March 17 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmCost: Free
Historic Stubbs Park and Super Saturday is gonna get to ShamROCKN’ with Sunbelt Revolution, during a live performance Saturday, March 17th from 6 PM-9 PM!
Located in a small town in Middle Georgia is a little band with a big sound called: Sunbelt Revolution
They write and play music with a sense of truth, desperation and tales of good love gone bad on their third album – Sad State of Affairs
Formed in 2008 – Sunbelt Revolution has slowly built a collection of past memories, experiences and revelations through music telling their tales one song at a time. This band has been together for 9 years going into 2017 and has over 60+ original songs and still writing, recording and publishing new material with even more passion and drive than they had in the beginning and with this much music comes an even greater anticipation to get it refined and produced so the whole world can see how their past actions, events and pathways traveled have brought them together for this exact reason. Their music seems to come together easily as if they already knew the songs but just needed to run through them a time or two. They are considered to be southern-alternative rock with some retro-classic and folk ‘story-telling’ blues undertones bleeding-through at times.
Sunbelt Revolution is a ‘DIY’ band from writing their own songs, booking gigs, promoting shows, and hosting many of the bands music pages plus recording/mixing/producing their own albums right in the backwoods of Harrison, Georgia at the bands own club/studio called: the VIP Lounge.
Sunbelt Revolution doesn’t conform to one certain genre nor do they follow any rules, they just write and play music that feels natural, has meaning and whatever comes out it will most likely be the band’s next song to add to their always growing set list.
Singer/songwriter – Chris Lewis puts it all out on the table when writing songs. He writes about the things he has witnessed and experienced from friends and strangers as well as some other things in general that has made an impression or difference in the way he sees the world around him. His lyrical content is somewhat traditional but still relevant to present day and most people can relate to what the songs are about.
Guitarist – Jimmy ‘Bo’ Norwood brings a multitude of sounds & styles to Sunbelt Revolution’s catalog of original songs with heavy influences from 60’s guitar legends: Jimi Hendrix & Jimmy Page to the 70’s with artists like: Neil Young to later artists such as: Kurt Cobain & Dave Grohl. This combination of legends has allowed Bo to ‘open-up’ and create a tone and style that is unique and not easily mimicked by many guitarist that have tried to find a ‘signature sound’ to make them just as distinct.
Bassist – Erik Powell came into the band in the summer of 2015 bringing in a musical degree as a guitarist and a willingness & drive to want to play anything they throw at him…and he has the ability to do it! With Erik on-board as their bassist, the band is looking to open up even more options with the sound and direction of the original songs and add more cover tunes as well to become a ‘well-rounded’ performing band at the LIVE shows and during the writing/composing of new music for the upcoming album
And to round out Sunbelt Revolution’s line-up is
Drummer – Vince Tanner – He brings a little more to the group than just being the timekeeper as he was the lead singer for several local rock cover-bands years ago and adds backing vocals on some of the tracks heard on the albums and at the LIVE shows too. Vince tries to be a solid ‘backbone’ drummer only to compliment each song with some different accents and grooves to give every song a unique signature but not ‘overplay’ the rhythm section. He admits he sometimes pushes the envelope on the dynamics and speed of the music at a LIVE show to help add ‘drive’ to their performance and everyone in the band feeds off of it and simply transmits that energy right through their music and on-stage performance to give the crowd what they want!.
“One of the biggest feelings you can have in a band is to see the crowd getting into the music as much as you are while playing and to see them singing along with you really lets you know, your doing something right.” ~ SBR
