Elizabeth II & Jonny Grave **FREE SHOW**
About This Event
Elizabeth II grew up on an evolving musical diet, from Led Zeppelin, Bon Jovi and Whitesnake, to Nirvana, to Dead Sara, Nothing but Thieves and My Chemical Romance. She combines catchy melodies and heavy riffs delivered in three-minute explosions of punk, pop and rock. Elizabeth II delivers as a player, a singer and a songwriter, with dark lyrics of universal love, uncommon loss, and storylines that stand the test of time. Since 2017, Elizabeth II has notched a solid body of work and been recognized accordingly. In 2020, she won The MusicianShip’s 2020 WAMMIE Award for Best Rock Song (“Lonely”), and in 2021 she won the WAMMIE Awards for Best Hard Rock Song (“Bite My Neck”) and Best Rock Artist.
Jonny Grave is a guitarist, songwriter, singer, bandleader, teacher, musical historian, and photojournalist from Washington, D.C. Growing up in a musical family, Jonny Grave was introduced to the sounds of American traditional folk music early on. At age fifteen, he found himself learning slide guitar techniques from old Blues records, and by seventeen he was performing them live. Grave has performed at hundreds of venues all over the world from the red dirt floor of Gip’s Juke Joint, to the red carpet of the Kennedy Center.
