Jef Chandler Band at Downtown Alive on August 24th

You might know this cast of characters by another name, but coming up on Thursday, August 24, 2017, they are performing at Downtown Alive in Greenville under the moniker of Jef Chandler Band. Hope to have some special guests sitting in as well. Keep tuned. Come out and join us! Music goes from 5:45 till 8pm. It's ear candy, and there's beer and all of downtown Greenville's fine restaurants too! All good! See you there!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone! Here's a link to a song my friend Derek Bridges and I wrote a few years back. The Bad Popes recorded this at SitnSpin Studios this past year. Best Wishes in 2017!

Three upcoming shows at Gottrocks

Several shows coming up at Gottrocks. On Wednesdays, November 9 and December 7, The Electrolytes (featuring the real John Atkins, bassist extraordinaire Mark Dye, Charles Hedgepath, Kevin Heuer and myself) will be playing an eclectic mix of Grateful Dead, Talking Heads, Tom Petty, Stevie Wonder, and many more legendary artists, as well as some JC originals. Shows start at 8:30pm. No cover. 

On Friday, November 11, come out to Gottrocks prepared to dance, as The Bad Popes will be playing a co-bill with The Carousers. Lots of Western Swing and good times. Lots of musicians involved, so there's a $8 cover. Music goes from 9 till 1:30.

Hope to see some friends at these shows! Cheers!
