Heritage Sandy Springs is shaking things up and presenting a new open-air happy hour series that invites a young and diverse audience to enjoy regional live music in a beautiful outdoor setting. Sparked by the success of its previous happy hour music series, Wind Down Wednesdays, and by growing audience request to present more regional acts, Heritage Sandy Springs is pleased to unveil its newest endeavor, Rhythm & Brews.
The new series, Rhythm & Brews, embraces regional roots, presenting four acts in a variety of musical genres. Each month features an unforgettable performance of both up-and-coming and established artists whose origins are deeply rooted in the region.
2013 Rhythm & Brews
Thursday, May 30 – Seven Handle Circus
Formed in 2010, “7HC” is already catching the attention of fans and notable musicians, including sharing the stage of the Fox Theatre with Grammy Award winner Mumford and Sons. Known to get crowds dancing and in a party mood, the brilliant little string band from Atlanta puts a modern twist on traditional bluegrass, mixing rock, country and even a little rap. The “grass n’ roll” band is touring in support of their new EP “Whiskey Stills and Sleeping Pills”.
Thursday, June 27 – von Grey
With their soulful four-part harmonies, poetic lyrics and indelible melodies, it’s easy to see why von Grey has been called “nothing short of stunning.” The classically trained indie-folk band consists of four sisters, ages 12 – 18. The Atlanta-based group made their network television debut in February on “The Late Show with David Letterman” followed by an appearance on “Rock Center with Brian Williams” and “Conan O’Brien” and have performed upwards of 200 shows in the past two years, from recurring residency tours at intimate venues throughout the southeastern U.S. to supporting gigs with such artists as Sarah McLachlan.
Thursday, July 25 – The Deadfields
Atlanta-based Americana/Folk-Rock outfit, The Deadfields, was formed for the simple, purpose: to have fun, write, and perform meaningful music. Their meaningful music has been well received, with the independently released ”Dance in The Sun” and the single “Carolina Backroads” climbing to #99 on the AMA (American Music Association) charts, reaching #8 on the FAR (Freeform Americana Roots) charts, and achieved #61 status on the Roots 66 (The Alternate Roots) charts. Reviews for the debut poured in as well. Some say the best release they heard all year. Accessible, yet fresh and distinct, The Deadfields’ energy and sound stir up a feeling similar to that of the Randy Rogers Band, the Old 97’s, or the Avett Brothers. And their passion to create meaningful music bleeds through every performance, like a band on a mission.
Thursday, August 29 – Old You
Welding a clever mix of jazz, blues and acid rock to the boisterous soul-bearing of female vocalist Young-Mi Feldsott, Old You constructs a sturdy yet sleek vehicle of sultry and emotive blues and rock. When put in motion, it sounds like a time warp from the ’60s to the distant future and back within one song.
The open-air concerts are held May through August on the last Thursday of each month at The Sandy Springs Society Entertainment Lawn at Heritage Green, 6110 Bluestone Road, Sandy Springs. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with the concerts 6:30 – 800 p.m. Admission is $5 for ages 21 and up, $2 for ages 13-20, free for ages 12 and under.
