The Berachah Valley band has been a bluegrass staple in our area for over 17 years. Troy’s downtown concert series, “Fridays on Prouty” will be bringing them back again in 2022 with a new show! This classic band was asked to be the sound of bluegrass for the movie “Mayberry Man.” The movie is a recreation of the beloved Andy Griffith Show which takes place in Mayberry, USA. The experience was an exciting time for the band. They were part of the touring variety show that traveled the country promoting the movie.
On August 12, 2022 at 7:30 pm they will share the variety show and movie with Troy, Ohio. Berachah Valley will play favorites from the movie, the cast will be on hand with jokes and stories.

Reservations are not necessary. Bring a lawn chair, your best friend and plenty of good wishes for Berachah Valley.

Asheville, NC-based Brass Funk Rock band Empire Strikes Brass has a lot to say with a big sound. Full of serious groove from a thumping rhythm section highlighted by lush horn arrangements played by a thick horn section, the band’s compositional roots as well as its creative and collaborative soul contribute lots of depth in their original tunes and covers that speak volumes to ESB’s evolution. The Band’s debut album was tapped as one of the year’s top 100 releases by WNCW 88.7 radio. Recording for their 3rd studio album will be taking place between shows in 2022 as the band writes and masters their new sounds while on tour.
