Mark Michelson & Friends Originals & Improv w/ The Reese Boyd Project

Join Mark Michelson, Reese Boyd, Jason Chumley and Ed Shelton for a night of original and improv music. Mark Michelson is well known as a jam leader around Atlanta. Mark has also written 25-30 songs ranging from rock to bluegrass. Jason Chumley, Reese Boyd and Ed Shelton also contribute to the unique original songs with their own originals and improv music. Together, the band performs original music best described as "psychedelic jazz mixed with prog funk rooted in bluegrass." Shades of Floyd, King Crimson, Zeppelin, Puscifer, Yes, Hendrix, String Cheese Incident and The Dead converge. Mark Michelson & Friends original songs are sometimes danceable, other times mesmerizing, and always entertaining. 

Opening act The Reese Boyd Project featuring 15 year old prodigy and multi-instrumentalist Reese Boyd. If you've never seen Reese perform, you'll be amazed at his command of the guitar. If you've heard him before, you know this is a show not to be missed. Since he was 8 years sold, Reese has been performing with some of the best musicians and bands in Atlanta playing Steely Dan, Rush, Yes, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Gentle Giant and more.

Musicians are welcome to join in if you're down for some improv. (Note, it's not an open mic jam, it's an improv jam. Please get in touch with Mark before the show if you wanna play.) Bring what you need.
