The Java Brothers Bluegrass Band is from Radford, Virginia. We are progressive, but pretty much only to the extent that we'll play new songs as hard driving bluegrass. We love Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, The Seldom Scene, JD Crowe, Tony Rice, Sam Bush, the Country Gentlemen, the Beatles, the Stones, and all the greats. The Java Brothers have a fun live show that mixes standard Bluegrass and Newgrass with fiery original tunes.
The Newport Jamboree is scheduled for every 4th Saturday, June-September at the Village of Newport Community Park in Newport (1.3 miles on route 42, on the right). The local Ruritan chapter will be selling concessions...and be sure to bring a lawn chair. We will ask $5 donation from each adult to cover the bands and park fee-kids under 12 get in free. Rain or shine! Invite your friends and neighbors! TBA
