El Scorcho formed in the summer of 2004 with the goal of creating the highest quality Weezer experience next to actually seeing Weezer live. Their first show at the legendary "Lenny's" in Atlanta, GA was sold-out; the result set the stage of a successful future for El Scorcho. El Scorcho performs the best of the “Blue” and "Pinkerton" albums as well as the hits Buddy Holly, Hash Pipe, Undone - The Sweater Song, Beverly Hills, plus deeper cuts and rarities. The "Quintessential Weezer Tribute Band" quickly grew into one into one of the highest in-demand tribute acts across the Southeast. After Karl Koch (Weezer's "5th member" and website administrator) caught word of El Scorcho, he immediately started to post show dates and news clips about the tribute act on Weezer's website, http://weezer.com. El Scorcho had the privilege of performing on-stage with Weezer during their 2008 tour of the "Red" Album along side other Weezer fans. El Scorcho helped to organize The Beer and Whiskey Fest, a festival that includes beer, whiskey, and Bar-be-que sponsors and gives proceeds to a non-profit organization. The initial event generated over $5,000 for the victims of Hurricane Katrina and continues to be a huge Labor Day fund-raising event in Atlanta, GA.
RUNNING DOWN A DREAM: A TOM PETTY REVUE
Formed in summer 2017, Atlanta-based Runnin’ Down a Dream reproduces all of the beloved Tom Petty classics and deep tracks with a focus on providing an energetic live experience while staying true to the original recordings. To recreate the sounds of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at their peak, the band exudes a keen sense of detail for precise vocal harmonies, spot-on guitar sounds and performances, and an infectious, pounding rhythm section. The Runnin Down a Dream experience is punctuated by a dynamic visual stage show and audience engagement that celebrates the extensive Tom Petty catalogue.
“Working on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads /
Runnin’ Down a Dream”
After a slow but unstoppable rise in popularity, REM found themselves to be an international rock phenomenon. 1994 proved to be yet another year of growth in the bands career, with the release of Monster, they achieved another string of radio friendly power pop tunes…the fans were not disappointed. Atlanta’s M.E.R.M.E.R. captures the excitement and energy of this hard rocking yet artistic group of musicians. They capture not only the power and popularity of REM in their heyday but, also the murky and mysterious sound of their early college rock years with surprising authenticity. The sound is spot on. The vibe will take you back. Come join us on June 2nd and rock out with the summer of 94!
