About this Event

CASUAL CADENZA

The Vinyl Suns / Jacks River Band

*********************************************

CASUAL CADENZA

Casual Cadenza is a four-piece rock/jam band hailing from Atlanta, GA with roots in Athens, GA. Feel-good music is what the band is all about. Their style is grounded largely in a southern-influenced sound, with a strong blend of catchy hooks and extended jams. In just 2 short years, the band has become a force to reckon with in the local jam scene, headlining venues across Atlanta. The band's instrumentation includes DJ Rees on electric guitar and vocals, Kyle Rees on drums, Ben Fraser on bass and vocals, and Spencer Williams on keyboards. High energy peaks and improvisation are the name of the game. You can hear a strong influence in Casual Cadenza's sound from bands like the Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers Band, and Phish to name a few.

THE VINLY SUNS

The Vinyl Suns, a Blues Rock band based out of Athens, GA, prides themselves on bringing an eclectic mix of musical styles to the table. While Blues Rock is their primary focus, they throw in a clever mix of Southern and Progressive Rock. These talented musicians come from very diverse musical backgrounds, but they come together in a way that pushes the musical envelope, telling their unique story, while inviting the audience to do the same. They draw inspiration from their own personal experiences, and tell stories through their music that will truly stick with the listeners. What sets them apart is that each song is a living, breathing piece of work. Each song is open to innovation, whether it be onstage, in the studio, or just jamming out together. The deep musical connection that these musicians have with each other ensures that each performance is true to what they stand for as artists.

JACKS RIVER BAND

Known for their driving blues-rock style and extended improvised jams, Jacks River Band performs with an undeniably contagious energy. Their improvisational funkadelic rock sound features a hard hitting rhythm section, gut-busting guitar leads, and soul soothing vocals. Drawing on legendary influences such as The Allman Brothers Band, Deep Purple, The Grateful Dead, and The Derek Trucks Band, Jacks River Band delivers a uniquely blended sound that pushes the boundaries of blues rock, yet still remains familiar.

Their debut album, "Woodland Creatures" was recorded in Atlanta by Tony Terrebone at Zac Recording. The music brings to light the diverse musical influences found among the band members. Tracks like “Bleedin’ Blues” and “Bear Left the Woods” pay homage to the great musical legacy of the Blues, while “Lay Me Down” features hard nosed guitar licks and tribal drum beats reminiscent of the band Tool. Hard driving grooves on “Funkfucious Say”, “Soul Free” and “One Eyed Jack” transport the listener to the early 70’s rock scene, and the feel good, funky vibes on “St Charles” and “Bullfrog” get everyone on the dance floor.

In the past year, Jacks River Band has rocked the stage at renowned venues around Atlanta such as Eddies Attic, Smith's Olde Bar, Madlife Stage & Studios, & 37 Main; as well as touring regionally to places like Athens, Macon, Milledgeville, Knoxville, and Boone. They have given back to the community by partnering with The Songs For Kids Foundation and performing at their annual benefit concerts. Their music has been regularly featured on Atlanta's Rock 100.5 "Local Licks" and was featured on Atlanta's 97.1 The River's "Live Lounge Acoustic Classics".
