The Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House presents the annual Back Yard Boogie on Saturday, April 26. The concert will run from 7 to 1 pm with music from Gringo Grande and Boothill.
Admission for the event is $5 and chairs and blankets are welcome, although no outside food or beverages will be allowed.
Gringo Grande is a Macon-based, Southern rock band with a hint of folk and blues. The band features Alex Sanders (Drums), Ross Destree (Guitar), George Greer (Guitar - Vocals), Merle Arehart (Bass – Vocals), Randy Sanders (Harmonica) and Baxter James (Guitar – Vocals). Gringo Grande currently has an album named “Cross-Eyed in My Prime.”
Boot Hill is an eclectic collection of skilled musicians, playing aggressive country, classic rock, outlaw country, up-tempo southern covers, and original music. The band’s members played with the Abby Owens Band, Stoopgrass, Bad Vision, Barrell House Ballers, Fresh Heat, and the Eddie Kirkland Band. Their individual musical influences range from The Who to Wilco to Johnny Cash. All the differences in background have combined onstage to form a cohesive group of guys who enjoy playing for ramblers, drinkers and everyone who likes live music.
Proceeds from this event benefit the Allman Brothers Band at The Big House. For more information, see the website thebighousemuseum.org
