Love Canon:

Organized by: Brian & Susan Wortman and Jeff & Sheryl Earnhardt
Description: Think Rocky IV, Cyndi Lauper, ZZ Top, Aha and Dire Straits played with banjo, mandolin and high lonesome vocals. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you dance, it'll "blind you with science!" "Love Canon doesn't cover the music of the '80s as much as kidnap it and take it on a bluegrass-tinged joyride. It's a general rule of American culture that it takes 20-40 years for a decade to shed its stale stench and get its groove back. There's no shortage of clever musical re-enactors giving the first generation of MTV an ironic makeover: a fool's errand, given that the music already was soaked in postmodern irony. By contrast, Love Canon refreshes and extends the originals with affectionate humor and effortless virtuosity.

Wes Iseli's Illusion & Magic Show featuring Natalie:

Friday, June 27, 2014

Time: 8:00 pm
Location: The State Theatre
Address: 305 S. Main Street, Culpeper, VA, 22701
Description: Wes Iseli has been doing magic since he was 7 years old. Wes currently works at resorts, country clubs, theatres, trade shows, company picnics, and high school auditoriums all over the East Coast. He still enjoys doing the smaller shows such as private parties and family reunions. Wes says he couldn't think of a better career choice; it never gets old performing all over and entertaining thousands of people each month. Wes Iseli also keeps himself in the public eye by performing such effects as accurately predicting the headline of a national newspaper one month in advance or by his amazing escape effects. As in the case of letting the audience tie him up completely with 100 feet of rope during his live show. Wes also survived a 24 hour magic show in December of 2007, 08, 09 & 10, where he raised money for The Children's Miracle Network performing 72 magic shows in 24 hours.

The Nighthawks with special guest Bob Margolin:

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Time: 8:00 pm
Location: The State Theatre
Address: 305 S. Main Street, Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Raven Yates & David Harris
Description: The Nighthawks sought not so much to reinvent rock and roll, but simply to have it reinvent itself by taking the original ingredients and following - if somewhat loosely - the original recipe. And like good cooks, the individual personalities involved ultimately affected the outcome. The band was over 10 years old and had baffled the mainstream industry before the term "roots rock" was coined to explain the likes of West Coasters like Los Lobos and The Blasters. By then, the affiliation with many of the living blues greats seemed to brand The Nighthawks a "blues band," despite the fact that they played with Carl Perkins as well as Muddy Waters. This special show includes Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin, former member of the Muddy Waters band!

Rhonda Vincent, The Queen of Bluegrass:

Friday, November 21, 2014

Time: 7:30pm
Location: The State Theatre
Address: 305 S. Main Street, Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Gravatt Entertainment
Description: Bluegrass vocalist and fiddler Rhonda Vincent began her professional music career at the age of five, playing drums with her family's band, the Sally Mountain Show. She picked up the mandolin at eight and the fiddle at ten, performing with the family band at festivals on weekends. After appearing on TNN's nationally televised You Can Be a Star program in her mid-twenties, Vincent struck out on her own, singing with the Grand Ole Opry's Jim Ed Brown, eventually leading to a deal with Rebel Records. Her work with Brown and her Rebel recordings caught the attention of Giant Nashville's president, James Stroud, who signed Vincent to record two contemporary country albums. After her time at Giant, she moved to Rounder Records, and demonstrated her passion for the traditional music she grew up with, on Back Home Again.
