The Bands of GABBAfest ’03
Lee Roy Parnell is among the elite few who can be identified as a triple threat: an ace guitarist as well as a distinctive singer and hit songwriter. Parnell has garnered the respect of fans and industry veterans alike with his soulful vocals and award-winning slide guitar playing. His music runs the gamut of diversity: blue-eyed soul, Delta blues, road house rock, Southern boogie, Texas swing, and gospel defying conventional classification. He draws from a broad range of music sources and combines them with seamless dexterity. GABBA welcomes Lee Roy Parnell as our headlining artist for GABBAfest ’03 on Friday night, October 10.
Tim Brooks is a local Macon guitar legend and has achieved a mass following of awestruck fans throughout the United States and after a sold out tour of Europe last year, the world. Tim was awarded the Grand Prize winner in Guitar Player Magazine’s 25th anniversary Ultimate Guitar Competition. He not only won the slide guitar category but his entry so impressed the judges that he also won the Grand Prize out of thousands of worldwide entrants. He was flown out to San Fran to participate in the Ultimate Guitar Concert sharing the bill with Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, Steve Morse, John Lee Hooker, Ry Cooder, Adrian Belew, Harvey Mandel and Gregg Allman, with whom Tim joined in a rousing rendition of “One Way Out”. Tim has paid his dues for over thirty years now, playing with various members of the Allman Brothers Band and other Capricorn Studio recording stars. He has opened shows for Muddy Waters, Steve Morse, Roy Rogers and Tinsley Ellis. Tim’s appreciation for Allman Brothers music has never waned and he can play their music like no one else. Tim has performed and attended many past GABBAfests and we are proud and extremely pleased to welcome him and the band Breau Jam back for GABBAfest ’03.
