People's Blues Of Richmond
People's Blues Of Richmond
For fans of: Gogol Bordello, Modest Mouse, Led Zeppelin.

The uprising in infamy of People's Blues of Richmond started with the wild ruckus they caused in house parties and how that poor host's carpets might never be the same again once they graced the floors with their window-shaking rock. Created by the Richmond raised-angst that that was brewing inside of guitarist/vocalist Tim Beavers and bassist/vocalist Matthew Volkes, the twosome found they grew up in fine company together and explored adolescence, college and creative expression together on stage during open mic nights at the local venue Emilio's. The house drummer at Emilio's, Raph, provided the pulsating backbone of their anthem as they continued to put together covers and originals in order to keep meeting together and playing. Their intensity remained more memorable than the plethora of bands that teenagers create as outlets for their razor-sharped growing pains, resulting in them forming a group appropriately called "People's Blues of Richmond" and playing together regularly. PBR's self-described "honest" music resonates amongst the tired-eyed drunk and anxious in the Richmond bar scene. Coming to sing their woes and shake their bones wielding bar bottles like weapons to the sky, crowds gather around their muscular performances. With notes of emotional powerhouses such as Against Me, Modest Mouse, and Built to Spill, but with a sound all their own, PBR transcends any limitations of genre-labeling and goes straight to the heart of their listeners. They attract fans of jam music as well as rock music, punk music, and acoustic music, by creating an unforgettable show for whoever gathers around to listen. Playing now for four years and appearing at over 15 different festivals, the band is accruing an enthusiastic following with a rapid and disorderly speed.

Dalton Dash
Dalton Dash began as a simple duet that has quickly burst into a colossal sound flared by robust song writing, ardent vocals and sturdy musicianship. This soul-folk quintet originally met in the mountains of Appalachia. Their eclectic taste allows them to play shows that range from bluegrass to hard hitting rock and roll sets all the way to jazz funk and delta blues. When founding members Pat Keefe (guitar/vocals) and Justin Doyle (bass/vocals) moved to Richmond their ambitions to perform were greatly welcomed by the commending music scene.Their songs about love and lust, money and drugs, began to need more “umph” as they invited Keegan Lemcke to play with them on mandolin. Soon after they were joined by the impeccable talents of Andrew Sisk (drums) and Sid Kingsely (piano/vocals). The band has been blessed with the friendship of some of the best local Richmond VA musicians. Lately they have been enjoying their weekly residency at Cary St. Cafe performing alongside members of People’s Blues of Richmond, Southern Belles, Faceship, and Bandrew.
