Tuesday lineup changing at Darwin’s
For several years Bill Sheffield has been hosting an acoustic jam at Darwin's on Tuesday nights and they have been a great way for talented Singer/Songwriters in the area to hone their performance skills.  Bill has decided that it is time to move on and Darwins and those of us who attended and participated in this jam will miss it very much. Thank you, Bill. In it's place, Darwin's has decided to spotlight some young up and comers and one of the most successful bluesman in Atlanta, winner of the International Blues Challenge Solo/Duo competition, and world wide sensation, Little G Weevil.  Landon Jordan will play on the first and fifth Tuesday, 4 Korners will play on the second Tuesday, Little G Weevil will play on the third Tuesday, and Cody Matlock will play on the fouth Tuesday of each month.  Please try to catch these incredible artists on Tuesday nights at Darwin's, it's an early start time, 8:30pm, so you can get to bed on time.
