Street Fighting Band: A Rolling Stones Tribute

They're the biggest band on the planet and capturing the raw power, swagger, and blues soaked rock n' roll The Rolling Stones have provided for over 50 years is no easy task. Somehow, someway, Street Fighting Band, an amalgamation of St. Louis rock, blues, and soul veterans, make it look seamless.
With members of El Monstero, Celebration Day, Funky Butt Brass Band, Rhythm Section Road Show and some of St. Louis' top original talent (The Feed, The Incurables, Via Dove), Street Fighting band captures the true essence of rock n' roll's royalty.

GRÜT

IMG_7803.JPG

The members of Grüt each draw from a wide spectrum of genres and influences, an openness that is reflected in all four’s activity as leaders or members of many other types of groups. This unique confluence of disciplines and backgrounds is introducing new sounds to the Atlanta music scene, but their approach is also rooted in the legacy of one of the city’s most beloved musicians, the recently deceased Col. Bruce Hampton. Col. Bruce’s influence is ubiquitous across Southeastern musical communities, and both Brandon Boone and Daniel Wytanis are veterans of his touring band. In the tradition of The Colonel, Grüt blends the predetermined with the spontaneous, is always open to the spirit of the moment, and above all, wants the effect of their music to be a joyful one.

Rich Homie Quan

CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS!!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!!

At just 23 years old, Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan is set to take the music industry by storm. Born DeQuantes Lamar on October 4, 1989, “Quan” as close friends and family know him, is the eldest of three siblings that were raised in a single family home. Originally having dreams of becoming a professional baseball player, Quan could not ignore his passion for music.

Possessing an undeniable talent for storytelling, Quan’s focus quickly changed to rapping. Dedicating countless hours in the studio, Quan began churning out street hit after hit, which eventually resulted in the 2008 smash “Stay Down” featuring the Stack Money Boys.
Beginning to make his mark in Atlanta, “Stay Down” became a hood favorite and solidified the start of a promising rap career for Quan.

The beginning quickly came to an unfortunate halt when Quan found himself on the wrong side of the law, which cost him over a year of his freedom. With a faithful following and committed team, they continued to push Quan’s music for his undying fans.

"NEVERMIND is a tribute to one of the greatest bands of all time... NIRVANA! Nestled in the suburbs of Atlanta three guys from the local scene decided that their town needed more Grunge! Specifically... Nirvana. 

Coming from other bands and tributes they knew how to make this work. You need a serious love for the music, a strong work ethic to get it right and most of all you had to be as close to the real thing as possible!"

Jupiter Coyote

CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS NOW!!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN NOW!

In the course of their 27 year history, Jupiter Coyote has played over five thousand shows, traveled everywhere and done just about everything a touring band can do. The innovative group has independently sold well over half a million CDs, tens of thousands of downloads, and who knows how many bootlegs loose to fans for free. JC is brand name and still trucking along, despite today’s ever-changing, increasingly unpredictable music scene.

JC plays it the way they feel it — with little regard as to where they fall between the cracks of what is considered trendy and fashionable. A band prolific in its writing, skilled in its musicianship and congenial in its nature, they remain the prototype of the truly independent band.

Coyote has shared the stage with The Allman Brothers Band, Dave Matthews, Widespread Panic, String Cheese, The Radiators and Kansas just to name a few. They have played large festivals from coast to coast, including: High Sierra Music Fest in California, Charlotte’s Center City Fest, Atlanta’s Mid-Town, Birmingham’s City Stages, Asheville’s Bele Chere and The Magnolia Fest in Live Oak, Fla.

The group traces its roots to Brevard, N.C., where childhood friends Matthew Mayes (guitar, guijo, vocals) and John Felty (vocals, guitars) decided in 1990 to pursue a career in music. The duo headed to Athens, Ga., where they joined forces with bassist Sanders Brightwell. Steve Trismen (vocals, fiddle) joined the fold in 1999. A native of Boulder, Colo., Trismen’s playing melded neatly into the band’s sound and gave Coyote a new on-stage dynamic. Tasteful and intense, the group’s jams extend higher and the melodies — combined with Mayes’ guijo (banjo neck, Stratocaster body) and Felty’s slide guitar — create a revolutionary sound truly all their own. Lot’s of vocal harmony and clever song writing set these guys apart from the rest of the banal, jam band pack. There is no band that sounds like Jupiter Coyote.

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN NOW!

From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey and his band Mofro live—and you truly, absolutely must—the man is fearless. Onstage, Grey delivers his songs with compassion and a relentless honesty, but perhaps not until Ol’ Glory has a studio record captured the fierceness and intimacy that defines a Grey live performance. “I wanted that crucial lived-in feel,” Grey says of Ol’ Glory, and here he hits his mark. On the new album, Grey and his current Mofro lineup offer grace and groove in equal measure, with an easygoing quality to the production that makes those beautiful muscular drum-breaks sound as though the band has set up in your living room. Despite a redoubtable stage presence, Grey does get performance anxiety—specifically, when he's suspended 50 feet above the soil of his pecan grove, clearing moss from the upper trees. “The tops of the trees are even worse,” he laughs, “say closer to 70, maybe even 80 feet. I'm not phobic about heights, but I don't think anyone's crazy about getting up in a bucket and swinging all around. I wanted to fertilize this year but didn't get a chance. This February I will, about two tons—to feed the trees.” When he isn't touring, Grey exerts his prodigious energies on the family land, a former chicken-farm that was run by his maternal grandmother and grandfather. The farm boasts a recording studio, a warehouse that doubles as Grey's gym, an open-air barn, and of course those 50-odd pecan trees that occasionally require Grey to go airborne with his sprayer.

SHOP BOYZ

BUY TICKETS NOW!!

When trap and crunk music were popular in Atlanta, The Shop Boyz (Demetrius “Meany” Hardin, Richard “Fat” Stephens and Rasheed “Sheed” Hightower) were experimenting with an edgier sound and style, layering guitar riffs, violin, heavy bass, and drums against hip-hop tracks creating a sound they call “Hood Rock.” Their breakout single, “Party Like A Rock Star” was like nothing you’d ever heard before.
Three rappers from Bankhead, Atlanta’s westside smashing guitars and making mosh pit music against hip-hop beats. The Shop Boyz push even further into uncharted terrain going from hip-hop to hood rock and everything in between, experimenting with rock, country music, reggae, electronic dance music on 5 new songs that will be released digitally in 2015. “We’re hard-core hip-hop fans, but we don’t look at ourselves like hip-hop artists anymore. We’re trend setters” states Fat.
Fans of their first album, Rockstar Mentality, will be excited to hear the guitar riff again on “BornTo Be Bad,” an after-party for “Party Like A Rockstar;” Sheed calls reggae inspired, “Party All
Night,” an anthem for the people who work Monday-Friday but let loose on the weekend.” The
party continues on “Sunrise,” an electronic rave dance track that Sheed says, “will send you into
another dimension.”

The Cordovas

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN NOW!

$5 Door

Sounds Like: The harmony-heavy, guitar-fueled house band at a Big Pink keg party in 1968

For Fans of: Grateful Dead's American Beauty, Little Feat's Dixie Chicken, Dawes' North Hills

Why You Should Pay Attention: Already cult favorites in Nashville, Cordovas have built honorary home bases across the globe, thanks to recurring shows in Todos Santos, Mexico – where ringleader Joe Firstman runs the yearly Tropic of Cancer Concert Series – and a touring schedule that recently included headlining gigs in Sweden and a stateside run alongside the Turnpike Troubadours. The band's sound, though, is decidedly American. Caught halfway between Duane Allman's Telecaster twang, the Dead's hazy harmonies and the stoned swoon of California's folk-rock heyday, Cordovas wring new life from older influences, hoisting their freak flag high on their upcoming album, That Santa Fe Channel.

They Say: "We did everything live," Firstman says of That Santa Fe Channel, which was produced by the Milk Carton Kids' Kenneth Pattengale. "Even the harmonies were recorded together, with all three of us singing. We probably did 15 takes of the first song, 'This Town's a Drag.' Kenneth wanted it to sound as real and authentic as possible, and when I listen back, it gets better and better every time."

Hear for Yourself: "I'm the One Who Needs You Tonight" is rich with harmonies and Grateful Dead inspiration. R.C.

The Accidentals

Named among Yahoo Music’s “Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2017,” The Accidentals’ adventure began in their hometown of Traverse City, MI, when Larson, a sophomore cellist, and Buist, a junior violinist, were paired for a high school orchestra event. The gifted young musicians became fast friends and before long, bandmates. Having both grown up in musical families with professional pianists for fathers and vocalists for mothers, their shared influences bounced between classical, jazz, bluegrass, country, alt-rock, and the obscure.

The past five years have seen The Accidentals perform over a thousand live shows, including headline dates, festival sets, and shared stages along such like-minded acts as Martin Sexton, Brandi Carlile, Andrew Bird, The Wailers, Joan Baez and others. 2015 saw the band embark on their first full-scale national tour, funded in part by an Indiegogo ‘online garage sale”. That year’s SXSW debut saw them hailed by Billboard for “displaying a genre-hopping range of influences and some smart songwriting skills to go with their abundant musical chops.”  

Now, at long last, The Accidentals unveil their most compelling and finely honed work to date. Co-produced by Buist, Larson, and Dause with engineer Jason Lehning (Mat Kearney, Guster, George Jones, Alison Krauss) at Asheville, NC’s Echo Mountain Recording, ODYSSEY sees the band joined by such friends and fans as acoustic guitar maestra Kaki King, bassist – and fellow Michigander – Dominic John Davis (Jack White, Beck), Carbon Leaf guitarist Carter Gravatt, Keller Williams and The Decemberists’ Jenny Conlee, who spent three days in the studio alongside the band, lending her distinctive organ to a number of the album’s key tracks.
