On November 6th, Athens-based band Tent City played a show at Buffalo’s Café in Statesboro, GA. This was the first time I had seen the band in over a year, and some changes had taken place. There was a new fast-fingered piano player, Jimmy Landry, and they added a saxophone player to the mix, which I must say, really added a great deal to the sound of the band as a whole. Majority of the songs they played were originals, many of which came from Jimmy Landry’s collection, one of my favorites being “Sexy Waitress.” The main cover that stood out was their jazzy jam rendition of the famous pop tune “Feelin’ Alright” by Joe Cocker. The lead guitarist, Greg Kearney, pretty much kept my attention the whole time. Kearney also plays with Betsy Franck, another Athens band, and he doesn’t use a guitar pick, but rather only his long trimmed fingernails. The band was on fire, and the audience was right there with them. They certainly know how to get a crowd going. Their bluesy-jams were funky and on-point. If you are a lover of jam bands, blues, or psychedelic rock, you should definitely check out Tent City. It is guaranteed to be a fun show with some great music.
