About This Event
Please join us as we welcome Wil Gravatt Band for his monthly “Pickin On The Hill” residency.
Wil Gravatt has the sensibility of a musician who has explored and performed many styles. A dichotomous journey from singing drummer – to frontman for the popular country and western powerhouse Wil Gravatt Band.
A new album project in 2019 paired Wil with Grammy winner Ray Kennedy (producer of such stellar artists as Lucinda Williams, John Mellencamp, & Taylor Swift) and Wil’s longtime producer Paul Royce Koch. The album and the band were both WAMA finalists. The results are simply the best work Wil has done. One listen to the fiddle-laden, rollicking “Carnival Girl” gives you a sense of the talent behind the songwriting, performance, and production of the entire album.
Wil Gravatt and Paul Koch make a great team of musical excellence!”
Mackenzie Ryan – Mack is a committed, driven artist whose talents are rivaled only by her passion for and love of music.
A professionally trained vocalist, self-taught multi-instrumentalist and burgeoning producer, Mack utilizes her uniquely powerful voice to perform a wide variety of classic and contemporary musical selections in a way that is at once subtly nuanced and refreshingly vibrant. Part rock ‘n’ roll, a little country, some funk, a touch of soul and all heart, Mack’s music is as perfectly suited for bars and wineries as it is for the big stage.
Her acoustic solo set is filled with a diverse mix of sing-along songs from Van Morrison and Creedence Clearwater Revival to Smokey Robinson and The Lumineers. Her band, currently unnamed, is an eclectic group of talented musicians with a wide-ranging, distinctively energetic sound.
She takes creative inspiration from Etta James, Frank Ocean and The Rolling Stones and credits Stevie Nicks and Led Zeppelin for her musical motivation. She is currently working on her first EP.
Mack, a native Virginian and George Mason graduate, plays public and private shows in and around Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C.
She has opened for the southern-rock group Jason Morton and The Chesapeake Sons, the soul-singing band Driven to Clarity and country stars Phil Vassar, Michael Ray and Montgomery Gentry.
