Honky Tonk Thursdays

Featuring Ramona & The Holy Smokes

May 30 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Put on your boots and get ready to scoot across the dance floor! Every Thursday night from 7-9 pm we offer highly danceable country music from Redd Volkaert, the legendary telecaster slinger from Merle Haggard’s band, along with different musicians from around Southwest Virginia and the rest of the country. When Redd isn’t here we’ll have a substitute band that will keep the crowd dancing and smiling. If you enjoy honky tonk, Western swing, and good old classic country, you’ll want to join us on Thursday nights for some good food and a spacious dance floor. This is a donation-based event and all are welcome.

About Ramona & The Holy Smokes

“Central Virginia has its share of bluegrass and Americana music, but an old-school, authentic country movement is gaining momentum, thanks to Ramona & the Holy Smokes. Fronted by Ramona Martinez with a lineup that includes Kyle Lawton Kilduff (electric guitar), Brooks Hefner (pedal steel), Jay Ouypron (bass), and Porter Bralley (drums), the band plays honky-tonk originals in the vibe of Patsy Cline and George Jones. Martinez’s songwriting spans a range of colorful topics, including a smoking habit, ex-boyfriends, and her cat. Piloted by Nashville songwriter Harlan Howard’s “three chords and the truth” ethos, Ramona & the Holy Smokes have turned country music sneerers into believers.”
