Hammondsport, NY Here We Come Again and Hooray!

If you’ve been fortunate enough to visit Point of the Bluff Vineyard, you understand exactly why we are so thrilled to return to this wonderful place. Overlooking Lake Keuka, in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes region, Point of the Bluff is a beautiful venue with stunning views. This would be the perfect place to begin a visit to the Finger Lakes region. Bring a taste for delicious wine and expect to be comforted by their luxurious accommodations while taking in breathtaking scenery.

This will be a show to remember not only because of the memorable venue and impeccable staff but we also get to hear The Guess Who. We’re fortunate to play with this great Canadian band every now and again. They put on an amazing show and all night long the hits just keep coming. This is an afternoon performance for us. So be sure to be there early. Music starts at 3:30!

Oh Canada!! And Whoa! Alabama!!!

We don’t have to break out our passports very often. Our last visit across the border into the great white north was several years ago and was exactly that, River Cree Resort and Casino in Edmonton during January. Brrrr! Obviously, we southern boys don’t tolerate the cold too well, especially those of us who dwell in the Deep South where temperatures in the 60’s require jackets. We won’t have to break out the parkas when we visit our Canadian neighbors this time around. We play in Toronto with Alabama at Scotiabank Arena, August 26. Yea!

We haven’t had the pleasure of performing with Alabama in a long long time and are thrilled to work again with one of the South’s most successful and quintessential bands. It was really sad hearing that Alabama’s founding member and legendary guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Jeff Cook lost his arduous battle with Parkinson’s disease last year. Following Jeff’s wishes and heeding the hopes of all their fans the guys are getting back out there playing some shows. It’s truly an honor that we get to share a stage with them.

Join us for what will surely be an amazing evening. Can you tell how excited we are about this one? And... Speaking of Alabama, who cut their teeth playing at a Myrtle Beach honky tonk bar, ARS will be playing the Alabama Theatre in Myrtle Beach, SC, September, 23. Awesome!

Rock-Tober-Fest 2023 ... Is Not To Be!

We are fortunate to have a fairly busy fall schedule ahead. Other than the fact that we don’t have a single show lined up for the entire month of October, so much for Rock-tober-fest 2023. We figure we should at least have a Halloween show. Spooky?!! C’mon y’all!

This fall we will be revisiting several of our favorite towns and venues. Look for us at The Deadwood Jam in the black hills of South Dakota, September 15. This is always a big BIG, fun FUN event. Please be kind enough to direct any of us you may find stumbling around the streets of Deadwood back to our hotel. We head back to the green hills of Rocky Mount, NC and The Harvester Performance Center. A wonderful little town full of nice folk and a truly great venue, it always feels like we are back home with friends when we get there.

November finds us again in Annapolis, MD at Ram’s Head on Stage. It’s a privilege to be invited back to this great venue in one of America’s most honored and historic old towns. Also, we will be teaming up with The Outlaws again at the legendary Medina Ballroom in Minnesota, November 18. Many cheese curds and a walleye sandwich or two will disappear that night for sure. We’ll see Henry and The Outlaws for another show at the Palace Theatre in western Pennsylvania. We had an absolute blast last year hanging with everybody up there in Greensburg. What a nice place and a beautiful theatre!

In November, we will also be performing at Appell Center in York, Pennsylvania, Count Basie Center in Red Bank, NJ and North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie IL. Don’t be afraid to suggest ARS to your favorite local venue. Who knows? They just might invite us to your town. We’d love to see you!

Remembering a Legend and Our Friend: Dean Daughtry

(September 8, 1946 - January 26, 2023)

We miss you, Ol’ Buddy !


"The Atlanta Rhythm Section : The Authorized History" - Is Now Available!

Seasoned, southern author, Willie G. Moseley, has written an in-depth book about The Atlanta Rhythm Section. Years of research and extensive interviews are infused into the first and only authorized history of the band. A native and current resident of Alabama, Mr. Moseley effortlessly weaves the story of a band whose roots are so close to his own.

Atlanta Rhythm Section’s background is a history lesson of the music scene in the South during the 60’s. Mr. Moseley details how Buddy Buie assembled a core group of incredibly talented southern musicians and developed the creative environment that enabled the ensemble to flourish and truly craft some amazing work. Buddy made real his dream of forming a super group to use as a vehicle for his songwriting skills, musical vision and business acumen. Mr. Buie’s efforts played out like an expertly conducted symphony and crescendo when Atlanta Rhythm Section’s mainstream success peaked in the late 70’s.

What goes up..., well, you can read the rest of that story too. Mr. Moseley’s book delves into the struggles that follow the band’s Top 40 success. He trails the band’s twists and turns throughout the new millennium up to the present day. Published by Schiffer Publishing and available through many online retailers, “The Atlanta Rhythm Section : The Authorized History” is Mr. Moseley’s thirteenth book. A senior writer of Vintage Guitar Magazine, he is News Editor emeritus for The Tallassee Tribune.

A.R.S. Releases 2-Disc CD: "One From the Vaults"

Often described as a more radio-friendly version of Lynyrd Skynyrd or the Allman Brothers, the Atlanta Rhythm Section was one of many Southern Rock bands to hit the upper reaches of the charts during the late `70s. Hailing from the small town of Doraville, Georgia, the beginning of the Atlanta Rhythm Section can be traced back to 1970. It was then that a local recording studio was opened, Studio One, and the remnants of two groups (the Candymen and the Classics Four), became the studio's house band. One of the facility's head figures, Buddy Buie, soon began assembling the session band. After playing on several artists' recordings, it was decided to take the band a step further and make the group of players a real band, leading to the formation of the Atlanta Rhythm Section. This collection contains 10 tracks previously unavailable on compact disc.
