The day before the event--the same day the event sold out--Levon Helm, legendary drummer of The Band passed away. We were playing at the Confederate Ironworks that burned in 1865 when Richmond fell, and everyone at the event forgave our digression from yacht rock as we traded verses and performed The Night They Drove Ol' Dixie Down. We hope that somewhere Levon was smiling!
The $25 ticket included beer, wine, and yacht rock at a beautiful historic venue by the James River. All proceeds benefitted the American Civil War Center, which seeks to tell the whole story of the conflict that still shapes our nation.
