Last years' WAMMIE nominees, King Street Bluegrass is a kickin' mix of Bluegrass, Folk/hippie era music, and country, with some spicy originals thrown in.

Quote from Bluegrass Spin Mag- "...their collective love of making music can't help but wash over the audiences...this band gets it right by producing just the right Blend of instrumentation and vocal harmonization to create a bluegrass sound that is pure magic to the ears-"--2014

Beer Garden show at Westover

 —  —

Westover Market, 5863 Washington Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22205


While sampling the great beer selection, We'll be cooking up a special show in this intimate setting just for you, with our lead vocalist Dan Rilko.

We think this Google review says it all: "...One of Arlington's best hidden gems. It is a local spot. Most of their customers walk from the surrounding neighborhood - and for good reason. Every day they serve up a selection of some of the best beer in Arlington. The selection rotates frequently, so the chances that you'll find something new are great. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable, and make fantastic recommendations. They have a great selection of standard bar fare, as well as more exotic specials such as the wild burger of the week (gator, boar, camel, etc.). The atmosphere is family friendly and there is often live music playing on the patio. You will see many families with young kids as well as the occasional dog hanging out on the other side of the fence (dogs are not allowed on the patio)."
