At the start of 2012 two crazed music fans set out to bring Northern Virginia their very own Jam Band scene. Heady Entertanment, co-founded by John Church and Dave Adams, started booking and packing shows at local bar- turned music venue Breakers Sky Lounge, located in Herndon, Virginia.
Heady Entertainment has since evolved at a fast pace from booking talent local to Virginia and Maryland, to booking bands touring nationally. Not only have they brought amazing musical talent, but they have also created an experience by bringing in local artists, vendors, and visual performers.
“We’re in it for the same reasons you were when you started seeing music.” Church explains. “With out our fans we are nothing, we started this to create a community and the community responded in kind.”
As Heady Entertainment has evolved over the past few months, they’ve grown tremendously not only booking shows at Breakers Sky Lounge, but has also moved into Jammin Java , located in Vienna, Virginia.
On top of booking out Jam shows, Heady Entertainment has also created “Spun”, a night of electronic music featuring phenomenal EDM DJ’s. In previous editions of Spun, Breakers Sky Lounge has seen artists such as Malphunktion , DJ Troy Tallent, Christian Dope, Masta, DJ 0bscure , Colin C, and even DJ Lantern who has performed at Ultra Music Festival in Miami for the past several years tagging with DJ Proxxy, as Proxxy and Lantern.
Since summer start, Heady Entertainment has slowed on booking weekly shows at Breakers, as they have been working with area festivals on the weekends such as Nomadic Roots , Pasture Palooza, and the upcoming 4th Pink Moon Festival , in Rock Camp, West Virginia featuring musical acts Eoto, Galaxy Dynamite, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and more. Pink Moon is to be held September 15-16, with $20 presale tickets, and $30 at the gate.
After having Baltimore natives Segway, and Richmond’s own, Former Champions, performance Saturday, August 4th, Heady Entertainment will continue to work with weekend festivals until their return at Breakers September 1st with Herndon’s stop on the Zoogma and D.V.S* tour.
Moving into the fall Heady Entertainment is looking forward to performances from PH factor, Jahman Brahman and Roster Mccabe, Funk Punch and more. Heady Entertainment is also looking forward to a killer Halloween show. All details for these performances will be released on their Facebook fan page http://www.facebook.com/HeadyEntertainment.
Heady Entertainment is eagerly growing within the DC metro area. Church adds that “The first seven months were really cool, I cant wait to see what happens come January. Nothing beats walking out seeing 150 people getting down and knowing you were apart of that.”
