Atlanta Rhythm Section Heads to Nashville’s Music Valley.

Join us, Wayward Son along with Hippies & Cowboys for a night of rocking southern music at The Troubadour Nashville. Since 1995, this has been a central spot for fans of yesteryear’s Nashville. An intimate venue, the Troubadour steps aside the bombast of touristy Nashville supporting both classic acts as well as the finest up and coming artists.

Being invited to the American city with perhaps the richest southern music history is always a treat and an honor. We look forward to hanging with a couple great bands and the great music fans that really make Nashville what it is.

It may not be a traditional concert setting but this place sounds like FUN!

A great place for parties, we’re looking forward to our visit and having a southern boogie party of our own, July 13.

We are lovers of Virginia and we LOVE The Harvester Performance Center. Going to Rocky Mount, VA is a lot like going home to see old friends. We are truly delighted at thought of it and look forward to seeing y’all there, August 3. Speaking of great Virginia venues we look forward to heading back to, on August 2, we will be revisiting the stunning Beacon Theatre in Hopewell.

August 10, we visit one of our favorite places way north of the Mason-Dixon, Riviera Theatre in North Tonawanda, New York. The Riviera is a wonderful old theatre and the Buffalo-area live-music fans are some of the best anywhere in America. We look forward to seeing you again. And eating some more amazing Riviera popcorn! Thanks for having us back and thanks y’all for keeping The Riviera going!

We get to love Virginia and Orleans a little more on August 16 in Orkney Springs at The Shenandoah Valley Music Festival.

"The Atlanta Rhythm Section : The Authorized History" - Is Now Available!

Seasoned, southern author, Willie G. Moseley, has written an in-depth book about The Atlanta Rhythm Section. Years of research and extensive interviews are infused into the first and only authorized history of the band. A native and current resident of Alabama, Mr. Moseley effortlessly weaves the story of a band whose roots are so close to his own.

Atlanta Rhythm Section’s background is a history lesson of the music scene in the South during the 60’s. Mr. Moseley details how Buddy Buie assembled a core group of incredibly talented southern musicians and developed the creative environment that enabled the ensemble to flourish and truly craft some amazing work. Buddy made real his dream of forming a super group to use as a vehicle for his songwriting skills, musical vision and business acumen. Mr. Buie’s efforts played out like an expertly conducted symphony and crescendo when Atlanta Rhythm Section’s mainstream success peaked in the late 70’s.

What goes up..., well, you can read the rest of that story too. Mr. Moseley’s book delves into the struggles that follow the band’s Top 40 success. He trails the band’s twists and turns throughout the new millennium up to the present day. Published by Schiffer Publishing and available through many online retailers, “The Atlanta Rhythm Section : The Authorized History” is Mr. Moseley’s thirteenth book. A senior writer of Vintage Guitar Magazine, he is News Editor emeritus for The Tallassee Tribune.

A.R.S. Releases 2-Disc CD: "One From the Vaults"

Often described as a more radio-friendly version of Lynyrd Skynyrd or the Allman Brothers, the Atlanta Rhythm Section was one of many Southern Rock bands to hit the upper reaches of the charts during the late `70s. Hailing from the small town of Doraville, Georgia, the beginning of the Atlanta Rhythm Section can be traced back to 1970. It was then that a local recording studio was opened, Studio One, and the remnants of two groups (the Candymen and the Classics Four), became the studio's house band. One of the facility's head figures, Buddy Buie, soon began assembling the session band. After playing on several artists' recordings, it was decided to take the band a step further and make the group of players a real band, leading to the formation of the Atlanta Rhythm Section. This collection contains 10 tracks previously unavailable on compact disc.
