Support a Fantastic Non-Profit:

LCCB is a proud to support the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation at James River. It was founded with one purpose in mind- to save Thoroughbred horses no longer able to compete on the racetrack from possible neglect, abuse, and slaughter.

Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation

The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is the oldest and largest equine sanctuary of its kind in the world. The James River chapter was founded in 2007 as one of the Second Chances programs where horses live at correctional centers. At James River Work Center offenders care for the horses and become certified in the nationally acclaimed Groom Elite program in the process. The horses here are assured a lifetime of care with the opportunity to be adopted out if suited. Our success stories confirm that our program is horses helping people, people helping horses.

Event Info:

LCCB is celebrating the Kentucky Derby and the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation at James River in style. Come dressed to impress because we’re having a best dressed and best hat contest! We will have activities for all ages, including pony rides and, of course, a live showing of the Kentucky Derby!

Live Music:

The Southern Belles (1:00 – 4:00)

Southern Belles

Hailing from Richmond, VA, The Southern Belles play American, Rock & Roll, bridging the gaps between funk, psychedelic rock, country, and soul.

The Trongone Band (5:00 – 8:00)

Trongone Band

In addition to an impressive collection of Grateful Dead and other Jamband covers, the Trongone Band plays an eclectic mix of classic and southern rock, pop music and artist originals. What truly sets these guys apart is the extent to which they own whatever they play, for both originals or covers, they pay homage to the true spirit of the tune, and then embark with the audience on an odyssey in the moment, which twists and turns to the energy of the room. One thing is for sure; you will hear songs you love in new and exciting forms and others you’ve never heard, becoming forever etched onto the heartstrings of your personal vault.

Special Appearance from Secretariat’s Grandson!

Covert Action

Covert Action is the Grandson of Secretariat. Although a knee injury kept him from racing, he has had a major impact on many peoples lives, much like his Grandfather. Don’t miss your chance to meet this equine legend at Lickinghole Creek!

Nuclear Nugget Release & Earth Day Party

Nuclear Nugget Release & Earth Day Party

Date: Saturday, April 18th

Time: 12:00 ‘Til Sunset

Place: Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery

Address: 4100 Knolls Point Dr.  Goochland, VA 23063


Virginia’s Farm Brewery is Proud to Present:

Nuclear Nugget Imperial Honey IPA

10.5% ABV, 105 IBU
Hops: Magnum, Centennial and Nugget, of course
Yeast: House American Strain
Bottle Limit: No

Nuclear Nugget

The Nugget is about to drop. Nuclear Nugget Imperial Honey IPA is a delicious hop libation. It’s not delicate or subtle. What it is, is a hop head’s dream fulfilled. Nuclear Nugget explodes with flavor. Notes of citrus flowers from Centennial Hops and strong herbal and spice notes are added from Nugget hops. The fallout is somewhat subdued through the generous additions of local honey. Proceed with Caution. The Hour Draws Nigh.


Music:

Dance Candy 1:00 – 4:00

Dance Candy features an all-star lineup with a soulful, sensuous female voice that draws influences from everyone like pop stars Adele and Whitney Houston to R&B greats like Jill Scott and Sharon Jones. The deep groove rhythm section can set the tone for everything from 70s funk to hip hop. The sophisticated, funky leads of the guitar set up the soaring melodies of the trumpet to leaves jaws dropped and hearts broken.

Dance Candy is a tight, polished six-pack of musicianship, schooled in the vibrant VCU music scene in Richmond. Heart and soul. Everything you need for this party…and the time of your life.

Mighty Joshua 5:00 – 7:00

Despot Day 2015 – Saturday, March 7th

Virginia’s Farm Brewery Proudly Presents:

Despot Day 2015

Enlightened Despot Bottle Release

Date: Saturday, March 7th
Time: 12 pm – 7 pm
Place: Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery
Address: 4100 Knolls Point Dr. Goochland, VA 23063

The Despot Doth Come

Beer Information:
Enlightened Despot
Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout
11.3% ABV, 78 IBU
Just over 2,500 Bottles Produced
1 Case Limit Per Person

Enlightened Despot

The Enlightened Despot is an amazingly rich, complex and surprisingly drinkable Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and delicious Bourbon round out this robust stout. Aged for 8 months in the most premium Kentucky Bourbon Barrels available. The Enlightened Despot is made with 10 specialty grains and contains over 78 IBU of American Hop flavor. This truly is a one of a kind beer.

In the June 2014 edition of Beer Advocate, the Bros rated the Enlightened Despot a 94 saying, “The beer geeks love their Imperial Stouts, and a small handful garner enough hype to draw massive crowds around their release. This one is just as deserving as the next. A sweet malt bomb with roasted grain and alcohol is not all that is going on here; there’s also layers of chocolate and coffee met by alcohol warmth. Something to savor.”

Music:

Barrelhouse:  Performing Time: 12:30-3:30*

Barrelhouse emerged out of a shared obsession with the raw authenticity of blues in the summer of 2006. On the top floor of a vintage music store in downtown Richmond, VA, three of the six members exchanged numbers after a community jam session. A few short years later, Barrelhouse has shared stages with ZZ Top, Gregg Allman, Delbert McClinton, Jimmy Herring, and Jason Isbell.With two guitars, an overdriven harmonica, a notoriously tight rhythm section, and three vocalists, Barrelhouse strives to create something unique, all while giving a respectful nod to the celebrated blues tradition that brought them together.

   Vexine: Performing Time:  4-7*

Vexine is “Sexy, soulful, edgy rock”. 

Featuring Sarah Gleason’s incendiary vocals, Vexine delivers a powerful, high-energy show with Paul Pearce on guitar and vocals, Michael Skiffington on bass guitar and electric upright bass, and Jorge Santamaria on drums and percussion.
