The Lumière Lounge features specialty cocktails made with local Hometown Honey in addition to a full bar. The Strand was proud to introduce this popular silent film inspired cocktail lounge in November of 2014.

The Queen’s Cartoonists
Jul 18 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The Queen’s Cartoonists play music from classic cartoons and contemporary animation. The performances are synchronized to video projections of the original films, and the band leads the audience through a world of virtuosic musicianship, multi-instrumental mayhem, and comedy.
Behind the project is a single question is it possible to create jazz and classical music in the 21st century that appeals to everyone? Even people who normally wouldn’t go to concerts? The Queen’s Cartoonists present a concert for everybody – regardless of age, gender, or familiarity with the concert hall.
Tying this diverse concert together are comedic anecdotes involving the cartoons and their composers. The band is on a musical mission of equal parts performance, preservation, and education. Expect the unexpected from repertoire that includes the Golden Age of animation, cult cartoon classics, modern animation, and elements of a musical circus!
Since their inception in 2015, The Queen’s Cartoonists have brought their unique sound to performing arts centers in over 20 states and have opened for the New York Philharmonic. The 6 members, all currently living in Queens, New York, are world-class professional musicians. The band has been featured in numerous major publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, Mashable, and on NPR.
This performance is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and Georgia Council for the Arts.

Riley Biederer
Jul 18 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Riley is a 22 year old singer/songwriter from the Northern suburbs of Atlanta. Her distinctive sound can best be described pop with an edgy soulful twist.
Riley has enjoyed singing since she was a young girl, and at 13 she picked up her first guitar and began writing songs. By age 14, her open mic performances drew strong local acclaim and quickly transitioned to paid three set performances in venues all over North Georgia. At Age 15, Grammy winning producer Matt Still (Outkast, Elton John, BB King, Joss Stone, Lady Gaga, Patti LaBelle, Jewel) discovered her singing and songwriting talent on YouTube and took her to Elton John who immediately signed her to his international music management company Rocket Music (Elton John, Ed Sheeran,). Governor Nathan Deal presented her with the prestigious Georgia Music Hall of Fame’s Bill Lowery Horizons Award when she was 16.
Rocket music was instrumental in providing Riley with opportunities to develop of her songwriting and vocal skills. Her work with dozens of established writers and producers in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, Atlanta, Canada and France led to her signing a publishing agreement on her 18th birthday with the world’s largest publishing company, Sony/ATV. Riley and Rocket Music parted ways in May of 2015 when Rocket Music closed their North American operations.
Riley continued to perform solo or with her band in Atlanta, Nashville, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and France, logging over 350 paid performances before the age of 20. Using youtube covers, many of which were self-produced live recordings, Riley organically built a huge social media following approaching 400 thousand fans, including over 262,000 youtube subscribers and 75 thousand Facebook fans. After leaving Rocket Music and striking out on her own, Riley decide to audition for Season 9 of the hit television show The Voice. As a member of Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani teams, Riley used powerful performances to become the first one chair turn, twice stolen artist to ever make the Voice Live Playoffs.
Upon conclusion of the Voice Season 9, Riley and her band were chosen by the international booking agency APA to be the opening support act for Nick Carter’s North American tour which will kick off in Sacramento CA on Feb 24 and cover 24 cities in 32 nights. She released her debut EP on Mar 1st.
Riley performed in the Ryan Seacrest produced YouTube competition series “Best.Cover.Ever” and won the episode earning her the chance to duet with Katy Perry in 2018.
She now resides in Los Angeles where she continues to pursue a career as a Singer/Songwriter.

TasteBud Live!
Jul 18 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Originally started by lead guitarist Ryan Given, Tastebud has over thirty combined years experience in the music industry and has been gaining some serious traction in the greater Atlanta area. With all members having very similar but distinct backgrounds they all bring them heavy focus on styles like jazz, funk, southern rock, and psychedelic jams. Tastebud has been described as, ” A group that really brings the magic with them, to every venue they play.”
When TasteBud was started five years ago, the band played in a few small venues right outside of the D.C. area and later relocated to Atlanta. After the band took a couple years off to develop and refine their sound, TasteBud emerged as a promising talent in the Atlanta Music Scene. TasteBud has always been a band that was built on a foundation of friendship and family. A positive message that is associated with their music is the core value that is brought with them at every show they play.
After five years, Tastebud has a sound that is more refined than ever and we are constantly looking for ways to improve our sound. TasteBud’s mission is to create a jam-style listening experience like never before!
