Time to let a cat out of the bag.

GABBA is pleased to announce The Sonny Moorman Band will headline GABBAfest on Saturday night, October 27. Sonny is a Cincinnati, OH based blues guitar master who happens to be managed by former Allman Brothers Band road manager, Mr. Willie Perkins. If you have never seen or heard Sonny play, you are in for a treat! He has some NASTY slide chops. DIG IT!

I saw Sonny at the Dayton Blues fest a few years back. Great performer and guitarist. Puts on a hell of a show.

I've worked with Sonny some over the years through my good friend and mentor, Willie Perkins. Sonny is the real deal! I'm so happy we were able to secure him for GABBA Fest this year.

I saw Sonny open for Johnny Winter friday night in Charlotte and he was outstanding. BDOBs' comments are right on the money. Sonny performs with great enthusiasm and seems to be having a great time while doing so. The crowd loved him. He's also a real personable guy and sold quite a few CD's after the show. I bought his "More Live As Hell" CD and it hasn't come out of my CD player yet.

I look forward to seeing Sonny at GABBAFEST this year. I went last year for the first time with my good friend Rich (Brofan) and had a great time. I think I've about got the wife talked into going this year. Hopefully we can get Rich to meet us in Fort Mill for the trip to Macon. Also, thanks to BDOB, Bluedad, and the rest of the crew who did a great job last year!!!!

BTW - Johnny Winter was better than I've seen him in long time. He even stood for a couple of songs.

I at once was reminded of Rory.

"Although listeners can hear the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rory Gallagher, Lonnie Mack, and Peter Green in his music, any comparison does him no justice. Basically, Sonny sounds like Sonny, with a fat, creamy, and wonderful power blues resonance."

Brian D. Holland, Blues Revue Magazine

Hey GABBA folks! We've got some information about The GABBA Members Jam, which is always held the Saturday afternoon of GABBAfest weekend. This year, The GABBA Members Jam will be held at The Middle Georgia Raceway in Byron, GA, on Highway 41, which was the site of the Second Atlanta International Pop Festival back on July 3-5, 1970. Why there? Glad you asked! As you know, The Allman Brothers Band played the opening set of the festival on July 3rd and the closing set on July 5th. Many great bands, including Mountain, Grand Funk Railroad, Jimi Hendrix, Rare Earth and several others also played this historic event. GABBA, along with The Big House Museum, Hittin' The Note magazine, The Georgia Historical Society and The Byron Area Historical Society were recently involved in efforts to place a historical marker at the site. Hosting the GABBA Members Jam at the site where so many southern freaks and hippies congregated over so much great music 42 years ago just seemed to be the right thing to do. So, from 12:00PM to 4:00PM on Saturday, October 27, 2012, GABBA members will gather inside the track and play some great Allman Brothers Band and blues and boogie music. You must be a GABBA member to participate. An alternate venue, in case of rain, will be announced soon. As was done last year, Mystery Road band, our Friday night GABBAfest 2012 opening band, will facilitate and host the jam. Feel free to ask questions or post comments.

Sorry that I can't make it. More sorry that Randy won't either, as I knew he was planning on it.
