Randall Bramblett Band, The Lee Boys, Walter Parks, Sol Driven Train, Omingnome at A-Town Get Down – photos

Well I was incredibly impressed with just about everything at Saturday’s A-Town Get Down at the Morris Center here in Savannah. Organized by the arts and education oriented nonprofit Alex Townsend Memorial Foundation, the festival utilized multiple spaces in the old commercial complex, including a funky storage area around back that was dubbed Bishop’s Court.

I rode up on my bike a little before 7 p.m. and hung out for the rest of the evening. The sound was uniformly excellent, despite bleeding occasionally from one venue to another, and the bands were tremendous: the inspired Southern-influenced rock of the Randall Bramblett Band; the psychedelic rock of Savannah’s Omingonme: the blues, rock, and even storytelling of Swamp Cabbage’s Walter Parks and Jagoda; the jazz-infused energy of Sol Driven Train from Charleston; and finally the funk of The Lee Boys.

The lighting was a little inconsistent, with too much light on the audience in the main room and in the Bishop’s Court, but those were small obstacles and easy to overlook given the sheer quality of the performances. Here’s one shot of each of those five acts, with more after the jump:

    Thanks you all for covering our event, and taking the time to experience the variety of it all — and, truly, I had the same question about lighting. We realized it was the stage lighting itself being too much for the room. Thanks for making that point. Let us know if you have ideas for future shows — we are all eyes and ears. Thanks again.

      Yeah, the lighting got a little overwhelming in the main room, but it’s all good. What an amazing lineup and great job, Tom. Thanks.
