2023 Band Line Up

Big City Band

Big City Band | 4 - 5:30 pm
The Big City Band is a 6-piece rockin’ country band formed in 2017. Their unique sound features gritty lead vocals fused with the smooth sound of family harmonies. Growing up the band was inspired by the traditional country music sounds of Merle Haggard and southern rock sounds of Lynyrd Skynyrd. Their hometown of Grottoes, Virginia is a small town nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains thus the name, “The Big City Band”. This group has built quite a following of loyal fans known as the ‘BCB Strangers’ and has become a premiere party band in the state of Virginia. A Big City Band show features an up tempo mix from all genres of music along with original tunes that will make you dance the night away. The band is currently working to complete their debut EP album set to be released later this summer. The Big City Band is currently accepting bookings and are ready to be the life of your next party. BCB Baby!


Starting Early | 2 - 3:30 pm

Starting Early is a indie rock trio that moonlight as an rock cover band. They play everything from classic rock to 90-2000s music and bring hip music and tasteful revelry to the DMV music scene. Starting Early is brothers Rory and Declan O'Donnell (vocals, guitars, and bass) with Paul Mosimann (drums). Filed under the nebulous genre of indie-rock, Starting Early has a sound that is unpretentiously fresh. Having cut their teeth by singing Beatle harmonies and instrumentally recreating the sounds of Cream and Led Zeppelin, the band injects a vintage vibe into their exciting and plucky songwriting. The Starting Early EP was released early in 2022 and is the band’s first major release.


The Hungry Hard Luck Heroes

The Hungry Hard Luck Heroes | 12 - 1:30 pm
Playing a tribute to Jimmy Buffett
The band was formed by lead singer and frontman Dave McKenney in 2021 as a way to pay tribute to the music and lifestyle of Jimmy Buffett. With every member having over 20 years of experience performing and a true love of music, their talent and passion is evident in every song.

There have been multiple reports of people trying to pose as hosts or vendor hosts of festivals held at Massanutten Resort claiming there are additional spaces available.
