Jackass Flats
Jackass Flats
Fueled by original songwriting, award winning musicianship, and exhilarating bluegrass instrumentation, Jackass Flats epitomizes the new generation of acoustic string bands who combine creativity and tradition to produce something all together unique. Since taking home Virginia State Champion Bluegrass Band honors in 2002, the boys have been crowd favorites on the bluegrass, americana, and world music scenes. In 2003 Jackass Flats took their local music scene by storm and were awarded Best Bluegrass/Country Band by internet magazine Richmond.com, who called the band "masters of backwoods symphonies". In 2004 the band was presented with a Virginia Music Award for The Best Americana Jamband.
VILLAGES
VILLAGES
VILLAGES is what happens when a lifelong piano player has a midlife musical crisis, teaches himself guitar, writes 70+ songs in a little over a year, and then gets his super talented friends to make them sound cool.

"It's kind of an experiment that has gotten out of hand," says Justin Paciocco. "At first, I was looking for a new hobby and wondered if I could teach myself guitar. I figured it'd be something I'd play around with for a few weeks and then lose interest and move on to something else. Fast forward a year, and it's crazy to think I'm now fronting a new band, playing live shows, recording an album. This whole thing has been unexpected, but it's been a blast too."

The band -- known as VILLAGES -- includes a revolving collaboration of some of RVA's most plugged-in musicians: Stephen Lecky (Farm Vegas), Zach Hudgins (Jackass Flats), Corey Wells (Shack Band), James Lloyd Hodges (Avers), and Stephen Kuester (Jackass Flats). Their folky, countrified debut EP was recorded with the help of Zach Fichter and Jeremy Simmons, and is slated to be released later this summer.
