The Band of Desperate Men to perform Sat. at SNCA

By Staff
SAUTEE-NACOOCHEE - The Band of Desperate Men (BoDM) is set to perform Saturday at 8:00 at the Sautee-Nacoochee Community Association Theatre.

The Band of Desperate Men - Britt Dean, Doug Oster, and Clay Spurz - blend their voices in "pure and simple harmony" to sing their own original songs and vintage Americana classics. They love to sing in many styles mostly from the American roots rainbow of music: country, old-fashioned rock 'n' roll, bluegrass, folk, pop, doo-wop, and blues. They also venture outside the American stylebook with, for example, a ballad in Spanish and an a cappella doo-wop song in Chinese.

The current BoDM lineup spun off from Old Enough to Know Better in 2006 and haS been together ever since, performing at many area venues including Eddie's Attic, Java Monkey, Decatur Library Music Series, City of Decatur Blue Sky Concert Series, and the Graveyard Tavern. They have been the house band at the Downwind Restaurant and Lounge in Atlanta where they have been playing twice a month since 2007.
