The Shadowboxers

I’ve been to a lot of concerts and some of my favorite bands and artists are ones I first heard as opening acts. I usually listen to openers I’ve never heard before the show, but didn’t before the Dave Barnes show at The Ryman this past weekend. So when I say I was completely blown away by The Shadowboxers it’s a little bit of an understatement. It didn’t hurt that we were front row, either (huge thanks to my friend for that one). And if there ever were a time to use the word swoon, this would be it, and is exactly what we did on Saturday. These guys are fun, talented, and easy on the eyes. They’ve got moves. From Atlanta, now in Nashville – my two favorite places.

Check them out and enjoy! Definitely go see them live if you have the chance. I’ll be jamming out to them, Lucie Silvas and Dave Barnes all day today reliving that amazing show at my favorite venue.

Air Traffic Controller

No, I’m not making a career change. I found a new band! Air Traffic Controller is upbeat, fun and actually remind me a little of Fun (the band) and/or Walk Off the Earth. I imagine their show is also entertaining. Ok, yes, I really wanted to say ‘fun’ again. They use of a variety of instruments including strings (violin, upright bass, etc.) and mandolin in some songs, which I always love.

Check them out! I’m going to keep an eye out for them to come through Atlanta!

Nathan Angelo

I was really excited to come across Nathan Angelo on Spotify. He’s in the same vein as Marc Broussard who is easily my favorite artist. A little soul, great vocal range, and seems to be an entertainer (though I have not yet seen him live). And his last album was recorded live here in Atlanta at Smith’s Olde Bar. It’s a small intimate venue and I’m sad I missed that performance. This video is from that performance, so enjoy and be sure catch him the next time he plays in your town!
