Thanks to the magnificent musicians who played at LRNOW Fall Festival on PHP! A terrific way to thank them is to HIRE THEM for your event or party!

Every one had a magnificent time at Lynnhaven River NOW’s Fall Festival on Pleasure House Point yesterday!

    An absolutely gorgeous day, breezy and in the upper 60s, the perfect weather and stunning back drop of Pleasure House Point was magnificently enhanced by soulful and inspirational music by our very generous musicians. You can still donate to these fine musicians! Email Tim.
He draws from such inspirations as fellow Augustan, the Godfather of Soul himself, Mr. James Brown. In fact a local radio personality said it best “If Elvis Presley and James Brown had a child, it would be no other than Brandon Bower”. He captivates audiences with relentless passion for the sake of the message.


    Brandon Bower and his band played an amazing, soulful set for an hour and a half without a break. Rocking out on their original tunes, festival goers also tapped their feet, danced, hoola-hooped and sang along to their covers.
Hampton Roads native, Kayce McGehee, will be in town from New York City to play keyboard, guitar, and sing. Drawing from influences such as Regina Spektor and Fiona Apple, Kayce plays a mixture of originals and covers.


    Kaycee McGehee inspired everyone with her spirit-lifting vocals and hauntingly beautiful piano playing. Her set included her own original songs, an original tune written by her dad Lewis McGehee and covers as well.
Rick is the first musician to play on Pleasure House Point Natural Area!
Father-daughter duo offer audiences a soft rock mix of timeless songs ranging from the Beatles to Green Day. Morrgyn, currently a vocal and theater student at the Visual and Performing Arts Academy at Salem High School, adds her own flavor to favorites she has grown with in the company of her father Rick, a 30 year veteran to the local music scene.

    Rick & daugher Morrgyn Kuhns plus Morrgyn’s friend Abi Mathews played a fun, entertaining & passionately rocked out set of covers to musically start off the Fall Festival. Rick also was the FIRST musician to ever play on Pleasure House Point – Natural Area!
