The Big Fundamentals is a trio that consists of Andrei Mihailovic on guitar, James Goodhand on bass and Greg Callas on drums. They met at the University of Georgia and formed a band over their common love for jazz, classical music and Frank Zappa. They play mostly in jazz venues in Athens, as well as at house parties, and have had a few performances in Atlanta. The band says they are, "all about sustainabilty," and at least one identifies as an eco-terrorist. This is one of the best bands we've every seen so come out and hear them!
Too often, when discussing music and particularly the creation thereof, preconceived rules not only hinder but cripple creative thought entirely. Ben Wetzelberger and Eric Guenther decided that to contrast the strict set of 'rules' we had set for themselves in their main project, progressive metal outfit From Exile, we would need another side of the coin, so to speak.
Onset was created to serve this purpose. The band will self-produce and release a recording in early 2010.
Vortex Park was founded in 2005 when singer/songwriter, Alex Wolf, teamed up with double bassist, Justin Roberts, and began playing the Atlanta local scene. With Roberts’ solid and thumping bass lines and Wolf’s thoughtful lyrics and extremely eclectic writing styles, Vortex Park made an early impression on its audiences. Brad Stott and Rurik Nunan later joined, adding a dynamic rhythmic presence on percussion and a wailing and melodic violin giving Vortex Park depth and emotion that continue to attract new and diverse audiences.
