$10 Adv – $14 Door
Doors @ 7 PM
The Donna Hopkins Band is a hard rock n' roots trio. Playing a blues rock mix of original music, the show never disappoints. The band consists of Donna Hopkins on lead guitar and vocals, a bass player, and Richie Jones on drums and backup vocals. Richie calls the band "Government Hopkins" because of the energy and sound they put out on stage. Donna’s guitar playing is comparable to Duane Allman or Derek Trucks, and her singing is comparable to Bonnie Raitt. This is truly a band destined for stardom!
Alex Guthrie is an Atlanta-based singer/songwriter and guitarist. His powerful, soulful voice and insightful lyrics have established him in the Southeast as a must-see artist. Combining influences from classic rock, blues, and folk, Alex has a sound that bridges genres and connects, emotionally, to the music lover in everyone. If Folk-Rock is the best category in which to place Alex, as some say, he accepts it with a broad, open smile and says, “then I just want to make some Great Folk’in Music.”
As we enter into this new age of wisdom and enlightenment, one band stands above all as the crowning jewel to lead the world into higher consciousness. Straight from the ethers comes Divine Love Mission, a socially and spiritually conscious pop band whose futuristic songs carry a refreshing message of love, mind and grace into a world succumbed by egoic infatuation.
This dynamic pop power trio consisting of synthesizer, guitar, drums and pop vocals, includes singer / multi-platinum selling music producer, FORD who's productions have collectively sold more than 30 million copies world-wide. Together with drummer Benjamin Frame and guitarist Geoff Marcus, they set out to create a brand new timeless sound that unifies digital and analog together as one, for the soundtrack to a most divine story. Let this concept album be the epic musical journey that will forever shape human consciousness, in preparation of a world with limitless possibility.
When Carly Gibson and BJ Wilbanks first began collaborating musically during the summer of 2011, it was like milk chocolate meeting peanut butter…a beautiful and tasty combination! Up to that point, they had each been pursuing separate solo singer/songwriter careers. Joining forces as Gibson Wilbanks (often performing with bass and drums behind them), they have combined their considerable songwriting and musical skills to create the unique and popular Southern bluesy sound that helped them to win the coveted songwriter’s open mic at Eddie’s Attic in December of 2011.
In 2013 close friend and harmonica genius Brad Bauman joined the ranks of Gibson Wilbanks, rounding out the sound with his tasty, soulful blues licks. Think Gregg Allman meets Bonnie Raitt meets Michael Hedges meets Norton Buffalo with a dash of Al Green–in short, an entertaining and joyful experience not to be missed!
