Opening our October 2 show!!!

Will McCranie

Augusta, GA's prodigal son, Will McCranie, has returned after a nearly 8 year stint of gigging, touring, writing & recording with New York City as his home base. During his time in The Big Apple, McCranie averaged well over 100 live performances a year (playing shows with the likes of Goo Goo Dolls, Colbie Caillat, Kevn Kinney, Angie Aparo & Michael Tolcher along the way), released 3 EP's and a full length LP under his own name, played on nearly a dozen releases with other artists, recorded/released a song a week for over a year on his 52/52 PROJECT & signed a sync/licensing deal with Fieldhouse Music/BMG.

McCranie followed up his 2014 release, I Know I Didn't Know Anything, with a new EP After Midnight Friends, Volume 1 on Broken Compass Records in the Fall of 2016. Veteran super-producer Jeff Tomei returned to the helm, along with Will's longtime friend & mentor Patrick Blanchard for the After Midnight Friends sessions. Grammy nominated Glenn Schick mastered the collection from the road in South Korea. The EP was recorded in just one weekend at C**k of the Walk Studios in Kennesaw, GA and the result is McCranie's most honest and live sounding collection to date. He reconnected with IKIDKA producer, Matty Amendola in Brooklyn, NY in October of 2017 and a new single, Wait To Dream, was released 2 short weeks later.

Will McCranie's tunes are a carefully balanced mix of alternative/pop-rock influences blended with his southern roots. You feel like after listening to the his music that you have opened a beautiful music box filled with love, life, happiness, sadness, honesty and truth. It’s a mix of all these feelings and experiences that really make McCranie a songwriter you can connect with and who is only going to bring you alongside him on this musical journey.

In addition to his solo efforts, McCranie can be found fronting the improvisational rock band, Bodega Cat, leaning on his love of jambands like Umphrey’s McGee and Phish or with the local supergroup, Sweet Burrito - “Augusta, GA’s undisputed kings of dad rock”.

Chris Hardy

Edgefield, SC songwriter Chris Hardy might just be the CSRA's most prolific songwriter. He's penned over 1000 songs for himself and others since he began writing songs in 1980. He's a veteran of not only the 434th Army Band at Ft. Gordon, GA, but also the local music scene since he arrived here in 1983. Since then, Chris has performed on stages large, small (and on national television) with various bands, duos and as a solo performer. Currently he's about to release his 13th solo album, which contains bits of wisdom he's found to point listeners the way to their own personal happiness, all within the songs. In his own words, "It's kind of my responsibility to try and pass on these useful tips, but not in a boring fashion!"

Deltaphonic // Ghosts

We hate to change our tune so fast, (Man, last weekend was a great show…) but September 4 is going to come up on us soon and we’ve got to get the word out about Deltaphonic! They will be bringing blues/funk and roots rock to Aiken - all the way from New Orleans.

If you are a new friend, old friend, sometimes friend, or diehard friend, we could sure use the help spreading the word about the next show. TIA

Matt is this basically in your backyard? Might have to make the trip.
Thanks for using color-fast wrist bands! I washed my shirt without realizing that the wrist pink band was in the pocket, and was surprised when I saw it and found out my shirt wasn't ruined. See y'all next time!
