The Harvest Moon dining room will offer up some wholesome dinner and old time string band music by Russell McClanahan & the mOOn Crew, a group that has entertained many a happy customer in their Thursday evening tenure there.
Jon Byrd will also perform a dinner show in the downstairs bar at 333 on Broad. This is family friendly and Byrd selects from a wide range of favorite covers and his own originals.
Thursday night at the 400 Block Bar has become quite a weekly event. This week, the female trio HootN’Annie will do the entertaining. They’ve got a great sound that gets better and better every time. They definitely know how to get a good time going as well.
Rod Hamdallah is not opposed to bringing the heat with his garage blues and roots trio. Pulling from influences from the Mississippi Delta, Memphis, Chicago and the heart of blues, Hamdallah will light you up! He’s been rocking the Atlanta area since before he could buy a drink. Check him and the band out this Friday at 333 on Broad.
The Precious Lemons always pack a punch flavored with classic rock, Americana, and indie rock all blended together for a perfect good time. They have proven over the last couple of years that they are no strangers to putting on a good show and will be doing that again on Friday at the 400 Block Bar.
I hated that I missed the last Atomic Boogie at DJ’s Tavern. All I heard was that it was a fantastic time. It’s not hard to believe because wherever Atomic Boogie brings their high energy jump blues and rockabilly swing show, a good time always goes hand in hand. They’ll be back at DJ’s on Friday night for another round of what rock ‘n’ roll was in its prime.
Jon Byrd will return to 333 on Broad, this time in the upstairs lounge, where he has performed many a great show. Byrd performs a wide variety of covers and has some great originals as well. He has been a staple at the 3’s.
Self Serve will be back up at the 400 Block Bar with their salute to hard alternative rock with great covers and originals. Accustomed to blazing club stages, Self Serve tones it down just a hair and performs acoustically at 400.
If you’re a fan of Southern rock and top 40 country then the Backwater Band will be right up your alley, performing all your favorites. They’ll be getting everybody in the mood for a good time at DJ’s Tavern this Saturday.
