C2 & The Brothers Reed

Abingdon, VA 24210 United States

Event Date:
Thursday, August 3, 2017 - 6:30 to 8:00pm

Hailing from the bluegrass state with a sound as unique and smooth as the region's' beloved bourbon, C2 & The Brothers Reed performs all-Kentucky music from their studio debut album, Weigh Station Tour, with songs that explores gritty rock and roll while referencing 60's and 70's-era soul music, embracing a sound that is nearly lost but deeply needed in the surge of modern sound and technology. Their songs call for revolution and change while simultaneously offering an escape from the grind.The band – singer/bassist Cameron Clark, guitarist Kelly Reed, drummer Kody Reed, and keyboardist James Weishar – hide behind nothing on the record, with a 'realness' that has been constantly attributed to their live performance.

Tickets $5 cash only at the door. Children 12 and under free.

Abingdon Market Pavilion, Remsburg Drive
Abingdon, VA 24210 United States

Event Date
Thursday, August 3, 2017 - 8:30pm to 10:30pm

Virginia Ground plays such a unique style of music, they created their own genre to describe it: Appalachiaphonic. Jamen Denton and his fountainesque songwriting combined with an ensemble of inventive musicians collaborate to create a sound at once electrically novel yet hauntingly familiar. With Justin Denton on drums, Derrick Boardwine on the five-string bass, Blake Collins on mandolin, and electric guitar, Will Outlaw on trombone, Ben Smith on harmonica, Jon McGlocklin on harmony vocals, and Jamen on acoustic guitar and lead vocals, this group marries sounds from blues and funk to country, rock, and reggae, tempering their forceful and fluid sounds with elements of Dixieland and swing to craft the Appalachiaphonic.

Admission is $5 at the door. Admission is free for children under 12.
