More About The Judy Chops: The Judy Chops are an indomitable force in the VA music scene, rocking audiences with original tunes, remixed covers, and mash ups since 2008. Averaging over 150 shows a year, the Chops are a high-energy Americana group who delight in wowing audiences throughout the Mid-Atlantic and beyond. Their many festival appearances and shows have included opening for acts like Lake Street Dive, The Black Lillies, Miss Tess & the Talkbacks, David Mayfield Parade, J.P. Harris & the Tough Choices, and Igor & Red Elvises have proven the Chops to be consummate performers.

More About The Sally Rose Band: The Sally Rose Band is “the most spirited mother/daughter fronted group you will ever encounter”, said Adam Gripp of Magazine 33. Sally Rose, the young and vibrant starlet writes original and eclectic songs while Catherine “Shootin’ Moon” Monnes sews in colorful notes and tasteful textures. They cover a vast range of genres from southern rock, to gypsy folk, to doo-wop inspired honky-tonk. Sally Rose (Nelson County, VA) sings most influenced by Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, Dianna Ross and Jenny Lewis. Catherine bows a fiddle, cello & spine-tingling electric violin. Holding down the beat is Benjamin Jensen on drums and Chris Dammann on a jazz style upright bass. “Sweet Pete” Stallings adds undeniable funk and classic rock undertones with his vintage Telecaster. Together they all sing hauntingly beautiful, blood harmonies that intertwine seamlessly. Sally Rose’s music twirls, it shines, it tip-toes & seduces, you’ll fall in love & get drunk off of it. It’ll melt your heart, and break you down…

More About The Mad Anthonys: Waynesboro, Virginia, Blue Ridge namesake of fearless Mad Anthony Wayne, is home and muse of three guys seamlessly assembled from varied paths: Jam, Punk, Brass, and Metal outfits. They Create sounds invitingly impulsive, lyrically vast, and suspensefully collaborative. All this creates live shows only to be described as pure madness.

More About Lord Nelson: Lord Nelson is a rock ‘n’ roll band from the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Embracing a driving southern rock identity, they perform original songs about the land and people they grew up around. Inspiration comes from a variety of artists and genres for this 5-piece resulting in a sound that features three-part vocal harmonies, soaring horn lines, and funk-laden rock beats.

Following the release of their debut EP, Lost in the Orchard (a collection of songs arranged in an orchard farmhouse), Lord Nelson has been working hard on their debut album, to be released this fall. Lord Nelson routinely plays around the region while touring from NYC to Atlanta.
