It takes a long time for Dean Fields to wake up. Often Ill get up in the middle of night, change the cat box, and go back to bed with no recollection of it. Im an over-thinker and an undecider. I make up words. I went to grad school to pursue music and left grad school to pursue music. I moved 7 times in 3 years between 4 states. I have 300 voices with 300 accents for 301 different moods. I cannot park a car.

My wife is the coolest person I know. And she is not a horse.
Currently, Im revving up to release some brand new music. It’s a 5 song EP called “Under A Searchlight Moon,” and it’s the best thing I’ve ever created. Recently, I got married and signed a publishing deal. In some ways it feels like I just woke up and while I was sleeping I changed the cat box, recorded 4 albums, and played more than a thousand shows.
This time around, It was important to me that the album be an appropriate representation of my music for folks at solo shows and band shows. I’m lucky to have friends who are insanely talented and practiced musicians who are sensitive to my vision. I trusted them with these songs and the results are my best work yet. I can’t wait for you to hear it. And I can’t wait to try and outdo it the next time around.

Truett Lollis Trio is Marietta premier blues band! Mixing Albert/Freddie King-SRV-Hendrix-Allman styles with pure Dixie-Fried blue-eyed rock/soul. Road tested funky rhythm section w/ young guitar prodigy out to rock the roadhouse! Old-school style rendered with youthful fervor served up w/ some soulful originals.Born the only son of a railroad man in Cobb County, Georgia on Robert Johnson’s birthday; he grew up on a steady diet of southern rock and blues. Young Truett picked up a guitar at age 12 and was soon schooling his instructor on vintage blues licks from his major influences, Albert King, Freddie King, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughn and the likes. He is now the hottest young guitar slinger in Marietta Ga! Truett is only 22, but an “old soul” when it comes to blues. He writes and sings as well as he plays the guitar and has the distinctive ability to infuse his audience with the soulfulness that makes him an entertaining performer as well. He easily appeals to audiences, young and old.

Cry With Us! Puddles Pity Party in Orlando

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. The show is all about holiday nostalgia, whatever that means to you: Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Donnie Hathaway, The Grinch, Rankin Bass, Peanuts, the Dreidel Song? It’s all in there.
