Ultimate Christmas Party w Gina & The Cow Tippin' Playboys
The Barrel Room – Join us for The Barrel Room's Ultimate Christmas Party with Gina & The Cow Tippin' Playboys! Gina Dalmas and her Cow Tippin' Playboys reach deep into the roots of country music, but always end up making magic of their own. In a world of knock-off country bands aiming for that new radio sound, Gina Dalmas manages to keep country music like it should be, honest, straight forward, and from the heart. "Backed by her excellent band, The Cow Tipping Playboys (currently bassist Chris May, drummer Gabe Baesen and guitarist Greg Wikle), the country singer-guitarist never fails to bring audiences to their feet and put smiles on their faces. The band is unfailingly tight and polished, but not to a fault. Throughout, you get the sense that they're having a blast. If you're not a country music fan, don't let that scare you away. If anyone can make you a convert, Dalmas can." The Barrel Room is a lively Norfolk neighborhood eatery and bar located at 437 Granby Street featuring our unique "cooking with spirits" cuisine, 24 craft beers on tap, 40+ bottles, artisanal wines, award-winning bourbons and a huge selection of whiskeys and of course — live music entertainment every Friday & Saturday! Not to mention the friendliest staff around! 757-625-2337 http://www.thebarrelroomva.com/ #thebarrelroomva https://www.facebook.com/TheBarrelRoomNorfolk/
