Check Out the JV Squad & Symphony Rags!

If you haven’t already, please listen to and follow some of my favorite people (and musicians) in two great regional bands: the JV Squad and Symphony Rags.

If you know me, you know that Vanessa Bentley from JV Squad and Brandon Story from Symphony Rags and I go way back — back to the 90’s with the Rent Boys and the Bystanders.  In addition RRSL used to gig frequently with Jared Bentley’s (JV) bands and Megan Gregory (Symphony) plays fiddle and sings on the first RRSL record, I Think We’re Gonna Be Alright.

Some great music and video from both bands are below:

“Falling Leaves” from Symphony Rags

JV Squad live on WETS-FM

Symphony Rags will be at the Down Home in Johnson City on Thursday, October 10th (8 pm show).
