The Drinkery's monthly resident band, Magnolia Sons will get you out of your seat. Every second Saturday of the month Magnolia Sons throw a soul extravaganza called "The Great Getdown" it features a live performance by the band, DJs spinning old soul records, a free photobooth and door prizes. Oh...and its totally free. This Saturday it also happens to be The Drinkery's, DJ Gerald's birthday weekend so go buy him a drink (or bring him a donut from Holtman's) since it's FREE to get in!
Magnolia Sons is a nostalgic rock and soul group based out of Nashville, Tennessee. They are a 11-piece supergroup composed of artists and musicians from all over the United States. Their music is a tribute to the vintage sound of classic rock and soul from the 1960's and 1970's.
In the time of the resurgence of record collections, Magnolia Sons is both a throwback and a breath of fresh air. Inspired by The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops and the Temptations, Magnolia Sons have a sound that harkens back to the sound of 60ʼs soulsters and American Band Stand, and as a 11 piece, they definitely fit the retro profile. While many older fans will recognize the sound from their own record collections, it is new for many of their younger fans who can be found dancing along to the catchy tunes at many of Nashvilleʼs venues.
If you haven't witnessed this band before you are really doing yourself an injustice. Bring your best friends, your mom, that boring girl you sit next to at work...everyone is bound to get up and shake it!
