- Sunday 8 pm - New Belgium Pine Grove
The Southern Belles are Adrian Ciucci (guitar/vocals), Tommy Booker (keys/vocals), Aaron Zarrow (drums/vocals) and Andrew Carper (bass/vocals). Playing a high-octane mix of funky southern psychedelic Rock & Roll, the Belles perform shows and festivals all over the county each year. The Southern Belles road-tested sound has earned them a devout following, with fans traveling far and wide to catch the show. Since the release of their latest album “In The Middle Of The Night,” the Southern Belles have been picking up steam and gaining national notoriety for their original compositions and song craft. Their songs are both fun and moving, with lyrical stories evoking familiar emotions and complex musical journeys. This winter, they opened for a leg of Yonder Mountain String Band’s tour. The best is yet to come for this amazing group.
The Southern Belles were formed in November of 2011 in Richmond, VA by Adrian Ciucci and Zach Hudgins. Early on Adrian and Zach added Raphael Katchnioff and Tommy Booker to their already eclectic sound. The Belles started playing monthly residencies in both their hometown of Richmond at Cary St. Cafe and The Camel, and in nearby Charlottesville, at Rapture. In 2012, they released their first album, “Sharp As A Knife,” and took their show on the road.
