The Georgia Satellites
The Georgia Satellites
Double platinum recording artists, The Georgia Satellites, brought us hits like "Keep Your Hands to Yourself", "The Hippy-Hippy Shake" and "Battleship Chains” which helped shape the future of Country Rock across the nation.

Founded by Rick Richards, and Dan Baird, The Georgia Satellites were one of the most ferocious bands of the 1980s. What set them apart from the other 10,000 groups that cranked their amps to 11, was that their wild riffs and tanked cries came from a quartet that understood their place in rock tradition and fought hard to solidify it with each recording. Critically acclaimed albums and mind-bending performances earned the boys a permanent spot in music history.
After a brief sabbatical following the departure of Baird, The Georgia Satellites returned with a vengeance in 1993. Led by Richards, Price, and joined by drummer Todd Johnston. In 2o10 they added Freddy McNeal on guitar and ‘old friend’ Bruce Smith on bass. They have packed houses around the world with their blistering brand of Southern rock.
The Rex Carroll Band
The Rex Carroll Band
Considered by many people as one of the most extraordinary rock guitarists in the world, Rex Carroll is an American born and bred musician who hails from the Chicago area. Like all great guitarists, Rex draws from a wide range of influences. From the earliest of American blues, Elmore James and Sister Rosetta Sharpe, through the rock and roll of the 50’s and 60’s, to the British Invasion. Everything from Little Richard to Jimi Hendrix. Coming of age in the 80’s, all the bands and guitar heroes of that era were also an influence.
Finally, Rex was discovered by the great talent scout Jim Delehant, who ran the A&R department at Atlantic Records for many years. Jim signed Rex to his first record deal for the label, and it’s been non-stop ever since.
Rex is known for several reasons - the bands he has put together (Fierce Heart, Whitecross, King James, Rex Carroll Band and several others), the melodic hard rock songs on the albums, his blistering classically influenced guitar solos, and the live concert tours. Performing in the USA, Europe, and South America have helped to mold his vision as well. Of late he has not only played the guitar on the albums, but has even been producing in the studio! Primarily for his own projects, but also occasionally for other artists.
Growing up in the blues-inspired 60’s and 70’s, Rex is a bit of a hybrid on the guitar. He’s able to draw inspiration from the more modern technical/shredding style of the 2000’s, but always comes back to a heavy blues influence. Classically trained on the violin, he went on to earn a degree in classical guitar studies. The melodic sensibility gained in the classical realm perfectly counter-balances the blues licks learned from Albert King and Johnny Winter.
This is what enables him to connect to a broad fan base, and lead Guitar Player Magazine to call out the “masterful solos...packed with authority” while Guitar For The Practicing Musician hailed “the birth of a guitar hero.”
