Adar - Fridays After Five
FRIDAYS AFTER FIVE - BUD LIGHT CONCERT SERIES
Adar - Soul Funk Jazz Rock - Free Show
Powerhouse vocalist and songwriter Adar Seligman-McComas is based out of Charlottesville, Virginia and formed her band, ADAR, in the summer of 2016. The band quickly gathered an enthusiastic following with their compelling original songs and charismatic performances. ADAR draws from a deep well of original compositions and introduces new takes on covers that transcend genres including Soul, Funk, Jazz, Rock and more.
ADAR released their EP, The Rapids, in March of 2017. Reviewing The Rapids, Nick Rubin of The Charlottesville Weekly wrote, ”At shows, the Amy Winehouse vibes are conspicuous, but on The Rapids, classic soul sonics give way to balladry as well as touches of reggae and Cubanismo. Her band delivers tasty trumpet and organ solos and whining steel guitar; Adar’s lyrics are sensorially rich with flavors and textures, and Nate Leath's production sets everything in the right space."
ADAR has become an integral part of the Central Virginia music scene, and within their first year, played alongside two-time Grammy nominated band SOJA. They’ve been invited to perform at music festivals throughout Virginia, some of which have hosted three-time Grammy Award winning band Snarky Puppy, The Hackensaw Boys, The Steel Wheels, The War on Drugs, Sister Sparrow and The Dirtybirds, Larry Keel, and many more.
The goal of the Sprint Pavilion is to provide a safe, enjoyable environment for all of our patrons, our performers, and our staff. With that in mind, beginning in 2018, we will enact new security procedures to make sure that prohibited or dangerous items are not brought into the venue. For all events, including Fridays After Five, patron points of entry will be limited and there will be a bag check for any packages brought inside the gates. We encourage our patrons to travel light but, if you do have bags or packages with you, plan for the entry to take a few moments as our staff inspects the bags. We appreciate your patience so that we can all feel safe. Unfortunately, we do not offer any bag check so please familiarize yourself with our list of prohibited items and leave them at home.
For all ticketed events, we will be instituting a higher level of security. All patrons will be asked to walk through our metal detectors after emptying their pockets of any metal objects. Patrons may opt for a pat down inspection should they choose. We will have plenty of lines open and we hope that this procedure will flow smoothly and not delay your entrance to the venue. Should you bring bags with you to ticketed events, we will still need to inspect the parcel prior to you passing thru the metal detectors. Once again, we appreciate your patience as we work to ensure the safety of all of our patrons.
