2020 Musical Lineup

4/24 – Koda & Friends
Koda and Friends, members of Chamomile and Whiskey which formed in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in the late winter of 2011. Shades of rock, Americana, Irish, gypsy, and old-time sounds…all played with a punk rock ferocity. chamomileandwhiskey.com

5/1 – FarAway (Duo)
FarAway is a successful Virginia area based band playing a wide variety of music on both the cover song side and original side. Their wide range of covers, from classic rock and ’90s alternative rock hits, to singer/songwriters and folk music, have made them one of the most demanded male/female duos in the Charlottesville, Richmond, and Washington, DC areas. farawaysongs.com

5/8 – SuperUnknown
Charlottesville’s best 90s cover band isn’t so unknown anymore. Veteran musicians from the area, Cory Teitelbaum, Rob Richmond, Morgan Moran, Jamie Booth and Bryce Fletcher consistently rock rooms with all the alt-rock hits and deep tracks from the last decade of the 20th century. From Smashing Pumpkins to Pearl Jam, Soundgarden to Alice in Chains, and Nirvana to Green Day, Superunknown presents authentic renditions of your favorite decade of rock. Like your iPod, only louder!

5/15 – Adar (Duo)
Adar Seligman-McComas’s supremely original music and lyrics create a world that is deeply personal, yet belongs to all of us. Based out of Charlottesville, VA, Adar has electrified audiences with charismatic performances that seem to have been channeled, rather than composed. Not quite Soul, not simply R&B, not straight-up Jazz, ADAR blends and transcends each genre, delivering a sound that is uniquely their own. adarband.com

5/22 – Adrian Duke (Trio)
Adrian Duke is a piano player/singer/songwriter in the New Orleans musical tradition of Professor Longhair, James Booker & Dr. John. Add to that a voice that is infused with a startling imprint of the early Atlantic sides of Ray Charles. What you get just begins to describe what’s in Duke’s bag as a performer and composer. Where New Orleans blues, classic soul, and Americana collide is where he lives. adrianduke.com

5/29 – East High Cellar
With a sound contrived in a basement in Charlottesville VA, East High Cellar has combined influences of classic and modern rock with blues and folk to develop a sound best described as “bonfire rock”. The live show is dynamic, high-energy and inspiring. facebook.com/easthighcellar

6/5 – Sharif (Trio)
Sharif—who is currently earning his Masters at the Berklee College of Music—has made quite a name for himself on the touring front as well, vacillating from playing intimate solo acoustic shows of his original material to belting out cover tunes (from Rihanna’s “Disturbia” to Maroon 5’s “Won’t Go Home Without You” to Beastie Boys “Girls”) at biker bars to playing one of his favorite genres of music, oldies, at retirement centers (because he wants to, not because he has to) to corporate gigs for Gap and Amstel Light to opening for the likes of Jason Mraz, Kenny Loggins, Rhett Miller, Rusted Root, and Blake Shelton. sharifmusic.com

6/12 – Delta Junction
Delta Junction hails from Crozet, VA. With a solid foundation in stripped-down blues from the Mississippi delta, Delta Junction breathes new life into traditional arrangements, adding funk, soul, and rock in equal measure. Daniel’s compelling vocals and hard-driving guitar are enhanced by Jon’s gritty, wailing harmonica licks that force you to pay attention. Holding it all together on the upright bass is Travis, providing a powerful groove backbone that you can’t help but dance to. Altogether this acoustic blues trio cooks up funky tunes that are sure to bring you to your feet. Their live show is not to be missed! deltajunctionband.com

6/19 – The Unsuitables
The Unsuitables Band is a rockin’ and rollin’ event band based out of Orange, Virginia. This fun, high-energy group of guys focus on playing music that will have you up on your feet, dancing and singing along. Guaranteed to provide toe-tappin’ musical stylings of your favorite Motown, Funk and Blues tunes! theunsuitablesband.net

6/26 – Koda & Friends
Shades of rock, Americana, Irish, gypsy, and old-time sounds… all played with a punk rock ferocity. chamomileandwhiskey.com

7/3 – Mark Nicholson & the Distance
Mark Nicholson and The Distance is a rock and roll band based out of  Roanoke, Virginia. With a focus on well-crafted songs mixed with improvisation, the band strives to bring a passionate new take on blues-based rock and roll with every performance. marknicholsonandthedistance.com

7/10 – Marshall Artz
Marshall Artz is a guitar duo performing a distinctive original blend of Americana, Indie Folk and Blues forged together in a powerful acoustic style. The duo features the combined talents of Brad Marshall on lead, rhythm, and slide guitar and Kevin Artz on rhythm and fingerstyle guitar, vocals and harmonica. Brad’s background in rock and blues meets with Kevin’s background in folk, folk-rock and bluegrass to create an original and dynamic acoustic sound. Their performances blend two guitars into a rhythmic and melodic mix that suggests a full band rather than just two guitars. marshallartz.net/home

7/17 – Jon Spear Band
The Jon Spear Band can be adventurous in its musical tastes but never strays very far from its blues roots which provide the foundation for the band’s music. Nominated by Blues Blast Magazine for the prestigious best Live Blues Recording of 2016 award, all three of the Jon Spear Band’s CDs have charted in the US, France, UK, Spain, and Australia and have been listed on the annual top 100 Roots Music Report Contemporary Blues Chart for the past three consecutive years. The band has opened for nationally touring acts including Debbie Davies, Delbert McClinton, Anson Funderburgh, the Iguanas, the Chris Duarte Group, Memphis Gold, and more, and competed in the 31st and 33rd International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. jonspearband.com

7/24 – Paulo Franco & the Freightliners
Paulo’s songs are steeped in storytelling, often drawing from his own life and those around him. The sound is a seamless blend of the myriad of influences that have shaped both his everyday life and his musical tastes. Listeners will find glimpses of the eclectic style of Los Lobos, Robert Earl Keen’s storytelling, John Prine’s wit, The Stones’ rock n roll heart, and the fluidity of The Grateful Dead often times infused with the rhythms of traditional Latin and Colombian music. He has recently included original Spanish songs into his songwriting, bringing a depth and a love of two cultures seldom seen during the same show or album. Paulo switches his voice from country twang, to rock anthem, to Spanish troubadour with ease. His vocals are so authentically Spanish that it’s easy to forget you just heard him effortlessly sing a country tune in English. peflmusic.com
