Big Daddy Love @ Clementine
Aug 29 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Big Daddy LoveBig Daddy Love is a five-piece band with a unique and natural blend of rock, roots and grass that they call ‘Appalachian Rock’. Above the mix, the lead vocals and acoustic guitar accompaniment of their principal songwriter, Scott Moss, command the listener’s attention and call for the harmonies that arise in response. Twin leads of Stratocaster riffs and soaring Allman-esque slide guitar on the one hand, and 5-string Scruggs / Fleck style banjo on the other– like a typical Southern rock line-up, just replacing the second guitar with the banjo– punctuate and emphasize what Moss delivers. These contrasting voices are anchored by a rhythm section that is equally at home in a groove or driving the bus with country, swing, funk or straight ahead rock. Big Daddy Love’s high-energy performances, fueled by this combination of fiery vocals, striking instrumental dynamics that range from bombastic assaults to soothing grooves, have garnered them a strong, passionate following throughout their home region.

Philosophunk Album Release Show, Trongone Band @ Clementine
Aug 30 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

PhilosophunkHailing from the mountain town of Harrisonburg, Virginia, Philosophunk is a dynamic phunk/jam combo with elements of rock, jazz, and math-inspired melodies. This wide array of musical identities is brought about by each of its members distinct music backgrounds—all four of its members have been musically involved since they were kids, each of them following unique musical pathways. Within moments of their first jam session, Cameron (bass), Clifford (guitar), Nick (drums), and Alex (guitar, vocals) were instantly fast friends, and the positive energy exuded by each of its members at practice and songwriting sessions combined with their variety of tastes and abilities to form Philosophunk. Ever since that fateful day, the band’s compositions and synergy have carried them forward more quickly than they ever expected, and the members of Philosophunk are constantly grateful for the friends and opportunities that have helped them to create an unforgettable experience that’s reborn at every show. Come out and celebrate their first-ever album, “Live from the Space Whale” for an unforgettable night full of grooving, dancing, and memories!

Shack Band @ Clementine
Sep 11 @ 9:00 pm – 11:45 pm

Shack BandWhat originally started as an organic, impromptu and free-flowing collection of musicians casually performing in the renovated remains of a dilapidated “shack” in Blacksburg, VA has morphed into what is now The Shack Band. Since 2010, things have changed. The band relocated from Blacksburg to Richmond, VA. A true lineup was established, with four members signing on. The songwriting abilities and sensibilities matured and improved. At the start of 2013, the quartet became a quintet with the addition of a horn player adding more complex arrangements and texture to the band’s already well-established sound. But, the one thing that never wavered was The Shack Band’s intent to wow new crowds with their off-the-cuff, high-energy live shows melding funky rock ‘n’ roll and soaring harmonies with a strong emphasis on song-writing.
In 2012 alone, The Shack Band played 120 + shows up and down the East Coast and as far west as Chicago, while performing alongside a number of national touring acts, including: moe., Moon Taxi, The Machine, Perpetual Groove, The Pimps of Joytime, The Heavy Pets, Assembly of Dust, Everyone Orchestra and Dangermuffin among others. Thanks to their raw, infectious live shows and incessant touring, The Shack Band have seen, felt, and heard the effects of their budding reputation and burgeoning fan base. In February of 2012, they released their first EP, Born & Raised, to a sold-out crowd in their hometown of Richmond, VA. For 2013, the goals are simple yet ambitious: hit the rarified level of 200+ live shows, release their first full-length album, and continue to hone their craft while writing and learning new material.

HmfO (Hall and Oates Tribute) @ Clementine
Sep 19 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm

From the folks who brought you Start Making Sense comes the next chapter in their book of rewrites, HmfO.

Hall and Oates are the #1 selling duo of all time. There is no one better than fellow Keystone Staters, HmfO, to bring their music back to the masses. Expect both accurate representations of the band’s material as well as deep explorations into the far reaches of space and back. Possibly a mustache or two. Expect perfection.

Start Making Sense (Talking Heads Tribute) and Mystery Set Tribute @ Clementine
Sep 20 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Start Making Sense are selling out rooms throughout the eastern half of the United States. This band is a huge hit, as the Talking Heads are never on tour and the band’s amazing dedication to the music and fun loving attitude has proven to be a favorite at clubs and festivals.
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, including songs Talking Heads never performed live! Together they bring much of the Heads unique live show to the stage, with front man Jon Braun as a spot-on David Byrne, some have said this is the closest thing you’ll get to seeing Talking Heads again.

The Magic Beans @ Clementine
Sep 25 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Magic BeansSince the creation of the band just two years ago, The Magic Beans have established themselves as one of the most prominent and original acts in the perpetually flooded Colorado music scene and beyond. The group had made a name for themselves with a deep cannon of original songs, virtuosic playing, and fusing genres while connecting with their fan base in a way that is not typical with other bands. Drawing from a wide range of influences, The Beans style can be described as natural and all encompassing, encapsulating the diverse interests of each musician in the band and today’s music lovers into one package. The Magic Beans are well known for going between folk, funk, rock and electronica in a single composition, original setlists each night, and with the added element of improvisation, there is always something special that can happen at every show. The group uses no pre-recorded tracks or samples in favor of a more traditional approach to music; original songwriting, diverse instrumentation, and continually pushing the musical envelope are what set the Magic Beans apart. Seamlessly combining acoustic roots music and traditional instruments with modern technology and electric dance music, the Magic Beans are unique as their place of origin, the Colorado Rockies.

Chamomile and Whiskey, Jess Novak and Brian Golden
Sep 26 @ 10:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Chamomile and WhiskeyIn just two years, Chamomile and Whiskey has become one of the hottest bands in central Virginia. They have released two albums with the new label County Wide Records, and played hundreds of shows on the east coast. Much of their success can be attributed to their passionate and energetic live performance. A Chamomile and Whiskey show is a rowdy affair, often sending the sounds of whiskey being spilled, boots stomping, and fans howling towards the Blue Ridge Mountains. The strong connection with the audience has given them a number of great opportunities… including shows with Railroad Earth, Rusted Root, J Roddy Walston, The Last Bison, and many shared bills with fellow Charlottesville natives the Hackensaw Boys.
May 24th, 2013 was the release date for “Wandering Boots,” the band’s debut full- length album. From top to bottom the collection of songs is a testament to the band’s eclectic nature. From the raucous gypsy title track “Wandering Boots.. to the smooth country-fied “Impressions”… to the high-tempo Irish tune “Dirty Sea,” the album’s genre bends with each track. Marie Borgman’s versatile fiddle playing is a key component to the group’s adaptability… while Irish and Old-Time seem her forte, gypsy and classical musings are heard through out the album. The contrast between Koda Kerl and Ryan Lavin’s songwriting is another great blend of sounds. Kerl, who penned six of the nine numbers, has a smooth and soulful voice, from the poignant “Long Day” to the pirate-like “Second Lullaby.” Lavin (a native of Galway, Ireland) brings passionate vocals to his tunes, as well his own brand of banjo playing… elevating the energy with every note. The rhythm pulsates with the thump of hungry musicians, a bottle of whiskey and a purpose.
While Chamomile and Whiskey seems to have all the talent and songwriting to make a successful project… they also possess something more. An infectious energy sweeps across the stage when they perform, the love they share for each other and the music quickly and emphatically reaches the audience. As the band continues to write, and tour more extensively, we all look forward to the next phase for these ambassadors of blue-ridge rock.
