Sons of Bill & Friends Christmas Party
Join us for our 6th Annual Rock & Roll Christmas Party featuring Charlottesville's own Sons of Bill along with numerous special guests from throughout the Charlottesville music community! $1 from each ticket sale will be donated to a local charity.
About Sons of Bill: Bill Wilson is from central Virginia. He is professor emeritus of philosophical theology and southern literature at the University of Virginia; a singer, songwriter, and a father of six. His three eldest sons, along with long-time musical compadres Seth Green and Todd Wellons, started a rock band upon their return to Virginia, and they called it Sons of Bill.
Having been voted the best band in Charlottesville for the last 4 years running, Sons of Bill grew beyond being just Charlottesville's best kept secret in 2012 with their third full-length album, Sirens. Produced by fellow Virginian David Lowery (Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven) the album debuted #12 on Billboard among new artists and garnered the band its first taste of critical acclaim for its mix of introspective lyricism and rock-and-roll bravado. As one writer put it– "It's like southern gothic arena rock… it somehow manages to be fatalistic and triumphant at the same time." With a live show known to evolve from acoustic ballads into sweaty stage dives, Sons of Bill has always kept a grueling tour schedule on both sides of the Atlantic, sharing the stage with artists ranging from My Morning Jacket to the Drive-By Truckers and playing coveted slots at Bonnaroo, ACL Fest, and SXSW.
