With a mix of high-energy rock and country, the Pickup Band is guaranteed to add an extra level of excitement to any event. From the first song to the last, the audience will be clapping, dancing and, best of all, singing along! The 5-piece group is made up of experienced musicians: Phil Holstein on lead and rhythm guitar and vocals and Rocky Smith on bass guitar and vocals are Rockbridge natives. John Good on all things percussion has called the county home since 1993. Leading the pack are Kenton Kody on guitars, fiddle, banjo, mandolin and vocals. And the one and only Gloria Lewayne carries most of the vocal work. She has also been known to pick up the guitar and shake a mean tambourine. Husband and wife team Gloria and Kenton have played in groups up and down the east coast and have lived in the area for 5+ years. The band covers a wide spectrum of musical styles. From the classic rock of Creedence, the Stones and Grand Funk Railroad to the latest country hits by Lainey Wilson, Little Big Town and Ashley McBride, the band does it all. Entry is free to Boxerwood members and those under 18. For other adults, it is $5 per person. Each band donates its performance to Boxerwood, so we pass the hat to support the band. Cash for entry and band is recommended. Bring your own picnic or grab food from LexVegas Bistro, cooking up delicious food at each concert. This is a zero-waste event, so please plan to pack out everything you brought in.
