Chamomile & Whiskey's Friendsgiving Revue

with Deau Eyes, Rebecca Porter, and more!


For over a decade now, Blue Ridge Mountain Rock and Rollers - Chamomile and Whiskey have called Charlottesville and Nelson County home. Although years of touring have taken them around the country, the mountains of central Virginia have always called them back and shown them love. Their deep roots in the area have grown many friendships within the musical community and the band decided Thanksgiving weekend would be the perfect time to invite a number of these great artists to join them on stage. 

Thus is born the Friendsgiving Revue, a night of collaboration between Chamomile and Whiskey and many of the area's best musicians. Throughout the evening, the band will invite an eclectic array of guests from various genres, (guests will be announced in the weeks leading up to the show) to join them on stage. Selections from the C and W catalogue, as well as original compositions from the invited artists will be showcased... the night will be full of surprises.


Deau Eyes is Ali Thibodeau: Richmond, Virginia born and raised singer, songwriter, actress, choreographer, nanny, truck driver, waitress, construction worker, tour manager, baker, bartender, painter, Harry Potter World witch, tap dancing elf, camp counselor, journalist, Soul Cycle receptionist, puppeteer, open mic host, saleswoman, team building expert, free sample distributor, box office attendant, personal assistant, Zumba instructor, and dog walker.

Ever since Thibodeau left high school early in her junior year, she has been working to support herself, her art, and her healthy appetite for adventure. Lifelong dreams of a career in performance brought her to live in New York, Florida, Idaho, and all over Virginia, to work in theaters, theme parks, studios, classrooms, festivals, and cruise ships. For most of her life, Thibodeau has been part of the ensemble — dancing, speaking, and singing from a script. It has only been in recent years that she has listened to herself, to her original inner voice, and began to translate her wide range of experiences into her own music.

Her debut album Let It Leave, set to release in May 2020 on EggHunt Records, was recorded in January of 2018 at Trace Horse Studios in Nashville, TN. The recording was funded by an overwhelmingly supported Kickstarter, meaningful proof to Thibodeau that people believe in her, and in turn, fueling her belief in herself. She called upon her longtime friends and co-producers Jacob Blizard and Collin Pastore, whose creative efforts show up on records by Lucy Dacus (hi, that’s me) and illuminati hotties, among others. The songs celebrate the joys and complications of a liminal life — balancing between freedom and stability, falling into and out of love, and trusting yourself through the noise of other people’s expectations. - BIO BY LUCY DACUS
