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.

The Northerners
The Northerners
As The Northerners mix the sentimental sounds of classic rock and roll with twists of modern folk and gritty contemporary blues. While far from being classified as a "jam band", The Northerners keep their audiences on their toes by intertwining both improvised and composed interludes between songs – every show is guaranteed to be unique. The only things one can expect going into a Northerners show on any given night are outstanding displays of musicianship, impeccably crafted original songs, commanding vocals, and an extraordinarily energetic show.
