Happy New Year fellow rock fans! 2017 was a great year for the Sons! We had more gigs in 2017 than we've had in a single year and 2018 looks to break that record as well. We already have 18 gigs booked for 2018 including one in Richmond, VA next month! We have been working on some new songs lately and we may have found a place to lay down some of these new tracks this spring! We plan to debut the new tunes at upcoming gigs, so be sure to come out and hear them before they hit iTunes! Thank you so much to all of you, our fans! We love playing rock and roll for you and we hope you continue to enjoy what we're doing.

WOW. What a great turnout we had on what may very well have been the coldest day of the month for our Strong Oaks Woodshop Benefit at the Virginia Beer Museum. Thanks to all the great folks who braved the sub freezing temperatures, we raised over $900 for that amazing business! Winter is coming and the Sons are NOT slowing down. We have FIVE gigs in December (check the shows page for details) and we've done some upgrades to our studio and we plan to start recording some new material for release in early next year as well Stay tuned, great things ahead...

Thanks to everyone who joined us to raise money for the NOVA Veterans Association at the Shenandoah Valley Biketoberfest! We had a blast, raised a lot of money, and we're told we'll be doing it again next year! The band has some new songs that we are about to start working on getting into our sets, so be on the look out for that. Our next big event is a benefit for The Strong Oaks Woodshop in Front Royal. They had a devastating fire this spring that took everything from them and are throwing a party to raise money to help them rebuild on Verterans Day, November 11th The great folks at the Virginia Beer Museum in Front Royal have offered their place to have this benefit, so we hope you can join us to raise money for a great local business that could use some help. MOre details on our shows page. In the meantime, we're back at Brewbakers and Spanky's Shenanigans this month! See you soon.

Wow, it has been a busy time for the Sons! Charlie has been crushing it as our new drummer and we've had six gigs over the last month with him. On top of that, we had our first airplay on traditional radio on 98Rock out of Harrisonburg, VA! We are showing no signs of slowing down with nine more scheduled gigs as of now through the end of the year, AND we are booking into summer of NEXT year. We've been adding new covers at almost every rehearsal and we're gaining fans every week! Thank you to everyone for coming out to our shows and supporting local music! See you at the next show!

Happy belated 4th of July to you all! The Sons have been busy with family and friends celebrating our nation's independence as we hope you all have as well. We've also been working on finding a new drummer as Adam has had to step away from the band. Adam is a great drummer and friend and we wish him all the best. His drumming on Ride Off Again was nothing short of spectacular and we will be forever grateful for his contributions on our debut album. After a month of auditions, we've found our new drummer. We hope you'll come out and welcome Charlie Fultz to the band at his first show with us on July 14th in Leesburg!

We are thrilled to announce our new Go Fund Me campaign has kicked off! Randy and Shawn have been writing continuously since Ride Off Again was recorded and we have many more songs in store for you! We've learned some things along the way about the time, money and effort needed to get an album out to the masses, so this time we're asking YOU for some help. Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated, but we do have reward levels set for our most generous of fans! Click "Donate" on the GoFundMe widget now to help us out!
We had a great time playing all our Apple Blossom gigs again this year, and we got some great fan feedback along the way. Keep checking out our shows page to see when we're playing near you next! We are ALWAYS booking new shows!

We're very excited to welcome a great new musician to the band. Rob Wolfe has taken over the bass duties and has also added some great backing harmonies to our shows.
We've been busy setting up some new gigs and writing some new songs. We're hoping to release a new single sometime early this summer, but we may add some of the new tunes to our set lists coming up, so be sure to head over to the "SHOWS" page and see when we're playing near you next! Our next gig is a private event, but then we'll be in Winchester for two Apple Blossom Gigs. Those gigs are always a great time. So we'll see you at the Wine Fest and the Night Fest during Apple Blossom week!

Happy New Year to you all! What a CRAZY past few months. Insane politics aside, the Sons have at least one gig a month through May so far, and we aren't even done with January yet! We'll be back for a couple gigs at the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival, and we're pushing for even more outdoor festival gigs this year. We're always working on new material, and we've added our first fan suggested and voted cover, Radio Nowhere, to our list of tunes we play. We also added a few other new covers to the mix recently, so if it's been awhile since you've seen us, come to an upcoming show!
