The Grapes
The Grapes
Atlanta-born and raised, The Grapes are one of the pioneer jam bands from the 80s and 90s. They enjoyed a rich touring schedule and are still fortunate to be able to come back to their home at the Variety every few years to rock the house. Don't miss a rare opportunity to see The Grapes live!
Deep Blue Sun
Deep Blue Sun
Deep Blue Sun churns out a hypnotic blend of classic funk, melodic rock, southern-fried soul and west coast psychedelia. Versatile songwriting, blazing lead guitar, driving keyboards, harmonies & a hot rhythm section meld together into a distinctive, danceable sound that'll take you for a musical ride.

Their most recent album "Live at Tree Sound" was awarded Best Live Album of the Year by Homegrown Music Network, and the band is a mainstay at the best clubs and festivals throughout the southeast.

DBS was formed by Atlanta-area songwriters John Marsh (keys) and Katie Moore (guitar). Deeply rooted in the Georgia music scene, both were part of early incarnations of the Grapes before moving on to form Apple Peru. Today, the band is at its peak, featuring the soaring leads of virtuoso guitarist Matt Lynn and the funky R&B vocals of bassist Ben Hernandez. DBS takes swampy funk and southern soul, and infuses it with jazz, tight changes, melody, dynamics and a healthy dose of improv -- without ever losing the hook. Get ready for some seriously contagious grooves...
