I am pleased to announce that the musical options for New Year’s Eve are like a Best of 2008 showcase. It’s been a great year for music in
The North Georgia Blues Brothers started out as a one-time gig for fun but managed to have multiple audiences begging for more. They will perform their fun show at MB’s Comedy & Event House with the Backstreet Boogie backing.
Black Friday and Mr. Mean’r will be hosting the party at Club Peach in its first NYE shindig. This is where the rock gets thick and heavy. Club Peach opened this year and their venue is excellent.
Backlash will rip through classic hits from the golden age of MTV rock & roll at McCrobie’s. This will make you wish you still had a tape deck in your car.
Thunderbolt Patterson will play their genre-spanning American roots rock at the Moon Roof Bar. This is David Bell and Tim Bowen of The Dirt Dobbers, who have blown us away all year.
Another Fine Mess is at Opi’s Waterfront. Another Fine Mess is perfect for a rip roarin’ New Year’s Eve. Opi’s is just the place. They opened this year in a welcome venue to a welcome crowd.
Red Eye Jedi has returned in ’08 and are playing at WOW Café & Wingery. WOW is also a welcome new venue and the return of the Jedi is an exciting thing. I would try their hottest sauce for that show.
Buck & Duke have become local favorites with a hit record release, a single that locals can be proud of, and an impressive show of talented musicians. They will be playing with Kneckdown, who have also had a very successful year playing all over
I am pleased to see that The Forum will host Scott Thompson & Peachtree Station, one of
Caveat- Some of these venues are having specials and parties. I recommend contacting them first whether by calling or checking out their website for details. There are numbers and links to the venues the venue page of the website.
