Mark your calendars for Wednesday, December 20, 2017 for the 7th Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny at Terminal West! The night is dedicated to the memory of good friend Col. Bruce Hampton, and we will pay tribute to the legacy and impact of Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks, too. I still find it remarkable that we lost these three musical giants in the span of just a few months. Also, for the fifth consecutive year, Atlanta Habitat for Humanity & ReStore will receive proceeds from the concert and associated silent auction. I am grateful for that continued relationship, and it’s such an essential part of our community.
Y’all this year’s edition is THE REAL DEAL. Let’s spread holiday cheers, support a great cause, and boogie til you drop! The lineup is as follows:
Joey “Papa J” Sommerville (trumpet)
Brian Lopes (saxophone)
Daniel Wytanis (trombone)
Matthew Williams (Pickled Holler)
Bill Fleming (pedal steel)
Kevin Thomas (keyboards)
Richie Jones (drums & percussion)
Gaurav Malhotra (drums & percussion)
Bobby Miller (mandolin)
Zebulon Bowles (Hot Buttered Rum)
Jared Womack (The Grass Is Dead &Rockygrass dobro competition winner)
Each set of music will be unique to that night only, so plan on being there for every note! The schedule is as follows:
6:00 PM ~ Doors Open, Silent Auction open until 11:15 PM
6:45 PM – 7:45 PM ~ Ralph Roddenbery & Friends
8:15 PM – 9:15 PM ~ Jim Lauderdale
9:45 PM – 10:45 PM ~ ZambiGrass Jam, featuring Jeff Mosier, Larry Keel, Nick DiSebastian, Bobby Miller, Jared Womack
11:15 PM – 12:30 AM ~ Zambi Jam Finale, featuring Jeff Mosier, Count M’Butu, Johnny Knapp, The Madrid Express & special guests!
The silent auction will feature many wonderful items up for bid from festival experiences to dining opportunities to incredible framed photography, artwork, jewelry, crafts, and sports memorabilia.
Needless to say, this year’s edition will be an extra special one as we feel Bruce’s incredible energy permeate the venue from stage to audience and all points in between!
