Somewhere between Bon Iver’s newest record, their sold out show at The National and trombonist Reggie Pace joining the band, Richmond discovered and fell in love with Justin Vernon’s music. While many in Richmond are familiar with Bon Iver, fewer are familiar with Megafaun. That is about to change.

Now based in Durham, North Carolina, the members of Megafaun hail from Wisconsin and used to be in Deyarmond Edison with Justin Vernon. Their new record hits stores September 20th but you can stream it now on rollingstone.com. With a rigorous international tour and a new record, the band will undoubtedly get more national attention in the coming months.

This is good news for guitarist Matt White who arranged all of the horn parts for the record. The record also features many of Richmond’s finest jazz musicians including John Lilley (saxophone), Jason Scott (woodwinds), Bob Miller (trumpet), Marcus Tenney (trumpet), Reggie Pace (trombone), Bryan Hooten (trombone), Toby Whitaker (trombone)and Reggie Chapman (bass trombone).

You can catch Megafaun September 23rd in Washington D.C. at The Red Palace with Matt White.
