Band Line Up

Band Line Up

Fall Festival 2019 Band Line Up

 

Red Dirt Revolution

Red Dirt Revolution | 4 - 5:30 pm
Dual driving guitar sound and pinpoint harmony vocals is what you can look forward to. Polished veterans of the Baltimore music scene came together to produce a Country band that plays all of your favorite country hits. You will always leave the venue wanting more.....Red Dirt Revolution will always bring the party. So you have to ask yourself.....Are You Seein’ RED ????

 

Strong Water

Strong Water | 2 - 3:30 pm
In 2013, Strong Water lead singer and guitarist Greg Brennan finished his American Literature course with something better than an A: the perfect name, borrowed from the Puritans, for his whiskey drinking, Americana/Folk band. Like a good shot of its namesake, Strong Water is smooth with a bite, garnering inspiration from artists such as The Head and the Heart, Mumford and Sons, and The Lone Bellow, yet remaining unapologetic and unafraid to break the conventions of its genre with a pulsing drum beat or a reggae breakdown.

Strong Water graduated from the term college band after releasing an EP in 2014 that received overwhelming support from Harrisonburg's thriving underground music community. In 2016, Strong Water responded with a 14 track self-titled album and began touring the Mid Atlantic,
gaining attention from larger venues and artists, all while holding down full-time jobs. Following the release of their single, Bearfoot, in Oct. 2017, the band took almost a year off the road as band members got married. Now, with Strong Water’s second LP, Beartfoot, released on Sept. 21st, 2018 the band is ready to head back out on the road.

 

Mojo Mothership

Mojo Mothership | 12 - 1:30 pm
Hailing from Winchester, Virginia USA, Mojo Mothership is dedicated to turning every venue into a rousing, jumping juke joint. Blues with authentic respect for its roots. From Chicago to Memphis, Kansas City and Muscle Shoals, to British Blues as well. These influences are the heart and essence of our very own -  "Funky Southern Fried" style.
