The 93rd Annual Powhatan County Fair was blessed with great weather all three days, and that added to the attendance. Rockitz provided music on Stage 2, which was right at the front gate on a long and narrow flatbed trailer. Kicking off the music Friday was Chris Branch, who might be the best Neil Young tribute voice in existence, then a great Dead-sounding band formerly known as Nougat, which includes Bruce Miller on bass.

In Laymans Terms

Nougat
Nitro (featuring singer songwriter Wendy Pace) took the stage with their great originals and covers of Jefferson Airplane and Janis Joplin. Then we had Daddy's Radio with smooth retro covers going back to the 20's, after them came In Laymans Terms, a trio from Williamsburg. They rocked out with a 12-year old female bass player, a brother who's fourteen on guitar, and a mom on drums, plus a fourteen year old drummer who sat in and did muscular Ginger Baker riffs.  Danger Lights contributed original songs with a current rock sound next, and finally excellent r & b vocals and rocking vocals with  Bullets From Oz.

More on the Powhatan Fair coming up, plus Artemis Gallery and much more.
