Vermont Arts Exchange Welcomes Local Musicians to Stage
The Vermont Arts Exchange (VAE), announces its upcoming Basement Music Series concert with Eastbound Jesus on Saturday, January 27, at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7. The Masonic Hall at 504 Main Street in Bennington is home to VAE’s music scene, and this show is sure to be a party! Eastbound Jesus doesn’t fit well under any one genre, and choose to call what they do northern rock. They shred on the banjo, have sweet-sounding vocal harmonies, and play ballads as well as fast-paced rocking tunes. The band has been packing venues with an infectious energy that gets people dancing, hollering, smiling and finding a new appreciation for a sound that is both traditional and refreshing. Eastbound Jesus is comprised of six friends: Adam Brockway (vocals, guitar), Carl Anderson (drums, vocals), Luke Anderson (banjo), Dylan Robinson (electric guitar), Dave Wright (bass) and Zack Infante (lap steel and electric guitar). Their music draws from a diverse range of influences. Tickets are $18 in advance through vtartxchange.org or by calling 800-838-3006. If not sold out, they’ll be $22 at the door. Students are $10. Libations and snacks will be available for purchase.
