Kevin Mac Live

97.3 Eagles Nest Virginia Beach
600 Nevan Rd
Virginia Beach, VA  23451 (Map)

Before a single note leaves his lips or one chord is strummed from
his acoustic guitar, Kevin Mac convinces you to love him. His style
is refreshing and honest. His words speak of love, heartache,
happiness, and appreciating the small things while his fingers confirm
that each song tells a story of the life he’s lived by way of his guitar.

Kevin’s opened for industry heavy hitters Martina McBride, Phil
Vassar, Darryl Worley and has gotten a nod from Kenney Chesney,
who he also opened up for in some 2008 concerts.

Born in King George County, VA, Mac was bred on country/bluegrass
music and raised in the church. He began his career as a radio
personality and deejay in Virginia, which led to opportunities for him
to perform.

The formula is far from complex, Kevin Mac just needs his guitar
and an audience—be it two or two thousand. “I’m a simple guy. I
feed off of the energy from the crowd and I love to tell a story,” said
Mac. “There’s nothing that makes me happier; I just try to be a good
man, be kind and not take the gift I’ve been given for granted. If I
can make one person smile and forget about their problems then I’ve
done something great.”

***Tickets on Sale Friday, November 17 at 10am ***
The Black Jacket Symphony offers a unique concert experience through recreating classic albums in a live performance setting. A selected album is performed in its entirety by a group of handpicked musicians specifically selected for each album, with no sonic detail being overlooked--the musicians do whatever it takes to musically reproduce the album - in this case, it’s Tom Petty’s Damn The Torpedoes

The performance is separated into two sets. The first set features Tom Petty’s Damn The Torpedoes being recreated as a true symphonic piece. The second set, which features a selection of Tom Petty's "greatest hits," opens in full contrast to the first set with an incredible light display and the symphony being much more laid back. The tone is set very quickly that the show will feature the high level of musicianship of the act being covered and will also be accompanied by all the bells and whistles of a major rock and roll show.

Virginia Beach’s Bennett Wales & the Relief are living proof that raw talent, ambition & honesty can still prevail in an ailing music industry. The bands musical discoveries take flight with a compelling combination of rich pop layers & mixed stylings of rhythm & blues, rock & Americana. By melding hook-filled melody within groove-able rhythms, Bennett Wales & the Relief show their ability to compact a vast array of influence & experience into a singular & distinct sound.
Together the quintet provides a vast amount of influences & gifts a broadened door of multiple genre stylings to music enthusiasts & listeners alike. Some of the top band influences consist of: Alabama Shakes, Chris Stapleton, The Meters, Little Feat, Black Joe Lewis & the Honey Bears, Vulfpeck & Black Angels.
Though Bennett Wales & his musicians have spent a lifetime saturated in music, song writing & performance, it is the release of the debut album (October 21, 2017) that will mark their true musical introduction to the world. The album was recorded in April at a Blue Ridge Mountain cabin retreat-turned-music studio with engineer, Chris Utley (Steven Tyler, John Mayer & more) of Benchmark Sound off Music Row in Nashville. As a very young band, they are experiencing a quickly blossoming career of festival bookings, one off shows & regional tours.

They have already shared the the stage with some notable national acts such as: The Record Company, Anderson East, Sister Sparrow, Rusted Root, Ripe, Ocean Blue, Peoples Blues of Richmond, Kai Mani Marley, Red Man & Method Man. Additionally, over 2000 copies have been sold from pre-album singles with no major distribution & the group has formed enough of a regional fan base to directly finance their freshman album themselves.

Jesse Chong is a performing songwriter and musician based in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He is one of the most well known and respected artists in the regional scene. Not only does Jesse perform regularly as a solo artist, but he sits in with a variety of musicians in the area and plays with his own ensemble known as the “Chong Band”.
Jesse has officially self-produced and released three albums- two of which are available through his website, CD Baby, and ITunes. Chong has been a consistent headliner on the area’s main stages and festivals, and is a staple of the local music scene.
Jesse is known for his musical versatility and genre blending. What may one night be a reggae band can be a rock or funk act the next. Chong’s solo show consists of acoustic guitar and the phenomenon of live looping- a skill which gives him the ability to be a one man band. His great original music and encyclopedic knowledge of cover songs have kept him one of the busiest working musicians anywhere.
The chameleon-like Chong has opened for varied artists across the spectrum. The Wailers, Snoop Dogg, Maroon 5, INXS, Willie Nelson, Neville Brothers, Stephen Marley, Dark Star Orchestra, Leon Russell and Derek Trucks are just a few. Chong’s musical style is often compared to Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Ben Harper/Jack Johnson, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Marley.

The Chieftains with Paddy Moloney

Sandler Center for the Performing Arts
201 Market St
Virginia Beach, VA  23462 (Map)

No other ensemble so captures the music traditions of Ireland than the legendary Chieftains, and no other has done more to explore the Irish roots of music around the world. In their 56th year, the Chieftains are still led by their founder, the great Paddy Moloney, who weaves melodies on such traditional instruments as the tin whistle and the Uilleann pipes, and sets feet tapping with the Irish drum, the bodhrán. Celtic music lovers will find the perfect reason to start celebrating St. Patrick’s Day early when this six-time Grammy Award-winning ensemble comes to the Sandler Center!... See MoreSee Less
