Contributed by Sundilla
The Randall Bramblett Band, along with special guests Geezer, will be performing an outdoor Sundilla concert on Friday, April 22. The location is Pebble Hill, 101 S. Debardeleben in Auburn. Geezer, featuring the legendary Wildman Steve, will take the stage at 7 p.m. for an opening set, to be immediately followed by The Randall Bramblett Band. Advance tickets are just $20 and can be found at Spicer’s Music, Ross House Coffee and online at sundillamusic.com; admission at the gate will be $25. There will be free coffee, tea and water, and The Chill Spot will be on hand selling hot dogs, tacos and frozen treats. Attendees are welcome to bring whatever food or beverage they prefer (But no glass, please.). Some folding chairs will be available, but it is suggested that you bring a chair if you have one. (Collapsible tailgate chairs are perfect for this sort of thing.)
“Randall Bramblett at Sundilla has become an every-other-year tradition” said Sundilla organizer Bailey Jones. “But those were always solo shows. A few years ago we had the opportunity to book Randall and his band, and was no way we could turn it down. Randall playing solo acoustic is a wonderful thing to experience, but the full band experience — electric guitar, drums, keyboards and even Randall on saxophone — was so good that we knew we’d be doing it again.
“And adding Geezer to the bill adds another level of excitement; every band that Wildman Steve has been in, such as Blackberry Possum and The Bibb City Ramblers, has always been great, so we’re excited to introduce people to Geezer.”
Bramblett hasn’t been around forever; it only seems that way. In addition to his solo work and his shows with his band, he also was a major part of the seminal jazz-rock group Sea Level, has toured and recorded with The Allman Brothers, Traffic, Levon Helm, Elvin Bishop, Steve Winwood, Govt. Mule, Widespread Panic and more.
Rolling Stone calls Bramblett “One of the South’s most lyrical and literate songwriters.”
“Randall is the most talented and prolific songwriter I have the privilege of knowing,” said Bill Berry of REM.
“Randall is the most gifted and talented southern singer-songwriter musicians of the past several decades,”
Said Chuck Leavell of The Rolling Stones and The Allman Brothers.
And Hittin’ the Note puts it succinctly: “Randall Bramblett is the William Faulkner of Southern music.”
