Cody Matlock

Cody Matlock has already been paying his dues on the Atlanta blues scene for nearly a decade. A chance encounter with Jonny Lang when he was 12 took him from a kid with a passion for guitar and put him on the path to being a professional musician. A year later his dad was carting him around to local blues jams. The novelty of a 13 year old kid joining his elders on stage in smoky bars was soon replaced by a real appreciation for Cody's hard work, dedication, and talent. Since then, Cody has grown into a killer guitarist with a voice and stage presence that are intensely captivating.

Kevin Scott Jam session

Kevin Scott still remembers the first time he heard Col. Bruce Hampton's music. He was 17 years old when a record shop owner in Dothan, Alabama, slid him a copy of the Late Bronze Age's 1980 LP, Outside Looking Out. Since fronting the Hampton Grease Band for the 1971 cult classic LP Music to Eat, Hampton has honed his persona as a guru of surrealist musical improvisation. Hearing the album for the first time was a formative experience for Scott, one that sent him down the path of a life as a musician obsessed with the vanguard of musical creativity.

Bonaventure Quartet Sopo Playboys

"The Bonaventure Quartet’s SoPo Playboys featuring Charles Williams and Nick DeSebastian on guitars with Mike Beshara on bass faithfully recreate the sound and ambience of a French nightclub in Montmarte in the 1930s. The repertoire is primarily the music of Django Reinhardt, the great French gypsy guitar virtuoso of the 1930s-50s. Django was an illiterate, gypsy guitar virtuoso who combined his mastery of European classical and ethnic music with the American swing style as exemplified by Louis Armstrong. The result is a unique acoustic music known as gypsy jazz, ranging from gypsy swing to French waltzes and gypsy bossas.
