The First Fridays series features an eclectic mix of multicultural performing arts showcased in different spaces within the museum. Take advantage of our extended hours on Friday evenings (we’re open until 9 pm) to also stroll through the galleries, explore the VMFA Shop, or enjoy dinner and drinks in Amuse Restaurant. Also enjoy discounted beverages in Best Café and 30-minute gallery tours as part of Friday Art & Wine.
The Atkinsons meld roots, country, mountain, and rock music into their own style of rambling swing rock and roll. Heartfelt storytelling is at the core of the band and is complemented with three-part harmonies layered over mandolin, fiddle, drums, and bass and electric guitars. Their newest release takes you on a journey through swampy roots, country swing, Texas Cajun to straight-up rock!
