Drive! Drive! Concert
@The Village Theatre and Art Gallery
Drive!Drive! isn’t just another internet pop band. The alternative pop creation was first formed in the mind of Alex Johnson. Craving to create something new and powerful. Not only with music but with a brand and aesthetic that would catch everyone’s attention. After a year of searching in Nashville for professional musicians, he found Gavin Hurlburt and Philip DeLuca (A Danville Native and Monte Vista Grad). Their first single reached over 100k streams on Spotify, and two additional singles have paved the way to a tour and sold out performances.
