Last Call Band

Last Call Band

Last Call Band is a 3 piece ensemble from Richmond, VA. 

Kent Alley - Lead Vocal/Rhythm Guitar 

Chris Legnaioli - Lead Vocal/Bass Guitar 

Mike Guza - Lead Guitar/Vocals

Chris, Paul and Kent all played in a local band called Sketch that was the house band at The Bus Stop Restaurant in Shockoe Slip (now part of Sam Miller’s) and later house band at Renegades in The West End (Kent had left the band at that point). Mike and Kent worked as a duo, then a trio with Chris to form Last Call – the name references the fact that we are all in our 60s so this band is for us “The Last Call” musically speaking.

Musical material is drawn from what we know and love best; The Beatles, Van Morrison, The Eagles, The Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd and various other songs from the 60s through the 80s. The band plays steady dates at local venues Sunset Grill in Manakin and The Pour House at Short Pump as well as private events and local country clubs, most notably Hermitage.

THE JANGLING REINHARTS

https://www.facebook.com/The-Jangling-Reinharts-133791346722828/

https://www.reverbnation.com/janglingreinharts/

THE JANGLING REINHARTS came together to provide roots-rock music largely forgotten by other bands. Think: The Band meets Van Morrison and they go out to Stephen Stills' house and listen to the Monkees while watching a Barenaked Ladies video. This melting pot of music describes what they are all about. THE JANGLING REINHARTS mix popular cover songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s (along with the occasional TV theme song…just to see who's listening). Beautiful vocal harmonies, superb finger-style on the lead guitar, and a knack for playing the right song at the right time set THE JANGLING REINHARTS apart from the rest. THE JANGLING REINHARTS normally perform as a four-piece band, including two guitarists, bass, and drums, each of whom contribute vocals as well. Also available is an acoustic duo or trio version of the band for a more laid-back event, or just for an opening set to gradually get the evening started. Either way, you still get a great sound with a huge variety of songs you know and love. The Reinharts were selected co-Best Wedding Band in Richmond by voters in Richmond Magazine's 2014 year-end poll, and were selected outright in 2015.

Dennis Elliot Fiddler

Dennis is an amazing fiddle player and is involved in many musical projects

Dennis plays all Fiddle, Mandolin, Banjo & Guitar parts on His album Fiddler’s Dream.

Fiddler’s Dream is a collection of 17 instrumental tunes mostly from the Bluegrass and Old-Time repertoire. Being from Louisiana, I also included the tune “Jolie Blon”, so you can count ’Cajun Music in there as well! Those who know my playing style well will hear many other stylistic musical influences in my solos that are way beyond the 3 styles mentioned above – yet Fiddler’s Dream is first and foremost a Fiddle-Tune album.

I enjoy singing no matter where I am and no matter who is listening. I am also quite passionate about my guitar playing as it brings me a lot of joy.  I work hard to get better every day.

My original songs are always about something I’ve personally experienced and you can find them on every streaming site. I hope you enjoy my music!

Diamond Heist performs songs from throughout Neil Diamond’s storied career, including “Cracklin’ Rosie,” “Solitary Man,” "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon," “I Am, I Said,” “Love on the Rocks,” "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," and, of course, “Sweet Caroline.” Formed in 2014, the band continues to expand its repertoire with suggestions from fans, who are always encouraged to bring their own flags to wave during "America" and lyric sheets to sing along.

The Taters

https://www.facebook.com/pg/thetaters/about/?ref=page_internal

The Taters play Roots-pop: an eclectic mix of roots-rock, power-pop, country, and Americana, a sound that's been described as "Country roots-pop with the genius songwriting of 60's & 70's power-pop, …a curious mix of Mavericks, Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and Beatles" (CDBaby). Billboard magazine calls it "American roots-rock with thoroughly modern, totally hip sensibilities". No Depression magazine describes it like this: "Think 'Beatles For Sale' if Marty Robbins were a primary influence instead of Carl Perkins." The Washington Post says the Taters "Successfully combine the best elements of Buddy Holly with the vocal harmonies of the Everly Brothers."

The Tater Brothers
When Craig Evans and Brad Tucker started singing together in the early 1980's, neither could have guessed how long that partnership would last. With "Taters PARTY", the band's 6th CD release, they continue to mine their collective experience to craft songs with unforgettable hooks and pop melodies, and to add classic tunes to their repertoire that reflect a wide range of interests and influences. Layers of acoustic and electric guitars mix with 3 and 4 part harmonies to give each song its own personality while the lead vocals and songwriting pull it all together into a very satisfying whole.

What's all this about Taters?
Writing in Billboard magazine, the internationally published "bible" of the music industry, critic Gordon Ely described the Taters as "determinedly-and gleefully-forging a path with no limits or end in sight. This is music for which you've been waiting a long, long time... Without a trace of self-consciousness or pretension, the Taters draw up a formula that can rightly be claimed as their own". 

The Taters soar through a catalog of Americana and '60s-era pop influences that color their own material brightly and tightly 
- Richmond Times- Dispatch

"The connection between singer-bassist Craig Evans and guitarist Brad Tucker goes back more than 20 years. That kind of knowledge and interplay is responsible for the crisp harmonies and infectious hooks of the band's old school roots-pop"
- Durham Herald-Sunn

The Taters’ Menagerie is full of noteworthy hooks and melodies as the band crosses genres and eras exhibiting their obvious Americana and classic pop influences. All in all, it’s obvious that The Taters want you to know that their music can be both memorable in concert as well as “Fun at Home”. If you've never listened to The Taters' Menagerie, listen to it. If you've already listened to it . . . listen again.
