Big Mike & The Booty Papas

From the FB page:
 "Whether you’re carrying the world on your shoulders or primed for a good time Big Mike and the Booty Papas know exactly what to do to get you up and moving. One thing is certain, you won’t leave the show the same way you came in. Chances are with Big Mike and the Booty Papas in the house you’ll be shakin’ what your moma gave you before the night is through…dancin’, laughin’ and lovin’ your worries away."

There's not much I could add to that. These guys really know how it's supposed to be done.

I saw him perform at a blues club probably 12 years ago. He had me chuckling at his witicisms and his observations. Early in the night he announced:  "Don't waste yer money on the bubble gum machine in the bathroom! The gum has gone bad ......but it makes one hell of a bubble." Later, I ended up in the bathroom and looking around, I wondered where the bubble gum machine was...and why would anyone put a bubble gum machine in a men's room in the first place? I had given up my search when I saw the condom machine and realized what he was talking about. I laughed so hard that night.....and I still crack up everytime that memory strikes me.

THAT'S what Big Mike does, and does better than anyone else in Middle Ga.: He gives you memories. Every show is special. The music is authentic. The banter is fresh, creative, and hilarious. You leave with a story to tell the next day or a silly comment to talk about 12 years later.

I got the honor of meeting Big Mike a few years ago. Back then, he certainly fit the moniker, BIG Mike, and it appeared to me his heart was even bigger than he was. Everyone I talk to who knows him will pretty much say the same thing -"He is the kindest guy you could hope to find."

Check him out and ask around. You won't find  better live entertainment in these parts than Big Mike and the Booty Papa's.

Big Ernie's Garage Band

A collection of historical musicians in the Georgia area that grew up performing in the 60's and 70's, now performing at special events and festivals. "We customize the gig to the age group" according to Ernest F. Rogers (percussionist, drummer and founder of the group). " We have performed in the past with Joey Stuckey as lead vocal and guitar." Basically we change the musicians to the demand of the event whether it is rock, soul, R&B, reggae, jazz or world music. Big Ernie also performs solo doing corporate events, parties and lectures at libraries / schools on art, music, culture, anthropology and music.

Ok, yes. It sounds like a bunch of gangsters and flapper girls got together and formed a band...And the name...The Missin' Links Showband makes me think that they all look like Sasquatch.....Far from it Ladies are gorgeous and the fellas are gentlemen. They've put the time in to get great at puttin' on a show and it is immediately apparent when the walk in the door!

"Georgia's #1 beach music band, The Missin' Links Showband, has been thrilling audiences throughout the southeast since 1965. The group's powerful horn and rhythm sections have been heard at venues like Savannah Ga's Oktoberfest, The Ga Peach Festival, The Ga Peanut Festival, The Cherry Blossom Festival, and many other private venues through out the south."

 "The Missin’ Links Showband is recognized as Georgia’s premiere oldies and beach music group. The group continues to perform at select night clubs, weddings, reunions, and corporate events. The sound that was born in 1965 has not changed, but has grown more powerful over the years. The music of a generation lives on in The Missin’ Links Showband."

Old Man Shoes

From their facebook fan page:

"Old Man Shoes...If that name doesn't spark a nod of interest then the songs they seem to pull straight from the foggy banks of your mind should. Its almost as if they went through your old, dust covered collection of cassette tapes and CDs and pulled select gems to insert that all too familiar feeling. While the energy of this group has an odd presence, it seems to effortlessly flow into the audience giving the sense "we are all in this together". If your looking for the everyday safe and tried covers this band is probably not for you. But, if you are looking for that nostalgic, not everyday tune, nothing is quite as comfortable as Old Man Shoes."

Just Friends

Are you in the mood for some music for grown folks? These guys are a GREAT R&B band! I found them playing at Applebee's on Riverside Dr. (YES. Applebee's) They are a full 6 piece band, and they play GREAT! I heard them soundcheck with The Temptaions' "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone", and NAILED IT! No horns here, but the keyboards did the trick. I have seen most bands in Middle Ga. and I have to put these guys in the top 2%.  Definitely cream of the crop.

Scott Pallot

Scott Pallot is the consummate professional artist. 14 Years spent in Nashville as a songwriter, he has made friends with some of the most recognizable names in the business.

 Quite flexible, he’s performed for three Presidential Inaugurations, the Olympics as well as Nashville’s premier listening room, the Bluebird Cafe. He not only performs cover tunes from James Taylor to Train, but is also writes his own songs that range in ages from eight to eighty.

While playing the Nashville scene in the nineties, he signed with a children’s label (Jimmy Jangle Records) and took the stage name Scooter. In one short year, Scooters album “Calling All Kids” was nominated for a Grammy and captured the Parent’s Choice Recording Honors. His second album “Miles of Smiles” won the American Library Ass. Most Notable Children’s Recording. Seven of his song from the first two albums played in rotation on a 24-hour Children’s Satellite Network; including his smash hit “Super Duper Dancing Sneakers” which spent six months on Radio Aahs(Radio Disney) Top Ten. His music is currently being played throughout the country on digital cable’s Music Choice channels.

He was also included in a compilation CD with Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Robin Williams. As Scooter he also enjoys touring with “Kidstock”, a troupe comprised of some the finest names in children’s entertainment.

Scott has enjoyed producing the music for his brothers (Flip Pallot) award winning ESPN show “Walkers Caye Chronicles”, and is now producing the music for his new show on the VERSUS sports channel “Flip Pallot Fishing the Keys”.

During his career in music he has enjoyed sharing the stage with Marshall Tucker, Charlie Daniels Band, Doctor John, Sub Dudes, Heart, Yoko Ono Band, Fresh Out, Tom Scholtz (Boston), Dobie Gray, Styx, Grand Funk Railroad, Iron Butterfly, Steppenwolf, Loose Skrews, Christopher Cross, Jefferson Starship, Sammy Hagar, Blue Oyster Cult, Badfinger, America, Mitch Ryder, Jim Kimball, Joan Jett, Black Hearts, Rare Earth, Crystal Gale, Richie Havens, The Chambers Brothers, Three Dog Night, Dwight Yoakam and Waylon Jennings. Local artist Chris Neal says: "Scott Pallot is the kind of player, other players strive to be."

 His PA system designs have produced the tone, clarity, and 'crispness' envied by every acoustic musician who hears him. Kind and approachable, he has mastered the art of making friends with his audience. After 5 minutes of conversation, you feel as though he is a guy you would want to go fishin' with. Friend him on Facebook and catch his live show whenever you get the chance.

JuBee and The Morning After

If the name sounds familiar to you, it should. They've received accolades from across the country, and have opened for HipHop superstar "Pitbull". They've been on radio and television, most recently appearing on "Jimmy Kimmel LIVE." And if you're wondering...Yes. They do live right here in Middle Ga.
Dwayne "Jubee" Webb previously ruled the Middle Ga undergound scene as 1/2 of the cross genre/HipHop based duo known as City Council. "Jubee" is one of those guys with humility and grace off stage, but once on stage, he commands attention and delivers his marching orders with fire and force. Danny Davis lays down amazingly smooth funk/jazz bass lines and Alex Scarborough pounds out the beat from the back of the stage- together giving the music the backbone needed to deliver "Jubee's" lyrical onslaught. Child prodigy, Alec Stanley with his funky rock/jazz guitar completes the quartet.   
These guys compliment each other the way more bands should. No egos running wild here. They are a cacophony of flavors in a harmonious stew. "(Four) great tastes, that taste great together", if you will.
