Venues Of Note

The Earl

The Earl is a staple to the ATL music scene. If you are anything in music within ATL, you are playing the Earl. The staff and crew are wonderful to work with, and the sound is the best in Atlanta. We are having our debut album release party there two nights on September 13 and 14.

The Star Bar

The Star Bar will forever be where Ruby Velle And The Soulphonics grew their fans base and where we call home. We love this grimy but classic hole in the wall. They book the best bands and have great managers and talent buyers—and it’s a carefree environment that is all about the music. In 2009-2010 we did a six-month residency there as well as numerous single release parties. All the bands mentioned above have played with us at Star Bar, so the sense of community is strong. Viva Star Bar!

Many people think of this venue for giant festivals, such as Music Midtown and the Oyster And Crawfish Festival, but Park Tavern has hosted us for smaller performances, and they always have a built-in crowd. It’s a giant patio space, so it’s easily one of the best patios in ATL to play. The owners and staff are a breeze to work with, and let’s face it: The food is incredible. It’s always nice to get a discounted meal when we play. This is not considered a regular venue for live music in ATL, but I think that is changing as they are doing more live music shows and mini festivals.
