About the bands:
By now most Annual Daniel alumni are familiar with Hammer No More the Fingers and the pure drop of mojo that is summoned when these guys perform in front of friends and family at this... their “2nd home” alongside Claytor Lake.  Free to take risks they may or may not pursue during a club set, the result is a sonic boom that lingers long after the final notes are played.  Hammer plays Friday, June 15th.  Here’s a video:

Leading the charge on Saturday will be The Hot Seats from Richmond, VA.  Since last year’s A.D. the Hot Seats have put out a live album + studio album, toured Scotland twice, and honed their chops to become an even tighter bluegrass/old-time/ragtime/country machine.  They are primed and ready to up the ante this time around!  The Hot Seats perform on Saturday, June 16th.  Here’s a taste:
