Although the DC area has traditionally been known as a musical no-man’s land, the four members of the Virginia Coalition feel it has largely been misunderstood. DC is all about the blending of many different styles of music - layered and textured with no restrictions - It's rock with soul, hip-hop with hippie, R&B with bluegrass… and all of these styles are in Virginia Coalition’s blood. The band’s homage to Virginia may be a bit misleading. Alexandria, Virginia began as a section within the original borders of Washington, DC until things heated up between the North and South just before the Civil War. Hence the name of the band. Featuring Andrew Poliakoff, (lead vocals/guitar/ percussion) Paul Ottinger, (keyboards/percussion/vocals/bass guitar/guitar) Jarrett Nicolay, (bass guitar/banjo/guitar/vocals/Casio) and John Patrick (drums/vocals/trailer) every member of the band can play almost every instrument. They sing just as well as they play and every one of them writes. Their collaborative song-writing style creates the textured, sometimes eccentric, and always melodic songs that have allowed Virginia Coalition to stand out.
