Velvet Caravan

This unorthodox, high-energy, acoustic-based quintet of guitar, violin, standup bass, percussion and keyboards (including accordion) has, over the past few years, emerged as one of the shining lights of Savannah’s burgeoning music scene. In that time, the band has grown from a somewhat informal instrumental combo which routinely drew enthusiastic and loyal followers at raucous restaurant and bar gigs to a respected and admired touring act that’s as comfortable in an attentive listening room or large concert hall as they are in a crowded nightclub


Pickled Holler with Kenny George Band At Hendershots

Pickled Holler with Kenny George Band At Hendershots

Music’s elders and icons established the initial template for Rock ‘n’ Roll, but it’s the newer generation that keeps it thriving and moving forward. So credit the Kenny George Band for doing exactly that. Comprised of Kenny George (lead guitar, vocals, songwriter), Bucky Brown (drums, harmony vocals), Center Ely (steel guitar), Brooks Andrews (bass) and Scott Rankin (rhythm guitar, harmony vocals), this hardworking ensemble has earned their stripes the hard way. Performing an average of 150 to 180 shows per year throughout the heartland, they bring their music to the masses one gig at a time.
 

Pickled Holler is the story of a man, and a woman, and sometimes some other people, but don't worry this isn't a dirty story. Unless you count all of the dirty picks, muddy traveling shoes, and rustic tales from dusty eras both old and new. 

 

Matthew and J. Williams and their friends have been singing these songs from the Pickled Holler(rumored to lie somewhere between Carrollton, Americus, and Athens, GA-but that depends on who you ask) for many years, and expect to continue just as long as there are people who like to smile, dance and listen to great songs.

Ralph Roddenberry

The Ralph Roddenbery Band is a dynamic blend of Americana, roots rock, and a twist of the blues. By combining four part harmonies with energizing riffs, captivating lyrics, remarkable stage presence and a driving rhythm section, RRB is able to connect with their audience in a way that makes them feel as if they are having a one on one conversation about life. In a review from the Charleston City Paper, Michael Andrews stated that Ralph Roddenbery has an “undeniable knack for tapping into the emotional undercurrent of his songs, many of which are just as likely to make you laugh as they are to cause moistening of the lids all within the same four minutes.”  $10

6 String Drag / Mic Harrison and The High Score

6 String Drag / Mic Harrison and The High Score

6 String Drag

After 16 years in hibernation, 6 String Drag is back to remind us a few things about real rock ‘n’ roll. In the late ‘90s, the Carolina quartet stood out as pioneers of the nascent alt-country movement. Their Steve Earle-produced LP, High Hat remains an undisputed classic of its era. (the band was also on Earle's E-Squared Records)

Now battle-scarred and road-wizened, today’s 6 String Drag is the sound of kindred souls reunited, letting their own histories as human beings mingle freely around their shared love of classic, bygone sounds. Their exhilarating new recording, Roots Rock 'N' Roll, welds Kenny Roby and Rob Keller’s trademark harmonies to surging rhythms. Cut mostly live to tape, the effort is equal parts slap-back swagger and openhearted honesty – a triumphant return that celebrates rock’s first golden age by virtue of the grace, wit and insight found in Roby’s songwriting.

Mic Harrison and the High Score

Lead singer and rhythm guitarist Mic Harrison, lead guitarist Robbie Trosper, bassist Vance Hillard, acoustic guitarist Chad Pelton and drummer Don Coffey, Jr., have a chemistry that can only come from long term friendships and shared experiences. Harrison, who started his young adulthood working in a saw mill in Bradford, Tenn., a town so small it barely shows up on the map between Memphis and Jackson. He moved to Knoxville in the 1990s to become co-lead singer-songwriter (with Scott Miller) in The V-Roys, a band that defined “Americana” before it was genre. After that group split, he teamed with Trosper in the short-lived favorites The Faults and, later, teamed with Coffey in the now legendary power pop act Superdrag.  When Superdrag ended, Harrison enlisted established Knoxville rock act The High Score to back up a tour and the chemistry was so good that the partnership never ended.

Joe Willey and the Movin' Men with Salathiel Saldana

Joe Willey and the Movin’ Men, named after their song “It Must Have Been the Movin’ Man," are an Americana band playing original songs and tunes. Their strong traditional blues, celtic, bluegrass and old fiddle-tune roots come out in the songs with a few hard-driving twists here and there to keep things fresh.

Joe Willey (songwriting, vocals, guitar, harmonica, banjo and concertina) has been playing roots music in Athens, Ga. since 1984. Currently, he is in an old-time fiddle band called The Ale Raisers (2015 North Georgia Folk Festival) as well as "Joe Willey and the Movin' Men."

Dan Horowitz (standup bass, vocals) is a rock ’n’ roll legend in Athens, Ga. As the bass player in Five Eight he’s been shaking teeth loose and worrying parents since the mid eighties. He is the driving force behind Klezmer Local 42 and he plays early jazz with the Hot Hottie-Hots. Dan provides the heartbeat and backup vocals for The Movin' Men.

John Evans (lead guitar, dobro), aka Johnny Fabulous, also plays with the Borderhop Trio and The Welfare Liners. The most recent addition to the band, Johnny provides funky, face-melting flat-pick guitar and dobro grooves.

Between Naybors, Jonathan Peyton, LeeAnn Peppers

  • Hendershot's Coffee Bar

Between Naybors is a collaboration between two songwriters,Melanie Morgan( Melanie and Naybors) and Greg Benson who met in a neighborhood in West Athens. They would meet weekly to practice covers when Melanie presented her first song to Greg in June 2010. Melanie, who was just learning guitar, soon displayed a penchant for composing songs that decry social injustice and others that explore everyday topics from a unique, sometimes European angle.That is when Greg dug out some of his old songs and started to write a few new ones. In February 2012 Robert Bell joined them with his upright bass. They always had friends and neighbors joining them on some shows, but hopefully Kevin Fleming and his lap steel will be a permanent fixture.

Their songs range from the early sixties coffee house style to Richard Linda Thompsonesque duets to Tom Waitsy rhythmic rants. The band's mission is to make tangible the music of the soul while entertaining listeners of all ages.
