GRAVITATION / SISTER SANDOZ / LOW FREQUENCY MESSIAH
$8 IN ADVANCE / $10 DAY OF
Formed along the reaches of the Great Dismal Swamp, Gravitation’s sound is melodic vocals, intricate and hard-hitting guitar riffs and throbbing tempo variations with a heavy dose of today’s rock/metal grind. With a voice likened to a “pissed-off angel,” lead-singer Meghan Powell was featured in several local bands in northeastern NC in her early teens. During her high-school years she immersed herself in the local theatre and music scenes and continued her performance training at East Carolina University. With a load of natural talent, guitarist Chris Herrin began playing on a public stage when he was only fifteen years old. He was the lead guitarist for a number of local cover bands before finding his hard rock niche with Meghan and Karl. Drummer Karl Gupton, originally from Claremont, Virginia, played the Tidewater/RVA music scene for many years in bands like Last Call and J.C. Possum. Influenced by a gamut of musical genres, Gravitation formed in 2010 when the members met while working on another musical project. By a combination of hard work and extreme luck, Gravitation met legendary rock guitarist and producer John LeCompt in October 2015. In a collaborative effort with LeCompt on bass guitar, Gravitation recorded Accelerate, their first EP at Red Room Studios in April 2016. The debut full length album is set to be released September 2017.
Sister Sandoz is an alternative rock/punk band based out of Macon, Georgia. The founding members, Master Sergeant Russ Hearst on guitar and opera singing Becky Sandoz Carlisle, have been playing together since 2013 and have added Russ’s son, drummer Ryan Hearst, and more recently math professor/bassist, Jody Wilkes, to their lineup. Sister Sandoz has just over a dozen original tunes, but are largely known in their hometown for their modified cover music ranging from Led Zeppelin to System of a Down to the Misfits to the Cure. They play a very diverse range of music that hits on anyone’s taste as long as they like rock’n’roll. With over 100 shows, including openers for 3 national acts under their belts, and a travel list that includes most of the East Coast and Detroit, Sister Sandoz has rock & will travel.
LOW FREQUENCY MESSIAH
Newly formed Low Frequency Messiah is introducing their sound to the middle Georgia music scene. The four piece offers a blend of melodic metal and heavy rock, calling to mind the soulful melodies of Alice In Chains and surfacing the classic heavy metal cries of Dio and Iron Maiden. Low Frequency Messiah's songs tackle overcoming pitfalls and have a place for the downtrodden. They lovingly refer to their fans as, Freqs. Welcome to the Freq Show!
