    Villa*Nova

    Rock

    Villa*Nova turns rock 'n' roll upside down. Hailing from Columbia, SC, the band distills elements of funky pop and rock into a hypnotic hybrid. Villa*Nova prides itself on making music with solid grooves and soulful, dynamic lyrics provided by lead vocalist/guitarist/song writer BC Villa*Nova, fluid and funky bass lines by Bobby Dredd bombastic fantastic, rock solid drummer (and backing vocals) Young Sean, amazing harmony vocals and rhythm guitar by Brandon Hooker, and turntable wizadry and keyboards by DJ Able One.
    Their infectious sound has earned them thousands of fans nationwide. Villa*Nova, currently independent, was previously signed to Universal Republic (now Republic) and recorded their 2012 debut "WTF the EP" in LA with super producer Howard Benson (Papa Roach, Daughtry, Hoobastank, Seether) under the band name Weaving The Fate. They have shared the stage with everyone from Korn, Shinedown, Evanescence, Slash, AWOLNATION, Staind, Chevelle, Filter, Crossfade, Dirty Heads, Nappy Roots, REHAB, and the list goes on.
    They’ve been called contemporaries of break out bands such as AWOLNATION, Imagine Dragons, and Arctic Monkeys where heavy rebellion meets pop sensibilities.

    Toured the Southeast and Midwest on a 30+ city Jagermeister-sponsored tour as direct support for Crossfade, and performed two sold-out shows with Evanescence in Kansas City.

  • Lefty at The Washout

    Lefty at The Washout

    Surf Rock

    Lefty at the Washout didn’t begin as a band. The members were just having fun.

    “It started out as just wanting to have a good time, and hearing the songs we wanted to hear,” said Charles Wilkie, the band’s singer.

    The band’s early practices in 2007, a few held on Headliners’ stage and open to the public, was a way for the band to get together with friends. Almost two years later, Lefty at the Washout will release its debut CD, “Forty to Five.”

    And it sounds like a real band.

    Lefty, which includes Barry Hicks (drums), Rob Grookett (saxophone/keyboards), Jay Foster (bass), Jonohn Taylor (turntables) and Stan Laraque (guitar), plays a sun-soaked blend of reggae and rock. But there are also some heavier rock songs.

    The tunes were made for the beach, a day on the lake or for casting a line from a pier.

    “We have so many different influences,” Wilkie said. “The music is everywhere. And that’s the way we like it.”

    The music, it must be said, is also similar to the blue-eyed reggae of bands such as Slightly Stoopid.

    But Lefty separates itself by not taking its music too seriously. Songs such as “Can’t Come Out” and the title track are summed up by a line in the latter: “kickin’ back and enjoying this life.”

    And have you noticed the CD title?
