First Night Virginia, a popular annual “community celebration of the arts” event.
Reserved tickets must be accompanied with a First Night Virginia Wristband. Tickets alone do not gain you admission to the performance.
Taylor Mathews: The 24-year-old singer/songwriter is just beginning to sink his teeth into success as an independent artist. In 2011, Taylor released his first EP, Head Over Feeling, which debuted in the top 40 of the iTunes album chart selling over 10,000 singles independently. In the spring of 2013, Taylor completed his second tour as direct support for Disney’s R5 band throughout the U.S. and Canada, including a performance in Charlottesville at the Jefferson Theater. After the tour, he successfully funded a $26,000 Kickstarter campaign to record his first full-length record titled Do What You Want To. He wrote and recorded with Grammy-winning producers and songwriters to craft the album which was released on December 2nd, 2013 and debuted at #6 on the iTunes album chart.
In January of last year, after the success of the Head Over Feeling video, Taylor filmed his second video for his current album title track Do What You Want To. In October, with his fans in mind, he created a unique touring experience called The Hotel Party Tour modeled after this music video. The first leg of the tour lasted 12 weeks. It was such a success that, after spending 2 months in Nashville writing and recording new music, he added an 8 week extension of the tour. He is now writing and recording for his new record that is slated for a 2016 release with a tour TBA.
Scotty Cavanaugh:“Action Comedian” Scotty Cavanaugh has performed in over 35 countries and has appeared on numerous television programs including ABC, CBS, FOX and ESPN, where he won two gold medals at the “World Juggling Federation” world championship competition in Las Vegas.
During Scotty’s show you will see balls spin like the Globetrotters, a back-flip mid-juggle and his hilariously dangerous bowling ball trick. He even juggles in the dark, with amazing laser light glow balls! If you love to laugh, Scotty’s show is not to be missed!
