The Georgia Thunderbolts
The Georgia Thunderbolts
THE GEORGIA THUNDERBOLT'S hail from the sleepy town's of Rome and Taylorsville, Georgia, where magnolia's, cotton and peaches grow. Moonshine flows through the area like the Coosa, Oostanaula and Etowah rivers that wind through the "7 hill's" and meet in the once riverboat shipping mecca of the south. A perfect scenario for young boy's to dream and create their own unique style of music surrounded by the same environment that spawned Georgia great's James Brown, Otis Redding, and the Allman Brothers band.

THE GEORGIA THUNDERBOLT'S origin's traces back to 2014. Bristol Perry, the drummer, who's heavily influenced by greats like Bonham of

Led Zeppelin and John Fred Young of Black Stone Cherry met lead guitarist Riley Couzzourt, who is influenced by Duane Allman, Dickie Bett's, Gary Rossington and many other classic and modern rock guitarist's. After football practice one afternoon at Armuchee High School, the two decided they had the calling to start a band. Shortly after they recruited Zach Everett, bass, keyboards and vocals from Taylorsville who sites

Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament, Geezer Butler and Berry Oakley as influences, the band named themselves SOH and they we're off and running.

Logan Tolbert from Taylorsville had been honing his guitar skills on southern guitarist's Steve Gaines, Derek Trucks and Jerry Reed as well as Clapton and Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page. He was looking to join a band and went to see Riley, Bristol and Zach play.

Logan brought along a friend TJ Lyle, vocal's, harp, guitar and piano, also from Taylorsville. TJ's only live performances at this point was singing in church with the exception of jumping on stage once in a bar and stealing the show with his voice. TJ liked what he felt and started singing at a local bar on open mic nights.

One fateful night in 2016, Riley, Bristol and Zach came to audition for a gig at a bar in Taylorsville and heard TJ singing. They loved his voice and asked him to join their band. Needing a great second guitarist, Logan was brought on board. The line up for the next move and the engine of the Georgia Thunderbolt's was complete.

THE GEORGIA THUNDERBOLT'S sound and persona travels many road's. Influenced by Southern Rock, English Rock, Heavy Metal, Blues, Jazz, R & B, Soul and country intermingled with modern rock styles and sensibilities create a one of a kind band and bring to mind the meaning of REAL.
Ballistic Rhino
Ballistic Rhino
We are an instrumental rock band from the metro Atlanta area. We are just looking to play music and have a good time doing so. No message, no politics, no heart ache, just primal like sounds to make you feel whatever emotion you choose.
South Rock
South Rock
SOUTH ROCK is a high energy rock band that takes modern southern rock to a whole new level. Combining their classic rock roots and southern rock influences to create a totally new, fresh and original southern rock sound.
High Mountain Prospect
High Mountain Prospect
We're High Mountain Prospect, a folk band with a touch of funk from Dahlonega Georgia! We are all full time students, who love music, and had a garage, so starting a band was the only natural thing to do.
Antle
Antle is a premier choice in the Southeast region for original rock music and all things edgy. Their innovative and gritty sound keep the crowds turning up in droves wanting more. With the release of their first album titled, "Far From Famous", the first part of 2017 has generated a massive amount of buzz around these young, talented guys. But, to hear them reflect on this new found fame, comes their burning desire for huge success and they will tell you, "we are just getting started'!
Styx Tribute - Grand Paradise

Grand Paradise pays tribute to this music by performing many of their iconic songs from their catalogue. Expert musicianship, attention to detail, tons of performance experience and 5 strong singers, allow Grand Paradise to recreat the great music of Styx.
