This Zydeco-flavored blues band from Durham brings its mojo to Blue 5 for a special show. Melton's trademark zydeco style of harp playing has been influenced from his past in music rich cities as Lafayette (Louisiana), Austin, and Chicago. Melton has played with the great slide guitar legend Sonny Landreth and opened for stars such as Ray Charles, BB King, Dr John, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Come down to Blue 5 to experience a show that will make you feel like you are at a big party in the Louisiana bayou....
Kyle Forry and Justin Arnett
Kyle Forry and Justin Arnett were both born and raised in Franklin County, Virginia. They began playing and writing songs together in high school and have largely shared the same musical journey in the 15 years since. Their music intertwines acoustic roots, Americana, rock, reggae, and soul.
Since Barefoot West began performing in bars, festivals, and venues in Southwest Virginia eight years ago, they haven’t stopped to take a breath. Their numerous public performances and local popularity led to them being voted “Best Local Band” by Laker Magazine every year from 2010 to 2013. They even appeared in Lake Effects, a 2012 film which was shot at nearby Smith Mountain Lake and televised nationally and internationally. Most recently, Kyle and Justin opened for Southern Ground Recording Artist, Levi Lowrey and Zac Brown Band member, Clay Cook on opening night at the Harvester Performance Center in their hometown of Rocky Mount, VA.
