TONIGHT: 333 on Broad is doing another Thursday double feature when it comes to live music. First, they’ll have local favorite Jon Byrd downstairs in the back bar. This performance is family friendly so you can bring the kids out for some dinner music. Marietta-based rocker Todd Wells will follow in the upstairs tavern.
Stephen Smith has been enjoying his stint at Bella Roma Grill on Thursdays. He performs blues and Southern rock classics with great guitar skills and a booming voice.
Muletide Perkins will be back at the 400 Block Bar to bang on his guitar and howl out some fashionable country blues tunes. It’s also service industry night so restaurant workers can come take a load off after work.
FRIDAY: Jerry on the Moon at Schroeder’s; Matt Chambers at DJ’s
Schroeder’s Courtyard hosts a much-anticipated evening with Jerry on the Moon, winners of the Roman Roast on the River and 95.7 The Ridge’s Battle of the Bands. These guys proved that they were the real deal and now we get the opportunity to see a full show of their original music. Excitement is in the air amongst the Jerry on the Moon fans.
Acoustic country and Southern rocker Matt Chambers will return to DJ’s Tavern on John Davenport. DJ’s celebrated their grand opening last weekend and had a blast doing it. Anytime Matt plays is going to be a good time as well.
Ray & Eric, two sly individuals that like to get together every now and then and do what they love to do, which is pick their favorite songs and visit with their favorite folks. These guys will be doing it again Friday night at 333 on Broad.
Watch out now! The Velcro Pygmies are back on the scene and will be blowing the roof off of Broad Street Station, figuratively of course. These guys are the ultimate glam rock party band and they have the best time doing it. It’s always fun when the Pygmies come rolling through.
SATURDAY: Atomic Boogie at 400 Block; Midnight Rounders at 333
Freeman Owle is a Cherokee historian and storyteller who will be present at Chieftains Museum on Riverside Parkway this Saturday. He is also a stone and wood carver. He will be doing a soapstone carving demonstration at 1 o’clock and will begin his Cherokee storytelling at 3pm. I was fortunate to have a conversation with Mr. Owle earlier this week and I am sure that this will be a very educational and entertaining afternoon at Chieftains. Bring the whole family.
The 400 Block is always bumping and thumping when Atomic Boogie stops by and they’ll be there Saturday night to deliver some good jump blues and rockabilly swing that will keep you hopping all night long. If you love the old school rock ‘n’ roll this is a must.
Black Friday blends Southern rock with that heavy metal thunder which makes for the ultimate biker band. These guys always put on a great high-energy show and on Saturday they’ll be at Kilroy’s Bar which is located at VFW post 4911 on Cedartown Highway.
The Midnight Rounders are coming to 333 on Broad by way of DeKalb County, Ala., and they are ready to play some good ol’ honest country music with a little Southern rock peppered in.
