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!!

 

Getting ready!!! 

Our break is almost over and we're more excited than ever to get back out there and make some music for you guys!  Our side projects have been a lot of fun and keeping us on our game.  Hopefully some have you have had the opportunity to check them out!

September is going to be a great month for LSN!  We return to Cary St. Café on September 8th for our first night-time show there!  We loved our Saturday afternoon gigs at CSC and absolutely can't wait to play for the night-time crowd!  The next day we'll be playing a private event for one of our dear friends at his wedding!  That is going to be a wonderful day with some wonderful people and we are so stoked about it!

September 23rd we are playing at a camping event open to the public at Peaks Of Otter Winery in Bedford.  The organizers of this event have left no stone unturned in preparation for this and it is going to be an incredible night of music, friendship and great wine!  You can be sure that there will be some killer acoustic jams by the fire after our show so don't miss this one!

September 30th is the first annual Be Kind Festival at Devault Vineyards in Concord, VA.  We are honored to share the stage with The Mad Anthonys and Tony Camm & The Funk Allstars!  Chris Schmitt will be performing with all three groups!  Ben DeLaurentis will be playing in between acts to keep the music flowing all evening!  This is another camping event so keep your ears open after the stage shuts down for more acoustic music in the camping area!

We look forward to getting back on stage together and seeing our friends for some wonderfully long, wonderfully strange nights!!!!

 

Next up! 

We're taking August off.  You can find some of us working in side-projects throughout the month.  You just gotta poke around!

 

Our next show will be at Cary St. Café in Richmond on September 8th!  We loved our Saturday afternoon shows at CSC and are really looking forward to throwing down for the night-time crowd for the first time!
