2015 Band Line-up

Little Walter & The Convictions  |  5:30 - 6:30 pm

Little Walter & The Convictions

The passion and power of vintage 60's rock'n'roll ... Played with conviction.
Since they hit the scene the summer of 2011, Little Walter & the Convictions have been winning over local fans and critics alike with their high energy renditions of the greatest hits of the 60's rock music scene. Featuring classic 60's rock'n'roll from the Animals, the Beatles and the Byrds to Van Morrison, the Young Rascals, and the Zombies, seasoned with soul classics by Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Sam & Dave, Little Walter & the Convictions capture the magic of live rock'n'roll from the classic era of the 60's. Boasting powerful lead vocals, 3 part backup harmonies, and superb instrumental work, Little Walter & the Convictions deliver the passion and power of 60's rock... with conviction.


Everyday People  |  7:00 - 8:15 pm

Everyday People

Formed in 2001 by neighbors in the town of Port Republic, Everyday People takes its name from the Sly and the Family Stone tune of the same name. It is an apt name as not only does the 8 piece band play horn driven 60's and 70's soul, funk and R&B but all of the members are regular working folks living in the Shenandoah Valley. The band has changed and grown over the years while maintaining a focus on providing danceable classic tunes from the Blues Brothers, Aretha Franklin, Sly and the Family Stone and James Brown. Other material includes songs by Macy Gray, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith and more. So if you like to dance and enjoy music that puts a smile on your face, c'mon out and join the party!


Start Making Sense  |  8:45 - 10:00 pm |

Start Making Sense

If David Byrne is one of the geniuses of modern times, then Start Making Sense is a tribute to genius. The musicians in this 7-piece Talking Heads Tribute take pride in faithfully recreating the music of Talking Heads entire career. Together they bring much of the Heads unique live show to the stage, with front man Jon Braun as a spot-on David Byrne, giving you a "once in a lifetime" experience. Prepare yourself for a rockin', funkin', danceable celebration of the new-wave art punk you loved from the 80's!!!
