The Seven Bends

The Seven Bends | 2 - 3:30 pm
The Seven Bends is a powerhouse rock band, but not plain and simple. When they get started there's an energy that's just infectious. They'll keep it pumping and changing all through the show. Blending Blues, Funk, R&B, reggae and a bit of every family of rock into a highly intoxicating cocktail of groove. The band is rooted in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, named for it's winding river. Good times always flow down The Seven Bends.


Parker Barrow Project

Parker Barrow Project | 12 - 1:30 pm
The Parker/Barrow Project is a Country Grunge Band based out of the City of Music – Nashville Tennessee. It is the latest project to be produced by Drummer/Song Writer Dylan Turner and features the powerfully raw vocal dominance of Lead Singer and Front Woman extraordinaire Megan Kane. This project is what Turner and Kane consider to be an essential rebranding of their previous endeavor together known as The 81 Run. The couples background in Rock, Blues, Soul and Funk make for an eclectic mix of raw emotion that makes their brand of music unmistakably and distinctively their own.
