Alaska’s Blackwater Railroad Company is teaming up with Kona’s own Ronnie V. & The Family Band for a night of wild acoustic music, dust bowl dancing and down-home food. It all happens on Sunday, Dec. 8th at 7 p.m. at the Privateer’s Cove Theater. Tickets are $10 at the door. Info below.
Blackwater Railroad Company (BWRC) is on track to become one of Alaska’s most popular and successful bands. An evening with BWRR promises lots of dancing, the love of whiskey and laughter with friends.
Like good moonshine, this folk-rock group was formed in the small town of Seward in 2012 and consistently delivers warm, cheery evenings. The band adds new original music with every passing show, mainly culled from the prolific songwriting capacities of its frontman, Tyson Davis. The music can be defined in many ways, but the overarching themes include folk, bluegrass, rhythm and blues and country songwriters from the late 60s and 70s. Regardless of the genre, BWRR specializes in upbeat, unique covers and catchy, danceable originals that never fail to get the crowd dancing and smiling.
In one evening, audiences will hear a wide range of the band’s muses, such as Devil Makes Three, The Felice Brothers, MGMT, John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, old blues standards made famous by The Band, and even the likes of Madonna and They Might Be Giants.
Ronnie V. & The Family Band
Ronnie V. & The Family Band is an American Roots Music group based out of Kona on the Big Island of Hawai’i. “We are keepers of the tradition of storytelling history through acoustic music. Our sound infuses Blues, Gospel, Soul, Bluegrass, Old Time and Americana music to showcase the stories of the working class, from the darkness of hard times to the triumphs of finding the light. Perpetuating positivity in the face of darkness is the moral at the core of all of our original music.”
