Road to Roo Semi-Finals at Smith’s Olde Bar – Round II

The second semi-final round on the Road to Roo took place at Smith’s Olde Bar in Atlanta.  Miller Lite and Alt 105.7 radio station brought The Howling Tongues, Misty Eyed, Sunny South Blues Band and Kaya’s Embrace to the stage to compete for a chance to perform at Bonnaroo.   Sixteen bands competed, earlier this year, in the quarter finals with eight bands moving on to the semi-finals

The Bands…

Misty Eyed is an alternative rock band from North Atlanta, GA with influences of new and old.

Kaya’s Embrace combines an energetic mix of reggae and power rock.

The Sunny South Blues Band is raucous blend of blues, soul and a little old fashioned rock n’ roll.

The Howling Tongues is on a mission to bring back the roots of rock’n’roll with loud guitar amps, giant kick drums, fuzzy bass tones, over-driven organ, and raspy vocals. Their sound is heavily influenced by classic garage rock bands.

The Winners Are…

The two bands that moved on to the city finals were The Howling Tongues and Sunny South Blues Band.  The Howling Tongues and Sunny South Blues Band will move onto the Road to Roo City finals on March 12th  at the Atlanta Sport and Social Club.  These bands will compete against Chelsea Shag and Camera Box to move on to the State Finals to represent Atlanta on April 28th at the Atlanta Sport and Social Club.  Doors for each show are at 7PM and the first band hits the stage at 8PM.
