Hailing from the central Virginia cities of Charlottesville and Richmond, Mayday is an exciting four-person band featuring drums, bass, keys, trumpet, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and soulful 4-part vocal arrangements. The powerful voice and engaging songwriting of frontman Theocles is backed by energetic jams and tightly constructed rhythmic grooves. Folk, soul, and rock-based melodies are imprinted over pop-style arrangements, with a focus on catchiness, entertainment, and originality.
Despite being little more than a year old, the band’s musicality and commitment to tight, exciting performances has led to a rapid growth of followers and some high-profile shows, such as Charlottesville’s historic Friday’s After Five concert series. Mayday’s debut single “As a Boy”, a pop-rock song about welcoming the realities of growing up, is set to release on November 3rd, 2023.
With a wide range of dynamics both within and between songs, Mayday’s music will work its way into both your heart and your dancing feet. Don’t be shocked if you find yourself walking home with one of their tunes stuck in your head!
