Our Story

Red and the Romantics is based in Charlottesville, VA.  We make all original music crossing over many genres.  Music has brought us together. Music is our passion and our language. We perform with the hope to inspire our audience. We are working to make a positive impact on our listeners. There is an abundance of musical experience and diversity in this group ranging from the low down dirty blues to gospel church music to rock 'n' roll. The songs come from the life experiences and imagination of Erik Red Knierim. These songs are enriched and fortified with the rhythms and melodic phrases of the Romantics.


We love to perform our music for people of all ages and social groups.  Please contact us to find out how we can be a part of your special event.
