Kerosene Willy

December 22, 2023 @ 8:00 pm

$5 cover ~

We are thrilled to have Kerosene Willy on our stage for the first time! This band is Freestyle Rock ‘n’ Roll Roots Music at its finest. With roots in the jam and blues scene in St. Louis, KW has been churning up grooves for more than a quarter century. A blend of Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country, Bluegrass, Funk, and World Beat, the Willy has been doing
the “Jam-Band” thing since there was barely a term. A set of KW is an eclectic and improvisatory boogieing blend of organic spontaneity that takes the audience on a journey through a ménage of sound and color, space and time. Every show is unique. Every show is different. And every show brings an experience blended from the soulful and powerful delivery of well-crafted original music and choice covers.

The group boasts an all-star cast of seasoned musicians:

Dave “Chopper” Campbell, guitar and vocals, formerly of Dark Star Orchestra, Dancing Earth Reunion (Blue Dixie), Haw Patch
Mountain Boys, The Schwag, and has also played with such greats as Rock founder and legend Chuck Berry, Grammy winning artist Jim Lauderdale, and Mike Gordon of Phish.

Robert Grice, bass, has played with The Seed (voted best Roanoke band 2006) High Street, Rockafellers Blues
Band, Brock Butler Quintet, and Maco Station.

John McBroom, guitar and vocals, formerly of Red Weather until 1999, Blue Mule, GOTE, M.C. Broom & The Jam! Recently Leonard Blush
and the Camelcals has taken a bit of John’s stage time, and he has shared the stage with Keller Williams, members of Leftover Salmon, members of Big Daddy Love, and Caitlin Krisko.

Timbo Sims, keyboardist, performer, and songwriter, of The ThrillBillyz,  The Buck and Griz Show, and M.C. Broom & The Jam! resides in Franklin County, VA. Timbo is a founding member of the 90’s jam band Red Weather and has since been a part of a number of live
performances, session recordings, and musical projects.

John Tice, on drums, has been bringing the back beat to Southwest Virginia bands like Timewave Zero, The Buck & Griz Show, Flight One, and Gary & the Brewers for the last 20 years. He’s a staple in the region and involved in a myriad of projects in the area.
