Azreal

We are a local Southern Rock band that has been playing together for about 6 years, we Started out just out of high school talking about wanting to travel around the country and play music, Tyler Phelps (Guitar) started out being the guitarist. Billy Claypool (Drums) was originally going to be Rhythm guitar, then moved to bass then eventually we decided it would be easier to find a bassist then a drummer so that’s how he started playing drums. Reiner Slay (Vocals) We always knew he was singing, and Cody McNeil (Bass) came in later on down the line when we were looking for a bassist. He originally played guitar and he was at the house one day and said “I’ll do it” so we said sure, and we all practiced with him using a guitar amp for a bass and Reiner and Billy were routed through the Drum speaker we had for our Electric set, and here we are now still acting crazy and having fun!

Haley & Alexis

“Go Big or Go Home!!!”…the motto of The Haley & Alexis Band. These dedicated and versatile performing artists demonstrate this motto at every performance. Their command of the stage, unique vocals, audience rapport and excellent musicianship always leaves the audience wanting more. Their multi-faceted sound fluently combines musical styles ranging from their first love of new modern country and traditional country of yester’ year to even a little blue grass, pop, rock, and a hint of jazz. Using their personal stories, thoughts and insights, Haley and Alexis are honing their skills as musicians and love to perform their music live.

Virginia Runnin’ 
ventures into their country music dream, consisting of experienced and passionate musicians with hand-fulls of well-crafted songs and heads full of many more. Influenced by a list of artists including classics such as Lady Antebellum, Thompson Square, Little Big Town, Jason Aldean, and Keith Urban, Virginia Runnin’ is a duo that blends rhythmic and electric guitar, heart-felt lyrics, and the occasional cry of a harmonica to emerge with songs nothing short of poetic. Hailing from North Georgia, this group of well traveled, singer-songwriter-musicians, knew early on in their lives what they were put on this earth to do – to make music.

Luna & Sol are an acoustic folk rock duo from Canton Georgia. The singer/songwriter sisters have been performing together since they were 12 and 13 years old. With an
unusual blend of harmonizing vocals that compliment slow ballads and indie rock tunes, they’re musical style is both unique and memorable.

 

 

Luna and Sol competed in an Acoustic Battle for the Honor of starting The End off !!

Cry With Us! Puddles Pity Party in Orlando

Published

Ange Alex

I owe him a poem:

Here’s a story of a sad clown who one night in February was traveling through O-town. 

He brought a suitcase and a lot of gum, he brought music and videos and tons of fun.

He sang high but mostly he sang low, and he put of one hell of a good show.

He gave a bearded guy a cupcake and danced with a lady, a wolf he would make

There is no doubt he is a boss sir, he even got love from Kevin Costner.

Fans filled the plaza for a night of delight as the 7 foot clown gave us some real insight.

He sang Bowie and Queen and even some Who, also Cash, Lorde and “Let it go” too

Videos played of pets and babies crying, also beautiful artwork and people smiling.

Last night Orlando was anything but mad as we showed much love for a clown that is sad.

Ok, I’d cry too after that poem. Here’s some more info:

If you haven’t been to see a Puddles Pity Party show, you are missing out. 

The show had me smiling and laughing so hard my stomach hurt, but I was also moved so many times by the range of Puddles voice. True entertainment never gets old and I have a feeling he is going to last forever.

I loved the interaction he had with the crowd. He pulled numerous people up to help him on stage and all of them were good sports, one man even singing the entire song, “All by myself” karaoke style! The show was so well thought out and planned but with room for some hilarious improv. Especially at the end when he pulled the 3 fans from the audience dressed like clowns. At the end of them performing together, Puddles suddenly remembers that he is scared of clowns! Genius! 

Hands down one of the best performances I’ve seen in years.

We caught up with Big Mike to ask a few questions.

TBB: Big Mike! It’s been a couple years since we had the pleasure of seeing you perform live. We are so excited to be back in Atlanta and we are ready for this show. What can you tell us about this years event?

Big Mike: Welcome back to Atlanta, Ange! We’re also excited to be in town for another wild and wonderful Holiday Jubilee. We like to honor the tradition that the Jubilee has become and don’t mess too much with the format. You can expect the always magnificent sounds of the 12-piece Kingsized Rock ‘n Roll orchestra performing your favorite holiday classics and the dazzling Dames Aflame dancers providing the glamour.
