Hope in the Hills Fundraiser

  • Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company (map)

Empire Strikes Brass & Joslyn & The Sweet Compression rock the brewery for this special event Friday August 2nd. Tickets are only $10 at the door and benefits HOPE in the Hills, a nonprofit dedicated to hosting events to encourage recovery, raise hope, and raise funds to fight the overdose epidemic.

Empire Strikes Brass is a high energy Brass-Funk-Rock band hailing from the city of Asheville, North Carolina. Formed on the streets of their hometown, ESB is rooted in the New Orleans Brass Band tradition of second-line parades and deep moving grooves reminiscent of old school funk. Combining complex musical arrangements with thoughtful lyrical song structure, ESB can stretch out and dig deep when they are feeling it or keep things tight and concise. The fat sound of the horns paired with one dirty rhythm section makes the music downright psychedelically nasty!

Joslyn & The Sweet Compression is making a name for herself in West Virginia after playing Mountain Music Festival this past June as well as The Wild Bean & The Burrito Bar at Breeze Hill in Fayetteville. Find out why folks are loving this powerful and dynamic voice Joslyn Hampton brings to the stage. She teamed with her stepfather Marty Charters, a touring guitarist who has shared the stage with legends such as Junior Wells and Van Morrison, to compose a captivating set of tunes and assemble an ace band. Joslyn & The Sweet Compression have become a headlining favorite at regional clubs and music festivals, and are poised to engage fans across the country with their hook-filled mix of funk and soul.
