Half Moon - Appalachian Soul Rock
Hailing from the Appalachian mountains, Half Moon is a contemporary blend of rock and roll, funk, blues, and world music with a heavy inclination for improvisation. Half Moon’s sound is best described as an attempt to extinguish all musical barriers. Once that first note hits, a journey of exploratory musicality driven by bluesy guitar licks, robotic synth sounds, melodic piano riffs and thick back-beats gets underway.
INFLUENCES | Gladys Knight & the Pips, RJD2, Waylon and Willie, Wu Tang

This season, we'll have some new vendors along with old favorites. To make room for an additional vendor, the market manager is moving to the grassy area on Westover Avenue--look for the LEAP banner! And to better serve all customers and vendors, as well as making sure that everyone stays safe during market set-up, the markets will be closed until the scheduled opening time this year. Please plan to arrive at or after the start time.
Beer, Wine & Sangria:

The Grandin Chillage is a full service event designed to bring the community together through good music, cold drinks, great company and positive vibes! This past season we have made it a family-friendly event as well.
This outdoor event takes place in the area behind Nopale's on the corner of Westover and Grandin Road. This is a multi-level area with space for mingling on the top level, and dancing to the band on the bottom level. A local craft brewery is featured, with Sangria, some imported wines, and Deb's Lemonade available also. The local bands offer a variety of music from rock to blues to reggae.
Regular season hours are from 6 - 9 pm on selected Friday nights, with a grand finale of a ChillageFest in October which lasts from 1 - 9 pm and features a variety of bands throughout the day and evening, along with a selection of local breweries. The alley between Valley Bank and The Roanoke Co-op is included in the event area to accommodate the breweries.
Children 12 and under are free, and all children 18 and under must be accompanied by an adult. We hope to see you at the next Chillage!
