Musical Sunday Brunch/Classic Country and Bluegrass at JVs

The JVs Restaurant has recently initiated a musical Brunch on certain Sundays. They have created a very hearty breakfast menu at very reasonable prices. The food is all hand-made and very good. Breakfast is served beginning at 11am on the scheduled Sundays. Lorraine, the owner has been trying to infiltrate bluegrass music into her schedule of performances So far, it has been a huge success.

Any bluegrass bands that are interested in playing should contact JVs by phone or on line through their web page. As a matter of note, Lorraine, likes to hear bands “live” before booking. A good way to do this is becoming a featured act on the Open Mic/Showcase on the first Tuesday of the month. For information regarding a featured act, contact: Andy Nocero at avnocero@gmail.com or by phone: 703-216-0560

Friday 05/26/2017
7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

From Telluride Bluegrass Festival to SxSW and all points beyond – Head for the Hills
creates a sound based in bluegrass that reaches into indie rock, jazz, hip hop, world
and folk to stitch together fresh songs that bridge the divide between past and future
acoustic music.

Strung Like a Horse is a high energy gypsy punk grass band based in Chattanooga, TN. They are coming fresh off of their third official release, FREE, and touring nationally. Your first taste of Strung Like a Horse is like that first sip of moonshine—it will blow your hat off your head and it’s far more intoxicating than you expected. They draw inspiration from folk punk bands like The Violent Femmes, but their roots are buried deep in the good ol’ fashioned home-made hillbilly stomp grass. These junkyard dogs bring “honest, playful, headbangingly interactive fun” to any venue their rocket crashes.

Amongst the orange and red fallen from trees lining the Shenandoah River, the duo of Dear Creek was born. In 2009, singer/guitarist, Kate Potrykus, and guitarist, Alex Salser, could be found writing songs between classes and playing local gigs on the weekends. Soon, Dear Creek grew into a 5-piece, inspired by the sounds of the Appalachian Valley in which they were cradled, and the jazz, blues, folk, and rock music, which moved them to become musicians in the first place. Two albums, several tours including a recent 16 State tour, and a few line-ups later, Alex and Kate have stripped down to the very foundation upon which they had started. Now catch Dear Creek live as a duo as they tour the country releasing their newest album, “So it Goes.” Listeners will get tripped up in the roots of Dear Creek’s energetic, acoustic grooves, and leave their show soothed by the sultry sounds of their soaring melodies.

You must be 18 or over to enter unless accompanied by your parent. Valid ID required.

Bluegrass & BBQ: Town Mountain
Barns of Rose Hill, Berryville VA

Join us for a night of Bluegrass & BBQ with Town Mountain!

Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain has earned raves for their hard-driving sound, their in-house songwriting and the honky-tonk edge that permeates their exhilarating live performances, whether in a packed club or at a sold-out festival. The hearty base of Town Mountain’s music is the bluegrass triumvirate of Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. It’s what else goes into the mix that brings it all to life both on stage and on record and reflects the group’s wide-ranging influences – from the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia and the ethereal lyrics of Robert Hunter, to the honest, vintage country of Willie, Waylon and Merle.

Doors open at 7:00 and concert starts at 8:00 PM
Award-winning BBQ from Jordan Springs Market will be available for sale from 7:00 to 8:30 PM

$20 advance / $25 door / 12 & Under Free
