Talking Dreads - A Talking Heads Tribute, Reggae Style

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

Sounds familiar? Of course! And a dead giveaway as to what they’re throwing down! But what’s in store is so much more than a reggae-tribute of the Talking Heads’ top hits. Picture that famously funky frequency, picked up on the sunbathed beaches of Jamaica and put through a polyphonically Caribbean kaleidoscope!

You may think “this ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco, this ain’t no foolin’ around” music, and you’re right: this is serious… as in seriously good! A non-stop, fun-loving musical journey that’s as good for the head as it is for the soul. So get ready to get up, get set and get down as Talking Dreads take you joyriding in their tour-de-force debut!

“Reggae’s dance-inspiring, feel-good vibe is universal as are many of Talking Heads’ songs” – Mystic Bowie

“The combination of classic Heads lyrics and caribbean/reggae rhythms is a total home run! Talking Dreads’ sound is tight, and everyone from the lead singer to the band members to the back up singers to the folks selling Talking Dreads merchandise is 100% professional. We had a blast the night of the show and we walked away with a definite bounce in our step. Can’t wait for the next stop on their tour. Definitely going back for more.“

“Yes yes y’all!” – Chris Frantz

An Evening with Lyle Lovett and his Large Band

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

A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums over three decades. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of Americana, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Whether touring as a ‘Duo’ or with his ‘Acoustic Group’ or ‘The Large Band’, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers.

Ynot Wednesdays? The Fuzz Band

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

In the music business, melodically based offenses are considered especially heinous. In Virginia, the dedicated musicians that investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as The Fuzz Band. These are their stories…
The Fuzz Band, whose sound is a fusion of Urban & Rock music, met and formed while attending Hampton University. Originally created as the house band for Fuzzy Wednesday, Virginia’s longest running open mic, the band soon began collaborating on original music and developing their own sound. Performing first at local venues and colleges, the band soon released Without Boundaries, followed by Collision, Change, and a Change of the Guards. Several years, multiple albums, and three USO tours later, the band continues to shine.
