THE BALLAST BAND
Decidedly home-grown, the band’s original music is a unique combination of rock n’ roll with a hint of blues and funk.
The band’s name comes from the nautical influence of Virginia’s Tidewater region, but it also represents the common quest for balance in people’s lives as they work, play, and grow.
With its strong harmonies, upbeat instrumentals, and universally themed lyrics, The Ballast Band has been making audiences feel good throughout Eastern Virginia. The Ballast Band also performs many popular cover songs from bands such as The Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Allman Brothers, Neil Young, REM, and many others.
Members of the band are Matt Williams, guitar and vocals; Frank West, keyboards and vocals; Ken Gibson, drums; and Charles Records, bass guitar and vocals.
