Greg Howard & Peyton Tochterman at Offbeat Roadhouse, Sep 27

Chapman Stick master Greg Howard and singer/songwriter Peyton Tochterman will pull into Offbeat Roadhouse on Friday night, September 27, from 8-9 for a concert which will also be broadcast on WTJU.

Sure you could listen to Offbeat Roadhouse on the radio (91.1 FM) or on-line, and even video stream it, but concerts always sound better with you as part of the studio audience.Offbeat Roadhouse takes place each Friday night from 8-9 (doors open at 7:30) from WTJU’s new performance venue, conveniently located at 2244 Ivy Road in Charlottesville (right next to Vivace Restaurant).  There is plenty of parking, so come on out to the roadhouse!
Howard and Tochterman will join friends James McLaughlin and Justin Esposito as the Paul Koors Band Saturday, October 12, at The Southern as part of a benefit concert.  All proceeds from the concert will benefit the Paul Koors Memorial Foundation (paulkoorsfoundation.org), which will be supporting the John Ritter Research Foundation for Aortic Health as the beneficiary of this concert.

This Charlottesville all-star band plays the music of Paul Koors, an emerging singer-song-writer and doctor who wrote two albums of country-tinged rock songs, but passed away suddenly at the age of 38 from sudden heart failure before the second could be released.  This concert is an album release party for his second album, “Make a Man, the Unfinished Life of Paul Koors.” It is a benefit for the Paul Koors Memorial Foundation which is raising money for medical research into aortic health, and also for music education in songwriting, Paul’s passion.
