  8. Tinsley Ellis live in concert with Frank Bang and The Secret Stash!

    March 21, 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM @ The Hemmens Main Stage

    Southern blues-rocker Tinsley Ellis may speak no evil, but he sings & plays with the conviction of “...a man possessed” – Billboard. Over the course of 1 album & literally thousands of live performances, Ellis easily ranks as one of today’s most electrifying blues-rock guitarists & vocalists. He approaches his music with rock power & blues feeling, in the same tradition as Duane Allman, Freddie King, Derek Trucks & Warren Haynes. Atlanta Magazine declared Ellis “the most significant blues artist to emerge from Atlanta since Blind Willie McTell.” Since first hitting the national scene in ‘88, Ellis has toured non-stop while releasing one critically acclaimed album after another. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution calls his music “a potent, amazing trip through electric blues-rock.” Rolling Stone says he plays “feral blues guitar...non-stop gigging has sharpened his six-string to a razor’s edge...his eloquence dazzles... achieves pyrotechnics that rival early Jeff Beck & Eric Clapton.”
