Summer Solstice Party at The Big House

Summer Solstice Party at the Big House

MACON, Ga. – June 15, 2015 – Freddy’s Finest is back at the Big House with Copious Jones for the Summer Solstice Party on June 20. Doors open at 6p.m. and music will begin at 7p.m.

Playing together since 2011, Freddy’s Finest is composed of individuals not only talented as a group, but who are all accomplished musicians in their own right-working together to produce a sound that “combines the groove of classic soul with the energy of modern funk with a heavy blues undertone” according to their website.

While a mainly original band, they also cover classic hits from bands such as the Beatles, Otis Redding and James Brown.

Accompanying them is Copious Jones, who describes their sound as “something akin to Dave Matthews meets Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead.”

The band was even part of the 2014 Mountain Jam Music Festival in Hunter Mountain, New York-the lineup of which included none other than the Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule, and the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

The concert will take place at the Big House, otherwise known as the Allman Brothers Band Museum, on Vineville Avenue. Since it housed the band and many of their friends and roadies in the 1970s, the home continues to be a hub for music and artists to collaborate with one another and the surrounding community.

Whether you’re looking for something fun to do with the kids, have been meaning to check out the Big House and haven’t yet, or simply want to explore Macon’s music scene, Freddy’s Finest and Copious Jones are sure not to disappoint.

Tickets are available prior to the show for $10 and the day of the show for $15.

The Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House is the #1 most visited tourist destination in Macon by Trip Advisor with patrons coming from around the world annually. The house, now a museum and venue space, was once the place where members of the Allman Brothers Band, their families, friends and roadies lived, worked and played from 1970 to 1973. The house is not only a museum, but also an experience showing what the house looked and felt like when the band lived here. The incredible collection of ABB memorabilia and artifacts is the most extensive in the world.
