Red and the Romantics- Fridays After Five

Fridays After Five, presented by Bud Light, continues to be Charlottesville’s favorite live concert series. 2018 will be the 31st year of free live music and fun.

Red & the Romantics' music has been described as Americana & Roots, though the sound is diverse.  Crossing over several genres, the songs are original and written by Erik "Red" Knierim.  With the blues master- Steve Riggs on upright bass, the colorful guitar playing of Steve Vargo, the gypsy, gospel inspired melodies of Betty Jo Dominick's accordion and the musical drumbeat of Dan Barrale with Seth Johnston on percussion.

There is a dancing feel, then there is a poetic side, and always a joyful groove.  A Charlottesville based band since 2011, Red & the Romantics is a good vibration that appeals to the young and old.
