Happy Birthday - 'Murica!
July 4th is a time to enjoy a long weekend, fire up the grill, enjoy some live music at The Black Walnut Brewery and have a few rounds of cold, delicious, patriotic beverages on a hot summer's day!
Dodging the parades and dragging our canoes behind us, we setup on a wonderfully mild summer day... and got to spend the afternoon with an incredible group of people.
THE BWB is a terrific host and one of the best places in Leesburg to spend some time with friends. The crowd was fun and very responsive and we had an absolutely lovely day.
Thank you again for a great event, for the celebration of a country that isn't perfect, but still gets a lot of things right and for your support of local music! We hope to see you again very soon!
The Rockers were honored to play a summer event at Spanky's Shenanigans in Leesburg, VA in support of some excellent charity work.
The Pipe Hitters Union MC hosted their annual charity bike wash, complete with door prizes, raffles, auctions and some extraordinary generosity from their members and other clubs joining in to support.
We had a great time playing classic rock on a lovely summer afternoon!
But even more than that, we were simply amazed at the generosity and heart of this event. People dug deep to help a local member cover medical bills (from COVID) - raising thousands of dollars in local support for a member in need.
It was a series of great moments, and it was deeply encouraging to see people love each other and move to need a real need in a practical way.
Score: Humanity 1, Small-Minded Selfishness 0
So from the Beltway Rockers, we say, well done PHUMC! And well done Spanky's for hosting this event... we were very pleased to share a beautiful afternoon with you!
