Time for our first GABBAfest 2017 announcement! Our Friday night opener is a band familiar to GABBA regulars - Royal Johnson! - Royal Johnson hosted the GABBA Member's Jam in 2016 in addition to presenting the official GABBAfest Aftershow at Grant's Lounge. The band will once again be hosting our Member's Jam. Chance Royal and Andy Johnson made their first GABBAfest appearance in 2011 with Mystery Road. Chance and Andy along with bandmates Kevin Vines and Joanie Ferguson are guaranteed to get GABBAfest 2017 off to a rocking start!
Now for the next GABBAfest announcement - our Friday night headliner is a reunion of some of our favorite musicians! It's Lefty Collins and the No Mercy Band featuring JP Vancura, Pete Vancura and Angel Murillo. Born and raised in Chicago, Lefty played over 500 shows at the legendary House of Blues and opened for or shared the stage with Jimmy Buffett, Chris Isaak, BB King, Peter Frampton and many others. Relocating to Gadsden. Alabama in 2008, Lefty formed a band that went to the finals in the 2012 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. While he is now pursuing a solo career on the Gulf Coast we are delighted that he is reuniting with his former Chicago bandmates for GABBAfest 2017!
Now for our final GABBAfest announcement for today: On Saturday, September 23rd at the Douglass Theatre, GABBA presents An Evening with Butch Trucks and the Freight Train! Founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, drummer Butch Trucks will be joined on stage by world renowned blues guitarist Damon Fowler, keyboard master Bruce Katz, Florida based percussionist Garrett Dawson, blues hall of famer Chris Vitarello on guitar, Matt Walker on Fender Bass and the very talented Heather Gillis. All of us at GABBA are elated to have one of the original members of the Allman Brothers at our 25th anniversary celebration!
