HGMN Showcase: The Deluge and Mac & Juice Quartet

Live showcase at Martin's Downtown in Roanoke, VA.



The Deluge is a whirling dervish of a band which possesses a kinetic energy in their live show that will leave audiences swooning long afterwards. Blending Americana, Soul, Jazz, Funk and Rock; the Deluge's unique sound captures the essence of many musical styles.Formed in 2008, this dynamic and musically diverse group features Brandon Knox on harmonica and vocals, Chris Lord on guitar, George Westberry on bass and vocals, Daniel Serriff on guitar and vocals and Jeremy Merritt on drums.The Deluge's debut record, Cryin' on the Vine, features "Strange World'...which won best R&B song of 2010 from the international John Lennon Songwriting Contest.Their second release, Elephant Graveyard, features the talents of Grammy Award Winner Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi/Trucks Band) and showcases the group's vast musical range, capturing moments of spinster story telling to raw and unfettered revelry.



Since their beginnings well over a decade ago, Mac & Juice have made tremendous evolutionary strides from their days as a dynamic acoustic duo. Now performing as a Quartet, their vast stylistic range is seamlessly translated into every original song. The band personally describes this as "A melting pot of musical influence crafted into sweet sweet Rock & Roll." Whether listening to their album or experienced live, the end result is a sound all its own that lends itself to a very broad range of listeners.
