Gig Guide: Bragg Jam edition

July 26, 2013 

Thomas Wynn and the Believers

Saturday at at Grant’s Lounge

If the name Thomas Wynn sounds vaguely familiar to you, it’s probably because he’s 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.

Brent Cobb

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, he’s 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. It’s 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 you’re 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.

The Whiskey Gentry

Saturday at the Cox Capitol Theatre

Somewhere there is a point where old-time country, folk music and bluegrass all intersect. Standing on that point right now is Atlanta’s Whiskey Gentry. Led by singer Lauren Staley Morrow, the Whiskey Gentry has become one of Atlanta’s “must see” bands with Paste magazine including them in its “Best of What’s Next” list. It’s high energy hybrid country music that will have you dancing from start to finish. All ages. 9:45 p.m.

DJ Lethal

Saturday at Asylum

Bragg Jam has been booking some great DJs over the years and this year is no different. DJ Lethal was the DJ for Irish influenced hip-hop group House of Pain, and rap/rock group Limp Bizkit. Expect to hear a DJ set that will span many genres of music. You will hear hip-hop, rock ’n’ roll, ’80s, electronic and more. Come ready to dance and get there early to assure a great spot on the dance floor so you can see it all. The stories that come from Asylum are some of the best each year at Bragg Jam. 18 and up. 10:30 p.m.
