Headlining is local guitarist and singer/songwriter Daniel Hardin playing in his power trio, with electrifying rock and blues guitar playing reminiscent of John Mayer or Joe Bonamassa. Opening for him is Misnomer, a nine piece funky brass ensemble from Athens, Ga, with the tightest rhythm section you’ve ever heard. You will not want to miss this show.
Since the age of eight, Daniel Hardin has been passionately playing the guitar, with roots in a diverse range of acoustic and electric blues and rock.

Influenced by such artists as Joe Bonamassa, Gary Clark Jr., John Mayer and The Foo Fighters, he has brought a new musical perspective to songwriting, fusing tasteful melodies to irresistible grooves to form his unique spin on the blues and rock genre. All of this can be heard on his 2016 self-titled debut album, with highlights including the hook-driven acoustic tune, “Old Day”, the driving rock opener, “Take Me Home”, and the soulful B.B. King tribute, “3 O’clock blues”.

In addition, his 2017 single, “I’ll Be There”, shows a wildly different side of his musicality, combining groovy pop rhythms and catchy vocal harmonies to create a funky, reggae-influenced alt-rock track that stands out from the rest. Most recently, he released a six-song EP, titled “The Road Less Traveled”, that showcases six completely different sides of his songwriting ability. The first track, "Miles Around" is filled with slap guitar, slap bass, and a punchy rhythm section that drives the emotive vocals and lead guitar, while the fourth track, "So Easily" is a slower, fan favorite that explodes into incredibly dynamic choruses and melodic guitar solos.

Overall, this EP represents only the beginning of what is to come. By selling out multiple headlining shows at The Velvet Note in Alpharetta, Daniel Hardin is quickly becoming someone to look out for in the new rock and blues scene. more >>>
Misnomer (formerly Mister Tie Dye) is a nine-piece ensemble based out of Athens, Georgia.

It began as a collective of students from the University of Georgia channeling their influences from classical, hip-hop, funk, and jazz music into something original. The group is comprised of alto and tenor saxophone, two trumpets, tenor and bass trombone, keyboard and synthesizer, bass, and drums.

They perform a repertoire of music that spans several genres, influenced by artists and composers like OutKast, NO BS! Brass Band, musicians from GroundUp Music, and more. According to Flagpole Magazine, “[Misnomer’s] music is as exciting as it is uncategorizable. The nine-piece, horn-centric outfit blends jazz fusion, deep funk, instrumental hip hop, and modern classical to create an intoxicating sound that’s unlike anything else in town.”

Misnomer has enjoyed sharing the stage with several national-touring acts such as Turkuaz, CBDB, The Werks, and more. In February 2017, they released their EP, Mister Tie Dye, and in April 2018 they released their first full-length album, Neighborhood.

This album is composed of original songs and features Drí of Partials (Athens, GA) on the track “New World.” The diversity of their composers is apparent in Misnomer's music, elevating their sound beyond a single genre. The group incorporates the writing techniques of older big bands into modern genres of popular music. To call it jazz fusion or a jam band would be a misnomer. more >>>
