Kendall Street Company
Kendall Street Company
Kendall Street Company was founded in the early months of 2013 by guitarist/vocalist Louis Smith and saxophonist Andrew Drehoff. The duo had been playing together for some time in the greater Virginia Beach area, joined by a rotation of talented musicians who performed behind Louis as the Louis Smith Band. After moving to Charlottesville in late 2012 to attend the University of Virginia, the pair began putting together a group of student musicians, adding Brian Roy on bass/vocals and Ryan Wood on drums/percussion in early 2013 and Price Gillock on keyboards and Bucky Henry on auxiliary percussion later that year.

The band performs regularly in Virginia and throughout the East Coast, maintaining a central presence in the Charlottesville area, which includes live radio performances on WTJU 91.1 and WNRN 91.9 and a debut EP recorded at Blue Sprocket Sound in Harrisonburg, Virginia. While Kendall Street Company's music is influenced by a variety of musicians and styles, the group has been described as "psychedelic," "alternative," "jammy," "rock," "indie," and "ska." It is not uncommon for guest performers to join the group on stage for extended jams.
Adar
Adar
Powerhouse vocalist and songwriter, Adar, is based out of Charlottesville, Virginia. She formed her band, "Adar", in the summer of 2016, and has since gathered an enthusiastic following with her compelling original songs and her charismatic performances. "Adar" draws from a deep well of original compositions, and introduces new takes on covers that transcend genres from Soul, Funk, Jazz, Rock, and more. She released her first EP, The Rapids, in March, 2017. It is available on iTunes, Google Music, and Spotify.

Reviewing The Rapids, Nick Rubin of the C-Ville Weekly, wrote, "On The Rapids, classic soul sonics give way to balladry as well as touches of reggae and Cubanismo. Her band delivers tasty trumpet and organ solos and whining steel guitar; Adar’s lyrics are sensorily rich with flavors and textures, and...production sets everything in the right space.”
