The Shack Band
The Shack Band
What 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 & 2013, The Shack Band played 250 + 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 2014, 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.

The Northerners
The Northerners
Brother and Sister singer/songwriting duo Justin and Ally Khoury started out playing and writing folk songs in Richmond in 2012. After making the rounds playing open mic nights they recruited drums, bass and lead guitar taking their folk singer sound and turning it upside down. Since then they have made a big splash in the Mid Atlantic music scene playing venues, festivals, and fraternities. The Northerners have released their first EP called 'Virginia' in May 2014.
