Roanoke Wing Fest
With The Color J, Tobacco Apache, Erin & The Wildfire, Carrington Kay
Some of the valley’s strongest acts jam while you chow down. Hear funk, rock, blues and more.
Sidewinders Steakhouse & Saloon, in its months in business, is bringing in a steady diet of “on the verge” type acts who are working to make it in the world of country music. Coppley, from Lexington, N.C., is another one recording original neo-country music and touring the honky-tonks in hopes of breaking big. And like a lot of them, Coppley started out as a rocker before gravitating to country.
A unique indie-folk duo also has a unique band name story. According to the Richmond-based Lobo Marino’s website, Jameson Price and Laney Sullivan traveled to South America, where they saw a Pacific sea lion, known in Spanish as “el lobo marino.” The beast allowed a low growl in their direction, inspiring their band name and music. The pair, with guest musicians, made the album “Kite Festival” last year in front of a live audience.
From New Orleans via Brooklyn, N.Y., The Mumbles have a new third member, sax man and singer Ejric Bernhardt, and a new live album “... Last Night Wore The Crown.”
