“Spudnik is a lively, soulful rhythm section out of Charlottesville, VA. With roots in genres such as RnB, Soul, Jazz and Pop, the crew’s dedication to musicianship and good vibes leads them down new unexplored paths. They’ll take you on ride from the earthy troughs of potato farms to cosmonautical heights, while never straying from the pocket. Spudnik seeks to foster a collaborative and rich music scene by featuring local vocalists in each show. Come be a part of the movement.
“Coming back from a 10-year “mommy hiatus”, Yolonda is re-emerging onto public musical performance stages as Mother Jones Music. Her unique blend of undeniable gospel roots, alternative soul delivery (often compared to Lauryn Hill and Nina Simone), jazz and folkish influence make her a stunning virtuoso to experience. She writes and sings in, from and about power and love.
