$10 Adv – $12 Door
Doors @ 7:30 PM
Escape Vehicle hit the ground running in the spring of 2001 and since then has established itself as a hard-working, professional band by touring in and around the southeast. Undoubtedly, Escape Vehicle takes a selective ‘classic rock’ approach to their tune selection. However, the band also delves in other musical genres such as bluegrass, reggae, blues, and even country. The band’s originals are their heart and soul and their pride stems from playing a different show every time they hit the stage. The wide variety of their playlists has helped them gain popularity with jam-band lovers and rock ‘n’ roll fans alike. We invite you to come out and let the music speak for itself…
A home-grown Georgia native, BJ Wilbanks creates blues-infused music reminiscent of a bygone era, combining deeply-rooted Delta blues, country, funk, soul, and acoustic Southern rock to create a sound that is familiar, yet uniquely his own. His heartwarming tales of heartache, love, and home combine artfully with an engaging live performance that, in one moment, can sit you back in your chair and in the next, rock you right back out of it! BJ's original songs range from break-your-heart romantic to stomp-your-foot grooving, merging back-porch soul rhythm with a gospel vocal overtone and a slanky, steady beat. He'll often sling his guitar over his lap to play a slide tune that evokes the image of old field working men and chase it with a contrasting tune filled with sweet strumming, gentle singing and smooth picking.
