Updated: Oct 1, 2021

UnlockingRVA's 4th of July Picnic at Kanawha Plaza LIVE MUSIC and FOOD TRUCKS

When we heard about a big 4th of July picnic happening in Richmond, Va's Kanawha Plaza, we had to check it out. It was hosted by UnlockingRVA, who curate unforgettable experiences that inspire local Richmonders. There were so many people looking to smile and congregate around others, it was an infectious vibe. Food trucks were parked outside for attendees to grab a bite to eat to replace their energy after dancing. Singer, Sam Reed's sultry voice was backed up by some of Richmond's most-skilled musicians. They combined to bathe the crowd in positive sounds.

Band members:

Sam Reed - Vocals

Calvin Presents - Keys

Joshua McCormick - Drums

Reggie Pace - Percussion

C Dot - Bass

Jackson Shurlds - Guitar
