BAINBRIDGE – Travis Chandler & Avery Country are featured at Opry Night at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Bainbridge Town Hall Theater.
Avery County is a new touring band of seasoned professional musicians playing in the style of pioneers like Charlie Moore, Red Allen, Buzz Busby, Walter Hensley and Dee Gunter and bringing back the entertainment factor in bluegrass music. And the spirit of Baltimore Bar room bluegrass where good women and better music was king. The band took its name from the 1978 title of a Charlie Moore album citing their strong influence from Charlie Moore.
The band felt it was important to point to the man that had a profound impact on all of the members in the group. They were raised on the diet of bluegrass. They are from the heart of bluegrass country, but they are young and energetic with a bit of a wild streak and wanting to take the real lonesome sound to a new and younger audience. Recently at an appearance on Broadway in Nashville, they were referred to as the “Ramones of bluegrass.”
