Skydog at the Rives

Sat., Oct. 27thSeason Passes gladly acceptedSkydog was the nickname given to Duane Allman during his years as a Muscle Shoals session musician. In the wake of the 40th anniversary of The Allman Brothers Band, Skydog returns. This Richmond, VA powerhouse is quickly becoming one of the most sought after ABB tributes in the nation. These six seasoned musicians rekindle the spirit of the original ABB line up. Driven by their passion to pay homage to Duane and Berry, Skydog revisits the early years with classic Fillmore East arrangements and unbridled grit. The members of Skydog share a long history performing together in other ensembles and after several years of talking about how much fun this would be, it was high time for Skydog to be unleashed. If its vintage Allmans that you crave, look no further, Skydog is it. Tix: $12 adv//$15.

AJ Ghent at the Rives

Sat., Nov. 10thSeason Passes gladly accepted. AJ Ghent [j-ent] and His Singing Guitar construct a musical sound that can be heard howling from the church to the streets to the clubs. His style can be defined as fresh, nostalgic, electrifying and roots rock, — fusing blues, funk, rock, and pop, mashing it into a genre he likes to call, NEO BLUES.

The energy and passion which resonates from AJ’s music, from the strum of the guitar and the conviction of the vocals, the pounding rhythm of the drums, to the thought provoking lyrics, is sure to be felt by any crowd.  AJ aims to create an unforgettable experience for music lovers, with the hopes of taking them to a musical paradise.  A little hip-shaking, finger snapping, head nodding is all you need for this tuneful travel excursion. He calls James Brown, Prince, and his family heritage as influences. He can be heard picking, sliding and strumming all over those strings, whether it’s one of his custom built 6 or 8-string lap steel hybrids or his acoustic resonator. What is different from most lap steel players is AJ performs standing upright like a guitar player, using his over handed technique to play slide, so that he can dance, and have more mobility during his live shows.  AJ was born to fly! Tix $12 adv//$15.
