Tuesday June 8th 9:30pm: Gills & Wings
“Gills and Wings are not for everyone. One needs to appreciate the theatrics of a band like Queen, but not the schmaltz of someone like Meat Loaf. It’s a sound The Killers almost achieved before they veered wildly to the left. It’s Marlon Brando as a Broadway musical. It’s a helluva lot of fun…”
–Al Kaufman, Atlanta Music Guide
“Gills And Wings have a sound with enough Prog and Glam in it to be considered Retro but are fresh enough to fly fans of Modern Rock and Pop. You’ll hear Freddie Mercury comparisons regarding MLV, and they aren’t unfounded, but Reyes lays himself out in his voice in a way that is highly personal and rarely found in a vocalist who is simply mimicking another. Gills And Wings have a very bright future. The self-titled EP is a great start…”
Gills & Wings: “Rebirth of a Nation”

Wednesday June 9th 9:30pm: Fight The Big Bull
“An amalgamation of saxophones, trombones, trumpet, guitar, bass, and drums , Fight the Big Bull is a display of spontaneous emotion filled with powerful significance and baptized in the traditions of the music. They are a band with such a wide palate of emotions that your tin heart cannot escape being moved – a freaky gospel choir/dance band full of horns and love that you should never ever miss. They are also marvelous people who are very charming conversationalists and operate with the understanding that in a world flooded with production and marketing all people want is to hear the truth – Fight the Big Bull has a very big heart, too big to lie.”
