Lord Nelson
Lord Nelson
Lord Nelson is two brothers, one greasy trombone, backbone bass, pocket drums, dirty south guitar and a hell of a lot of fun. The band was formed in 2012 by brothers, Kai and Bram Crowe-Getty. With the addition of Henry Jones on trombone and keys, this collection of Virginia boys presents original roots rock compositions about the people and places they grew up around. Lord Nelson's sound varies from slow burning, harmony laced anthems, to back beat pulsing floor stompers.

The release of their debut album, The County, highlighted a breakout year in 2015 for Lord Nelson. They also received hometown validation by winning the 2015 Rockn' to Lockn' Charlottesville battle of the bands and subsequently performing on the main stage at Lockn' Festival. In the spring of 2017, the band is hitting the studio to record their sophomore record with Rockfish Music. After 100+ shows in 2016, this year is shaping up to be even better. New songs are emerging, new instruments coming into the mix, and new pins are dropping on the map. An ambitious young group with a powerful live show, there is a kinetic whirlwind when these guys hit the stage and it is certainly one that you want to be swept up in.
High Divers
There is no hiding that each member of The High Divers hails from South Carolina. A subtle twang dots the roots rock n’ roll landscape from which the band pulls its sound and feel. “Riverlust”, the group’s debut album, is full of southern tinged imagery that places you in the deep woods of South Carolina. The High Divers create music that nods to the southern rebelliousness of Tom Petty, the raw beauty of Neil Young, and the genre clashing of Wilco, yet is leaning forward all the time.
