About this Event

TASTEBUD

Originally started by lead guitarist Ryan Given, Tastebud has over thirty combined years experience in the music industry and has been gaining some serious traction in the greater Atlanta area. With all members having very similar but distinct backgrounds they all bring them heavy focus on styles like jazz, funk, southern rock, and psychedelic jams. Tastebud has been described as, ” A group that really brings the magic with them, to every venue they play.”

When TasteBud was started five years ago, the band played in a few small venues right outside of the D.C. area and later relocated to Atlanta. After the band took a couple years off to develop and refine their sound, TasteBud emerged as a promising talent in the Atlanta Music Scene. TasteBud has always been a band that was built on a foundation of friendship and family. A positive message that is associated with their music is the core value that is brought with them at every show they play.

After five years, Tastebud has a sound that is more refined than ever and we are constantly looking for ways to improve our sound. TasteBud’s mission is to create a jam-style listening experience like never before!

DESMOND JONES

Desmond Jones is a five-piece American rock band from Grand Rapids, MI. With original music written to complement the group's sound as a whole, the music is centered on melodic guitar riffs, groovy bass lines, funky drum beats, and smooth saxophone. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, Phish, Miles Davis, The Band, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high-energy shows with a high level of musicianship and skillful improvisation. Each show, setlist, and song is different from night to night. The group has played over 500 shows and has been touring the country sharing the stage with bands like Papadosio, EOTO, Here Come the Mummies, Joe Hertler, Aqueous, TAUK, Dopapod, and many more. They released their debut studio album in October 2017 which NPR calls an “eclectic showcase of musical diversity”. Desmond Jones is John Nowak, Isaac Berkowitz, Chris Bota, George Falk, and John Loria.

FUX

Fux was started by Mark Sultan after years of freelance playing around the east coast. The name derives from composer Johann Joseph Fux, who helped modernize Western Music. Blending their love for Phish, Umphrey’s McGee, Pink Floyd, TAUK, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Steely Dan and many classic rock bands, Sultan set out to find his brothers (Ryan Buck and Luke Klaer) and thus in an erotic crossfire hurricane FUX was born.

Fux decided it was time to take their knowledge and mend it with their soul to work towards getting the masses dancing, laid, and spreading love. After receiving knowledge from idols Jacob Alan Cinninger, Brendan Bayliss (Umphrey’s McGee) and Gabriel Marin (Consider the Source) they were ready to finally show the world what was brewing in their mind and make music that makes sense.

Fux combines their goofy and laid back personalities on and off stage to help spread cheerfulness and positivity to the world. Don't let their silly attitudes fool you, these boys show up to play. With the deep transcendental rhythmic varieties from Luke, thunderous bass love bombs from Ryan Buck (Nasty) and sporadic ignition from Sultan, Fux will keep you dancing all night long.

“Fux really knows how to Fux”. - No Name Magazine

“Fux ain’t nothing to Fux with!” - Not a Real Band, Band

“I can Fux with it” - Lord Brandon Baylor (Humphrey’s McGoo)
