AJ Ghent Performing at The Rives Theatre Tomorrow Night
Friday November 9, 2018
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. AJ was born to fly! 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.
Local Musician Griffin Haley will open. Haley is a Martinsville-based band. Founded by Griffin Haley. After a stint of living outside of Memphis Tennessee in Jonesboro, AR, he came back to Virginia inspired by the Rock n Roll and Soul he found in Memphis , and the Blues and Gospel Music of the Mississippi River Delta. Having made appearances with many other bands at festivals such as Roosterwalk, Front Porch Fest, Floydfest and many others Griffin decided it was time to form his own group. Playing a variety of covers and originals he blends blues, r&b, country and rock and roll and cycles out musicians so each show is a unique experience.
