The Alabama-born, Tennessee-bred Southern rock band, The Vegabonds got their start in Alabama, after meeting while attending Auburn University in 2009 and playing the college circuit across the Southeastern United States. Their popularity quickly burgeoned to the point where they found their fans singing along word-for-word to their first hits like “Georgia Fire” and “Shaky Hands.” From Ole Miss to South Carolina, students buzzed about The Vegabonds authentic sound and their seemingly effortless ability to bring the house down. Through word of mouth, the group’s fan base rapidly grew, and the guys learned they had something distinctive with their eclectic mix of Southern Rock, Country, and earnest songwriting. Their DIY efforts delivered three full-length albums and an EP before partnering with Blue Élan Records.

With a sound reminiscent of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers mixed with the grit and twang of the Allman Brothers Band, The Vegabonds deliver a sensational performance with powerhouse guitar riffs and impactful songwriting, night after night. Their hard work and unbridled talents have not gone unnoticed; the group has opened for such notable acts as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackberry Smoke, and the late Gregg Allman and delivered rousing performances at festivals like Peach Festival, Sweetwater 420, Magnolia Fest, Sunfest and Taste of Randolph. In addition to countless dates throughout the Southeast, the band has toured Europe three times, played multiple dates in Canada and have visited every corner of the US.

A group of five musicians with myriad influences between them, The Vegabonds are fronted by lead vocalist and songwriter Daniel Allen, with Richard Forehand (lead guitar/vocals), Paul Bruens (bass), Beau Cooper (keys/vocals), and Bryan Harris (drums) rounding out the quintet.



The Stews’ sound takes inspiration from many different genres, styles, and moods across a wide range of music. Consisting of four members, Preston Hall (Lead Vocals, Lead Guitar), Blake Dobbs (Rhythm Guitar), Bennett Baugus (Bass Guitar) and Wyatt Griffith (Drums and Backing Vocals), the band formed in the fall of 2020 in Auburn, Alabama. With very diverse influences, the music created by this group of young, creative musicians is enjoyed by people of all walks of life. On April 15th, 2021 The Stews released their first collection of music: a five-song, self-titled EP, recorded at F.A.M.E. Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. It was well-received by listeners, leaving the band excited for what the future has to hold.

About The Brothers Gillespie:

The Brothers have always had an interest in music, playing any and every instrument they could find. In 2015 things came to a head. After singer/songwriter Davis Gillespie returned from a semester at the University of Tennessee with a handful of songs, the other brothers (drummer Clay Gillespie and lead guitar Aaron Gillespie) set to work on actually crafting a set list “just in case” someone called up one day in need of a band.

To their surprise, people did end up calling, and The Brothers Gillespie started playing hometown shows in Waynesville, North Carolina. There they came in to their own playing a blend of rock, country, folk, and alternative music they dub “Slacker Country”. After a couple years of successful area shows, The Brothers took a year sabbatical in Johnson City, Tennessee, where they honed their craft, took up a residency at nearby landmark Capone’s, toured the region, and recorded their seminal album “Love & Death”.

Now The Brothers return home to reunite with bass player and “fourth brother” Zack Edwards and tour the South East bringing their own brand of Slacker Country to the masses.
