Josh Graff

From a recent press release:

 “Josh Graff is a real bluesman!” -Joseph Palmer, owner of The Hangar Bar and Grill

On Friday, June 1 the walls of The Hummingbird Stage and Tap Room will be reverberating with the sound of traditional blues guitar. Josh Graff has been making a name for himself in the Macon, GA area for nearly fifteen years now, and says, “I finally feel like I’ve found myself.”, and where better than where it all began. The twenty six year old guitarist/singer/songwriter has gone full circle, playing everything from blues, R&B, gospel, country, pop, and rock, to hip-hop all over the country from coffee shops, bars, churches, frat houses, festivals, and music venues, to opening shows for Blues Traveler, Huey Lewis and the News, Kansas, and .38 Special.

Josh Graff spent his early teens playing blues guitar and sitting in with bands like Stillwater and The Wall. By the time he had graduated high school, Graff had released three independent albums of mostly original music, and gained a local following doing solo acoustic shows. Then came the creation of Josh Graff & Co., which played relentlessly all across the southeast, and in 2006, recorded an EP in Atlanta, GA with Grammy Award Winning producer/singer/songwriter/musician Clay Cook (Zac Brown Band, John Mayer, Sugarland, Shawn Mullins, Marshall Tucker Band). After a few years together, Josh Graff & Co. went their separate ways and Graff found himself moving to Atlanta, GA to play guitar in Ben Deignan and Suburban Soul. Two years later you could find Graff on stage every Sunday playing guitar at a local church. Still not feeling as though he was doing what he knew he was here to do, Josh Graff found himself at a crossroads.

In early 2012 Josh Graff decided go back to his roots, and be true to himself, as a blues guitarist, doing something he has always wanted to do, put an all-blues band together. Graff throws a few original tunes into an eclectic mixture of traditional blues covers from Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, JB Lenoir, Otis Rush, Freddie and B.B. King, to name a few. With his ever-evolving and rotating backing band of A list musicians, Graff and his band keep the house rockin’ and the good times rollin’ all night.

The first time I met Josh, he sat in with a friend of ours to play lead. Josh proceeded to rip his guitar apart. He played behind his head, behind his back, he walked out to the crowd and stepped up on the fireplace. He really got the crowd going, and when he walked away, many thought the show was over.
In many ways, it was.
I'm bringing this to light, because it appears that Josh is trying to downplay his amazing stage presence. Does he play the blues? Yes, very well; but he is a professional showman waiting to scorch the venue with searing licks AND attitude.

Failtrain

80's, 90's, and Modern Rock!! Great sound! Alternative music, Hard Rock in and around Warner Robins, Macon, and Columbus!!

When Tim Burris, (the tall, dark, and handsome lead singer of this outfit) called on Lewis Smith to round out the lineup, he was really showing off his genius.

Lewis is exactly what FailTrain needed. Sure they were a force to be reckoned with before , but with Lewis onboard the whole dynamic shifted; the song selection changed ever so slightly, and the overall sound quality was boosted to 11.

Today, FailTrain is beyond compare. No other band in Middle Ga. commands the same attention. Don't miss an opportunity to check these guys out.....while you can still catch them locally.

Check 'em out!!!

Travis Denning

Definitely, Middle Georgia's next big export! Travis has the skills and depth of someone twice his age
Check him out here, and then find him performing...Get a Pic with him now...This dude is going to be the next Keith Urban...er,...umm,..sorry...the FIRST Travis Denning.

Currently, he is recording a country album, but you can catch a glimpse of him working onstage with Homeless Hill- adding just a little more thrust to their already thunderous delivery, and teaming up with Josh Graff for some blues resurrection.

So, you're probably wondering; "He plays Country, Heavy Rock, and Old School Blues: What is HIS style?"
The answer is simple: He can't be restricted to a style. He controls you. He regulates your adrenaline, your tears, your memories. But he's so nice and humble you can't help but like him. He makes you search for a flaw, because he's so damn good, and you can't help but curse him for it.  I just realized I can sum him up with a line from Billy Corgan....
He will "disarm you with a smile, and cut you like you want (him) to."
 His unparalleled awesomeness makes me sick, and I love him for it.

Homeless Hill


From their facebook info: Because it is SPOT ON.
Born in the blazing heat of a Deep South summer in 2009, the award winning band Homeless Hill quickly developed a local following that outstripped their expectations. While performing to live audiences with hook-driven originals and innovative covers that off-set their tight rock riffs, the guys, front man and songwriter Darin Curtis, drummer Danny Savage, and bassist Adam Crump collaborated to create “Set It On Fire”, their first full-length album, which has now reached the ears of thousands and innumerable people through airplay, iTunes, and live shows at venues and festivals throughout the Southeastern U.S. "Set It On Fire" has been described by newspapers as "11 tracks of gut-check rock n roll!"

Now with their fourth member, Travis Denning on lead guitar; Homeless Hill is evolving and working on a sophomore album that is sure to set the rock scene ablaze yet again. Influenced by rock n roll greats such as Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus and Alterbridge; this hard hitting quartet plan to burn it down, one song at a time.



Anyone who has had the experience of seeing Homeless Hill perform live will be sure to tell you about an amazing show, the dynamic stage presence...and as Chris Horne of the Macon Telegraph writes, “relying on their powerful hooks, and vocal harmonies, if you catch one of their live shows you may just become one of the Homeless ‘homies’...”
Rachel Helie, writer and contributor for the 11th Hour HoCo states, “There is more to rock and roll than sex and drugs. Its takes hard work, focus, and sheer force of will. If anyone is going to prove that it’s going to be Homeless Hill.”
Homeless Hill has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with legends such as Doc Holliday and Wet Willie. With their whole career ahead of them "The Hill" has higher aspirations even still. So in the immortal words of "Homeless Homies" everywhere can we get a big "Hill Yeah!?"
Check out their video and then ask yourself... Where are they playing next?
You're gonna want to get there early.


I witnessed a show recently at the Cavern and my impression was consistent with everything I had heard so far. These guys rock. If there is a better Hard Rock band in Middle Ga. I'd love to see them. The parking lot was packed- seriously- there was NO place to park. I have never seen so many people in the Cavern before.


I could try to explain to you that they had some complicated guitar work going on....Or I could try to describe the mix  which was pretty close to perfect....But none of that will convey the message appropriately to the average person.   How 'bout this; every good looking chick in Middle Ga. was there, banging her head and singing along to every word.I have yet to hear anything negative about this band....and in Middle Ga., that alone speaks volumes.
Watch this video. Then find them on facebook.

Lewis and Matt

Lewis Smith is a local Hard rock favorite! His band, the Hollow, still recieves accolades and air play for their freshman album. Sadly, members of the Hollow are spread as far away as Arizona and California, and there are no plans of a reunion at this time.

Matt Lang is the frontman of Great White Lion Snake; a full on, blast from the hair-band past that takes you back to the hard-rocking party you had during the late 80's/early 90's. They still tour and do well, but when he gets a chance to go acoustic....He calls Lewis.

Lewis and Matt is the acoustic duo that plays all of the hard rock, heavy metal, songs but they do it on acoustic guitars. That means, you'll get the big party without the excruciating volume.

Tastefully restrained, but they still maintain a fire....two of the BEST all-round musicians in Middle Ga.

Big Hairy Monster



The outrageous frontman for Ran$om has teamed up with the oddball geniuses of Big Hairy Monster to provide Middle Ga. with a much needed kick in the nuts.....(or maybe that was just me).

Big Hairy Monster is a band of music afficionados who had gotten tired of the same old tunes being pandered around town. They started writing originals, and playing the covers that lesser bands were afraid to touch. This led to Big Hairy Monster being considered by many to be the "cream on top of the cream of the crop".

Then came the addition of LegenDerry Derry to the band as frontman. You may remember him from a band called Ran$om that rocked Middle Ga a few years ago.


Now the whole dynamic has shifted into high gear.

Perfectly performed covers AND memorable originals with one of the only REAL FRONTMEN in Middle Ga.  They believe crowd interaction is a big part of the show, so you should be ready for anything.

I feel there can be no debate: This band gives the most electrifying, over the top performance in Middle Ga.

DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF MISSING
The LegenDerry Big Hairy Monster Show.
