Break out the picnic basket, strap on your boots and get ready to listen to some New Orleans rock n’ roll. The Dixie Power Trio is performing Saturday, August 17, at the Center for the Arts. Each Saturday during summer, the Center for the Arts partners with Micron Technology Foundation, the City of Manassas and the Harris Pavilion to offer free concerts to the public. A variety of popular folk, rock, country and more play each Saturday evening, giving the community an opportunity to connect over great music, food and fun.
This Saturday The Dixie Power Trio is bringing their Louisiana style beats to Harris Pavilion. Inspired from New Orleans, the “trio” is actually made of four men: jazz musician Zack Smith, tubist Andy Kochenour, guitarist Chuck Underwood, and drummer Byron McWilliams. The trio has been playing clubs, concerts and schools for over two decades. Borrowing tunes from Led Zeppelin, the Ramones and Chuck Berry, the group has a knack for mixing rock n’ roll with a spice of Cajun.
The Washington Post describes the trio as, “a class menagerie of tunes…from Lou Reed to Louis Armstrong, The Beatles to Led Zeppelin, Dr. John to The Neville Brothers. They call it Dixieland music for the 21st century, but it’s worth hearing now!”.
