Seconds at the Soup Music Series presents

Carl Shapiro and The Harmolodics
are in the pursuit of complete musical excellence. Formed in the spring of 2011, The Harmolodics have been striving to bring the joy of jazz and other improvisational music to the Mid Atlantic and beyond. Our goal is to provide our audience with the immense complexities of jazz and world music without a pretentious predisposition. We want, above all, for people to enjoy our music over a fine glass of wine, beer, or spirits without feeling the need to remain tight-lipped. The Harmolodics music is a home to conversation and romance, an authentic big city feel without the price tag or travel. We are open to playing any event without reservation.

Live Music at Waynesboro's favorite outdoor venue! 
Enjoy live music with the whole family ‘til the Stars come out!

$5 Cover charge, Children under 12 FREE. Open Seating. Café Menu hours extended until 8PM. Book, Beverage, & Dessert service til 9PM

“Off the Walls” Art Exhibit – Nancy Maxson

On our wall July and August

Nancy says, 'The deep pleasure of living in the Blue Ridge is the catalyst for my images, in colors and words. The haiku are companions that sneak in around
the fleeting edges. Together, they find a kind of rhythm
and keep me breathing in time with everything that Is-
including you.'
New works on the walls accompanied by haiku!

"Cloud messages - art in watercolors,
ink, and haiku"
Nancy Maxson
