Event description
So excited to have Allgood and The Bitteroots Playing the Garden!

About this Event

Allgood Music Company emerged from Athens, GA in the early 1990s, taking its high-energy guitar-driven blues-rock across the nation to the tune of roughly 200 shows a year. After securing a deal with A&M Records, Allgood was part of the 1993 H.O.R.D.E. tour along with Blues Traveler, Widespread Panic, and Col. Bruce Hampton and the ARU. Over its eight-year initial run, Allgood took the stage at places ranging from Red Rocks to the Ranch Bowl [for real - a bowling alley] often appearing with other new bands like Dave Matthews Band, Gov't Mule, and Phish. At other times, Allgood opened for rock giants like The Band, Neil Young, and the Allman Brothers Band. Allgood broke up in 1995, yet somewhat mysteriously none of its members stayed in the music business. Like an endangered species, since the early 2010s, Allgood has played a few select shows, roughly every two years. When Allgood plays, veteran fans remember why their 90s run was so magical, and a new generation gets to be part of the action. Some report fatigue, headache, and muscle soreness the following day.

For 2021, Allgood brings its own brand of classic Georgia boogie-woogie back for a run across the southeast. With original members Corky Jones (vocals, guitar), Mike Sain (bass, vocals) and Clay Fuller (lead guitar), each Allgood appearance features songs from its 1990s era albums Ride The Bee and Uncommon Goal. This spring, Allgood will also unleash material from a project currently in the works.

THE BITTEROOTS

Since its founding in 2008, The Bitteroots’ groove-oriented rock ‘n’ roll has drawn comparisons to the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Melissa Etheridge and Janis Joplin, and has earned the band frequent appearances onstage at some of the Southeast’s most prestigious venues and music festivals.

The Bitteroots' latest full-length album is currently in production and slated for release in the first half of 2021. The band's fifth album of original music, "Derailer," was released in March 2019.

Driven by Laura Dees’ powerful, soulful lead vocals, the band also includes founding members Bill Taylor (bass, backing vocals) and Mike Davis (drums). Derron Nuhfer joined the group in 2014, adding saxophone to what has become the band’s unique sonic signature. Hard-driving guitarist PJ Poellnitz joined the band in 2018.

The Bitteroots have shared the stage with: Butch Trucks (The Allman Brothers Band), Kool & The Gang, Mavis Staples, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Everclear, Drivin’ n’ Cryin’, Freddy Jones Band, Allgood Music Company, Col. Bruce Hampton, Arrested Development, Jupiter Coyote, 7 Walkers (Bill Kreutzmann of The Grateful Dead), Elephant Revival, The Milk Carton Kids, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Anders Osborne, Coy Bowles (Zac Brown Band), The Ries Brothers, Dead Confederate, Michelle Malone, Cigar Store Indians, Adron, The Shadowboxers, Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics, Delta Moon, Eliot Bronson, Sydney Rhame, Tedo Stone, honeyhoney, Mother’s Finest and many other great bands and artists.
