SALT is an acoustic rock trio playing Rock/Alternative/Classic Rock from the 80's to today. Although only founded in 2014 - Jeff, Ford, and Russ have been performing together since 2006 as core members of several rock bands. Over the years they have rocked Hampton Roads from the Virginia Beach Town Center and Ocean Front stages, ODU, and in many other venues played along their journey.

They now cover many artists acoustically from the Foo Fighters, Collective Soul, Alice In Chains, U2, and Velvet Revolver to name just a few. Their set lists are as extensive as they are diverse.

They bring their live band experience, sound, energy, and new acoustic format to each performance at a stage or local venue near you.

SALT is available for Corporate/Private events, Music Festivals, Fundraisers, and of course, Club/Restaurant entertainment.
