Kenny George Band with Finnegan Bell - The Evening Muse - Charlotte

Kenny George BandMusic’s elders and icons established the initial template for Rock ‘n’ Roll, but it’s the newer generation that keeps it thriving and moving forward. So credit the Kenny George Band for doing exactly that. Comprised of Kenny George (lead guitar, vocals, songwriter), Randy Borawski (drums, harmony vocals), Center Ely (steel guitar), Brooks Andrews (bass) and Scott Rankin (rhythm guitar, harmony vocals), this hardworking ensemble has earned their stripes the hard way. Performing an average of 150 to 180 shows per year throughout the heartland, they bring their music to the masses one gig at a time.“Our goal has always been to connect with our audiences,” George insists. “Our music is honest and organic, and we deliberately avoid pretense. We may seem like a ragtag bunch, but there’s a passion, purpose and sincerity that underscores everything we do, and hopefully that’s apparent even the first time you hear us play.”Hailing from Aiken, South Carolina, the Kenny George Band has created an indelible impression with fans throughout the Southeast and Midwest, playing 250 concerts in the last two years alone. They’ve traveled the highways and byways between North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Missouri, reconnecting with their fervent followers and picking up new fans along the way.*************Finnegan BellFinnegan Bell has been making music together out of the Southeast since Shane Williams and Warren Bazemore started writing together in the dorms of The University of South Carolina in the mid 90's. Prior to signing with Sony/BMG/Essential records Williams and Bazemore sold over 70,000 copies of their independent records leading 17 Magazine to dub them, "one of the most popular independent bands in the Southeast." Since leaving Nashville and their record deal behind, Williams and Bazemore have relocated to the coast of South Carolina and rebranded under the name Finnegan Bell. The goal today remains the same as it has always been: meaningful songwriting and engaging live shows that make listeners feel as if they have been invited into someone's living room. With a blend of americana, folk, rock and roll and gospel influences Finnegan Bell offers a sound that is unique and rooted in the landscape of the region they grew up in and call home. Williams and Bazemore have shared the stage over the years with a wide range of artists including: Nickel Creek, Members of Allison Krauss and Union Station, Jars of Clay, Leigh Nash, Caedmon's Call, Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, Members of Hootie and the Blowfish, Danielle Howle and many other great national and regional artists.
