Corporate Woods Drive Performs Aug. 8 for Music on Monarch Way Concert Series

The University Village summer concert series, Music on Monarch Way, continues at 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8, with the blues, funk and rock band Corporate Woods Drive.

Based out of Norfolk, the band features Jay Einhorn, 16, Willie Einhorn, 18, Neal Friedman, 17, Jacob Snyder, 15, and Zach Wang, 15, who have combined their love of blues to create hip music. The band "paints itself in the Stevie Ray Vaughan and Cream shade of blue," according to reporter Jeff Maisey in The Virginian-Pilot. Playing at venues such as the Norva and the Jewish Mother, the group has a growing and diverse audience that includes everyone from high schoolers to baby boomers.

Sponsored by the Old Dominion University Real Estate Foundation and the University Village, the Saturday evening concerts are held from 5-7 p.m. on the lawn behind ODU's Ted Constant Convocation Center along Monarch Way. Concert admission and parking are free.

Information about the concert series and a full list of shops and restaurants at the University Village are available at http://www.oduvillage.com or by calling 683-4504.

The remaining concert schedule is as follows:

Aug. 15 Luke Hartman Band - Soft Rock

This trio's music appeals to people of all ages with cover songs ranging from the '70s to today. While the acoustic guitar is the main staple of their music, the rhythm section adds a funky groove, giving the band its unique sound.

Aug. 22 Harwell Grice Band - Bluegrass

Delivering hard-driving bluegrass fresh from the mountains of Southwest Virginia, these talented young musicians offer a wide repertoire of traditional, cover and original music.
