Event Details


For the third year in a row, current NBA shooting guard JJ Redick returns to his hometown of Roanoke, VA, giving back to a community that has given him so much.  Also, for the third straight year Bright Services will be the title sponsor of an event that raises funds for two local non-profits:  Children's Miracle Network Hospitals of SW Virginia and CHIP of Roanoke Valley.  In years past, this fundraising event has been a beautiful marriage of golf and great live music, and 2013 is no exception.  Friday, August 9th we are kicking off the weekend festivities with a tasteful, southern themed party at the gorgeous Patrick Henry.  This Kick-Off Party, presented by Valley Bank, will feature a concert from two amazing, nationally acclaimed acts: Railroad Earth and Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors.  Entertainment for this event is made possible by the LifeRing Foundation.  We will raffle off some great prizes, including a twosome in the celebrity golf classic the following day.  General Admission tickets will have access to many food and beverage specials. Capacity is limited, so don't wait!

About The Bands


Railroad Earth's music is driven by the remarkable songs of front-man, Todd Sheaffer, and is delivered with seamless arrangements and superb musicianship courtesy of all six band members. They can jam with the best of them, but they’re not a jam band. They’re bluegrass influenced, but they use drums and amplifiers (somewhat taboo in the bluegrass world). RRE bristles about being lumped into any one “scene.” Not out of animosity for any other artists: it’s just that they don’t find the labels very useful. According to fiddle player Tim Carbone, “We use unique acoustic instrumentation, but we’re definitely not a bluegrass band – so that doesn’t fit. And I think the term ‘jam band’ probably refers more to the fans than to the band. I think these fans just like live music.” When the band does elect to “comment” on a song via an extended improvisation, they really cook – and have received the approval of no less than Grateful Dead bass player Phil Lesh, who knows a thing or two about jamming.

Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors 

Some artists are able to articulate a vision at the very beginning of their career, while others hone their craft over time, growing into their vision as they mature. 
“I am definitely in the latter category,” explains Drew Holcomb, a Tennessee-born, duck hunting, French speaking, bourbon drinking, 1st edition book collecting, golf playing Eagle Scout with a Masters degree in Divinity from Scotland’s University of St Andrews (he wrote his dissertation on “Springsteen and American Redemptive Imagination”) who has spent the better part of the past decade as a professional musician – recording, writing, and touring with his band Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors.
