Loretta Lynn Benefit Concert for the Charlottesville Free Clinic

Country music legend Loretta Lynn will be headlining an unforgettable benefit concert at the nTelos Wireless Pavilion all in the name of raising money for the Charlottesville Free Clinic. While known for her countless studio albums and for impacting the country music world in the 1960s and 70s, Loretta Lynn has managed to stay relevant by continuing to tour and even produce new music. Her latest album, the Jack White-produced Van Lear Rose, has reminded the world of Lynn's power as a vocalist and her skill as a songwriter. She has also become a philanthropist and is currently active in many political movements. Albemarle County musician/actress Schuyler Fisk, her musical partner Tim Myers, and their band FM Radio will be opening for Lynn. The Charlottesville Free Clinic has been serving the Charlottesville and Albemarle communities for over 20 years. Come out to show your support and get your groove on “country music style.”
July 27, nTelos Wireless Pavilion, 7pm, $35-$59 

Chefs in the Garden

You can find not one, but four famous chefs this Monday when Joe Sparatta, Tim Bereika, and Jason Alley come to town in order to team up with head chef Tucker Yoder at the Clifton Inn for a night of delicious southern fare and homestyle cooking. The award-winning chefs are making the trip west from the Richmond area in order to offer their own versions of exceptional southern-inspired culinary contributions. The summer feast also will feature pigs from the nearby Autumn Olive Farm in Waynesboro, and each attending guest will walk away with a complimentary jar of BBQ seasoning. The Clifton Inn is an elegant and historic property located on a beautiful and well-maintained 100-acre estate. Be sure not to miss such a unique blend of southern culinary influences.
July 29, Clifton Inn, 6pm, $150 per person with wine pairings, or $88 per person without.

Municipal Band of Charlottesville “Music from Stage and Screen” Summer Concert

The 80-member Municipal Band of Charlottesville will be performing the fifth show of its 91st Annual Summer Concert Series in a theme guaranteed to entertain — “audience favorites.” The band has been performing in the Charlottesville area since 1922 and is continuing to push the boundaries of classical music in their summer performances. The all-volunteer band consists primarily of wind and brass instruments but also includes a percussion group and a few musicians wielding strings. The Paramount Theater is also a significant piece of Charlottesville history dating back nearly 100 years. The fully renovated venue hosts a wide variety of arts, education, and entertainment events and is a much fitting location for the reputable Municipal Band of Charlottesville. Also, be sure to arrive early for the band’s Horn Club lobby performance at 7:15pm and also a Musical Instrument Petting Zoo for the little ones from 7:30-7:45pm.
July 30, Paramount Theater, 7:15pm, Free – No Tickets Required


Southern rock/rap group Rehab can be defined in many different ways. Dating back to the late '90s, the group’s founding members Denny Campbell (who goes by the stage name of “Steaknife”) and Danny (Boone) Alexander met in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center— hence the band's name. The group has no shortage of personal trials and tribulations from which to draw inspiration and has also been described as a mix of smooth rap group, A Tribe Called Quest, and the hardcore rappers of NWA. After a flurry of turnover surrounding the group’s core members, the face of the band, Danny Alexander, has stayed true to the Rehab’s artistic vision and is currently touring with a new conglomerate of musicians who have not been around from the beginning. The result is a new and more grounded sound which has found a considerable amount of success. Their most recent album, Gullible’s Travels, was released this February and has received a moderate level of critical acclaim. But without a doubt, this group still knows how to rock and put on a good show. So don’t miss your chance to see a group of seasoned veterans true to its southern origins.
