Friends4Recovery, 7420 Whitepine Rd, Richmond, VA

Don't miss this special acoustic performance by LSN's own Tommy Cox, William Newman and Doug White. This will be a rare opportunity to hear the three guitarists of LSN play your favorite Beatles and Grateful Dead songs in a more intimate setting. We'd love to see you there!

This show is presented by Friends 4 Recovery for their Sober Nights live music series. This is a night to celebrate sobriety and recovery. There is no alcohol allowed at this event. Come on out for an evening of great music and friendship! If you're struggling with substance abuse issues and want an evening away to escape that, we can't think of a better place to come!

Sunset Grill Acoustic Show!! 

Come out and join us for an acoustic show at the Sunset Grill in Manakin Sabot Saturday night at 7:30pm!!  The Sunset Grill is an incredibly fun place to play and we always love an opportunity to play a rare acoustic show.  Heather Taylor will be playing you some of her original music during our set break also.  We love Heather and we're sure you will to.  She's an incredible singer-songwriter!!

We'll be playing some new Dead and Beatles covers for you on Saturday!  We worked on some new material last week and have been chomping at the bit to play them.  It is going to be a fun night in Manakin Sabot!!  We're back there again on December 2nd and have an entirely different set list planned.  The only repeats will be the new songs!!  We'll see you there!!!


Coming Up! 

Saturday September 30th we will take the stage at The Be Kind Festival at Devault Vineyards in Concord, VA.  We are on the bill with two great bands, The Mad Anthonies and Tony Camm & The Funk Allstars.  The weather looks perfect for this event and we can't wait until it's time to take the stage!  After the music wraps up on the stage some of the performers from the day will entertain with some acoustic music by the campfire.  This is sure to be an event you don't want to miss!


On October 14th we return to The Iron Horse in Ashland, VA.  We always have a great time playing for the wonderful folks of Ashland and the amazing staff at The Iron Horse!  Showtime is 9:00 and as always at the Iron Horse, free!!!


We have a private event on October 21st in the Lynchburg area.


On November 18th and December 2nd we return to The Sunset Grill in Manakin-Sabot, VA for a couple of acoustic shows.  These have always been a blast to play and we are really looking forward to two intimate nights of music on the patio.  If you've never heard one of our acoustic shows, this is the perfect place to check it out.  We only scale back the volume for these.  You can still count on us bringing a high-energy show with that signature LSN sound.  Just a bit quieter!  Both shows are free!!


December 23rd we will be celebrating the holidays with a return to Cary St. Café in Richmond VA.  CSC is ALWAYS a good time and will be a show you don't want to miss!  Their wonderful staff treats us like gold there and the crowd is amazing!  Richmonders have been showing us a lot of love and we can't wait to get back in town for another show!!  There is a $7 cover at the door for this show.


We will be playing our third straight New Year's Eve show at The Iron Horse in Ashland, VA.  What can we say?  We stick with what works and The Iron Horse has been an amazing venue for us to ring in the New Year for the last several years!  We will be playing three sets of music and kicking off the last set at the stroke of midnight!  NYE is no exception to the rule.  This will be a free show!  Let's wind down 2017 together and bring in 2018 with a bang!!

Here we go!!! 

We are back at it tonight at Cary St. Café after our month-long break.  It seems like forever since we last put on a show and we're looking forward to seeing our Richmond area friends tonight!  We missed you guys!!  We've got a heck of a show planned so come on out and see us!!
