The Java Brothers bluegrass band is from Radford, Virginia and was born out of the The Java Brothers grew out of Radford’s Monday Night Fiddle & Banjo Jam. They are progressive, but pretty much only to the extent that they'll play new songs as hard driving bluegrass with some rock 'n roll vibes.

They love Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, The Seldom Scene, JD Crowe, Tony Rice, Jimmy Martin, Sam Bush, the Country Gentlemen, the Beatles, the Stones, and all the greats. The Java Brothers have a fun live show that mixes standard Bluegrass and Newgrass with fiery original tunes.

The Java Brothers have become Radford’s house band however they’ve played dances, festivals, brew pubs, and church services all over Southwest Virginia.



The Mudd Daubers and Queen Bees are a local Blacksburg, VA rock 'n roll band performing your favorite classic rock covers from the 60s, 70s and 80s along with some extras.

This group of all-star musicians hail from the New River Valley of Virginia, up in the spine of the Appalachians where rock and blues meet to jam, where the mountains meet the sky and raise your spirits high, where psychedelic funk punch is just what’s for breakfast. Timewave Zero music drives crowds straight into the heart of the singularity connect today!

With a band name inspired by Terrence Mckenna's i-Ching mathematics and eschatological explorations, TW0 is always at the ready for a live dance music adventure. These musicians have played together for crowds of hundreds in several formulations including: The Jackass Menagerie, The Jugbusters, and the Dirty Hairies. As their CDs, videos and websites show, groove and positive messaging dominate 'the happening'.

An original Blacksburg band started circa 2003 and evolved over the years as epic electric instruments, keys, and saxophone came, conquered and graduated. From the Jackass Menagerie release 'No Particular Order' (2005) to the 2007 release of 'Pimps In Space' as Timewave Zero, the band is always hosting the best talent in town. Recent gigs energized crowds at Virginia Tech, Blacksburg's Mingle, The Sycamore, and over the airwaves with WUVT radio appearances. In 2014 the band headlined and hosted a special tribute show for the songwriter Will Killhour at the Blue Nile in New Orleans.



Catahoula is a 70s and 80s rock band based in Radford, VA.

Ball & Chain is a stripped down acoustic rock duo. A girl from the mountains of Virginia and a boy from the Bronx. The regional musical influences of each coalesce into melodious tension. Passion, fun and sass pervades Jon & Lucinda’s blend of rock, R&B, and blues, resulting in vocals and harmonies that stroke your soul. And if you don’t have a soul, then you’ll probably still enjoy listening to some good music. Original Americana with an edge, eclectic covers thrown in for good measure. Adult alternative for those who like to classify.



Food Trucks include:
• Tacos El Tio
• Snack Time
• Afternoon Delight
