M.H. & HIS ORCHESTRA

One could easily throw a “musical chairs” allusion into the description of this group: from a one man project to a 44 piece orchestra then finally resting as a ten person touring band– it’s impossible to escape the notion that this has shaped what Sounds of RVA calls their “ever-shifting wall of sound”. M.H. stands for Max Holiday, the composer, lyricist & singer behind M.H. & His Orchestra- with an age-defying, sincerely insincere croon he leads the grand orchestrations (dubbed “Orchestral Back-Beat”) through terrain less travelled in modern pop.

ATOKA CHASE

Atoka Chase is a road. Atoka Chase is a duo. Atoka Chase is the place you find yourself after drinking just enough whiskey to realize you’ve been conversing with the Devil. And Devil be damned if you’ve ever seen a show like this one. This powerful boy/girl duo (and more recently quartet) has been setting the local stage alight with their mixture of dark, haunting harmonies, and songs that seem to tug at you from somewhere deep inside. With a variety of instruments at their disposal and an energy that emerges only once the lights have gone down, this band is surely a sight to be seen. Together they weave catchy dirt ditties like Southern Gothic fairy-tales — Be your drink cider or whiskey, they’re the perfect mixture of something dark and fiery on a cold winter’s night.

Or as the wonderful blog Listen Local First has described them: “Banjos…”
