Join us for a Sunday evening of Americana, Folk and Blues with the Joe McGuinness Trio and Brian Revels!
Doors @ 7 PM
A favorite among music lovers of all ages, Joe McGuinness has exploded onto the Atlanta Blues/Roots scene. Even those whose musical palates aren't first drawn to the blues/folk/americana music, find themselves captivated by the indescribable melodic quality that can only be described as "Joe". Aside from his unmatched musical talent, Joe is widely recognized for his long dreadlocks and the slide that he keeps there. Combined with soulful lyrics and truly original vocal sound, Joe's outstanding guitar playing and natural fingerpicking abilities make him an unparalleled musical must see!
Joe is joined by Rafael Pereira and Drew Lloyd to form the Joe McGuinness Trio.
Brian Revels is a 26 year-old singer/songwriter from "the Classic City", Athens, Ga. Much like his current home in Atlanta, his songs are restless. Frenetic thoughts find their way on to melodies and progressions that are sometimes subdued but sometimes equally as hectic. His lyrics span the entire range of human emotions and the nuances within. Formerly an English major, he reveals access to all of your favorite literary cliches: irony, satire, sarcasm, good-old-fashioned story-telling, etc. He sees just as much beauty in sorrow as in love and as much hope in the world as despair. His songs mean only to translate his relationship with that world. They'll probably never be Top 40 and that's a fact he cherishes.
An addict for passion and bearing his soul, Revels is a student of the world and the music it sings. He's in it for the long haul. Any support, moral or otherwise, to further this quest is greatly appreciated.
