Formed in 2006, South29
has been performing in the Central - Southwestern Virginia area,
providing their mix of Blues, Classic Rock and Funk to Clubs and
private events. South29
has some familiar faces to those in the Central Virginia blues scene.
Both Jason Ward, and Eric Hollandsworth are regional
veterans, and Chase Tanner, just getting back into the scene
after a 4 year absence, is a fixture at local blues jams.
Drummer Jason Ward brings 15 years of experience
to the S29 rhythm
section. Jason's most recent projects include The Chris
Winter Band and two years of live performances with Eli Cook &
The Red House Blues Band, playing every smoky bar from DC to
Danville. He also contributed to the band placing 2nd in both
2004-2005 BLUES FEST Competitions hosted by the James River
Blues Society and also appears on Eli's first recording
effort, Moonshine Mojo.
Bassist Eric “Big E” Hollandsworth has performed
and recorded with several regional acts, including Roadhouse, Eli
Cook & The Redhouse Blues Band, Jacki B and the Backburners, and
as of late, with the Rubs Tuesday Night Blues Jam anchor band
John Doe and the Nobodies, and from Richmond, Kevin Selfe
and the Tornadoes.
Chase Tanner has been touted by local
and national blues acts as the “next up and comer” on the electric
guitar. With a nod to past greats Vaughan, Clapton, Hendrix
and an eye to the grandfathers of Blues Guitar, Chase’s style
has been called “a mixture of youthful exuberance and a soulfulness
beyond his years.” Chase has been a guest of John Doe and
the Nobodies, and recently performed with the Jam Band the
Tendencies in the Lynchburg/Bedford areas.
Cutting right through the heart of Virginia,
South29 leaves its audiences
awash in a simmering blend of blues, funk, and rock. A trio of
classically trained and unchained musicians,
South29 lays down tracks
channeling the great power trios, with their own style of
right-between-the-eyes riffs. Playing Roanoke, Lynchburg,
Charlottesville and the surrounding areas,
South29 will leave you
wanting nothing but more.

The Biscuit Rollers
Staunton, VA -
Biscuit Rollers was
formed in early 2006 as an outlet for
the creative energy of its members, who grew tired of playing in "just
another cover band" bands. We are a three piece "Old Time Blues Music"
band composed of
(vocals and percussion),
Jack "Poor Boy"
resonator guitar, lap steel, electric guitar, harp) and
(acoustic and electric guitar, lap steel, acoustic bass, harp, backup
vocals), and we are just breaking into the blues club scene. Our hope
is that The Biscuit Rollers will be an avenue for keeping Old
Time Blues Music alive for people that appreciate the music, and for
bringing that uniquely
American roots music to life for a new generation of listeners.
We play a stripped down version of the Blues, with a
truly unique hard-driving road house/juke joint sound. Our
performances feature our own special arrangements of the fingerpickin
blues of Robert Johnson, and Mississippi John Hurt, the
electric blues of the music of John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy
Waters, Elmore James, and other groundbreaking blues musicians, as
well as more contemporary blues artists like Robert Cray, Tom
Principato, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and others.
Accomplished, mature, multitalented (and
multi-instrumental!) musicians, we jam on these tunes, we get down,
get loose, and get funky with Old Time Blues Music, making it groove
with our own special concoction of rhythm, pace, and feeling. We
figure, if you ain't dancing to it, we ain't doing our job -- Our
music is true, made from scratch and tasty, just like your
grandmother's flaky buttermilk biscuits! The Biscuit Rollers
can be reached at
play at your club.
