Formed in the early 1990s, and transforming ever since then, The Hogwaller Ramblers are perhaps Charlottesville’s greatest un-signed band, and they play every Sunday now at Fellini’s. Frontman Jamie Dyer, the only original member left, has managed to keep this band of rogues together for so long, we guess, because when you’re in it it’s about the music, nothing else. Y’all really should check them out on Sundays.
PS: apologies to the lovely violinist Cathy Monnes, who is not mentioned in the video, but who was playing with the Ramblers the night we visited. Sorry, too, to banjo player Jimmy Stelling, who I did not get to interview before my camera broke…lol
Here’s a lovely short video about the DTM shot by Jennifer Finazzo-Schneider. Enjoy!
The talented videographer Anwar Allen created this video about our DTM neighbors Beer Run. If you haven’t been, the Carlton Road hotspot is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, with brunch on Sunday. Awesome coffee and espresso bar, 17 beers on draft, 700+ bottled beers, wine and other food and drink items, too. Oh, they also cater and deliver.
Another great short film about the DTM from Brian Wimer and Rich Tarbell. So many great little details that make the place special. Sound track is Old Virginia Block by Devon Sproule. You have to check it out!
Another gem from Amoeba Films–that young man who plays violin on the DTM. His name is Dominic Isador Durham and he’s got a thing or two to say about what he brings to this world.
This is a great little short film about the DTM by Brian Wimer and Rich Tarbell for Amoeba Films just posted on YouTube. Really captures the flavor of the place. With music by Devon Sproule. Enjoy!
