The incredible guys in the Zac Brown Band have announced a benefit concert at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta. The GATH and ZBB have a cool history together. The first time they played the GATH was opening for Wilmot's band Ashtray and another band called Brighter Shade. John Hopkins (the bassist for ZBB) was in brighter shade and produced Ashtray's album. Hopkins and Wilmot grew up in the same town and started playing music together in high school. After that first show the crowds started growing exponentially every time the band came to Athens. Zac's last show at the GATH was the same week that 'chicken fried' hit number one on the charts (that was one crazy night!). Zac and his band are showing incredible generosity and tons of love for the Athens music scene by doing this benefit show. It's shaping up to be an incredible night of music with lots of special guests and surprises. The Zac Brown Band has really blown up lately and we are so proud to have these guys in our corner.
I completed this new Phoenix poster to help raise money. Be sure to pick one up at the show. It's a 2 color print on French Speckletone Oatmeal paper.
