The line up for 2016 Life is Beautiful Festival has been announced and it is awesome!

I was so excited to not only see a ton of WRRV artists but also several WRRV Session acts as well. The Festival held in Las Vegas spans over three days (9/23-9/25) and will host acts like Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, Jimmy Eat World, Young the Giant, Kongos, Third Eye Blind and so on and so that's not the name of the band. That's me telling you there are far to many bands to even list!

I will tell you this though, slated amongst the laundry list of talent are three session's bands joining this years festival, one session alumni, The Strumbella's and two future session acts, the Wombats and the Dirty Heads.

The Wombats will be one of two bands playing this month (June 16th) and big news for the month of August my friends. As we welcome the Dirty Heads back to the Hudson Valley. It just goes to show you that we know what we're doing here with this amazing thing called WRRV Sessions....and by we I mean Simon!

Make sure you join us every month for WRRV Sessions at the Newburgh Brewing company. A great way to catch amazing talent before they're too big for their britches...or at least before it costs you a full days pay to see them elsewhere.

Joining us next for WRRV Session's is Bear Hands on June 2nd, show at 5pm. Then you're in luck, another show on June 16th with the Wombats, show at 6pm. Yup it's a twofer! Hope to see you there.
