Grizz Fest is truly going to be a musician’s celebration of Kevin Meaders the music man. There are quite a few surprises in store for this amazing event, so be sure to grab your tickets now to ensure your place!
Grapevine Talent has assembled an incredible lineup and folks continue to reach out who would like to be a part.

There have been quite a few passings that have occurred in many of my friends’ lives, some which have affected a few and some of which have affected many. To me, Grizz Fest is not only a celebration of the man they called Grizz, who touched so many and made so many special musical moments happen, but it is also an opportunity to remember our friends who have passed on from this realm.

Enjoy this classic footage (almost 90 minutes!) from 1993 at the Variety Playhouse. Derek Trucks Band OPENED for The Grapes and Derek sits in with them.

The 1st annual Grizz Fest is the brainchild of Grapevine Talent (Fortin, Davidson & Hurley) and talented musicians from all over the country who have been positively impacted by Robert Kevin Meaders (1961-2019), aka The Grizz.

Kevin was a key player in the L5P underground music scene in the ‘80s & ‘90’s, while playing in bands such as The KIND and YUR. He also was manager/sound man for The Grapes, and formed Odom/Meaders Music Business Management Company with Bunky Odom (The Allman Brothers Band). The roster included Derek Trucks, Col. Bruce Hampton, The Grapes, Dr. Dan, The Urban Shake Dancers, and many more. Grizz touched a whole new generation of Atlanta musicians by doing what he loved most – sound engineering, guiding careers & making tons of friends along the way.

Grizz Fest is a celebration of Kevin’s life, music, and friendships. Please come and help us celebrate the legendary life of Robert Kevin Meaders, aka Grizz.

This will be a very special concert for Grizz, and I want to send a heartfelt thanks to Terminal West for providing us a venue worthy of this jam! Enjoy the video featuring The Grapes from January 2014 at the Variety Playhouse. We’ll be feeling that wonderful healing energy in just about six weeks y’all!

We’re getting oh so close to a form of musical nirvana that will leave you blissed out for the foreseeable future I hope! I’m very excited to be bring you the masterful musical minds (and beyond!) of Asheville’s own Snake Oil Medicine Show after quite a few years’ absence.

Please enjoy the most recent video footage of SOMS performing at Pisgah Brewing Co. in Black Mountain, NC, celebrating the beginning of the Chinese New Year. We’re in for a treat before, during, and after their set I can tell you right now! Snake Oil Medicine Show will be performing at 7:30 PM on Saturday, April 7.

mikhail.petersonI am also quite excited to be featuring the skills of songwriter extraordinaire Mikhail Peterson, former front man for Copious Jones, with his new band called The GMOS.

Harvest Hoot_StageThat’s right y’all! Before you know it, the weekend of April 6-7 will be here, and you KNOW where you should be – HOOOOOOOOOOOOTENANNY!! I am grateful to still be able to bring quality live music to the community, and the Harvest Family Hoot is a celebration of that continuation. It’s been a long strange trip for the last 20 years, and I look forward to what the future brings on this level. (Blue Ridge) HarvestFest, the 19 editions of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny that followed, the Annual Holiday Hootenanny, the free community events, and all the TDawg shows over the years in and around the Southeast have all had a strong common bond in the amazing talent that has always come together to produce memorable and transcending music experiences for just a few patrons or a few thousand and all points in between.

Similar to the final Back Porch Hootenanny in 2016, this upcoming Harvest Family Hoot is bringing together musical talent that spans the history of TDawg Presents from 1998 to the present. I am honored that all the musicians involved have been a part of the journey – we’re in for a weekend of sit-ins and jams that will leave you right where you need to be!

The band closing the The Shed Stage (scroll down for schedule), Deep Blue Sun, is known for their amazing jams and musicianship, and you can rest assured they will leave nothing on the the table at the Hoot! Below is a video from the 4th Annual Atlanta Holiday Hootenanny featuring some special guests, Jeff Mosier and Bobby Miller among them, who will be present at the Harvest Family Hoot. Please note the use of only one hand playing bass 😉 You can expect more of this in six weeks, and more! Enjoy!
