TINS FOR TUNES CONCERT SERIES & FOOD DRIVE May
Featuring The Kokomotions
The Kokomotions were formed In the early 80's as a side project by innovator Billy Brockman, new to the area and long musical partner of Billy - Skip Haga, well experienced rhythm section consisting of Steve Riggs and Eddie Hall and wild sax man Ross Aliston. Unexpectedly, with it's high energy, great musicianship, New Orleans flavor and really fun and danceable music, the band immediately became a force in the Charlottesville and surrounding area and turned into a full time band. Skip, Billy and Eddie began writing strong material that fit right in to the band's feel. This continued through the 80's until it's demise.
Well, they're back and much more experienced individually, playing the best of the old material and mixing in new. It's just as much fun as it always was,

TINS FOR TUNES CONCERT SERIES & FOOD DRIVE August
Featuring The Atkinsons
The Atkinsons meld roots, country, mountain, and rock music into their own style of rambling swing rock & roll. Heartfelt story-telling is at the core of The Atkinsons and is complemented with three-part harmonies layered over mandolin, fiddle, drums, bass, and electric guitars. With influences ranging from Old 97s to Green Day to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to Drive By Truckers, the sound ends up being quite a musical stew.
