Saturday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
I dont think Ive ever heard of a band that calls Auburn, Ala., its home base. Im sure they are out there. At least I hope so. However, the Bama Gamblers are the first one Ive run across. Their Southern roots shine through in their music with a style that is heavily influenced by big city blues and Southern soul. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
Chuck Leavell and Friends
Saturday at Cox Capitol Theatre
Chuck Leavell has been lifted to just about the highest status you can achieve as a Middle Georgia artist. We all love him. He played with the Allman Brothers Band, created his own band, Sea Level, on Capricorn Records, went on to play keyboards with the Rolling Stones, and after all of that success he still lives right here in Middle Georgia. Plain and simple, we love Leavell around these parts, so this show is going be a very special event. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 and $40.
T/SMS, Gurgle Twins and Harry Cloud Free
Monday at Fresh Produce Records
Hearing music in a record store is an experience all to itself that Macon hasnt been able to enjoy in a very long time. Its small shows like these that introduce music lovers to new sounds that wouldnt get a chance at some of the better known places to hear music here in town. Tom Smith of T/SMS made his mark in the alternative sound To Live and Shave in LA. He will be joined by local bands Gurgle Twins and Harry Cloud Free. All ages. 9 p.m. Free.
