Ramona & The Holy Smokes

Ramona and the Holy Smokes is a Honky Tonk band from Charlottesville Virginia, whose original country music recalls classic country from the 1950s and 60s. The Holy Smokes are fronted by Ramona Martinez, a prolific singer-songwriter whose sincere and heartfelt music has been described as "incredibly relatable" and "earnest." She also pulls from her Mexican-American roots to perform and compose traditional Mariachi music in a Country Western style. The current line-up of the Holy Smokes includes: Kyle Lawton Kilduff (Electric guitar), Brooks Hefner (Pedal Steel), Jay Ouypron (Bass), and Porter Bralley (Drums.) After taking Central Virginia by storm, Ramona & the Holy Smokes are touring more extensively in the Mid-Atlantic, the South, & New England.


Acelia is a singer-songwriter from Charlottesville Virginia. Acelia and her band create their genre-bending style through indie rock, alternative, and folk influences. They specialize in spell-binding harmonies and lyrics that make you think about the meaning of life. Social and political commentary is a common theme in their songs, with the belief that music has the power to move people and make change. This is a duo performance.
