BANDS


      "Some sing music for the dollar. I sing music for the brother."
                                                   JOSEPH HILL

CULTURE
w Kenyatta Hill (from Jamaica)

Kenyatta Hill’s career began the day his father’s ended. Joseph Hill, singer and songwriter for the legendary Jamaican vocal trio Culture, collapsed and died while on a 2006 tour of Europe. To the amazement of promoters, fans and critics alike, Kenyatta stepped onstage and delivered electrifying performances time and again - nineteen shows in all - until the tour was complete. This was unheard of in any genre of music at any time. Kenyatta gave of himself so totally – as his father had for so many years – that the two seemed to become one.

Indeed, Culture featuring Kenyatta Hill continues to share the wisdom of Joseph’s conscious reggae overlaid with Kenyatta’s own lively and youthful musical vision.  Influenced by elements of dancehall, grounded in the roots tradition and motivated to carry on his father’s work, Kenyatta and his band comes to Atlanta to set a fire to the stage.  All the way from Jamaica to proclaim, for all the world to see, that GANJA is for the "healing of the nations" and in the name of his father ask for justice and compassion.  Legalize it!

Playing the worldwide hit 'INTERNATIONAL HERB' and many more classic reggae hits!  Yea mon!

GHOST RIDERS CAR CLUB

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past five years, the Ghost Riders Car Club proudly proclaims it serves up “Authentic Country Music from the Redneck Underground,” and Spike Fullerton (guitar) enjoys playing rockabilly anytime he can.  Rocking a country beat is a mainstay for all of his band mates.

This group delivers far more than music, modeling itself after the GRAND OLE OPRY radio shows of the 1950s, featuring commercials and fan letters and hosted by Marco Sunset with vocals.  Other current members include the Mighty Joe Hamm on drums;  James St. James on bass guitar; Ted Weldon vocals and washboard, Art Holliday, guitar and vocals; and Rick Price playing the hell out of a mandolin.  Songs from Ray Price, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, and a bevy of pure originals, is sure to get you shuffling and dancing. 

“To work with professional musicians who know what they are doing and really work on their craft is a real pleasure for me,” Fullerton says. “I’m just happy to be along for the ride.”  Veterans of many shows at the Clermont, the Star Bar, and local festivals, you will relish GRCC in the flesh as they work their magic.

NAKED TRUTH
This Atlanta, Georgia based quartet originated in the local hardcore scene in 1988. Although the individual band members arrived from far: vocalist Doug Watts came from Detroi;, bassist Jeff from Harlem, New York; and drummer Bernard Dawson from Los Angeles; Jimmie Westley was the only Georgia native, calling from Savannah.
Life was initially tough for a black metal band in Georgia, but the dreadlocked group's singer (D.WATTS) caught the interest of former Clash manager Bernie Rhodes, and he helped the band sign to Sony. They soon relocated to London, after meeting bassist  London-born Kwame Boaten. The band was ready for the road . GREEN WITH RAGE introduced Naked Truth's raw, aggressive sound, which was given an individual slant by jazz and funk influences. Next they offered up READ BETWEEN THE LINES EP.

The band were
fortunate to pick up a UK tour with Scat Opera and Little Angels, after a Motorhead support slot was lost due to a tour cancellation by lead singer (Lemmy),  The band built up a cult following, helped by a series of London residencies, before their next release FIGHT appeared. The release showing the band's ability to mix styles as diverse as jazz and death metal seamlessly and convincingly, while Watts supplied varied vocals, from rap to all-out hardcore rage, and intelligent lyrics.
Back to Atlanta after a ten year hiatus, this hardcore heavy metal band has been well known around the world .  This music is guaranteed to wake up the neighborhood.  Songs sure to 'Light the Fire' and put revolution in the air.  Songs rule like 'BLACK' & 'FIGHT'.  If you have never heard of Naked Truth, make sure you do not miss this one!
