The Michael Stacey Band is a result of multi-talented musicians that were brought together while developing the ideal backing band for independent recording artist Michael Stacey. The process would span almost four years.
Michael Stacey was born in the small southern town of Hahira, GA, and spent most of his childhood traveling due to his father's occupation. Early on, Michael was influenced by an array of performers, from traditional country artists such as George Jones and Randy Travis, to popular rock, folk, and Motown acts of the '60s, '70s, and '80s. As an adult, he found his way back to Georgia to settle down not far from his birthplace. In his mid-20s, Michael began playing local clubs throughout South Georgia. Persistency and hard work enabled Michael to record his first studio demo in 2000.
Some months later, Michael took the advice of a record executive, and set out for Nashville, TN. In no time at all, Michael began to record the earliest tracks his debut album, "After the Storm", which was released July 2001. Michael jumped right into promoting his music heavily with television, radio, print, and most importantly, a top-notch live show.
Over the past few years the Michael Stacey Band has traveled the U.S. performing at various venues and sharing the stage with such popular acts as Diamond Rio, Brad Paisley, Wynonna, Neal McCoy, and Lonestar, just to name a few. The Michael Stacey Band even opened for Michael's childhood hero, George Jones.
Michael sums it up by saying, "It's a blessing to entertain for a living. I appreciate my family's support and all of the folks who take the time to stop and listen to the music."
The John King Band was formed in November 2010 in Athens, Georgia. Since the age of 15, singer/songwriter John King (23) had a dream of blending the stylistic qualities of Southern Rock and Country. After years of sweat and
At the age of 15, King formed his first successful rock band. As King put it, “I realized my voice and my songs were just too Country for Rock. It doesn't take away from the fact I love that music.. this is just who I am.”
For the past year, The John King Band has taken the South by storm - performing with country acts such as, Brantley Gilbert, Diamond Rio, and Jerrod Niemann. In 2011, The John King Band had their first big break through when they decided to enter The National College Battle of the Bands. After beating out thousands of bands in the Southeast division of the competition, the guys went on to L.A. to compete in the final five.
As King states, “Since the battle, we have been hitting on all cylinders. We’ve gotten offers to play shows all around the Southeast and we are really seeing a huge increase in our fan base.. it’s a really exciting time.”
King has surrounded himself with one of the most talented young bands in the Southeast. Andrew King (18), King’s younger brother, is one of the most gifted drummers to come out of Georgia in years. Along with bassist Matt Garrison (21), JKB is grounded with a concrete rhythm section. Guitarists Parker Smith (22) and Joe Higgins (23) sport a brilliant double-lead harmony, digging up a sound that has been dormant since the glory days of Lynard Skynard and The Allman Brothers. If blazing twin lead guitar is not enough to catch your attention, the songs will.
In a March 2011 interview, King said, “We put a lot of effort into our songwriting, that’s our number one priority.” With a unique mix of Southern Rock and Country that is guaranteed to keep the crowd on the dance floor... this is a band you won’t regret seeing!
