Gang of Thieves are pioneering a new breed of American Rock n Roll, injecting funky riffs, catchy melodies, and electric violin into unforgettable high energy performances. From Opera Houses to Music Halls, and Colleges to Preschools, the Gang has captivated audiences of all ages from around the globe. The band just pulled the curtains on their new EP “Totem”, recorded with Grammy winning engineer Michael Rosen (Santana, Rancid, Less than Jake). New singles “Raise Your Head” and “The Way I Feel” are now available to stream on Spotify, Itunes, and Youtube.
Erin & The Wildfire is a Charlottesville-based band that has been steadily carving out a reputation for themselves in recent years as one of the most captivating live acts to come out of Central Virginia since their formation in 2012. Fronted by powerhouse vocalist and Fincastle native Erin Lunsford, the band has been making waves throughout Virginia stirring up their unique sonic melting pot of rock, soul, funk, and blues. The group’s striking sound, goofy charm, and relentless work ethic has propelled them to some of the Commonwealth’s biggest stages, including a main stage spot at 2014’s Lockn Festival, three appearances at Floydfest 2015, and back-to-back performances at the 2014 and 2015 Festy Experience.
Oginalii is a Nashville-based rock band with a dense sound that’s impossible to pin down. One minute they’re psychedelically lulling you into a druggy head-bob, and the next they’re ripping sludge rock, making you want to throw a beer can and light a cigarette in a dimly lit basement.
