Alpharetta’s Music at Twilight featuring Surrender Hill
Sep 20 @ 8:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Separately, Salmon and Seekins are strong, sharp-voiced musicians, with songs inspired by their colorful and unusual backgrounds. Together, they’re something bigger: a soulful, countrified duo whose music nods not only to America’s rural pockets, but also to the world at large. Appropriately, the group takes its name from the real-life Surrender Hill in South Africa, where the Anglo-Boer War came to a close. After all, this a band of songwriters who’ve fought their own battles and suffered their own scars, only to surrender to — and find peace with — each other.

Guitarist Slim Gambill: Fake Jazz & Theme Songs LP Launch Show
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Jason “Slim” Gambill, famed Guitarist for Country Supergroup Lady Antebellum, releases his very first solo project at The Velvet Note. This killer jazz recording entitled, Fake Jazz and Theme Songs will both captivate and surprise you, as will the accomplished members of his new jazz band.
Slim is a multi-genre guitarist, producer, composer, arranger and songwriter. He is best known as the lead guitarist for the multi-platinum Capitol Nashville recording artist Lady Antebellum, who has sold more than 16 million albums worldwide, racked up 7 GRAMMYs and countless ACM, CMA and People’s Choice Awards, and had 9 #1 songs.
Slim Gambill’s debut contemporary instrumental album, “Fake Jazz & Theme Songs,” is a bold departure from his typical wheelhouse, and yet marks a long-overdue return to his roots as a jazz and blues musician. Equally praised for its complex-yet-easily accessible arrangements, hooky melodies, and earth-shattering horn sections combined with tasteful, subtle guitar tones, “Fake Jazz & Theme Songs” is making waves not only in the jazz world, but in the Nashville music community that Slim calls home.
Showtimes: 7:30pm and 9:30pm Admission: $34.

For over 20 years, Swami Gone Bananas has proven to be the city’s finest and most watched ‘cover’ band. Even though they do many of their own songs, Swami still likes to call them a cover group. Swami (founder Mike Schulman) formed this band after friend and Grateful Dead founder Jerry Garcia died in 1995. Swami was (in 1995) and still is a graphic designer for the Dead with over 100 T-Shirt and stage pass designs. Swami always said that the Grateful Dead were the best cover group of all time. When Jerry died Swami formed Swami Gone Bananas to ‘cover’ the Atlanta area. The Swami Band played the “Circus Tent’ at Buckhead’s ‘Mike & Angelos’ for almost 10 years becoming an institution in Atlanta’s entertainment district. When nightclubs were replaced with city expansion, Swami Gone Bananas moved to Atlanta’s famous Northside Tavern. With years of performances in the Tavern under their belt, Swami Gone Bananas continues to be Atlanta’s “Good Times Icons’. –
