Local favorites Good Shot Judy and Bobby “Blackhat” Walters will perform on Saturday, July 14, from 1-6 p.m. at the 5th Annual Raise the Roof Craft Beer Fest at Historic Christ Church & Museum in Weems. Held on the grounds near the 1735 Christ Church, the event features live music, a dozen Virginia craft beers, delicious barbecue (or vegetarian fare) with all the fixings, and homemade ice cream, reported HCC&M education director Robert Teagle.  

Born out of the idea that jazz music didn’t have to be background music, Good Shot Judy was created in 2013 by brothers Brett and Jeff Cahoon. Band leader Brett says the group performs a dynamic mix of upbeat swing, mambo, cha-cha, rockabilly, calypso, and even some rock music. “We put on a highly entertaining show that anyone can enjoy, regardless of whether you’re a huge fan of jazz and swing or not,” Cahoon said.

Walters, a retired U.S. Coast Guard Commander with 27 years of distinguished service, is a nationally known recording artist, harmonica player, vocalist, and songwriter who has been playing harp for over 40 years. He has opened for blues legends B.B. King, Taj Mahal, and Steady Rollin Bob Margolin. Bobby brings together the finest blues musicians in Hampton Roads to perform classic, modern as well as original blues tunes that will keep your toes tappin’ and your hips shakin’ all night long.   

Tickets are $45 per adult and $15 for under age 21, with ages 5 and under free. Tickets include five beer tastings, barbecue or vegetarian fare with fixings from Willaby’s, homemade ice cream, and a souvenir pint glass. Attendees may also use their tasting tickets for wines from The Dog and Oyster Vineyard.
