With names like Devon Allman and Cyril Neville attached to the band, Royal Southern Brotherhood is a must-see for many Maconites. This Southern rock band fused with New Orleans funk and soul touches Capricorn Records fans as well as blues and R&B fans.

Atomic Boogie

FRIDAY AT THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE AND TAPROOM

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a good rock-a-billy act come through Macon. Atomic Boogie has been described a fusing the rocking country of Sun Records with the blues of Chess Records. If you understand what that means, then you already know you want to be there for this show. If not, you will hear sounds that will remind you of everyone from Jerry Lee Lewis to Muddy Waters and everything in between. 18 and older. 10 p.m. $5.

Bobby Compton

SATURDAY AT THE CRAZY BULL

Free Lance Ruckus

SATURDAY AT THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE AND TAPROOM

I am always blown away by how talented the members of Free Lance Ruckus are.

They will be joined by the new, up and coming Rapanui. 18 and older. 10 p.m. $5.
