Thursday - Mar 24, 2022 7:00PM
We are excited to host 2 young bands who are touring with a whole lot of buzz about them!
This will be an awesome show, DO NOT miss it!
Who is Virginia Man?
Are they your hometown rapper from the beach? Are they a singer/songwriter from the mountains? Are they the chef of your favorite restaurant in uptown, or your favorite tattoo artist downtown? Truth be told, Virginia Man is anyone. Virginia Man is everyone.
This Virginia Man is a 4-piece rock and roll band from Fredericksburg, VA that sings lyrics from the bottom of your heart in songs from your fondest memory. Comprised of Kristian Lietzan (vocalist/guitarist), Stephen Amoruso (bass), and Jacob Somerio (guitar), their music will make you feel like coffee and cigarettes while reading your favorite author at 7:30 in the morning, reminiscing on the 3-course meal you shared with the love of your life the previous evening, they're the silly geese, you always want a party, and they're good people that make music for good people, and that feels good.

The name Arts Fishing Club is an homage to lead singer Christopher Kessenichs grandfathers (Colonel Arthur Kessenich & Arthur Schmidt). The name serves as a reminder to approach music in the way they taught us to fish: go out every day with the sincerest intention for success, casting out again and again despite the inevitable empty-handed reels. A successful day of fishing is not determined by what you end up with at the end of the day but rather the beauty of the action itself along with the presence of the moment in nature. Fishing, music, and life are about the adventure they take us on and the people we get to share it with.
