First Thurday w/ Erin & The Wildfire featuring Darzo

Erin & The Wildfire


All Ages


Powerful vocals. Infectious hooks. Sensual harmonies. Snacks.

Erin & the Wildfire combine elements of funk, soul, and R&B into a unique experience for fans. Featuring the core four: Matt Wood (bass), Ryan Lipps (guitar), Nick Quillen (drums) and Erin Lunsford (vocals) – who’ve been together since college, evolving their sound for six years – and a rotating menagerie of talented musicians out of Virginia.

The lyrical content comes from Lunsford’s life, loves, and the passions of her and the rest of the Wildfire – including those of female solidarity, body positivity, and pizza. The demanding presence of Lunsford’s voice, combined with the talent and charm of Quillen, Lipps, and Wood, makes for a high energy, inspiring performance that stays with you until the next time.

“Each show feels like it’s the next and last chance to explain ourselves –another chance to connect with the audience to speak our truth. We hope that people seeing us for the first time (and repeat viewers!) feel appreciated and comfortable and we hope they feel inspired by the tunes.” Lunsford, “The Young Folks”


Adar Seligman-McComas’ original music and lyrics emerge from that most deeply interior space in which language shifts and slides and sometimes speaks in opposites. Through metaphor, melody, and rhythm, private meanings become shared experience. From the most personal of places, she creates music that speaks to all of us.

Based in Charlottesville, VA, Adar formed her band, ADAR, in the summer of 2016, and shortly after, released her first album “The Rapids.” In early 2020, the band made the decision to rename themselves darzo to better represent the inclusive nature of the work--in which the music reaches its final form only with the contributions and ideas of its deeply involved and talented members.

darzo has electrified audiences with performances of genre-bending music that is not purely Soul, not simply R&B, nor straight-up Jazz. The band is currently in the process of releasing its first full-length album, which is expected to be available to the public in spring of 2020.
