Smokey's Farmland Band blends musical influences ranging from bluegrass to gypsy jazz to Cajun, creating a progressive sound they like to call "Goodtime Eclectic Bluegrass". While they enjoy venturing outside the realm of the traditional, they still respect the roots of bluegrass, and retain the energy and twang of mountain music. A typical set features original tunes, good ol' pickin numbers, and some unexpected covers too. It all comes together in an exciting genre-bending style that keeps listeners on their toes, and on the dance floor!
The Swamp Funk Quartet is an Atlanta-based group of experienced musicians, specializing in syncopated music. SFQ’s material is drawn from a variety of sources and styles, but the common element is “funkiness”. Indeed, SFQ inhabits the space where funk, soul, blues, and reggae overlap. SFQ’s sound has been compared to a “gumbo” of New Orleans greats The Meters, the funk-jazz stylings of John Scofield, and the guitar antics of Jeff Beck.
The Chattahoochee Chain Gang has quickly become one of the hottest new Americana-Bluegrass bands in the South. Their style incorporates traditional blue grass instrumentation, and infuses it with blues, Americana, folk, and country. CCG music features melodic mandolin run and soulful blues licks that are mixed with neo-traditional banjo, slap bass, and a variety of Americana style percussion. Chattahoochee Chain Gang has a remarkable way of making traditional bluegrass more appealing to the modern world.
