The New River Valley Regional Theatre presents The NRV Radio Show's January 2020 Edition on Friday, January 24, 2020 at the Draper Mercantile.

Join us for an evening of interactive, theatrical experience! Recorded live and podcast produced by the NRV Regional Theatre, this evening of fun features regular characters, a guest host, a guest bluegrass and/or Appalachian band, audience participation, laughs, prizes and more! This month's band is Johnny Cake and the Lunch Truck.

Johnny Cake & the Lunch Truck is a bluegrass and newgrass band based in the New River Valley. The band draws musical inspiration from jazz, rock, country, blues and more. The band plays classics such as Blackberry Blossom and Red Haired Boy, bluegrass standards such as White Freightliner, and jazzier numbers including Sweet Georgia Brown. They do it with guitars, banjos, bass and a percussion section that includes bodhran (that Celtic drum you’ll often see in Irish sessions).

You may have heard the band at the Palisades, at Rising Silo, or at the Fatback Soul Shack. You can hear more of their music on Facebook and on YouTube.

Band members Bud, Jeff, Aaron, Beth, and Anthony each hungered for a band that would both pay homage to tradition and to interpret that tradition in new ways that were respectful of the past with an eye to the future. One day they somehow all ended up in line together at the lunch truck. The rest is history.

Each member comes to the band from a different musical genre: rock, blues, funk, folk, bluegrass and more come together along with years of experience drawn from playing in bands in all genres. Just like soup, or chili, when you add in all those tasty ingredients, you end up with something much more than a sum of its parts. Johnny Cake & the Lunch Truck satisfies.
