Jason Pollock, Thomas Gunn & Friends – 30 Dec 2017 @Batesville Market

Jason Pollock and Thomas Gunn of The Pollocks will invite more than a few special guests from the local community up on stage to sing and perform. They’ll (of course!) play the hits that everyone knows and loves, but they’ll debut some shiny new pennies that they’ve been hoarding in The Pollocks’ vault. You won’t find a better way to celebrate the old year and anticipate what’s to come!

Travis Elliott – 23 Dec 2017 @Batesville Market

By his mid thirties, singer/songwriter/guitarist Travis Elliott has been around—touring the United States and Carribbean, opening for regional and nation acts, and of course, his home, Charlottesville, Virginia. His music has been described as pop, alternative, a little folky, rock, Americana, and most of all, catchy. His first EP in 2005 was hailed by Charlottesville’s The Hook as a “modern rock epic,” and in 2008 he earned Best Solo Artist of the Year by C’ville Weekly. In 2010, Travis released his first full length album, Swan Dive, which spent a week in iTunes’ New & Noteworthy section.

Travis’ ability to bring in various musicians for a last minute gig gives his music a fresh angle and new sound on any given night. Lately, however, he has found righteous consistency with the added guitar playing from Tucker Rogers, thundering piano and vocals/harmony from Kristen Bowden and modest cajon percussion from Drex Weaver.

His melodies follow the natural rhythm of life, and his lyrics speak to the soul with passion…and don’t expect to get his songs out of your head, either.

Nic & Jo – 17 Dec 2017 @Batesville Market

Nic & Jo have been playing together for over a year and have created a unique sound with strong harmonies, guitar strums, and washboard beats…while not being too sore on the eyes.

Nicole Giordano-Averill is a local musician from North Garden that’s been playing folk tunes and originals since she was 12. Self taught with some direction from her dad, Micheal Giordano from local new grass band, The Weedeaters, Nicole sings and plays the guitar with a folky original twist. Her originals are inspired from her 2 young girls, broken hearts, new loves, and tried and true life experiences.

Betty Jo Taylor is a from a small town in southeast Virginia and moved to the Charlottesville area in the late 70’s. She began singing alto in her hometown church choir at an early age and continued to sing in various venues throughout the years including a local top forty band in the 80’s called “Hotwire” with Tim Reynolds, to the Sweet Adelines and Richmond Symphony choruses and numerous local folk bands.

The Gladstones – 16 Dec 2017 @Batesville Market

The Gladstones

are a four-piece rock and roll outfit fronted by Charlottesville veterans Charlie Pastorfield (Skip Castro Band, Alligator) and Bob Girard (The Casuals featuring Johnny Sportcoat, Alligator) and supported by in the rhythm section by bass player Tim Ryan (Left Lane, Jeebus) and drummer Jim Ralston (Baaba Seth, Jeebus). The Gladstones play straight, old school rock ‘n’ roll of every variety — originals penned by Girard and Pastorfield in the styles of Johnny Cash to The Clash, the Rolling Stones to Grateful Dead. They have been playing in the mid-Atlantic under this name since 2006, although their collective roots go back decades.
