Have you purchased your ticket to the 9th Annual Holiday Hootenanny ~ A Benefit for Atlanta Habitat yet? It’s a great way to support any live show if you know you are going. This is going to be an amazing show with some fantastic musical highlights that will satisfy your needs until next year’s edition! Plenty of sit-ins throughout the evening, enough to quench your thirst for one-of-a-kind jams and times with friends and family.

================================

Jim Lauderdale has a real treat for you this year. His entire set will consist of songs he co-wrote with the late lyricist for the Grateful Dead, Robert Hunter. Y’all this 75 minutes of original music will truly be a one-of-a-kind, with acoustic, bluegrass & electric with horns segments all coming together.

To follow this with a tribute to the late Johnny Knapp, truly loved by many in the music community musicians and fans alike, is going to be a remarkable journey through music history. There will be two sides to the Johnny Knapp set – 1) Jazz as seen through the eyes of Johnny Knapp by Jez Graham; 2) Songs that Col. Bruce Hampton & Johnny Knapp loved performing together. Those two men had such mutual admiration and impact musically on each other that it’s hard to mention one without the other.

No musical experience is necessary to participate.

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.

2014 Jerry Day ATL v9 - marketing

The summer keeps on truckin’ along, which means it’s time for the 7th Annual Jerry Day ATL at Terminal West this Sunday, July 27!  We are extremely excited to bring to you a wonderful showcase of the music that was/is The Grateful Dead and the spirit that envelops music fans of all ages.  Out of this spirit arises interest in the world of roots music – bluegrass, blues, jazz, classic/outlaw country to name a few genres under the umbrella – which is what has been at the epicenter of the Dead’s sound and style.

You can purchase your advance tickets online at the Terminal West website or at the box office TUE-FRI 11AM-5PM and on show nights.  Advance tickets are also available at Maple Street Guitars and The Chamblee Bistro.

I’d like to send out a BIG heartfelt THANK YOU out to our sponsors for your kindness and support as we begin our new chapter at Terminal West.  –
