A Concert Like No Other in Southwest Georgia!!

By: Chastity Cox

 The natives are stirring... something wild is coming to Southwest Georgia! "Native Noise", a concert like no other, will be held on August 9th at Hooters in Albany, Georgia. The best news of all, it's free!!

That's right folks, great rock/alternative music starting at 2PM going on until 11PM--- free.

Hear incredible live music from talented musicians like Green Hollow, Bailey Drive, Confliction , Forgotten Days , Holly Drive , Swel-J , and Monroe Brown .

Confliction beat three other local and regional finalists to win the custom Budweiser Paul Reed Smith Guitar! At the House of Blues in N. Myrtle Beach, SC…

Forgotten Days  is a self contained Modern Rock, Alternative band based in South Georgia, featuring Billy Baillargeon, Guitar/Vocals, and Phillip Humphries Vocals/Guitar, Benji Goldman, Lead Guitar/Vocals, Dee Taylor, Bass, and Mike Cochran, Drums.

Holly Drive is a soulful, five-piece heavy rock band from Stowe, Pennsylvania. Holly Drive was started when singer Jeff Reinhart  and bassist Kareem Kobeissi left "H-Level" to start a new band with childhood best friend and neighbor guitarist Matt Washington. The three then set out to find a drummer, and found their man in Garry Schmoltze. A second guitarist, Rich Jacobs, has also joined the band.

SWEL-J is a South Georgia acoustic rock band featuring Dan Crowder and Scott Dixon's classical guitar and modern rock writing styles. Mark Dixon's creative bass lines and Tony Najjar's powerful and solid drumming style completes the exceptional band experience.

Monroe Brown is a self-contained, independently produced and distributed band from Albany, Georgia. The members are-- Jason - lead guitar/vocals, Jeremy – drums, and Tater – bass.  Jason came from an Albany band called DBF. Jeremy and Tater played in Tracyflips and other various local Albany bands. As soon as Monroe Brown formed we hit the studio and recorded what would later become "A Sudden Realization". Monroe Brown attemped to play shows around the Albany area, unsure of how the fans would react, because of their new style. Surprisingly, we got a very good response from local music fans. It would be the fuel that we band need to take it to the next level.

So--- Stop complaining that there is nothing to do in Southwest Georgia! Come out to Hooters in Albany, Georgia on Saturday August 9th for "Native Noise", presented by Real Rock 97.3.

There will be plenty of beverages to keep you cool from Budweiser and don't forget the great food from Hooters.

We'll be there--- will you?
