Dangermuffin at The Historic Star Theatre

Oct 12

October 12, 2024 - 7:00 PM 10:00 PM -- Historic Star Theatre. While it may be futile to try to define Dangermuffin’s sound, it is possible to pinpoint the themes that inspire much of the band’s music, and perhaps no theme is as prominent and consistent as nature, including the ocean, the sun, and the mountains...all ancient and powerful and capable of immeasurable and profound healing. These ideas, running like threads through almost every Dangermuffin album, together form the basis of some of the band’s most deeply held principles and teachings: respect the earth, stay open to the universe, and strive for healing. According to lyricist Dan Lotti, if Dangermuffin’s music could accomplish just one thing, it would be to heal. The vocal-centric songs are delivered both via acoustic string band arrangements (think Greensky Bluegrass) and a drum-fueled groovy & fiery jam-influenced arrangement (think Goose), often within the same show! For the band and fans alike, this has led to some of Dangermuffin’s most inspired, exciting, and surprising performances of its career. One Family Productions. October 12, doors: 7pm, music: 8pm Tickets are $20 in adv, $25 at the door. Tickets coming soon.
The Historic Star Theatre - 318 Patrick Avenue - Stuart, VA

The Dirk Quinn Band at the Historic Star Theatre 

Oct 18

October 18, 2024 - 7:00 PM 10:00 PM -- The Historic Star Theatre. Dirk Quinn is the guitarist for the jazz/funk band that coincidentally bears his name. Based out of Philadelphia, the group travels extensively throughout the US and Canada. Utilizing over a decade of steady performing, they've developed a unique and sincere style - one that appeals to a wide variety of music listeners with fans ranging from the beard stroking jazz aficionados to the jam band hippies. The band’s infectious energy and musical interplay routinely attract listeners that are admittedly more accustomed to lyric-based music. With great melodic sensibilities, rhythmic experimentation and an accessible modern edge, the Dirk Quinn Band is jazz/funk improvisation at its most engaging! One Family Productions. October 18, doors: 7pm, music: 8pm Tickets are $10 in adv, $12 at the door. Tickets coming soon.

Rebecca Porter and The Rhinestone Roses at The Historic Star Theatre

Nov 9

November 9, 2024 - 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM - The Historic Start Theatre. A singer-songwriter born in Guam and raised in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia; Rebecca Porter continues to forge her way in country music with songs that balance her distinctive storytelling with the dynamics of her commanding voice in a unique display of soulful classic country. ?A lifelong innate connection to music guided Porter into performing live as a young adult. Through a decade’s worth of live performance with Harrisonburg-Rockingham County area musicians, Porter learned the ropes of life as a performing and recording artist. When her work in cover bands came to a pause after the birth of her first child, Porter found herself stumbling through parenting an infant during a global pandemic. The pandemic and motherhood left Porter yearning for the return to connection and music. Porter transformed her pandemic loneliness into two EPs - “Prime Rainbow Conditions” and 2023’s “Queen of the Local”, the latter of which was successfully crowdfunded based on Porter's formidable regional power. Porter tours extensively around her home state of Virginia, and steadily increasing forays outside the state, commanding stages up and down the East Coast. With completely independent legwork, her EP is making rounds nationally and internationally. One Family Productions. November 9, doors: 7pm, music: 8pm Tickets are 10 in adv, $12 at the door. Tickets coming soon.

Into The Fog at The Historic Star Theatre

Nov 22

November 22, 2024 - 7:00 PM 10:00 PM - Historic Star Theatre. Winners of the 2021 MerleFest band competition, Into The Fog is a psychedelic jamgrass band from Raleigh, North Carolina that combines timeless songwriting with progressive instrumentation and tight harmonies. The group consists of Brian Stephenson (acoustic guitar), Winston Mitchell (mandolin), Derek Lane (upright bass), and Connor Kozlosky (electric guitar), with everyone contributing on vocals. The band’s members have varied musical backgrounds that range from bluegrass to funk, which helps create Into The Fog’s genre-jumping sound. The band has released two studio albums and one live record, Volume One, which was released in 2023 and showcases their updated sound with Kozlosky. Live shows are a keystone of the Into The Fog experience, as the band expands songs to highlight their instrumental prowess and push the boundaries of the newgrass sound. The band is set to level up in 2024, with bigger headlining shows and a new album in the works. Into The Fog has shared the stage with the likes of Sam Bush, Keller & the Keels, Town Mountain, Daniel Donato, Jon Stickley Trio, Big Richard, and The Grass is Dead, while hitting festivals like FloydFest, Rooster Walk, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Earl Scruggs Music Fest, The Big What?, Front Porch Fest, as well as being Official Showcase artists at IBMA in 2023.
