Below is an introduction to the performers who will be featured on June 19, 2021.
Tobago Bay is Northern Virginia's hot Calypso band featuring music from the Caribbean and the sound of steel drums. A stylistically unique band from day one, they have been singing, performing, and playing together since 2000. From Virginia to Washington, D.C. to Maryland's Eastern Shore, their professional and versatile group can be configured in a variety of ways ranging from solo steel pan to the full five-member compliment, and their wide musical repertoire includes both vocal and instrumental tunes.
Willie White Band
The Willie White Band consists of seasoned local musicians Willie White on guitar and vocals, Wade Crounse on bass and vocals, Scott Marks on Saxophone and Joe Castelhano on drums. The band currently performs a blend of original and cover versions of rock, blues and classic country at various venues in Loudoun County and the surrounding areas. Influences include The Band, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, and Johnny Cash among others. Their show consists of everything from upbeat, improvised jams to vocal harmonies over mellow ballads and classic songs. You can also find the band members locally, individually performing as solo acoustic artists and numerous collaborations in the area.
Baxter Tunes Folk & Roll
Bryan Baxter grew up in the Winchester area and spent his teenage years and early adulthood following his ear wherever it led him. A self-taught guitarist, he was eventually drawn to more soulful music without limiting himself to any one genre. Influences on Bryan’s music include Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, Hank Williams, Sr, and Norman Blake; his original songs include genres of bluegrass, jazz, folk, and rock. His open-minded musical spirit inevitably led him to unearthing a knack for writing songs of his own and adding them seamlessly into his every-day playing. His passion for music has put him on stage in such locations as South Carolina, Florida, Virginia, West Virginia, and even Cuba.
Music in the Tabernacle is sponsored by: Mountaineer Pipe, Keren Jayne Homes, Presidential Bank, Bayside Professional Services, DiRenzo Family Dentistry, Kettles and Grains, Longhouse Architects, Loudoun Valley Roofing, Purcellville Business Association, and Shamrock Music Shoppe.
