Events

We care about the safety and well-being of our community above all else.  For the 2 years, in lieu of in-person gatherings, we created regular virtual programming and special broadcasts for each of our events; you can watch the replay of those programs here. In Spring 2021, we eased back into some live events, and we are planning a full roster of events in 2022! Click Here for a full schedule of 2022 events, and stay tuned for details below. We will continue streaming live broadcasts of each of our events, so that anyone can access them, regardless of your ability to attend in-person. For the latest updates, please tune in to our Facebook page. Upcoming events are listed below.

About the Artists: Option 22 Eclectic, Soul-Driven Americana This infectious, eclectic Americana groove is led by powerful, yet blissfully soothing vocals dancing atop a smooth, soulful flow. Positive lyrics inspire unity and call for change. Based in Princeton, Lori McKinney (vocals, drums, spoken word) and Robert Blankenship (guitar, hand-drums, didgeridoo) have been writing & playing music together since 2004. Now infusing the mix are the highly skilled & ever-flowing bass lines of Brandon Dunn, the rock solid, hard hitting rhythms of Ary'an Graham (drums) and the soulful guitar stylings of Jacob Brooks (lead guitar). As a group, they understand the power of music to heal & transform, and they use their creative gifts to make a positive impact on the world around them. Robert & Lori live and work within a multi-purpose creative zone they created in downtown Princeton, The RiffRaff Arts Collective, which is revitalizing a one dark, depressed area with color and life. They also founded and run Culturefest World Music & Arts Festival & many other events. The other musicians orbit around the collective, bringing their talents and spirits around often, forming a sphere of creativity and good vibes. option22.net Je'Dah Madison Palmer R&B, Soul, Funk Je’dah is a 22 year old native from Princeton, West Virginia.
