South Hill Banks
South Hill Banks
South Hill Banks – Lance Thomas (vocals, guitar), Eric Horrocks (mandolin, vocals), Ryan Horrocks (banjo), Dan Fiasconaro (guitar, vocals), and Matt Eversole (upright bass) – have carved a niche for themselves in the Richmond music scene with their genre-bending psychedelic bluegrass sound. Formed in August 2015 in Richmond, Virginia, South Hill Banks pulls from a wide range of influences such as Phish, Tony Rice, The Grateful Dead, and Doc Watson, Sam Bush, Greensky Bluegrass to keep audiences entertained with a blend of sounds old and new.

Since the release of their debut album, Riverside Dr., South Hill Banks have taken central Virginia by storm, headlining a multitude of small- and medium-sized venues and working aside national touring groups with a devoted and ever-growing fanbase following every step of the way.

South Hill Banks are currently performers-in-residence at The Camel in Richmond, Virginia, appearing on the 2nd Friday of every month. Be sure to stay tuned, as the band has big plans to make a name for themselves throughout the rest of Virginia and beyond in 2017.
Maradeen
Maradeen
The origins of Maradeen can be traced back to the town of Athens, GA when in 2009, guitarist/singer Whit Murray, joined the already established band, Mama's Love, fronted by singer/songwriter, Thomas Galloway. The two, along with the other members, performed consistently around the country for the next 2 and a half years building a devoted fan base and recording 2 albums with renowned producers such as Tom Tapley and John Keane.
During that time, they would on occasion share the stage with a younger band from Nashville, TN named Afro. Two of the members, keyboardist Kaitlyn Connor and drummer Ben Plewes, would eventually go on to round out the lineup of Maradeen.
In December of 2011, Whit decided to depart from Mama's Love in order to further his musical education in Boston at the Berklee College of Music. Galloway continued on with Mama's Love and the two remained in contact, sharing the stage whenever circumstances permitted.
In May of 2014, Murray completed his degree at Berklee and relocated back down south to Nashville, TN. Upon arrival, he reconnected with Kaitlyn, who introduced him to bassist Sterling Miller and the 3 started jamming.
Fresh off of touring as a drum tech for Lyle Lovett, Ben Plewes was brought in to fill the void for a drummer and the four began rehearsing steadily and playing local shows around Nashville.
In October of 2014, Thomas Galloway relocated to Nashville from Athens, GA to pursue songwriting and he and Whit began collaborating again. After months of writing, the 5 piece decided to book studio time to commence in March of 2015, and have been booking shows to launch their first ever Spring Tour.
The journey for Maradeen so far has been filled with positivity and excitement and the members are thrilled to enter their next phase of performing and spreading their music!
