Thomas Wynn and the Believers
Saturday at at Grants Lounge
If the name Thomas Wynn sounds vaguely familiar to you, its probably because hes the son of Tom Wynn, who was the drummer for Capricorn Records band Cowboy. Wynn teams up with his sister, Olivia, to lead a band that can be reminiscent of Creedence Clearwater Revival and Tom Petty and still be something incredibly new. If you like hard driving rock n roll, this is a must-see band at Bragg Jam. 18 and up. 7 p.m.
Saturday at the Crazy Bull
Brent Cobb is a small town Georgia boy whose talent for song writing was so big that everyone around him made him move to Nashville. Once he got there, he found himself writing for some of the biggest names in country, such as Kellie Pickler, Luke Bryan and the Eli Young Band. Now, hes performing his own music and opening for acts such as Blake Shelton. Life is good for this Ellaville boy. What could be better than writing and singing country music? 18 and up. 10 p.m.
Friends of Brax featuring Hank Vegas
Saturday at the Rookery
This is the event that started it all. The very first Bragg Jam was just the friends of Brax Bragg getting together to remember a great local songwriter by singing songs and playing music. Its grown into the music festival that we know today. The Friends of Brax session is always a little laid back, which can be much needed when youre moving from place to place and dancing. Rookery owner Chad Evans revives his band Hank Vegas for the tribute to his friend. 18 and up. 10:30 p.m.
