Come see us at the Hampton History Museum! On the third Wednesday of each month, the museum hosts the "Front Porch Series" which highlights local musicians of various genres. The UnXpected is pleased to be holding it down on Nov. 18. Hope to see you there!
We are excited to be providing musical entertainment for the 3rd Annual Oyster Bash sponsored by the Rotary Club of Oyster Point. This fundraiser benefits the Smart Beginnings program of the Virginia Peninsula -- a non-profit that helps maximize early childhood development so Peninsula children will start kindergarten prepared.
We are thrilled to be part of this event and sharing the entertainment lineup with such great bands as Slapnation and The Deloreans. The UnXpected plays from 8:30-10:00 p.m. on the Taylor's Do It Center Stage. You won't want to miss this FREE event that is celebrating its 35th year!
Help us round out the summer with a bang! Join us at the 17th Street Stage on the waterfront in Va Beach for this Beach Street USA event!
We're returning to Prime 46Forty! Join us on the patio for some live blues and classic rock as we round out the summer in style!

“Perhaps it seems strange to hear the word experienced applied to a blues rock quartet whose members range in age from 14 to 19. But the band has played about 150 shows together since forming a little more than two years ago. Their repertoire digs into the roots of classic blues rock. "Uncovered" includes versions of Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" and Jimi Hendrix's incendiary "Voodoo Child." Anyone who has seen the band play knows that this is not some sort of cute novelty act — young kids tackling complex blues anthems. They are talented musicians who take the roots of this music very seriously. "Live music," Cole Layman said, "is what I prefer over everything else." Salsberry adds: "It's definitely better live, getting that huge crowd reaction when people get pumped up. Honestly, it's impossible to describe. I'm literally living my dream. I get to take what I'm passionate about, and get up on stage to share it."”
