a tight fusion of Jazz, Soul, and Americana like you’ve never heard before! After playing locally for several years, both together and with various groups around Richmond, siblings Allyson and Curtis Mills, along with mandolin player Chris Hale, thought they might be on to something when they began blending the sounds of old time, bluegrass and folk with jazz and soul. The acoustic nature of the trio made for an eclectic sound. When saxophone player Samson Trinh began sitting in from time to time, the feeling of anticipation only grew. Drums (Andy Brockmann) and bass (AC&T frequent flyer Rusty Farmer) were then added to bring the band together to form the band that’s fast becoming a Richmond favorite

  The Whiskey Rebellion is a band out of Richmond, VA that plays a style best described as high-energy acoustic music. Over the past eight years, the award winning band has released two albums, filmed a tour documentary, produced a music video which was featured on Youtube, and played hundreds of shows traveling as far west as The Pacific Ocean. Original songwriting, skillful picking, and three part harmony are what you can expect from this band. Drawing on the diverse musical backgrounds of its members, The Whiskey Rebellion forms a modern style of Americana that displays the spontaneity of Bluegrass, the collectiveness of Jazz, and the urgency of Rock and Roll. The band covers a wide array of artist from Johnny Cash to Jimi Hendrix, from The Grateful Dead to Guns n’ Roses, and from The Beatles to The Band. But the approach is always deeply rooted in Americana. They have shared the stage with such acts as The Seldom Scene, The Sam Bush Band, Tony Rice, Larry Keel and Natural...
