The Pollocks

The Pollocks are led by Jason Pollock, former guitarist and songwriter for Seven Mary Three. In the mid 1990s, Jason penned such hits as "Cumbersome" and "Water's Edge", sold a few million albums, and toured extensively. His new band was formed in 2014, when a friend told him that he needed to get back into the game, and present to the public his catalog of songs that had been piling up. The music can best be described as American rock, with the right amount of soul: The Rolling Stones meets Jefferson Airplane. There's some Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, The Beatles and Neil Young thrown in for good measure. The psychedelic South, in three part harmony...

Pat Anderson

Food truck: The SpiceSea Gourmet

All eleven cuts on Pat Anderson's “Magnolia Road” reflect Anderson’s personal background (born in Oklahoma and raised hard by the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains) and his self- described “healthy obsession” with American roots music. While he often performs live solo, armed only with acoustic guitar and harmonica, a stellar Nashville backing band helps fill out the record with a resonating Americana vibe owing as much to Tom Petty and Lynyrd Skynyrd as it does to more typical touchstones of that genre Steve Earle, T-Bone Burnett, and Ryan Adams.
