Jim Quick and Coastline Band - 8-10pm
Winner of the 2013 Beach Music Awards (The CAMY's) Entertainer of the Year for the second year in a row! Jim Quick also won an award for co-writing the song "The Driver" with Casey Meyers,. Albert Rogers, the bass player for Jim Quick and Coastline, was recognized as the Instrumentalist of the Year.
An eclectic blend of soul, blues, and rock has produced the sound known as Coastline. From hard driving Carolina back beats, to Georgia southern rock, from Cajun inspired grooves, to Texas and Delta blues; Coastline truly defines the sound of historical Southern music. With finesse, the pure forms of southern music are transformed into a modern contemporary art form.
6th N Main - 5-7:30pm
When you infuse keys and strings, a throaty sax, the penetrating sound of the trombone, a relentless guitar, energetic trumpet, percussion-soaked rhythms all with soulful vocals what results is 6th N Main, Southside Virginia's self proclaimed "Ambassador Of Dance" ! From Raleigh to Richmond, for 10 years this big band of 12 musicians and vocalists have provided that big band sound covering MoTown, Beach, R&B, Disco, Pop, Classic Rock, and American Standards.
Join your hometown band, 6th N Main, and come on out to the 2016 Cantaloupe Festival. "Shut Up and Dance" with us as we bring a little "UpTown Funk" to open this annual event and get everyone up, dancing, and ready for Jim Quick and The Coastline Band.
"No matter how much pain is in your hips – once 6th N Main fires it up you cannot, even for a minute, sit still! You must, you will , dance and yell and laugh and scream! What energy! And then they kick into "Detroit" and your head explodes! Saw them on a visit to the area, Oh what a night!" – John St. Ledger, Poughkeepsie, NY
