iRon Lion celebrates the holiday’s in December w/ performances in various DMV locations!

Greetings massive, I’m  looking forward to seeing you in December in various regional DMV locations for some sweet live acoustic and band music and weekend events! So, if you are looking for things to do like enjoying some great indie music and cuisine in and around Virginia, you might want to join us on the road at a nice brewery of your choosing.

I will be on the road for shows each weekend with my acoustic duo, which includes bassie Sam Forrest from northern VA and JMU! It’s been a honour meeting and working with him this year as the newest member of The Shenandoah Valley’s RockTown Riddimz Band! He will be acting as co-band director and songwriter for that project as he is very intelligent with music theory and performance!

I will also be doing some full band backing shows featuring great musicians like Kevin Shawn-Talbot, Shango Roots and Dajando Smith in the DMV area and many more Knotty Lionz Camp bredren & sisdren!

Please subscribe and follow us online at http://www.ironlionworld.com . Plans for new recordings, merch and shows with some great touring artists & groups at some beautiful venues are in the works!

Most of all, Happy Holidays to you and yours and make it a special one! One Love, One Life, Live it up!
