Fighting night in and night out singing, shouting, dancing, shaking, expressing what unifies you as a human and relating this to those who seek it; this is rock n’ roll. Virginia-based rock band The Barons embody this notion in everything they represent. Fresh into their twenties, frontman Peyton Alley, lead guitarist Josiah Ragland, drummer Ryan Boone, and bassist Kirtland Gray make up The Barons. The band has built a solid following since its start in 2013 going on three independent US East Coast tours mainly drawing in the college crowds and headlined major 20,000+ crowd festivals throughout their home state. Towards the tail end of Spring 2015, the band released two singles as a Digital 45, ‘Hands On’ and ‘Crown’ with Sony producer Micah Wilshire out of Nashville, TN. ‘Hands On’ became the band’s first song on the radio bringing much playtime through college radio and XL102 Richmond then spread throughout their home state. 2016 proved to be another...

Come join us for an evening of Etta James classics performed by Jive45! Jive45 has been entertaining audiences large and small since 2008. With its distinctive blend of old-school soul and timeless blues, the six-piece band is a welcome addition to the Richmond music scene. Vocalist Jennifer Dodge leads the way with her talent and energy, whether she’s belting out a scorching blues number, interpreting a tender ballad with sensitivity and depth, or dishing out a sassy soul classic with spunk and verve. Blending old and new, she channels the vitality of Etta James and Aretha Franklin and evokes the nuanced dynamism of Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi. Lead guitarist Josh Lief is as comfortable unleashing an incendiary blues solo as he is delivering a tasty soul riff. Veteran saxophonist Harris Levy just might be Jive45’s secret weapon, as he effortlessly finds the perfect spots for his spot-on licks and transforms solos into a playground for his prodigious improvisational talent....

Equal parts songwriter and storyteller, Buffalo’s Davey O. has been recognized on a national level for his past two CD releases with multiple honors among the “best of“ lists of several Folk & Roots radio stations, and as a 2013 New Folk Finalist at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival. Davey has also earned the respect of his peers for his incredible work ethic, performing between 120 – 140 dates per year, and for his constant dedication to the art of song craft. With a journalist’s eye for detail and poet’s ear for the well-turned observation, Davey O. finds the universal in the particular, turning day-to-day minutiae into dusty paeans to the indomitability of the human spirit.  With each tale another slice of life examined. Davey is looking to build on the success of his previous release “No Passengers,” (2014 Top 25 of 100 albums Roots Music Report, Best of 2014 – WHRW, WAMC, The Sundilla Radio Hour, WMSC, Radio Crystal Blue, WVPE ) with the...
