Terry Brown and the Fire

Terry Brown and the Fire
Saturday 07/08/2017  
Terry Brown is a singer/entertainer that comes to the Roanoke Valley area from Wilmington, DE. Terry studied voice at Delaware State University and musical theater at the University of Delaware. He is currently the lead singer for “The Kings Band,” a featured singer with “Touch of Class Band” and the male lead vocalist for the “Sway Katz Big Band.” He is a student of various genre of music and has shared the stage with some of the finest musicians in the Valley and beyond.

“The Fire” is the result of collective thought and desire...a desire to bring “FIRE” whether it's in a smooth or rhythmic Jazz piece or a driving, Blues piece. Terry Brown says, “It's about the passion and being able to touch the souls of those in the audience.” The Fire is a collaboration by some of the region's most dynamic musicians...each brilliant in their own rite. The Fire consists of Brian Mesko (guitar), Glen Holmes (keyboard), Delmar Parker (drums), and Bob Bowen (bass). The music is an eclectic blend of Jazz, Blues, and R&B. The feel is a combination of nostalgic Vegas and that of a modern Jazz Festival.

Erin & The Wildfire

Erin & The Wildfire
Saturday 07/29/2017  
Rock, blues, folk, and soul had a baby and they named it Erin. She collected three of her most talented friends in 2012 and dubbed them The Wildfire, in reference to the fiery quality of their groove. Erin & The Wildfire is comprised of Erin Lunsford (vocals, acoustic guitar), Ryan Lipps (guitar), Matt Wood (bass), and Nick Quillen (drums). Erin is an award winning vocalist (1st place Winner of Charlottesville’s Paramount Idol 2013) and an award winning songwriter (1st place Winner in the 11th Annual Rapunzel’s Songwriting Contest) with the song “Best I’ve Ever Been.” This past summer, the band won the Rockn' to Lockn' competition and had the honor of playing on the final day of the 2014 Lockn' festival alongside Soja, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Willie Nelson, Wilco, Widespread Panic, and The Allman Brothers. Erin & The Wildfire was also featured in this year's CMJ Conference, The Festy Experience, and The Circus Life Festival.

Erin & The Wildfire has been described as a “local treasure” and their presence continues to grow throughout Central Virginia and up and down the east coast. In 2013, Erin & the Wildfire released their debut self-titled EP, which features poignant lyrics, dynamic energy, and sultry melodies. The EP track, “Best I’ve Ever Been” was also chosen as one of the best new songs of 2013 by WNRN Radio’s LocalMotive broadcast. This November, the band will be releasing three new tracks on the Blame the Rain Single, and will subsequently tour the northeast. The combination of Lunsford’s soulful and striking vocals with the Wildfire’s feverish intensity will start a flame in the heart of any listener.

Don't miss Erin & The Wildfire's triumphant return to Blue 5!
