Loves It! Dance-A-Thon

Loves It!

Join Loves It! for an evening of music at Cottrill’s Opera House, one of the oldest establishments on Front Street that is currently undergoing a complete renovation. It’s been over 40 years since the Cottrill’s Opera House has had an event that involves boot stomping, clapping, singing, music, dancing, hootenanny, merriment, and the like. So, to start it off right, join local favorites, Loves It!, for a night to remember. Hope you can represent and celebrate!

Loves It formed when two best friends Vaughn Walters and Jenny Parrott dreamed of traveling the world together singing songs! Both accomplished solo writers, they were surprised and excited to see their collaborative works sparkle! Besides inventive songwriting that travels between folk, country, indie pop and swing, each is a multi-instrumentalist and live show features claw hammer banjo, guitars, mandolin, fiddle, and heartfelt inspired singing. Vaughn hails from West by God Virginia and brings his love of country, punk rock, and folk to the duo’s sound. Jenny Parrott is from New Haven, CT and brings a love of soul, swing and gospel. With songs and musical ideas formed by their experiences traveling with other musicians (Shotgun Party, Leo Rondeau), these veterans of the road have come together to create a unique sound that is fun, modern and you will totes LOVES IT!

“…fans will appreciate the fact that their indie folk is audibly inspired by the roots of early country, gospel, bluegrass, and soul. Still at the core is the sharp, angelic ruralism of Parrott’s singing, only balanced this time by Walters’ warm, open voice.” – Bao Le-Huu, Orlando Weekly

“…an American original, seemingly spontaneous at times, effortlessly stunning when you least expect it. The voices come into your heart like that of an angel on your shoulder. Music is sparse, unique and stellar.” – Kinky Friedman
