Jacob Jolliff was born into a musical family in Newberg, OR. His dad started him on the mandolin at age seven and required him to practice ten minutes a day. But after six months of practicing this minimal amount, something clicked, and almost overnight he started putting in several hours of intense practice daily. And this hasn’t really changed in the last 20 years. Now in 2021, the mandolinists main focus is The Jacob Jolliff Band. This ensemble is a group of virtuoso pickers that play Jacobs original instrumentals, as well as showcase his singing. They tour nationally in the US and have also traveled to Scotland and Australia to perform. Over the years, Jacob has had pleasure of sharing the stage with many legendary musicians spanning many genres including Darol Anger, Tony Trischka, Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Jerry Douglas, Bryan Bowers, John Popper, The David Grisman Quintet, Widespread Panic, The String Cheese Incident, Michael Daves, and many more.
Miss Tess has always been known for creating an eclectic array of vintage blues, country, and jazz sounds. Currently residing in Nashville, she finds no shortage of inspiration in the roots scene there. However varied Tess music can be, front and center sits her voice that has been described as alternately seductive and sexy, and a pure joy to listen to (Pop Matters). Her music is further heightened by her partner, Thomas Bryan Eaton, who helps to shape the songs and arrangements with a deft touch on guitar & pedal steel. No slouch herself, Tess brings along her Weymann archtop guitar, often trading leads with Thomas. This past winter the two teamed up with veteran producer Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff) at his studio in East Nashville to create a new record that both reaches back to Tess roots, yet also signals a new chapter in her career. The record, to be titled The Moon is an Ashtray, is getting its finishing touches and will be released Feb 7.

Drawing from Neil’s acoustic days in the Toronto folk scene, through the golden sound of the Buffalo Springfield in L.A., the proto-grunge of Crazy Horse, the shimmering vocals of CSNY, the country roots of The Stray Gators and The International Harvesters, all the way to the raw energy of The Promise of the Real, Danger Bird digs deep into the catalog of one of the greatest songwriters ever. They take their audience on a “Journey Through the Past”, spinning the story of Neil Young and his music. Their vocal harmonies and faithful arrangements will have you believing you are hearing the great man himself.
The Riverbreaks is a rock band known for its rowdy shows, lyrical depth, and provocative instrumentation. Formed around songs Ryan Bailey (lead singer) wrote in Central America during his time in the Peace Corps, the band quickly developed a strong following in its home base of Washington, D.C. In 2012, the band recorded with acclaimed producer Chris Stamey (The dBs, Whiskeytown, Alejandro Escovedo) in Chapel Hill, N.C., returning to the area where many of the bands members originally met during their time at UNC-Chapel Hill. The resulting album Wildfire further propelled The Riverbreaks, which has since toured 27 states domestically and 14 countries internationally with long-term band members Bailey, Andrew Satten (keyboard), Jesse Prentice-Dunn (guitar), Drew Ball (bass), Danny Crawford (percussion), and Neela Rajendra (violin).

“Virginia singer/songwriter’s album starts off with a bang — three strong originals (one of which reminds me of vintage Mark Knopfler)…it’s well worth checking out.”

Please join us on Friday September 23 as we welcome a DC favorite back to our stage. Human Country Jukebox feat – Jack Gregori from season 8 of “The Voice”
Human Country Jukebox, created by singer-songwriter, guitar-picker Jack Gregori, has its roots in rabble-rousing outlaw country bands from the good old days in the deep South. HCJ claims no hometown – “No town can hold me,” Jack insists with a slight wink – but you’ll swear this band comes straight outta North Texas.
Front man Jack Gregori grew up singing and playing whatever musical instruments were around him. “I got hooked when I was a kid in the 80’s and watched The Blues Brothers movie. That opened it up for me and I haven’t stopped since.” Eventually, Jack started performing at open mic nights. By 2010, he had picked up some local musicians, beginning the evolution into the Human Country Jukebox band. Since then, the band has performed well over a hundred times, mainly in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area.
The name Human Country Jukebox actually refers to Jack himself. He’s memorized more than 200 country-western hits. Shout out the name of any song at one of their shows, and you’ll discover that HCJ can wing anything.
Taking requests and interacting with the audience is a signature of every HCJ performance. Audiences can expect a different show every time, filled with creative improvisations and reinterpretations of classic country tunes. Just don’t yell out “Sweet Home Alabama.”
The Walkaways are a metropolitan DC-based band, making original music since 2006. The band released its third full-length album entitled “After the Fall” in 2017. This follows Fifty Left to Burn (2008) and Romance and Medicine (2012), the latter recorded and co-produced with Grammy-nominated producer John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter, Indigo Girls, The Rankin Family, Iris Dement). From the beginning The Walkaways’ sound has been called “alt-country” (Washington Post, Washington City Paper, Washingtonian Magazine)—that description still fits pretty well. Their songs draw more broadly, however, from Americana, folk, roots rock, country, indie, and classic rock. The Walkaways will be joined by Wicked Sycamore, an all-female trio hailing from the Baltimore/DC area, consisting of Juliette Bell on guitar, Lainie Gray on mandolin, and Madeline Waters on cello. They have a contemporary folk sound with a mischievous edge that is grounded in traditional roots, Americana, and bluegrass.
