    Disco Tendencies

    Funk

    Disco Tendencies are a band to watch in the Atlanta music scene. Drawing from elements of rock, funk and jam, they form an accessible sound that’s just as captivating live as it is on their album. Disco Tendencies’ songs work within a loosely defined, yet immediately recognizable framework, where songs are subject to a complete tonal shift at the drop of a hat. Listeners have likened the band’s sound to a range of acts such as The Black Crowes, Kings of Leon and Sublime.

    Comparisons to these bands may be primarily born out of the vocal style of front man, Alex Rogers, whose bouncy and talented delivery helps the rock band stand out from others within its circle. Electric guitar duties are shared between Matt Payne’s spot-on funky, bluesy riffs and Jeff Axelrod’s precise, yet unpredictable shredding capabilities. The rhythm backbone consists of drummer, Scott Dickson, and bassist, Gil Templeton, who have over a decade of experience together—working in lockstep to lay down groovy textures and frantic crescendos alike. 

    Disco Tendencies generally play in bars and music venues in the Atlanta area. They’re known to bring a crowd with them, drawing everyone from young party goers to local music fans with tie-dyes and grey ponytails.

  • The Orange Constant

    The Orange Constant

    Rock

    The Orange Constant formed in 2012 in Statesboro, Ga. and quickly made a name for itself across the American southeast. Now residing in Athens, Ga., the group continues to grow a loyal fan-base that craves its eclectic and vintage rock sound. TOC's debut album, Time to Go (June 2015), was recorded with Grammy nominated producer John Keane (REM, Widespread Panic) and garnered national praise from Relix Magazine which cited the work as a "confident and polished debut album...laden with connective riffs and melodious charm." The band shares bills with nationally and internationally touring acts including Perpetual Groove, TAUK, The Mantras, and Atlas Road Crew and won the 2016 Flagpole Athens Music Award for best "Jam/ Funk" band. Its second LP, Point of Reference (March 2017), was produced by Drew Vandenberg (of Montreal, Kishi Bashi, Futurebirds) and demonstrates an urge to break genre restrictions and capture a sound of its own. The Orange Constant draws influence from many different styles, and fans are often drawn to their ability to meld progressive composition and improvisation with a pop-like sensibility. The band consists of Andrew Brantley (guitar/vocal), Nickalous Benson (guitar, vocals), Tyler Walker (bass, vocals), Chris Freiberg (keyboards), Sam Groveman (Drums).

  • LaGoons

    LaGoons

    Jam Bands

    Conjured in the summer suns of Tuscaloosa, Alabama with roots now in Atlanta, LaGoons breathe a unique breeze of air into the world of jam music. Step into a show and listeners will immediately hear their distinctively goony sound. Deriving influences from Blues/Funk/Jazz and the Unknown, LaGoons are committed to the live concert experience. With each show their goal is to reach the highest level of energy possible, performing rehearsed compositions that leave plenty of room for improvisation and the audience wanting more.
