Brian Severn and Those Victorious
Main Stage, 1:15pm

Hailing from Frederick, Maryland Brian Severn & Those Victorious are quickly proving to be tenacious self starters. Writing and performing highly melodic compositions with emotionally intelligent lyrics and big catchy hooks, it’s evident that their inspiration comes from within.

The band, which began as a solo acoustic project featuring Brian Severn, has grown into a solid song-oriented powerhouse. Brian began playing guitar at age 10 and began writing and performing by age 12. After watching Greenday’s Woodstock Performance on television he knew instinctively what he had to do.

 


Ronnie Younkins & Blues Vultures
Main Stage, 2:45pm
www.bluesvultures.com

The Blues Vultures chose their name, in a roots based tradition: like vultures picking at the blues, they are picking through decades of rock history. They define themselves as an original and classic rock band, a decidedly modern term for any band that plays no frills rock ‘n’ roll. The band, led by guitarist Ronnie Younkins, known from the rock band KIX, plays rock ‘n’ roll originals and draws from roots based rock music of the classic rock era,carrying the torch into the next millennium.

The Blues Vultures play original songs, as well as classic rock covers. Formed in 2001 by guitarist Ronnie Younkins, The Blues Vultures deliver their brand of roots rock ‘n’ roll courtesy of accompanying members Aaron Isaacs, drums and vocals, Zak Mabie, bass and vocals, and Rich Moxley on guitar and vocals. The band can be heard on their recent all original roots r‘n’r album "Cheap Guitars & Honky Tonk Bars."
