When a band is as exciting as Athens-based Family and Friends, I say get on the bandwagon early and see where you end up.
I was lucky to see Family and Friends at Bragg Jam in Macon over the summer, so I was especially anticipating their set on Saturday at Revival Fest. With great work on the soundboard by Capital A Productions, the ensemble’s exuberance and energy brought the old train yard to life and inspired listeners of all ages.
The EP embedded here gives a good idea of Family and Friends’ sound, obviously, but the live performances are really on another level, in part because of the sheer passion on display and in part because of the constant motion on stage. For once, I got decent shots of the drummer(s), but the bass player Tuna was another story. So check out the music below, check out Family and Friends’ online store, and give them a like on Facebook. And click on through — lots more photos after the jump.
