Sat., Jan. 27 – Victor Wainwright & The Train – 2018 Opening Party!

14 Jan

BB King Entertainer of the Year & Three-Time Blues Piano Player of the Year

The Rives’ Anuual Opening Party w/ open bar and catered dinner – Sat., Jan. 27, 2018 – Though his career began over a decade ago with genuine rock n’ roll honky-tonk, Wainwright has broadened his artistic scope over the years to include music representing virtually every corner of the blues. His insatiable interest in music discovery, sheer love for entertaining and curiosity have led him all around the world, and the resulting perspective is a reflection of his passion for entertaining and creating progressive roots music in an effort to move the art-form forward. Composer, producer, vocalist, and award wining entertainer and piano player; Victor Wainwright is a raucous high-octane, dynamic performer and crowd pleaser with soul to spare. Tickets: $125 each (includes 2018 season pass to at least six additional concerts in 2018).

Doors & Open Bar 7 pm // Dinner served 7:30 pm // Music starts 8:30 pm

SOLD OUT – Dec. 16 – Billy Strings

26 Nov

Update: This show is SOLD OUT.

FYIs for those who have never been to a show at the Rives…

This won’t be a “fully-seated” show. We have 180 seats in the theatre, plus a standing area/dance floor directly in front of the stage. So there will be more people in the room than seats in the room, just so you know.

It’s a sold out show, so it will be very crowded.

All seats are first come, first served. Billy will hit the stage at 9 pm. Doors will open to the public at 8 pm. We’ll have a local food truck outside of the theatre.

We sell beer (craft & domestic), wine, soft drinks, pizza and popcorn in the lobby. In the actual theatre, where the band performs, we’ll have a small bar selling a limited menu of domestic beer.

Thank you for supporting Billy Strings, and live music in Martinsville, Va!
