Washed Up

Washed Up is a local Pop-Punk band from Roanoke, VA. This power trio consists of Sean P. Romano, James Stover and Tanner Martin. In just three short years the band has built an audience from small local venues such as Roanoke’s very own Coffee Pot and Backstreet Café all the way to large festivals such as Troutville Trail Days and Floyd Fest. In January of 2015 Washed Up released their hit Extended Play Album "If Only You" which can be purchased on Itunes, Google Play, and Amazon MP3 or streamed on Spotify. Washed Up’s Green Day and Black Keys infused sound renews and revives the sound of the 1990’s with their upcoming album "Somebody Has To Do Something."

Glen Shelton

Glen Shelton has hared the stage with more than 40 National Acts including Joe Nichols, Sawyer Brown, Tanya Tucker, Randy Travis, Lonestar, Darryl Worley, Rhonda Vincent, Ronnie McDowell, Lee Ann Womack, and Jimmy Fortune.

Most of Glen’s performances include popular Country music (cover songs) as well as a few of Glen’s own songs. His show is very high energy and entertaining, and also very professional and suitable for all ages. Great music for all family events!

Jenny & the b-side rockers

Voted “Best Music” of 2016 in the News & Advance Readers Choice Awards and also Award Winners in “The Best Of” Lynchburg Living Magazine, Jenny & the B-Side Rockers provide high octane roots rockabilly music, jump blues and vintage country western swing. Our line up is comprised of Melissa Ruiz on lead vocals, Jason Ruiz on lead guitar, David Foust on drums, and Patrick Hubble on upright bass. You'll hear songs by Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Aretha Franklin, The Stray Cats, and many more that will have the whole family head bobbin', toe tappin', and dancin'!

Chad Nickell & Loose Change

Chad Nickell & The Loose Change is comprised of Daniel Jackson on lead guitar and vocals, Josh Woodzell on percussion, Jeremy Berberette on bass guitar and vocals, and Chad Nickell on lead vocals and acoustic guitar. They only recently joined forces in the spring of 2015, but have been veterans in the local music scene of the Alleghany Highlands area for years. They came together with the common goal to write and perform heartfelt, original, anthemic rock, mostly stemming from the mind of their passionate and driven frontman, Chad Nickell.

Funky Bone

Funky Bone will be the Saturday night headlining band for Uncle Billy’s Day for the first time.  The band is from Lynchburg, Virginia, plays funky music with a rock sensibility. You know the feeling, when you hear that awesome funky tune that forces you to get up and pull a friend to the dance floor or that great rock tune that makes you want to jump up and down and pump your fist in the air, yeah, that’s a Funky Bone show. James Brown, Prince, Rick James, Lenny Kravits, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Parliament, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Daft Punk….if its funky, soulful, edgy, wild, crazy, its Funky Bone material. Mind blowing mash ups and montages keep things fresh and exciting. Long sets of continuous music keep the audience engaged and the dance floor packed. Check out a Funky Bone show, even if you think you don’t have a funky bone in your body, you will have a great time.
