Congrats, and I hope that it is the best performance of your career!
Hey, another Atlantan!Congratulations! I have never seen another forum member in person that I know of,so since I live in the atl I will have to check it out.Not a large jazz scene in Atlanta,you would think it would be better considering it is a large metro area and has a lot of people from jazz cities living here and a large african american population,but I can only think of three jazz clubs,and a smattering of places that have jazz nights,so I imagine competition for gigs is fierce.It's nice to see one of the forum brethen catch a break.
My Myspace page is here. But I don't think it's all that good. We were basically just jamming on some of my tunes. We recorded live, all in the same room so there's a lot of bleed and clams and such. I don't think I played very well at all. We were just messing about, really, just goofing around. There was beer and all that, a bunch of people in the control room hanging around.Can you post a link to your myspace page?? Do you have sound clips there?
I won't be back down from school then! I'm actually an Atlanta (ok, N Georgia) native, just up in the dreary north for schooling, so I've heard alllll about the festival. My high school director went eeevery year and told us all about it! Always sounded awesome, I just never found time to go. Do try to get someone to take some footage or somethin!Thank you, Jessiah. We're playing on Saturday, May 29 at 3:00. The fesitval is held over Memorial Day weekend. It's one of the biggest in the country, they say, and it's an Atlanta tradition, our way of kicking off the summer.
