Jump off your couch and get ready to groove with Teressa Wilcox and Violet Mary in this week's all new episode of OnStage.

OnStage, WXXI's original television and radio series that spotlights musical talent from upstate New York, continues its third season with Teressa Wilcox & Violet Mary on Sunday, February 19 at 7 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11).

Teressa Wilcox

Her sound is described as heartfelt acoustic rock with a sound of her own. Teressa has opened for Asia, The Court Yard Hounds, Richard Julian and Paul Freeman along with after party shows for Rusted Root, Blues Traveler and even sang for former president Bill Clinton. Teressa has also headlined the Rochester famous 10 Ugly Men Festival. At 19 she began working with producers and songwriters in the U.K. which included Damian Le Gassick, Michael Scherchen, Brio Taliaferro, and Grant Black. 

Violet Mary

Formed in 2007, Violet Mary is steeped in British blues, 70’s rock, Motown and modern pop. The band members careen their creative visions into a collision of sound and substance; a Technicolor display of pure musical passion and sonic intensity. The byproduct of such controlled chaos is nothing short of breathtaking, each line weaving among the other… each rhythm finding the depth of the pocket.

OnStage repeats the following Saturday at 12 a.m. on WXXI-TV/HD, and a radio version of the series will begin airing on WRUR-FM 88.5 and WITH-FM 90.1 in February.
