Alpharetta Music City- Music Match featuring THUNDERGYPSY
Feb 25 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

THUNDERGYPSY was conceived during a chance encounter in 2013. One year later, the stars aligned and these 4 musicians with similar tastes in music and attitude towards performance formed ThunderGypsy. And they have been captivating audiences ever since! ThunderGypsy plays Soul Stirrin’, Blues Rockin’ music – an eclectic mix that spans the decades. The spirit of the Gypsies is evident in their music as they take you on a musical road trip from Atlanta’s Southern Soul to the rockin’ Blues in Macon, Ga., from the classic sound of the Memphis Blues along the streets of New Orleans’ French Quarter and even up to Chicago and St. Louis for their rocking electric Blues. By taking many familiar songs and intensifying the arrangements, ThunderGypsy has been mesmerizing Atlanta audiences since its inception.

Joe Farnsworth Presents…Pianist Eric Reed
Feb 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

When you think of hard-driving swing, daring expression, sophistication and elegance in artistry, formidable technique and a thunderous sound, there are only a small handful of pianists you think of and one of them is most assuredly ERIC SCOTT REED.
Eric was born in the musically rich city of Philadelphia, PA. He grew up playing in his father’s storefront Baptist church: “My father was a minister who sang with a Gospel group called the Bay State Singers; he was my earliest musical influence. I was also hit heavily by everything I heard on the radio – James Cleveland, Edwin & Walter Hawkins, Andraé Crouch, Donny Hathaway, Earth, Wind & Fire.” Soon after, young Reed was bitten by the Jazz bug after hearing recordings by Art Blakey, Ramsey Lewis and Dave Brubeck.
Joe Farnsworth is the host of The Velvet Note’s series of “must see now” jazz artists that bears his name. One of the most highly regarded jazz drummers on the scene today, Joe is known for his blazing speed, precision, musical, and melodic playing.
