Folks this show is for everyone to come celebrate Drew Spencer’s graduation Party with Drew Spencer “Man of the Hr” opening and Bombadil headlining. The band has been on the road with the “Carolina Chocolate Drops for the past 5 months and has the same whimsical spirit with a host of influences from Weezer to The Kinks, their own musically diverse home state to the Cool Runnings soundtrack. Yes, really. And that versatility has brought them far; when Bombadil opened for The Avett Brothers in 2006, they caught the eye of Ramseur Records’ Dolph Ramseur and joined the label. They’ve toured nationally and performed at multiple festivals including Bonnaroo, FloydFest and Rhythm & Roots.

This show has been rescheduled to later date, The Corduroy Road, Opening act Drew Spencer & Midnight Fire
Posted on Feb.15, 2013
This show is always a great one not to miss. Since its inception by Drew Carman and Dylan Solise in early 2006, The Corduroy Road has melded bluegrass, Americana, folk rock, and old-time country with the rawest of live performances. The two, born and raised in the Central Kentucky Bluegrass Region where they learned their craft, now reside in the musical gem of the southeast: Athens, GA.
With the addition of John Cable on drums, Elijah NeeSmith on bass, and Cameron Thomas on electric guitar, The Corduroy Road quickly gained a reputation in Athens as an up and coming band on the scene after sharing the stage with such notable bands including The Avett Brothers, Paleface, The Packway Handle Band, Ian Thomas, Langhorne Slim, Trampled by Turtles and more.
“The chatty banjo, rolling harmonies, the acoustic guitar and melodic, Southern vocals are the name of the game for the Athens quartet. The music is so damn, well comfy, that the quaint country and roots music peppered with folk rock sounds warmly familiar.”
“Fans of anything from country to bluegrass to folk rock will especially enjoy The Corduroy Road’s notoriously lively shows.” -Flagpole Magazine.
“An aggressive touring schedule, emotive songwriting, and the band’s commitment to performing down home, honest music has established The Corduroy Road as a buzzworthy band on the indie roots rock scene.” -Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine
“The Corduroy Road captures early American folk music, while being known for its almost punk rock energy-driven live shows.” -Southeast Performer
”Athens, Georgia-based the Corduroy Road are no strangers to the stretch of bars, clubs, and highways scattered along southeastern region of the United States. Having previously released their debut album, Love is a War and their Live at the 40 Watt, the newly re-formed band has been earning its stripes the honest way over the past half-decade, gradually picking up fans at their always-energetic shows. The Corduroy Road’s latest effort, the independently released Two-Step Silhouette, highlights the group’s move from a bar band one would stumble upon to a group of guys who ought to (and surely will) deserve national attention.” -Pop Matters
”The Corduroy Road is one of Athens’ contemporary treasures. With the band’s extensive touring schedule, it’s often easy to catch the group performing on weekends. After six years, The Corduroy Road is far from slowing down; their acceleration is just beginning.” – Athens Music Junkie.com
”Hewed from natural fibers, The Corduroy Road intersects folk, country and bluegrass realms without regard to hipness or happenstance. Skilled musicians all, they tap tradition and create a timeless sensibility sure to get feet tapping and hips swinging. This Georgia quintet doubtless excels in concert, but
even on disc their irresistible pull is all so evident.” -NoDepression.com
