They were awesome!

We just recently had Victoria Lee and New Ground perform at our reception in Dunn, and could not have been more pleased with the performance! The video and recordings of them online do not do them full justice! They were such a fun group with great energy. Everyone was so impressed and commented on how great they were. We are so happy we chose them and not to mention how reasonably priced they are for what you're getting- better book them while you can this band is definitely going places!

Wonderful..Just Wonderful

We hired this band for our wedding reception, and we could not have asked for a better match for us. They are very talented, and our guests loved them (even the ones who aren't typically bluegrass fans)! When we started planning our wedding our biggest priority was great reception music, and boy did they deliver that and then some! Absolutely perfect night and in large part to these guys (and gal). Communication prior to the event was great and they were very friendly, professional, and easy going. If you are looking for a bluegrass band in the Triangle area look no further. These folks are as good as it gets!

Amazing Band! Loved every minute!

We booked Victoria Lee & New Ground to play at our wedding reception. My husband and I are big bluegrass fans and the band absolutely MADE the wedding. Their talent is unreal! It provided the perfect atmosphere! Since the wedding I have had so many guests come to me and say how much the enjoyed their performance and would love to hear them again. They were super easy to work with, communication was great and pricing was extremely fair. We hope to have them at another event soon, just need to find a reason to throw another party! I would recommend Victoria Lee & New Ground to anyone. Their talent is just un-real, best wedding decision I made!

Outstanding Booking!

We hired VGL Music for a birthday party for our son Jackson. Was such a great surprise for him. Victoria has such a great voice and personality, the interaction with the party was such a hit.

We plan on hiring them again in the fall for a pool party for our community. Would highly recommend her for your event.

VGL Music

Victoria Lee and New Ground is a vibrant and energetic, group of young adults centrally located in Raleigh, NC that performs a variety of Country and Bluegrass Tunes. They are experienced at performing during private parties for as few as 10 as well as hundreds at area music festivals, so no venue or event is to large or too small.

“Victoria Lee and New Ground” was formed in early 2012 by founding members Victoria Lee, Tyler Jackson, and Bailey Coe with Gary Baird formally joining the band later in 2013. Though, three fourths of New Ground’s members are celebrating their youth as teens, this group has demonstrated the hard driving traditional style that has made Bluegrass music a favorite among many, as well as, “marinating” in their own flavors to give their performances a certain freshness that continues to drive their musical careers.

Victoria is the youngest at a vibrant, 15 years of age and a sophmore at LongLeaf School of the Arts in Raleigh, NC. She has a passion for music and vocal range that is surpassed by few as she provides rhythm guitar and lead vocals for “New Ground”. With a determination and drive that would stagger most while being instructed and influenced by Steve Dilling of “IIIrd Tyme Out”, she has developed a love for our nations “Backbone” music, Bluegrass, and is becoming well known in the folk community. Victoria is also influenced by Russell Moore, Rhonda Vincent, and Patty Loveless to name a few.

At 19 years old, Jackson Hagwood has been playing and singing bluegrass music over half of his life. At the age of ten, he began taking music lessons and started to develop a unique style of playing that separates him from the traditional sound of the bluegrass banjo. He has played with his brothers in the group Bethesda Bluegrass Band since 2004 and has won multiple awards including five 1st place wins at the North Carolina State Fair Folk Festival competition. Playing music has been natural to Jackson and he takes pride in learning new things and progressing as an instrumentalist. When not playing bluegrass, Jackson enjoys playing drums and electric guitar at church and working on his Chevy II Nova.

Bailey, the eldest of the founding members at the age of 18, was schooled by Russell Johnson of "The Grass Cats" and reacquainted himself with his love for Bluegrass music. Not only does Bailey provide hard driving upbeat Mandolin for “New Ground” but he also adds lead and harmony vocals as well.

Gary, at an undisclosed age, is no stranger to the stage. Formally with “Constant Change” with whom he toured the East Coast for some seven years, discovered his love for music while listening to gospel and bluegrass albums with his family as a child. He learned to play on a ship while proudly serving overseas in the United States Navy and upon his return home in 1992, he joined a local group and has been playing bluegrass music ever since. He brings to “New Ground” not only a smooth and steady bass rhythm but also harmony and lead vocals while also adding an element of "band chemistry" that relaxes and encourages other band members while ensuring not only the goal that “New Ground” is having fun on stage but the fans and audience is, as well.

"Victoria Lee and New Ground" is equipped with a 1000 watt, 16 Channel amplifying system for vocals and instruments as well as tents, tables, and lighting that can all be powered by a generator if needed so not having an available power source or after hour’s performances is not a problem.
