Music Menu 

The Teddy Adams Group

Trombonist Adams is one of Savannah’s main men of jazz. He’s released several CDs, and is a key figure in the Coastal Jazz Association. Thurs., 8 pm, The Mansion on Forsyth Park.

Annie Allman

An extremely talented musician who’s as adept on the guitar and bass as she is the trap set. She honed her skills during years on the New York jazz scene, and is one of the more tasteful players around. Sun., 7 pm, Jazz’d Tapas Bar.

The Band In The Park

Excellent area cover band specializing in classic rock, pop and beach music. Fri. - Sat., 9:30 pm, Scandals (Tybee).

Bellyfull

Jazzy jam quartet that aspires to the realms of The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Herbie Hancock’s early ‘70s sides and Belew-era King Crimson. Their clav-heavy grooves and bouncy melodies surprisingly fresh. Sat., Savannah Blues.

The Tony Clark Project

New, mainstream jazz and R & B quartet (with vocals). Fri., 6 pm, North Beach Grill (Tybee) + 9:30 pm, Il Pasticcio.

Thomas Claxton

Solo acoustic versions of classic and modern rock hits, played and sung with gusto by The Long Awaited’s vocalist. Thurs., 7 pm, Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House + Fri. - Sat., 9 pm, The Bayou Café.

Bryan Clees & The Electric Cowboys

Award-winning country songwriter. Fri., The Island Grill (Pt. Wentworth).

Kenneth Cowan

Dour New York acoustic songwriter who moved here in 2004. His “heroin love songs” can seem a bit obvious at times, but their dreamy, descending guitar lines and hushed, matter-of-fact vocal delivery will likely strike a chord with fans of Leonard Cohen or Elliot Smith. Sat., 8 pm, The Sentient Bean.



Eat Mo' Music

Funky instrumental dance grooves and soul jazz. Sat., 9 pm, Jazz’d Tapas Bar.

Gonzalez

Decadent Atlanta stoner rock that’s equal parts Captain Beyond (!), Thin Lizzy and Sleep – boasting fuzzed-out guitar riffs that are larger than moons of Jupiter, and plenty of cowbell. With brothers in arms The Gods of Mars, who bow down to Dio-era Sabbath. Fri., The Jinx.

Juroso

Whenever Savannah’s P-Groove is between tours, members pop up at local venues under a variety of alternate names, blowing off steam and keeping the lights on. This is another of their alter-egos. Wed., Locos Deli & Pub.

Qualifier

Tight Statesboro trio citing Radiohead and Soundgarden as key influences. They play originals, cover the RHCP and Pearl Jam, and say they are viewed by other ‘Boro bands as “the Godfathers of rock.” Sat., The Island Grill (Pt. Wentworth).

Paul Reeves

Young local acoustic songwriter (think Howie Day) who’s recently relocated to Atlanta to further his career. Wed., 7 pm, Driftaway Café (Wilmington Island) + Fri., 7 pm, Tubby’s (Thunderbolt).

The River Cats

Roots-rock duo of guitarist/vocalist Jason Bible and bassist/vocalist Eric Dunn. They cover Springsteen, Dylan, Petty, etc... Thurs., Finnegan’s Wake + Sat., 6 pm, Felipé’s Mexican Restaurant.

Shady Deal

Mississippi-based jam band taken under the wing of the legendary producer/keyboard man Jim Dickinson (Stones, Dylan, Big Star). Their sound is at times similar to peers like Umphrey’s McGee. Sun., Riders Lounge (Hilton Head) + Mon., JJ Cagney’s.

Superhorse

First local gig by this 7-piece All-Star garage band since their debut CD release. Influences range from The Small Faces to Yo La Tengo, while their lineup features members of such noteworthy area bands as GAM, Redneck GReece Delux, City of Lindas and Splitfinger. Sat., The Jinx.

Joe Pope & The Tams

One of many touring incarnations of this famed shag outfit plays signature hits and newer material at this fundraiser for Open Arms and the Inner City Night Shelter. Fri., 7 pm, Savannah Station.

Too Blue

Electric blues combo centered around guitarists Ray Lundy (Bottles & Cans) and Jeff Beasley. Sat., 9 pm, Mercury Lounge.

Tradewinds

Established local sextet playing vintage beach, shag and soul hits. Sat., 9 pm, The Oyster Bar (Wilmington Island).

The Greg Williams Band

Soulful and funky rock covers (Dylan, Hendrix, Little Feat) and originals from one of the area’s most prolific and accomplished songwriters. Fri., 9 pm, The Oyster Bar (Wilmington Island).
