“We’re excited to have our third annual holiday tour coming up later this year,” band leader Jimbo Mathus remarked. “These shows are always so fun and special. We’ll be playing selections from our Christmas Caravan album, holiday hits and of course the finest new and old Squirrel Nut Zippers music for you all.”

The Squirrel Nut Zippers most recent studio album titled Beasts Of Burgundy was released in 2018. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard Jazz Albums Chart upon it’s release. It was back in 1998 when the Squirrel Nut Zippers released their first and only Holiday album titled Christmas Caravan which went on to sell a quarter of a million copies and reached #12 on the Billboard Holiday Albums chart.

Since reactivating in mid-2016 the Squirrel Nut Zippers have been performing to packed houses across the country and around the world. As Jimbo Mathus has said since the band’s re-launch, ‘it’s not a reunion, it’s a revival.’

The Judy Chops are an indomitable force in the VA music scene, rocking audiences with original tunes, remixed covers, and mash ups since 2008. Averaging over 150 shows a year, the Chops are a high-energy Americana 7-piece group who delight in wowing audiences throughout the Mid-Atlantic and beyond. Their many festival appearances and shows have included opening for acts like Lake Street Dive, The Black Lillies, Miss Tess & the Talkbacks, David Mayfield Parade, and J.P. Harris & the Tough Choices, and Igor & Red Elvises have proven the Chops to be consummate performers. The band’s sound is built around strong three part harmony vocals, acoustic guitar, baritone banjo uke, searing electric guitar and fiddle solos and a unique rhythm section featuring upright bass, cocktail drums, with the occasional horn player to round out the mix. Stylistically, the band blends elements of swing, blues, rock-a-billy, classic country and western, with a modern flair, for a unique, genre-defying musical experience. The Chops have previous recorded three albums, Modern Vintage Vol. 1 in 2008 and Give Her the Gun in 2010. In 2013, The Judy Chops were voted "Best Local Roots Band" at the inaugural Red Wing Roots Music festival in Mt. Solon, VA, bringing home 20 hours of studio time at Blue Sprocket Sound in Harrisonburg VA, and a microphone package from Peluso Microphone Labs. These prizes enabled them to record their most ambitious album to date, Minor Sunshine, released in June 2014. The band will be releasing an EP of B-Sides and Singles in 2015 in conjunction with Blue Sprocket Sound.
