Virginia Ground live at The Hummingbird in Downtown Macon
June 1, 2018 @ 10:00 pm - 2:00 am| $5
Virginia Ground plays such a unique style of music that they created their own genre just to describe it: That is the Appalachiaphonic. Around Jamen Denton and his fountain-esque vocals and songwriting is an ensemble of inventive musicians who create a sound at once electrically novel, and yet hauntingly familiar. With Justin Denton on drums, Logan Fritz on bass, Will Outlaw on trombone, Ben Smith on harmonica, Jon McGlocklin singing lead harmony and Jamen Denton on guitar and lead vocals, this group marries sounds from blues and funk to country, rock, and reggae, and then tempers their forceful and fluid sounds with elements of Dixieland and swing to craft the Appalachiaphonic.
“When ole Bobby gave me y’alls album I listened to it and realized real quick that you fellers needed to come up here(Woodstock, NY) and play a Midnight Ramble!”
-Levon Helm, The Band
“With a unique sound, this six member band plays their original songs ranging from drivin’ rock to sultry ballads with more sound from a six-string, trombone, and harmonica than seems legal!
-Dave McCartney “LA Times”
