FOLK SOUL REVIVAL
Folk Soul Revival is one of the southeast’s most beloved and sought after acts. Performing original, country-roots-rock, FSR consistently plays sold-out shows from Washington, D.C. and beyond. The band's radio-ready lyrics, driving melodies, and the distinct, velvety vocals of front man Daniel Davis have garnered the band much success with high profile gigs opening for the likes of Travis Tritt, Jason Isbell, Eric Church, Justin Townes Earle, Dr. Ralph Stanley, and more. FSR’s unique brand of country-tinged Americana has earned the band a loyal fan base lovingly referred to as “The Congregation.”
Waller is the last name and what the band is called. Songs and such about death and love. Americana cause it's not country and it's not rock and roll. All music is folk music. Original tunes played for the sound guy.
JACKS RIVER BAND
Jacks River Band (n) Pronunciation: /dʒæks / rɪvər/ band/ A formulated blend of blues & rock with raw, funkadelic energy.
Known for their driving blues-rock style and extended improvised jams, Jacks River Band performs with an undeniably contagious energy. Their improvisational funkadelic rock sound features a hard hitting rhythm section, gut-busting guitar leads, and soul soothing vocals. Drawing on legendary influences such as The Allman Brothers Band, Joe Bonamassa, The Grateful Dead, and The Derek Trucks Band, The Jacks River Band delivers a uniquely blended sound that pushes the boundaries of blues rock, yet still remains familiar.
Their new album is being released this summer (June 23) and was recorded in Atlanta by Tony Terrebone at Zac Recording. The music brings to light the diverse musical influences found among the band members. Tracks like “Bleedin’ Blues” and “Bear Left the Woods” pay homage to the great musical legacy of the Blues, while “Lay Me Down” features hard nosed guitar licks and tribal drum beats reminiscent of Tool. Hard driving grooves on “Funkfucious Say”, “Soul Free” and “One Eyed Jack” transport the listener to the early 70’s rock scene, and the feel good, funky vibes on “St. Charles” and “Bullfrog” get everyone on the dance floor.
In the past year, Jacks River Band has rocked the stage at renowned venues such as Smith's Olde Bar, Madlife Stage & Studios, 37 Main, Tannery Row, The Hummingbird Tap Room, Good 'Ol Days, and Buffington's. They have given back to the community by partnering with The Songs For Kids Foundation and performing at their benefit concerts. Their music has been regularly featured on Atlanta's Rock 100.5 Local Licks and was featured on Atlanta's 97.1 The River's "Live Lounge Acoustic Classics".
