Mason Lovette Band

Though established in 1999, a local band has resurfaced lately with a burst of talent and newfound chemistry. The Mason Lovette Band, started by college classmates Matt Lovette and Michael Sudyk, has become a staple at local and other venues across the state.
Steadily touring since its conception, the band has solidified its lineup with Bryan Windsor on drums and backup vocals, Billy Hatley on bass, Billy Faucette on keyboard, organ and backup vocals, and Clint Rhodes on lead guitar, banjo and vocals.
The dueling assault of Sudyk and Rhodes drives the band’s sound that is capped by the magnetic Lovette up front. Whether pitch perfect covers or new takes on once reverent classics, the Mason Lovette treatment has become a requested fixture throughout the triangle.
With their growing fan base in tow, the band quickly converts first timers as well. MLB, in short, creates and conveys a sense of the collective in their enthralling performances. New and popular country covers as well as classics plucked from every genre are sure to inject energy and across the board excitement to any event.
The feeling of ‘being in this together’ that Lovette creates on stage is unique and immensely entertaining. Coupled with this charisma, the band’s wall of sound refuses to be ignored and dares to share the instrumentation among all members.
MLB’s brand of harmony is homegrown and only stems from night after night in dimly lit barrooms. To see this payoff in their live performances is refreshing and exciting.
Ready to party? Then a Mason Lovette Band show guarantees a rocking good time that you will never forget!!!

Jason Link

Country music may be running through Jason Link’s veins, but when you first meet this modern-edged performer down on Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee, it’s hard to tell he was raised on a 900-acre tobacco farm that goes back four generations.  In fact, you may think he was more of a new generation country-rocker with hair falling conspicuously into a spiky form of bedhead sexiness and a lean physique sporting an array of rumpled designer duds, including a cowboy hat that he modified himself by spray painting and scuffing up into its own innovative texture.

But regardless of his urban-esque appeal, this real world ‘country boy’ from Freeman, Virginia, can belt out a tune with just enough twang that would be best described as George Strait meets Hank Williams, Jr. with a serving of Kenny Chesney on the side.  And that doesn’t even cover the fact that he’s an extraordinary guitar player. He is among the few that play lead guitar currently driving the country music scene.  Only two other players come to mind when thinking of Jason and that’s Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.

However, Link is well aware that possessing the talent to have mastered the guitar and banjo is not all it takes for him to make his dreams a reality…it’s about having great songs.  No problem there.  Jason also happens to be a seasoned songwriter, with the ability to construct memorable melodies paired with story-driven lyrics and just the right amount of modern flare to appeal to a country radio audience.  And if that’s not enough to convince every country music listener to jump on the “Link” train, his ability to perform live is without question, the best.  With the stamina of Bruce Springsteen and an enduring passion to always be on stage singing, he is what one would call a true entertainer. 

But none of this should be a surprise once you learn how long Jason Link has been doing this thing he calls “his life”.  It all started at the age of five…playing the drums at his grandfather’s dance hall, Club 301, while also appearing on his grandfather’s radio station, 580 AM WLES, in Lawrenceville, Virginia, under the nickname “Scoot Scoot”.   At age 16, he began to play guitar and write his own songs which led to countless shows at local bars and other venues with his uncle Marty, who was influential in teaching Jason his unique style of hybrid country lead guitar.  Eager to explore music from all genres, Jason was influenced, both vocally and in his guitar playing, by artists ranging from Hank Williams, Sr. to Jimi Hendrix to the Beatles.  There was no stopping him.

When Jason was nineteen, he landed a gig as the lead singer in a house band he formed with his uncle.  His great dedication to music was truly apparent during this time, as he drove one hundred miles each way, playing over 270 shows a year for five years.  It was during this period of his life that Jason began to develop his unique musical style with the help of vocal coach Janet Kenyon, who has worked with artists such as Taylor Swift and Josh Turner.  

Today, Jason resides in Nashville, Tennessee, tours the country, and continues to capture new fans with his energetic and aggressive live performances.  With a country music style all his own mixed with a good dose of rugged sex appeal, Jason never fails to leave an audience wanting more.  

Jason Link’s life has been and always will be his music…as a third generation musician, he carries with him his family’s musical lineage and it is no secret that he is well on his way to becoming a country music superstar.  As his grandfather once told him, “He is and will be “something special”.
