TASTEBUD

Originally started by lead guitarist Ryan Given, Tastebud has over thirty combined years experience in the music industry and has been gaining some serious traction in the greater Atlanta area.  With all members having very similar but distinct backgrounds they all bring them heavy focus on styles like jazz, funk, southern rock, and psychedelic jams. Tastebud has been described as, ” A group that really brings the magic with them, to every venue they play.”

When TasteBud was started five years ago,the band played in a few small venues right outside of the D.C. area and later relocated to Atlanta. After the band took a couple years off to develop and refine their sound, TasteBud emerged as a promising talent in the Atlanta Music Scene. TasteBud has always been a band that was built on a foundation of friendship and family. A positive message that is associated with their music is the core value that is brought with them at every show they play.

After five years, Tastebud has a sound that is more refined than ever and we are constantly looking for ways to improve our sound. TasteBud’s mission is to create a jam-style listening experience like never before!


DESMOND JONES

Desmond Jones is a five-piece funk/rock/jazz fusion band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. With original music written to complement the group's sound as a whole, the music is centered around melodic guitar riffs, smooth bass lines, funky drum beats, and tasteful saxophone. 

Since 2012 this unique group has played with groups like Dopapod, The Werks, Kung Fu, EOTO, Marco Benevento, TAUK, The Verve Pipe, Badfish, Here Come the Mummies, The Main Squeeze and many more. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, Phish, Charles Mingus, The Band, and Led Zeppelin to name a few.

Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high energy shows and is proud to say that each set list and each song is different from show to show.


SONO LUMINI

Started in 2014 By Dustin Goddard, Julian Goddard, and Phill Gayle; Sono Lumini is a constantly evolving entity. We base our music and our message around the tenants of love that we believe so dearly, and we are constantly learning new ways to share this love and experience with others.
