Music Line-Up:

Jared Stout is a musician based in Blacksburg, VA playing all the music under the sun. Enjoy him and his band performing a firm variety of country, pop, rock, R&B, folk and many others.


Electric Woodshed is a long running band established in 1987 based in Blacksburg and Roanoke, Virginia. Blending bluesy, funky, country,and classic rock sounds into genuine southern Virginia rock and roll.


Fritz Schindler is a whirlwind of musical enthusiasm. His energetic live shows combine him playing a vast array of traditional Appalachian instruments—mandolin, guitar, hammered dulcimer, bouzouki, banjo, percussion—along with his versatile singing voice and occasionally a few friends. Frequently added into the mix are live-looping and layering techniques, combined together to make a unique and spell-binding experience we like to call Contagious Folk ‘n’ Roll.

Over the years, Fritz has shared the stage with such notable acts as Hawk Nelson, The Vespers, Raymond & Ruth McLain, The New Coon Creek Girls, Nevertheless, BlueTree, Ilia, The Afters, and 7eventh Time Down. In 2014 Fritz began touring with a full backing band, playing concerts, churches, and festivals in Tennessee, West Virginia, and his home states of Virginia and Kentucky. In 2015, Fritz hit the road again with his talented backing band, The Saucy Fellows, as well as playing a few solo shows, both featuring more instrumental songs, live-looping, and as always, the signature smile and warm enthusiasm he brings to every stage.

No matter your age or musical preference, within a few short minutes, Fritz Schindler will have your toes tapping, hands clapping, and before you know it, you’ll probably find yourself singing or dancing along…


Taylor Kent is a singer songwriter from Hilton Head, South Carolina. With a buoyant, smoky quality to her voice reminiscent of Colbie Caillat or Indie Chanteuse St. Vincent, Taylor has captured the attention of many audiences along the eastern seaboard. Taylor Kent's fearlessness behind a microphone and confidence on stage has surprised and impressed her friends and classmates and helped win over many ranging from restaurants, breweries, wineries and clubs.


Chas & Bill is made up of cousins Chasity Lucas and Bill Bugg. They perform a wide range of musical favorites that everyone can enjoy. Their sound and influences range from the bluegrass and country sound of Alison Krauss to the hard hitting rock and metal of Metallica.
