Thirsty Thursday is even better with LIVE Country Music this week from Russell Dickerson and The Haley & Alexis Band!
Haley & Alexis open the night at 9
~Russell has just released his new single “Green Light” and he is featured on Colt Ford’ s Album “Declaration of Independence”~
From the modest pews of a West Tennessee church to the gleaming stages of Music City, twenty-five year old Russell Dickerson was destined to make his way to the spotlight.With a musical family background and the natural ability to entertain, Dickerson discovered his love for country music when his family moved to Nashville at the age of ten. “I got my first real hand-made acoustic guitar when I was sixteen,” Dickerson says, “I was so excited, and even though I couldn’t play it yet, I started a band.”
Soon after, Dickerson began songwriting and cultivating a live show experience based on influences like Garth Brooks and Keith Urban. “When I write songs,” he says, “I picture looking out at the audience and not just seeing, but feeling their response. Garth’s shows are like a drama; overflowing with so may emotions. I try to evoke those same kinds of emotions in my songs and then take them full-circle on stage.” With a commanding presence both off and on the stage, the 6’4” Dickerson blends his rich vocal quality with a style all his own. “You’ve gotta’ respect the traditional music while doing your own thing at the same time,” he says. “That’s what’s great about country music – you can do that.”
Continually writing, recording, and performing energetic shows, Dickerson has recently signed a publishing deal with one of Nashville’s most successful independent publishers, Combustion Music, along with signing a management deal with Dennis Entertainment, and booking with CAA.
~ Haley & Alexis will be performing some new Tunes “You can think I’m Crazy” and “You don’t know Me at All”~
Haley & Alexis motto is “Go Big or Go Home!!!” 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.True Georgia girls, Haley and Alexis, identical twins, were born in Atlanta. Their Dad was an Optometrist and Mom stayed at home to watch over the girls and their two younger brothers. Haley and Alexis began “performing” as soon as they could talk and their performance debut was at five years of age when they began putting on their own shows.
After graduating from Auburn University in 2010, Haley with a degree in Radio, TV, and Film, and Alexis with a degree in Mathematics, the Haley and Alexis Band was formed. They launched their career at Wild Bill’s in Duluth, GA, one of the Southeast’s premier concert venues, playing to a packed house.
Though identical twins, Haley and Alexis are easily identified on stage. Haley is more of a high-heel girl; whereas Alexis is more of a rocker. Both girls are unique in their own way and show it in all of their performances.
