Live Music with Virginia Ground at 5506′ Skybar
June 1 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Virginia Ground categorizes their sound in one word: Appalachiaphonic. It’s a funky melodic marriage rooted in soul, blues, bluegrass, reggae, country, Dixieland, jazz, rock, Americana, swing and more. When Jamen Denton’s fountainesque songwriting collides with his ensemble of inventive musicians; Jon McGlocklin singing harmony vocals, Logan Fritz on bass and vocals, Justin Denton on drums, Ben Smith on harmonica, Will Outlaw on trombone, Ian Feathers on trumpet and James Bowman on keys,they create a sound that is infectiously novel yet still familiar. The band’s music has and always will pay homage to the rich traditions that have long filtered through their part of Appalachian mountains from all over the world.
5506′ Skybar is a family friendly environment offering a variety of beverages and snacks as well as beautiful panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The show is free. 5506′ can be accessed by a scenic lift ride. Tickets can be purchased on-site at Ski Beech Sports. There is no parking or drop off location for 5506′.
