The Cox Capitol Theatre show featuring the Dirty Guv’nahs and Molly Stevens coming Thursday ties together several Macon connections.
“The Dirty Guv’nahs are a favorite around Macon; they have played here pretty regularly and always draw a really engaged and a bit younger crowd,” said Roger Riddle, marketing manager for the Moonhanger Group, which manages the theater. “Their music is soulful, kind of between Southern rock and indie rock.”
Stevens grew up in Macon and is doing solo work after spending a few years in the country music duo Stevens Layne in Nashville.
“It’s like a homecoming show for her, and it’s always exciting to have local artists play at this time of year,” said Riddle.
The show is a Cherry Blossom Festival event that is non-smoking and open to all ages.
“When you think of Macon, you can’t help but think of the Cherry Blossom Festival, and to be able to pair up a local act with a regional favorite as part of the festival is right up our alley and what we like to do,” he said.
