Blue Ridge Rocks is your ultimate guide for music in and around Roanoke and Southwest Virginia. Our growing community of music fans, writers, promoters and musicians are dedicated to providing you with the most comprehensive information about the local music scene.


The site was started by a small group of music lovers who reside in and around the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Once forced to travel to larger cities to find the smooth sounds they craved, they recently found themselves overwhelmed by the region’s flourishing music scene. With a breath of live music opportunities, that range from world-renowned to regional and national grassroots musical acts, on any given night, the group had a hard time keeping up with all the possibilities. Hence, Blue Ridge Rocks was born.

This site serves to highlight all the musicians, producers, promoters, and fans who make and sustain the scene. Have any other musical notes you want to bring to our attention, shoot us a message on the Contact Us page.
