The Richmond Virginia Music Scene

Updated on July 9, 2015

What's Hot In Richmond Virginia

After many years on the road, and living in dozens of cities across the US, I have been living in Richmond Virginia for over 18 years now. In that time here, I have managed night clubs, booked bands, promoted shows and events, and generally worked in the music industry in any and every capacity I could. Now I do all of that and more in my online world as opposed to being physically in the moment. Surprisingly this does not stop me, nor countless bands from making contact with me from all over the world on a daily basis, therefore I find I can actually sit at my pc, and know everything that is going on in my city and cities the world over. I love this, and I love being in contact with all these bands, venues and music resources everywhere, which enables me to offer and help so many as they travel the road to fame and fortune. Here I will try to aquaint you all with the fabulous music and resources Richmond Va, and it's surrounding areas have to offer. I encourage any and all Richmond area Bands, Venues, and other music sources such as Studios, to add their links here. This page should be set up so that readers can contribute, so please do. Any links found to be out of context or off topic, will of course be removed. So let us start our tour and journey thru the RVA music scene now!

      Im new to the richmond area and i really have no idea where to start with getting hooked up with other musicians or where to get gigs to actually put myself out there. i moved here from a small town about a year ago and would love to get into a band or even session recording setting. I have been behind a drum kit for over 15 years, have played in multiple bands of different styles and am very confident that i have more than my contribution to draw a crowd and bring new fans to any rock to metal style band. if there is anyone out there that can help me out or anyone that is looking for a drummer to light up your songs and performances hit me up please pelura2000@yahoo.com
