***Floydfest 17 "On The Rise" Competition Winner***
South Hill Banks – Lance Thomas (vocals, guitar), Eric Horrocks (mandolin, vocals), Ryan Horrocks (banjo), Dan Fiasconaro (guitar, vocals), and Matt Eversole (upright bass) – have carved a niche for themselves in the Richmond music scene with their genre-bending psychedelic bluegrass sound. Formed in August 2015 in Richmond, Virginia, South Hill Banks pulls from a wide range of influences such as Phish, Tony Rice, The Grateful Dead, Doc Watson, and Sam Bush to keep audiences entertained with a blend of sounds old and new.
Since the release of their debut album, Riverside Dr., South Hill Banks have taken central Virginia by storm, headlining a multitude of small- and medium-sized venues and working aside national touring groups with a devoted and ever-growing fan base following every step of the way.
South Hill Banks are currently performers-in-residence at The Camel in Richmond, Virginia, appearing on the 2nd Friday of every month with past supporting acts such as Dead 27s, James Justin & Co., Forlorn Strangers, Kendall Street Company, The Floorboards, Lord Nelson, Maradeen, Brock Butler (Perpetual Groove), Will Overman Band. Be sure to stay tuned, as the band has big plans to make a name for themselves throughout the rest of Virginia and beyond in 2017.
