We have a GREAT line-up for Saturday...Starting the show will be Richmonds own Tammi Kamin Band blending a variety of sweet and savory styles including pop, classic country and original music. This is their first appearance at Night Of HonkyTonk Angels and they're putting together a special show for the night!
Appearing for the first time at Night Of HonkyTonk Angels is April Mae and the Junebugs from Moorestown NJ. They are Americana under the influence of Jump Blues, Swing, & Rockabilly...Ba - ba - ba - Boogie! With a dab of N’awlins for extra spice! Smoke & honey vocals, Cigar Box Guitar, Upright Bass, Banjo, Washboard...servin’ up high energy & deep vintage vibes is their specialty.
Returning for the third consecutive year is Gina Dalmas & The Cow-Tipping Playboys, Honky Tonk Country Rock Americana from Norfolk. They are the winners of the 2009 Portfolio Music Award for Best Americana Music , 2009 Meona Award for Best New Alt-Country Artist, and the 2011 Veer Magazine Award for best Country Artist. Known to pack a house and keep the crowd on their feet, Gina Dalmas and her Cow Tippin’ Playboys draw from the roots of american music, playing songs that will keep your foot stomping and just maybe bring a tear to your eye. In a good way.
The Molly Conley Band is Southern Style Psychedelic Pure Stone Country! Molly spent 15+ years as singer & songwriter in the honky tonk/rock band, Porter Hall Tennessee. In July 2011, the band called itquits. Molly is currently writing songs in anticipation of recording & releasing a new solo record with her new band, The Molly Conley Band! MCB is TCB...
Emma, Su, Jackie and Jen are The Ones To Blame. These four ladies from Gainesville Florida bring a new take on traditional Country. The subjects of their songs are all familiar to Country music fans...heartache, drinking and love gone wrong, but these ladies aren’t going to just cry in their beer and take it lying down. As the lyrics of their song says, "They don’t feel no shame at all, call them The Ones To Blame.
SPECIAL GUEST ANDREA VAUGHAN!
Last year Andrea Vaughan jumped in at the last minute and really helped us out! Her brother, Andy Vaughan is well known through Richmond and he and his band, The Driveline were just voted "2012 Best Country Band In Richmond" by the readers of Style Magazine. Andrea doesn't come out often, prefering to work with her brother behind the scenes. When she does get dragged out, her performances are electrifying and Night Of HonkyTonk Angels is excited she'll be performing again!
We'll be having raffle drawings throughout the evening. We've received some GREAT prizes already from Buttercup Clothing and the GREAT band Southern Culture On The Skids just to name two. If you'd like to make a contribution of a raffle prize, we are still accepting goods and services and tax deductible too!
We'll be posting daily until Saturday, providing more information on the event and to find out more about the bands scheduled to appear!
We at Night Of HonkyTonk Angels would like to thank Southern Culture On The Skids for their generous donation to our raffle! They have donated two CD's, a reissue of their first release "Too Much Pork For Just One Fork" and the extended reissue of "Zombified", both signed by Rick, Mary & Dave! They have also donated some Southern Culture On The Skids tee's as well! Their busy tour schedule prevents them from attending but they are all big supporters of Night Of HonkyTonk Angels and the fight against breast cancer. If you aren't familiar with their music, go check them out and I will GUARANTEE you will be a fan!

We at Night of HonkyTonk Angels support and believe in all organizations fighting breast cancer, but it was VERY important to us that we should work locally and support locally and that is why the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation was our choice. We knew we'd be helping our neighbors, our sisters, aunts, mothers and grandmothers. We also believe local, grass-roots organizations do the greatest and most tangible good for those we know and love.
We'll never ask you to walk or run for the cure....but there is a good chance we'll ask you to dance....

She's A HonkyTonk Girl Today is Loretta Lynn's birthday. She is one of the ORIGINAL HonkyTonk Angels and her impact on Country music can't be measured. There is NO Female singer in Country music and beyond who doesn't owe her a HUGE debt. Her songs like "The Pill" and "Don't Come Home a-Drinkin'" gave voice to millions of women and shook Music Row in ways it had never seen.....Happy Birthday to the Coal Miners Daughter, the eternally beautiful Van Lear Rose

You can even enjoy a fine beverage of your choosing while doing so! Seems a lot more fun than just walking or, moreso, running.....
We here at Night Of HonkyTonk Angels III are quite sure all have at least heard about the recent controversy regarding Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood. There are very passionate opinions from the Pro-Choice and the Pro-Life supporters and we respect the right for all people to express their views.
Our focus will remain to do our best to present a great night of live, original music by local and regional best female roots-music artists and bringing out great local businesses to showcase their goods and services through donations and prizes. We do this to assist local women fighting breast cancer with the assistance of the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation.
