Music This Week April 13th through April 19th

Hey there,
I am pleased to announce Whisper Kiss will be performing at the 38th AHRF, filling the last open slot for music. That means the only way to play on stage is through the Battle of the Bands this Fri April 15th. Two winners will be chosen – Most Votes and Judges’ Pick. For more information contact: Susan Ledford
404-895-7153 or musichick3@yahoo.com .
Again I’m looking for a clone to do recordings. I’m really bummed one of my favorite bands, The Revivalists, is also that night. I’ll miss them as I’ll be at Wanee but would love to have someone record them. The same for Lera Lynn’s return to Athens and The Werks.
