Event Headliners:

May 22nd - China GroveChina Grove is a top-shelf Doobie Brothers tribute band from the Tampa Bay area, whose repertoire spans the many decades and styles of the legendary California group. From the jammin’ rock of “Long Train Runnin” to the jazzy “Takin’ it to the Streets”, and the bluesy “Dark Eyed Cajun Woman” to the Grammy award winning pop of “What a Fool Believes”, this group blazes through a sizzling set of memory-jarring classic hits and album cuts with stunning accuracy and passion. Let’s just say these guys “bring it”!

July 4th - Rupert's Orchestra - The Rupert’s Orchestra became nationally known for their exciting performances at Rupert’s Nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia. For over eight years they played to packed houses and were voted Atlanta’s best house band every year. They have since become the top party band in the Southeast.
The band is comprised of some of the finest talent from around the nation. At the core of the group is a driving rhythm section accented by a fiery horn section, and an explosive Latin percussionist. Fronting the band are four of the hottest vocalists around, each with a unique sound, performing both lead and background vocals.

July 24th - Drivin' N Cryin' - With a gold album in 1991, Drivin' N Cryin' and hit songs such as “Honeysuckle Blue” and “Straight To Hell”, this show is sure to be a night to remember in Chamblee!
In 1991 the more hard-rocking Fly Me Courageous ended up being the band's most commercially successful album, with the album being certified gold. The next few years the band toured with artists such as Neil Young and Soul Asylum. In 1993, DNC released another album produced by Geoff Workman, entitled Smoke, which peaked at No. 95 on the Billboard’s Top 200 album chart.

August 28th - Ricochet - In 1996 the members of country super group Ricochet watched their debut single, “What Do I Know”, rise to the Top 5 earning the band the honor of the highest charting debut single of the year. The follow up single release, “Daddy’s Money”, became an immediate across the board hit, rising to #1 on the Radio & Records Country Singles Chart, the Gavin Country Singles Chart and the Billboard Country Singles Chart (where it stayed #1 for two consecutive weeks). The band’s distinctive musical style and intricate harmonies earned them the recognition as one of the most popular vocal groups in country music, a mantle they still wear today. Now, more than fifteen years later, “The Hardest Working Band In Country Music” is still going strong.
