Live Music Daily Presents
The Trongone Band
Richmond, VA @ The Broadberry – February 12, 2016 – Widespread Panic Afterparty
LiveMusicDaily is pleased to once again team up with one of our favorite rising talents in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area, The Trongone Band featuring special guest Jay Starling of Love Canon at the Broadberry in Richmond, VA following Widespread Panic‘s performance at The Altria Theater on Friday, February 12, 2016. Tickets to the Broadberry afterparty are available here ($10 adv, $12 dos).
The Trongone Band is a rock n roll outfit that lends itself to the sounds of classic rock, southern rock, and the improvisational spirit of a jamband. There is a lot of attention to the song itself, the story telling component.
This is going to be a straight up party. We are very excited to have Starling lay down some steel on our original music. Grab your tickets & don’t miss this one. Lots of surprises in store.” – Johnny Trongone
Rapidly gaining momentum with a sound that falls perfectly between southern Rock ‘n’ Soul and Americana Jam, The Trongone Band is turning heads and making an impact on the east coast music scene. Formed as a family and by brothers Andrew and Johnny with father John Sr. on bass, The Trongone Band enlisted much sought-after keyboardist Ben “Wolfe” White and quickly began packing various venues around Richmond, VA. With the addition of Wolfe, they entrenched their footprint on the city with a Thursday night residency at Cary Street Cafe, pushing the popular music room to maximum capacity for two straight years.
Spreading their musical wings, it wasn’t long before The Trongone Band procured a devout fan base and began making their name in neighboring cities, including sell-out shows in Blacksburg and Harrisonburg. Recently the band brought on award-winning bassist Todd Herrington to solidify their touring lineup. Herrington adds a crucialdimension of deep pocket groove and funk to the already seasoned unit.
As a collaborative effort, the band is set to push forward touring the East Coast and preparing for their full length debut album. This four-piece ensemble may not all be related, but with a chemistry so emphatically discernible, it’s fair to call them brothers.
