Southern Avenue
Memphis blues band Southern Avenue—which has a guitarist shredding something with a very similar growl to Keith Richards—recently dropped a bluesified cover of Genesis’ “That’s All” with gospel-esque backing vocals on certain verses that even a pissed off Phil Collins would greatly admire.

In recent years, the group has been a part of Epcot’s annual Food and Wine Festival, and we won’t be surprised if it earns another spot on the festival’s Eat To The Beat concert series later this year.

Guitarist-songwriter Zach Person, who recently played a fiery set Tampa's Hooch and Hive, opens the show.

Tickets to see Southern Avenue at Central Park Performing Arts Center in Largo on Saturday, Jan. 21 are still available and start at $14.50.
