Bands Play for Hours Without a Break

After many requests from brides, some of the Music Garden Corporate and wedding bands have elected to add an upgrade option to play straight through without break for 3 and ½ hours.  In order to accomplish this, they add two to three members so that they can keep the energy up the entire night while performing not only the early jazz and cocktail standards but all dance songs from Motown music to the high energy Hip Hop and Top 40 songs.  Party bands that are offering this option include Georgia R&B and Top 40 sensation, Az Izz, Mobile, Alabama party and dance bands Musical Fantasy, 4 Barrel Funk, and Powerhouse,  Alabama dance and show band 2nd Coming, Florida variety band, Black Jacket, Mississippi  Motown and Soul band, Compozitionz, and Georgia party bands, City Heat and Executive Soul.  More of the bands are working on this option as well.

Grace Potter to Perform at Huntington College's CloverJam

Huntington College in Montgomery will have Grace Potter perform for CloverJam.  The concert booked by Music Garden starts at 8 p.m. in Roland Arena on the historic campus of Huntington College. Grace Potter with her band, Nocturnals, has recently been on tour  in Europe with The Avett Brothers.  She is excited to be coming back to the U.S. and is looking forward to performing for college students on the campus of Huntington. As well as being a multi-instrumentalist Grace Potter is known for her vocal qualities (sometimes compared to rock and blues cult singers like Janis Joplin or Koko Taylor) as well as for her vibrant energy on stage. Besides playing in the Nocturnals (of which she was a founder, along with drummer Matt Burr and guitarist Scott Tournet), she has released solo material and collaborated with other artists.

Indie-Progressive Rock Band Moon Taxi - a Great College Party Pick

Moon Taxi has been booked by Music Garden for an Auburn University fraternity event in April.  This is one great college band from Nashville, Tennessee that has completely developed their own incredible distinct sound.  Moon Taxi was founded in 2006 by Trevor Terndrup (vocals, guitar), Tommy Putnam (bass), Spencer Thomson (guitar, programming), Tyler Ritter (drums), and Wes Bailey (keys) while attending Belmont University.  After playing nightclubs, festivals, and fraternities throughout the Southeast for over six years, the band has become one of the bigger college bands in the region.

Nappy Roots at University of Georgia, Athens March 23, 2013


Nappy Roots have been confirmed by Music Garden for a performance at University of Georgia in Athens Georgia on March 23, 2013. Since Nappy Roots was formed while many of the members were at Western Kentucky University, the band has always felt a strong connection to their fans who attend college. This national Hip Hop band performance will bring one huge University of Georgia fraternity party!

By far one of the most underrated Hip-Hop acts to have emerged over the past few years, their accomplishments and the milestones they’ve reached are the stuff of often-referenced Hip-Hop legacies. But theirs' remains a legacy that isn’t celebrated nearly as much as it should be… at least not by the “industry.” The fans, on the other hand, recognize just what sets Nappy Roots apart: consistency. In addition to their two independent releases – "The Humdinger" and "Pursuit of Nappyness," released in 2008 and 2010 respectively– Nappy Roots has provided their fans with new music every year since 2004, amassing a total of no less than 10 full-length albums and mixtapes.
