Join The National Press Club in welcoming back Bill Jenkins and the Virginia Mountain Boys as they perform a 50th Anniversary Show. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., show time is 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 28 in the Ballroom. Tickets are available by clicking here.

This bluegrass, old-time mountain music group has performed together for more than 40 years at prime venues including the White House, the Press Club.

Truly unique harmonies, captivating arrangements, and a rollicking good time are the hallmark of Jenkins and his band which has some of the finest string musicians and vocalists in the USA. The group sounds different from typical bluegrass bands with an older, more stark, and more natural sound. No electrical cords attach to their instruments and no fancy electronic devices alter their voices. Their voices are used as much or more than their guitars. The ancient ability to harmonize by swapping back and forth from lead to harmony several times during the same song is part of the genius of this group.
