The Grapes

The Grapes were formed in Atlanta, Ga. in 1986. Early on, their unique sound helped define the Jam Band genre on a national scale. Combining experimental sounds of both rock, blues, and funk their original music captivated a generation of loyal fans. They toured heavily across the United States performing 250 plus shows per year through the late 1990s. Influences included The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan,and many more.They produced numerous albums and shared the stage with Widespread Panic, Phish, The Black Crowes, and many more.

Deep Blue Sun

Deep Blue Sun plays a signature blend of original rock, funk and soul, and have been a mainstay of the Atlanta music scene since the 90s, headlining festivals and clubs throughout the south. Their roots trace back to Apple Peru, one of several bands that formed (and rehearsed) alongside the Grapes in the "Cleburne House," the legendary music/party house in Little 5 Points that served as ground zero for the Atlanta jam scene in the 80s. DBS is known for their master musicianship, epic leads, tight harmonies and melodic, danceable originals. -- and they always include some fun, deep-cut cover tunes to keep the crowd on its feet. Col. Bruce Hampton, Jimmy Hall, Oteil Burbridge and other musical greats have joined them onstage, and Yonrico Scott calls them the "best kept secret of the jam band world."

Copious Jones

Copious Jones is a diverse 6-piece band that defies genre and has quickly become recognized as one of the most promising talents coming out of Atlanta today. Consisting of 3 friends from music school who joined creative forces with 3 respected veterans from the local jazz/Latin scene, the band draws from a wide-variety of styles (including, but not limited to: progressive-rock, funk, jazz, Latin, classical, African, blues, folk, jam, electronic) to create an ever-evolving, unique musical experience based around inspiring singer/songwriter, Mikhail Petersen. Audience members of all generations can be found in their ever-growing fan base, and in just 4 years the band has gone from being an unrecognized act on the local dive-bar scene to playing regularly in some of Atlanta's most reputable venues (Variety Playhouse, Smith's Olde Bar, Hard Rock, etc.) as well as securing spots in 2014's Mountain Jam (New York), and Bear Creek (Florida) Music Festivals. Every passing day adds a little more to the amazing story of these aspiring musicians. With decades of combined musical experience the band has been attracting attention from many notable figures in the music industry, such as: Chuck Leavell (The Allman Brothers, The Rolling Stones), Rob Barraco (Phil Lesh & Friends, Dark Star Orchestra) and the owner of Tree Sound Studios, Paul Diaz (Elton John, Dave Matthews, Outkast). In June 2013 the band signed with entertainment powerhouse, Blingnot Entertainment, opening the doors to a whole new world of possibilities which the band is currently exploring with their sights set high, and fans and band mates alike are excited about the bright future of this still-young band.

Ain't Sisters

Forged in the murky depths of a Folly Beach holding cell, the Ain't Sisters have transcended their origins as outlaw street performers to grace the stages of the Southeast with their unique brand of funk-infused, blues-driven Indie Rock. The power duo fronting this outfit, composed of Arrie Bozeman and Barb Carbon, blends tight harmonies and smart lyrics with soulful, booty-shakin' melodies. Dynamic musicians and songwriters, they share an equal propensity for irony, humor, ferocity, and heart-on-sleeve authenticity. With common roots in Atlanta, Georgia, Arrie and Barb have been friends and cohorts for over 10 years, but The Ain't Sisters is their first official venture. Together, their musical influences range from Patty Griffin to Prince and from Lucinda Williams to Rage Against the Machine. Their shared belief system is underpinned by the idea of music as community - that it should be fun and bring people together, and that's exactly what they intend to do. Their long awaited and much anticipated debut studio album, "Marrow," was released November 23, 2018.

Dotline Projekt

Dotline Projekt is a group of professional Atlanta musicians who perform original songs and compositions, as well as classic and creative arrangements of rock, fusion, and jam band favorites.

Donna Hopkins Band

Donna Hopkins is the real deal. Georgia Music Magazine calls Donna a “genuine triple threat” due to her prowess as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. Born and raised on an Alabama farm, Donna witnessed life in the South first hand, channeling it into the soulful music that she creates and performs. Music runs in her family; her mother performed rock and roll in go-go boots and mini-skirts and her grandfather was a fine bluegrass musician in his own right. Following in their footsteps, Donna is a consummate seasoned performer with many songs and performances under her belt. As a young teenager, Donna recalls sneaking out to the MGM Grand in famous Muscle Shoals, Alabama to jam with David Hood, Roger Hawkins, and Harrison Calloway…it’s not many who can say they cut their teeth with members of Aretha Franklin’s band! National acts that Donna has opened for or performed with over the years: BloodKin, Big Bill Morganfield, Col. Bruce Hampton, Charley Pride, Chris Hicks (of the Marshall Tucker Band), Clint Black, Conway Twitty, David Allan Coe, Derek Trucks Band, Donna The Buffalo, Donnie McCormick, Emily Saliers (of the Indigo Girls), Francine Reed, Gatemouth Brown, George Jones, George Porter, Jr., Indigo Girls, Jeff Sipe, Joe Bonamassa, King Johnson, Lorrie Morgan, Lee Boys, Little Joe, Luther “Houserocker” Johnson, Martina McBride, Mel Tillis, Michelle Malone, Mudcat, Oak Ridge Boys, Oliver Wood, Rita Graham, Sammy Blue, Sean Costello, Robert Cray, Ronnie Milsap, Stevie Wonder, Tanya Tucker, Tinsley Ellis, Todd Nance (of Widespread Panic), Travis Tritt, Vince Herman (of Leftover Salmon)
