Ron Moody & The Centaurs - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Ron Moody and the Centaurs is a 53 year Virginia Tradition with Ron being the only member who has performed at every show since the band's inception December 26, 1964! The group has recorded for Columbia, ABC-Dunhill, and MGM Records, as well as their own in- house labels, Star America and Aron Music. The Centaurs are a 7 piece Southern Soul / Beach Music Band that has played countless venues over the last 5 decades. In 2008, Ron Moody and the Centaurs were inducted into The Beach Music Hall of Fame
Their story begins in Richmond, VA with five middle school students riding the wave of Motown, Stax, The British Invasion, Elvis, The Beach Boys, Brill Building pop, and all the various genres which comprised the melting pot of ‘60’s American Music. In typical garage band fashion, they learned to play and perform through many days and nights of constant rehearsal. Next they took their “extensive” 10 song repertoire out to the local community center for their first taste of stardom and its accompanying $14 remuneration! It was their start, albeit a humble one, but they never looked back. Soon they had cultivated a large teen following and began to play numerous venues throughout the state. As their reputation grew, they decided to add horns to their lineup and focus on the great Rhythm & Blues that was predominant during the era. This music, now affectionately known as “Beach Music” soon became the band’s passion and the music of choice that remains the bedrock of their repertoire today.

Ron Moody and the Centaurs is a musical roller coaster ride through fifty years of Beach, Soul, and Rock & Roll. They still play sold out venues wherever they perform and a night of their music is a non- stop evening of dancing and good times.
