Not as many as in the past. When I was living there, we had:

Sissy Spacek
Kate Jackson
Jessica Lange
Sam Shepard
John Grisham

Others were constant guests at the Boar's Head Inn.

I highly beg to differ. I can see that you are not a fan and don't really follow that type of music. But In case you didn't know they are celebrating their 20 year anniversary in the music industry with a new album, tour, etc. They performed with Alicia Keys at the 2008 BET Awards, and they will be performing at the 2009 Essence Music festival in July. They also performed at the 2009 Trumpet Awards. They never stopped doing what they love and now they are better than ever. I take it you haven't seen the brand new photo shoots or have picked up the latest issue of Jet Magazine where the funky divas proudly grace the covers. So check yourself before you start making assumptions. They are still one of the most successful and highly respected groups in the industry today. I highly recommend you check out some of their recent live performances.

Robe Lowe was born in Charlottesville. But I dont think that counts, really, because he spent most all of his life in California or something.

SEC charges Charlottesville man with running Ponzi scheme

By Media General News Service
updated 3:48 p.m. ET, Wed., March. 11, 2009

roanoke,va - The Securities and Exchange Commission has charged a Charlottesville resident with operating a multi-million-dollar Ponzi scheme. John M. Donnelly and his three companies - Tower Analysis Inc., Nasco Tang Corp. and Nadia Capital Corp. - face charges of violating federal securities and exchange acts. According to the SEC, Donnelly fraudulently obtained at least $11 million from as many as 31 investors via the sale of securities in the form of limited partnerships in his three investment funds. The SEC found that Donnelly told investors he had a history of generating annual returns of up to 22 percent. Yet he had done almost no securities trading and none since 2002, according to the SEC. The SEC’s complaint alleges that Donnelly used the investors’ money to pay other investors and to pay himself $1 million in salary and fees over the past three years. The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia has entered an order to freeze all assets under the control of Donnelly and his firms. Donnelly could not immediately be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.
