No BS! Brass
No BS! Brass
No BS! Brass takes the New Orleans brass band into uncharted territory, fearlessly combining elements of James Brown, John Coltrane, Michael Jackson, and Led Zeppelin into their fiercely original sound. Trained in the conservatory and hardened in the garage, No BS! Brass has performed at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, the Festival of New Trumpet Music, and on National Public Radio's Tiny Desk Concert. Equally at home in the club or on the parade route, in the concert hall or on a festival stage, No BS! Brass creates new believers wherever it goes.
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.
Angelica Garcia
Angelica Garcia
Singer and songwriter Angelica Garcia's journey "down the rabbit hole" began when she moved to Accomac, Virginia. Graduating from Los Angeles School for the Arts, the 17-year-old native Angeleno found herself living in a 200-year-old gothic brick home encircled by magnolia trees and under a blanket of bright stars. Her stepfather traded a career in the music industry for Episcopalian priesthood, and an Eastern Shore church would serve as his (and the family's) first congregation. Isolated and alone, Angelica locked herself in the parish house and fashioned a musical world that veers between ghostly gorgeous countrified blues and sly swamp Americana. With a childlike whimsy, quirky sense of humor, and dynamic delivery, it could easily soundtrack an apparitions' ball in some Faulknerian mansion. Upon first listen, it entranced Warner Bros. Records.
Recorded by Charlie Peacock [The Civil Wars, Switchfoot] in Nashville, her full-length debut Medicine For Birds unlocks this world for everyone in 2016.
South Hill Banks

Dharma Bombs
Dharma Bombs
Dharma Bombs formed in the heart of the Commonwealth with the intent to spread Appalachian music with a heaping side of jazz and country. We are a folk band equipped with a full horn section, lyrical swing, and a yearning to stir the dust off the dance floor. With diverse backgrounds from the swampy sounds of Baton Rouge to the crooning twang of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Dharma Bombs is a confluence between folk music born on the street corners and ridge lines of America. Hoot and holler, stomp and clap, twang and sang with the rowdy Dharma Bombs as they spread their special brand of American roots music.
Classical Revolution
March Mindfulness combines the beauty of classical music with a heightened sense of awareness using breath and movement. Jessica Scalin will guide Yoga practicers to an oasis of time and space apart from your busy schedule. It’s an opportunity to bring your full attention to the present moment.

Distinguished Cellist Schuyler Slack will perform music by Johann Sebastian Bach during active Yoga practice, and conclude with Steve Snowden's "This Mortal Frame," during a savasana meditation state.

"This Mortal Frame" is a musical odyssey inspired by a Richmond slave's escape to freedom by mailing himself to Philadelphia in a wooden box.

No prior experience with classical music or yoga is required to enter this dreamscape. Please bring comfortable shoes/activewear and a yoga mat.
