The Virginia HipNecks are a premier Northern Virginia-based classic rock and blues band. An extended family of fine musicians who play in a variety of combinations, the core members of the group have been making music together for decades. The group has a large and varied repertoire, including southern and classic rock, country rock, R&B, and originals, and includes beloved classics as well as deeper tracks. Members of the band include lead singer and guitarist Mike Ellis, guitarist Scott Russell, drummer Richie Heisler, keyboardist Laura Nickle, and bass player Ryan Benton. The Hipnecks dedicated this performance to their beloved founder and friend, Pat Walsh, aka Pappy Hipneck, a talented musician and Purcellville resident who passed away in January and is greatly missed by many.
The King St. band is a Northern Virginia rock band based in Loudoun County. The band consists of four talented high school musicians who write, record, and perform their own music. The band is currently working on a new album to be released in 2021. King St. also has a repertoire of cover music, ranging from 70’s classic rock through the contemporary hits of today. King St. was formed in the drummer’s basement in early 2019 and has grown from an instrumental jam group, into an ambitious, genre-crossing powerhouse. The band is made up of Tommy Cegielski on drums, Aidan Preshong on lead guitar, Fletcher Zuckerman on bass, and Ella Levri on vocals.
