This Saturday at The Rives: MHC Chamber Night The Trongone Band
Wednesday January 10, 2018
Join us Saturday at the Rives Theatre for The Trongone Band on MHC Chamber Night! This southern rock group from Richmond, VA, will perform a special tribute set to rock's fallen heros from 2017, plus a second set of original music.
With a sound that Paste Magazine likens to the “freak-outs of My Morning Jacket with the Muscle Shoals-inspired Leslie speakers and The Band’s narrative storytelling,” The Trongone Band is turning heads and making an impact on the Southern Rock ‘n’ Soul and Americana scenes.
Formed by brothers Andrew and Johnny Trongone with father John Sr on bass, The Trongone Band (tron-GO-knee) has grown from a family affair, playing a weekly sold out residency at Richmond’s Cary Street Cafe, to a full on touring machine with the addition of keyboardist Ben “Wolfe” White and bassist Todd Herrington. In the words of Live for Live Music, “the quartet has come together to create an old-school and all-in-the-family sound reminiscent of the Allman Brothers while still keeping it fresh with their cutting edge original compositions that also infuse funk and blues into the mix.” They have performed at Rooster Walk, the Rives and at Brewster Walk in the past 3 years.
Tickets are available locally at the Daily Grind and Rising Sun Breads. Chamber of Commerce members can get free tickets by emailing Sharon at firstname.lastname@example.org and Rives Theatre 2018 Season Pass holders get in FREE.
