Bennie Gray & The Trailer Park Cowboys

Everything that has happened to us throughout life has been leading us here. Here is Bennie Gray & The Trailer Park Cowboys, a rowdy bunch of seasoned musical rejects from the dirty south concerned more with country than western, more roll than rock, and above all, songs about real life! We are coming to your town soon spinning tales of broken hearts and busted bottles, murder, infidelity, good times, bad times and yes, even redemption. Ears are gonna ring, amps are gonna blow, clubs will run outta beer, and then the end, when it's all said and done... you will believe!

Chloe & The Ramblers


Duality is an Atlanta based five-piece promising an overdue return to "Epic" rock. Duality is committed to creating music that is both musically powerful...and lyrically meaningful. The band has graced the stages of most live music venues around metro Atlanta over the last ten years and was formerly known as "OnuS". Part U2, part Van Halen, the band is made up of veteran touring pros who employ a purely collaborative creation process. "American Chameleon" was the debut CD for the band. A follow up effort is currently in the works.
After a decade performing live, Duality is dialed in. Duality is tight. Duality is polished. Duality will leave your guests spent and panting for more!


Formed in the summer of 2017, Scarlett plays a powerful mix of melodic original music with a uniquely elegant yet driving groove. We combine meaningful lyrics with powerful hooks so you'll be guaranteed to be singing along with us on the first listen!

Crooked Sidewalks

Crooked Sidewalks are a self-proclaimed "dad crisis rock” band, borrowing a hearty healthy blend of FM radio rock from the 60's and 70's, smothered and covered with three decades of college radio rock with some ground artsy static bits for flavor and texture.

The members of Crooked Sidewalks initially met while getting items appraised on Antique's Roadshow and discovered they shared a similar love of music and an had an odd affinity for the 1986 classic movie “Howard The Duck.” Armed with years of experience playing live music, Crooked Sidewalks embarked on an ambitious journey to create original rock music with the hope of cashing in on that sweet, sweet Spotify money. Of course it would have been easier to start yet another tribute band but the oversaturated market of Pink Floyd, Beatles, and Tom Petty tribute acts forced them in another direction.

Jeremy Keen, guitarist/singer/songwriter/avid birdwatching enthusiast, is adept at finding inspiration in the most uninspiring and mundane of daily activities, usually, resulting in songs steeped in escapism, of love lost, or of drinking beer in the basement. Many times, it is all three at once. Originally from Houston, he spent his college years and beyond bumming around the Chicago scene playing in bands and getting into fights. Since 1999, he’s toured the states, recorded and self-released albums with his friends and his bands have opened for such notable acts as Sleeping at Last, Pete Krebs, Derek Webb, Denison Witmer, Sarah and Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek), Buddy Guy, Old 97s, Switchfoot, and Company of Thieves.

Reed Parsons, bassist/used appliance repairman, uses quality pro gear, NO DRUGS OR DRAMA, and he has his own car. Most of the rehearsal and recording is being done in the basement of Matt McKenny, drummer/hand model/vintage cowbell collector, who's happy to offer because he hates moving his shit around all the time.

The guys are currently in the lab recording material for a forthcoming EP expected to land as soon as they get off their asses.

Flashback Flash

Flashback Flash is vintage rock for the modern listener. They make you feel a pleasant nostalgia with complex yet tasteful guitar leads; the homage to guitar masters like Hendrix present in every song. Tender yet haunting vocals powerful enough to stop you in your tracks combine with a crushing, high energy rhythm section, creating a sound best described as “Queens of the Stone Age meets the Beatles.” They hit the sweet spot of driving power and stunning flare without distracting.

Making modern danceable music with a classic rock sound, PV23 is an up and coming groovy indie rock band from the Atlanta metro area. An eclectic fusion of progressive instrumentation with catchy pop melodies and harmonies, their music defies genre and label. Every live show is a new experience with unexpected plot twists and energetic stage presence. Combining a fresh sound and youthful energy with virtuosic talent, you can always count on PV23 to put on a show that is both unpredictable and unforgettable. They have been featured on local TV and radio and their profile continues to rise having won the 2018 Tannery Row Original Series competition against numerous local artists and being declared the Atlanta Next2Rock competition winners. PV23 released their first EP 'Soul Dance' this year and are working on an upcoming full length album while their fanbase rapidly expands.
