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.

“I wonder if ‘for a good time call The Hot Seats’ is written on every bathroom wall in Richmond, Virginia . . . The band has taken its raw talent and honed and crafted it precisely to sound easy and effortless.” –  Rochester City Paper   The Hot Seats play stringband music with simple intentions: to keep the role of traditional musician as entertainer and commentator alive and kicking.  Homer and Jethro, The Skillet Likkers, George Formby, Harry Reser, Woodie Guthrie, Gus Cannon, Phil Ochs, Tommy Jarrell, Arthur Smith, Uncle Dave Macon, Frank Zappa – these are pools from which The Hot Seats draw.  Their original music is simultaneously hard to classify and instantly identifiable, combining the virtuosic soloing and tightness of bluegrass, the band-driven rhythm of old time, the jerky bounce of ragtime, and the swagger of good old rock and roll.  Add some eastern melodies, a few modernist ideals, and an uncanny feel for comic timing, and you begin to approach...
