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!

Wednesday, December 20 at Terminal West

Showtime: 6:45 PM, Doors open 6 PM, Silent Auction 6-11:15 PM

Advance tickets $25 ADV/$35 Day of Show

The countdown is ON, with just eight days remaining to pure musical ecstasy supporting a wonderful cause and dedicated to a musician so revered by so many. Y’all this edition has been a seven month process on several levels of comprehension, and those who are fortunate to attend will certainly feel that energy. Songs are being exchanged amongst the musicians, potential set lists are forming, and yes, there will be some surprises!

Please welcome the talented saxophone player Bryan Lopes and trumpet extraordinaire Joey “Papa J” Sommerville to the lineup. I first saw Bryan perform over 20 years ago with Jeff Sipe, Count M’Butu and Ricky Keller at Smith’s Olde Bar, performing in an avant-garde sort of way.  Both Papa J and Madrid Express trombonist Daniel Wytanis participated in the Hampton70 Concert at the Fox Theatre in May, and rest assured this trio of horn players will tear it up with Jim Lauderdale and within the Zambi Jam Finale in addition to wherever else it makes sense! Needless to say we’re looking forward to what promises to be an incredibly special night of music!

The schedule is as follows:

6:00 PM ~ Doors Open, Silent Auction open until 11:15 PM

6:45 PM – 7:45 PM ~ Ralph Roddenbery & Friends

8:15 PM – 9:15 PM ~ Jim Lauderdale

9:45 PM – 10:45 PM ~ ZambiGrass Jam, featuring Jeff Mosier, Larry Keel, Nick DiSebastian, Bobby Miller, Jared Womack (Live Auction begins)

11:15 PM – 12:30 AM ~ Zambi Jam Finale, featuring Jeff Mosier, Count M’Butu, Johnny Knapp, The Madrid Express, Zambi Horns & special guests! 

I can’t implore upon you enough what it means to have your support of the Holiday Hootenanny, Atlanta Habitat, and a love for great music. Get a sitter, drop what you’re doing, and just come on! You will be thankful that you made that decision. Below is Jim Lauderdale from last year’s edition performing Headed For The Hills – enjoy!
