And the livin’ is easy…

SUMMER IS HERE!!! Reid and I are spending the days sweating over our guitars and the nights experimenting with a full band in the cool (seriously, the weather is frighteningly good this year!) Athens air. We’re being extremely selective with the shows that we play, so that we can perfect our new stuff and I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED!!!

Friday (5/31), we’ll play a 2 hour set for Blues, Jazz, & BBQ on River Street in Savannah, debuting (with a full band) several of our new ones, some old familiars, and couple of new covers (we may or may not be covering some Adele… pray for me!!!) that should fit the scene. We will then head to Damascus (Saturday, 6/1) forĀ Briar Patch Music Festival to kick up some dust with my favorite SoWeGA peeps PLUS some other regional band buddies (check out the line-up!)! Then we will return to Athens to further perfect the new songs for their hometown introduction at AthFest Music & Art Festival (Friday 6/21)… GET EXCITED!!! šŸ˜€

CHECK OUT OUR LINE-UP FOR MAY/JUNE:

  • My manĀ Gnarly G will not only be featured on the sax, but will also be sprinkling some FLUTE flavor over these tasty sets!
  • To hold down the party beat, we’re borrowing Alex Scarborough from JuBee & the Morning After!
  • Arguably the best bassist in town/the world, Paul Lee is going to thump for us. I can’t even list all of the people with whom he has played… Abby Owens Band, Stewart & Winfield, Isaac Bramblett, Betsy Franck, JazzChronic, Big C & the Velvet Delta, Clay Leverett & the Chasers….
  • My friend and neighbor is letting us steal Chandler Coats on keys! I hearĀ Craig Waters & the Flood practice every Sunday, so he must’ve expected this would happen someday…
  • And of course, my new musical bff, Reid StriplingĀ (click link above for his website and check out the past couple of blogs for a little more on our story) on the gitbox.

So, again, I’m super pumped for this season! The way it’s going, the fall should be EXPLOSIVE! Hope to see y’all this weekend/month!!!
