Whisperkiss and HoneyChild

Whisper Kiss is happy to play its first show of 2018! And we are honored to be sharing the bill with SJ the Honeychild as she makes her virgin voyage as a solo artist!
--------------------------
WHISPER KISS

Whisper Kiss plays acoustic pop songs that express the ever-changing human condition, weaved into a beautifully haunting musical tapestry. Start with an acoustic guitar and some crafty fingers. Add a cello, some delicate male/female vocal interplay, and a stylistic assortment of compelling melodies. Mix in a little rhythmic groove and you've got Whisper Kiss, creating a sound that is both melancholy and uplifting.

Whisper Kiss are no strangers to the Athens music scene. You’ve probably seen them onstage with Abbey Road LIVE!, Dubconscious, Wonderland Rangers, Artie Ball Swing Band, Fuzzy Sprouts, Grogus and the Athens Symphony, among others.
-------------------------
SJ THE HONEYCHILD

This is SJ's first foray into a brand new solo career. Bring pom poms.

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.”

Timi and Wonderland Rangers w/ White Rabbit Collective

White Rabbit is a collective of diverse artists skilled in many forms and genres of artistic expression. They strive to give 60's psychedelic rock a modern renaissance with an exotic twist of world influences. They refuse to be pigeon-holed or labeled as this or that. Instead they continually break free from expectations to deliver something new and unexpected, transforming with new members and influences in a perpetual evolution. Their connection to each other and our audience is palpable and the ecstatic dynamics of tension and release in their compositions act like waters flowing or fire dancing. Together they embody a chameleon that can shape-shift together to suit the environment and find the most ecstatic mode of instrumentation and song leadership. They often attempt to bridge the gap between audience and performer by inviting friends to participate with percussive instruments. The songs sing themselves - the musicians are merely multi-instrumental conduits at the service of our pent-up desires to dance.

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. on'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

One Ton Tomato

One Ton Tomato is an eclectic blend of Salsa, Mambo and Latin Jazz featuring Dr. Marc Gilley (Saxophone), Brian Smith (Bass), Greg Hankins (Piano), Dr. Todd Mueller (Latin Percussion) and Tony “Doc” McCutchen (Drum Set). Most of these musicians came together after their involvement in the UGA Salsa Band to satisfy their love for this type of music and to perpetuate the performance of this exciting, energetic and audience- friendly style of music.
The Name of the Group: as you may have guessed, the name “One Ton Tomato” is derived from the often misunderstood lyrics to one of the world’s most famous Salsa hits by Celia Cruz: “Guantanamera.”
The Repertoire: Many of the most well-known Latin Jazz and Salsa figures are represented: Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Poncho Sanchez, Michel Camilo, Mongo Santamaria, Ray Baretto, and Cal Tjader as well as Brazilian Bossa Nova/Jazz by Antonio Carlos Jobim and others. You will also hear creative, original arrangements of Jazz standards that will please your palate, whether your interest is in dancing or simply enjoying the Latin grooves.

Leah Calvert's "Satellite" w/Marlon Patton and Rick Lollar

Leah Calvert is many things, among them a singer-songwriter and in-demand Atlanta-area fiddler and vocalist. Over the years, she has shared the stage with award-winning artists including Amy Ray (Indigo Girls), Kristian Bush (Sugarland) and renowned songwriter Radney Foster. In addition to her work as a solo artist, she is a member of Atlanta acts The Dappled Grays and John Driskell Hopkins Band (Grammy winner and founding/current member of Zac Brown Band).

Calvert’s work with The Dappled Grays has spanned over a decade, during which time the group has found an audience in the United States and beyond. In 2012, they penned music for and appeared in Clint Eastwood’s film Trouble with the Curve, and their album Doin’ My Job received critical acclaim and heavy rotation worldwide, charting on both Sirius and XM.

With her new record Satellite, Calvert moves into uncharted territory, articulating a sound that is wholly her own. Though the compositions and vocal stylings offer a humble nod to her acoustic bluegrass roots, the record is musically a departure from this sound. With co-producers Marlon Patton and Rick Lollar (of Atlanta rock outfit Weisshund) providing a refined rock backdrop, Calvert deftly maneuvers through forms and styles ranging from traditional ballads to blues.

With Satellite, Calvert launches the listener directly into space; the record soars, it orbits, transmitting complex information in a palatable form. Several themes emerge: the fear and alienation that exists within our current political climate, emotional detachment from reality, and keeping safe the things which are most precious to a person -- which for Calvert include her young daughter. “Having a child,” she says, “augments the weight of the world on your heart.” In the liner notes, she includes several lines from environmental activist Wendell Berry's "How to Be a Poet," lines which ultimately became the inspiration for the record. In the poem, Berry urges readers to “Live / a three-dimensioned life; / stay away from screens. / Stay away from anything / that obscures the place it is in.” Many of the songs on Satellite read like poems, demonstrating both a clarity of thought and an urgency which demands that the listener be present in this three-dimensioned life.

Between Naybors album release show

Between Naybors is a unique blend of American and European styling of folk music with a Greenwich Village feel, focusing on social issues of the day. With members from Pennsylvania, Germany, Maine, and Georgia, they combine guitar, upright bass, keyboard, lap steel, and drums, with occasional djembe or banjo to produce an eclectic coffee-house sound. Actual neighbors, the original members Greg Benson and Melanie Morgan are the songwriters for the group, each with differing influences. Greg's lyrics derived from popular British folk team Richard and Linda Thompson, described as "exquisitely sad" music, balances well with Melanie's positive outlook and lyrics decrying social injustice with a European perspective with her charming German accent and endearing humility. Robert Bell was born and raised in Athens and has played in bands most of his adult life, from electric to acoustic to upright bass. Will Manning, a knife-smith by day and drummer by night, joined the band in 2016, along with classically-trained Kevin Fleming, who rounds out the band with lap steel, electric guitar, or banjo. Musical influences include John Lennon, Joan Baez, Neil Young, and Dave Van Ronk, who is loosely portrayed in the Coen Brothers film, Inside Llewyn Davi
