Nominated in the 2012 GA Music Awards for Best Country Band, as well as in 2011 and 2012 as Georgia Country’s Best Band, Reluctant Saints is not your ordinary country band, or even an ordinary band. But don’t take our word for it. Just listen and you’ll see.
This band began as a quest to take all the things that make great bands great and put them in one package. Picture this… Mark and Brian sat down together and decided to take a look at the rock and roll bands that have been around for 35 years or more and are still at it and see what makes them great. Songwriting? Tom Petty. Musicianship? Allman Brothers. Vocals? The Eagles. There are others, but that’s a good start. Let’s take all the best parts of these bands and put one together that has all of it!” Joining forces with singer/drummer/banjo playing Gary Chumney and guitarist/vocalist Nathan Morgan made all the pieces come into place to do that.
Reluctant Saints combines hooky songs, 3 & 4 part vocal harmony, dual lead guitars, and fine musicianship in one package. Not just another band, these guys put on a live show you HAVE to see. The look, the sound, the passion for music, the catchy tunes… This band has it all.
Downside is a highly energetic rock band blaring out of Atlanta, Georgia with aggressive vocals, thunderous drum beats, and an overall attacking sound. The band chemistry has been present for over a decade, but the stars began to align in 2011 when Downside performed on legendary stages throughout Atlanta such as the Tabernacle, Masquerade, 10 High and many more.
Cry With Us! Puddles Pity Party in Orlando
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.
