About the band: The Atkinsons meld roots, country, and rock music into their own style of rambling swing rock & roll. Heartfelt story-telling is at the core of the Atkinsons, and it is complemented with three-part harmonies layered over mandolin, fiddle, drums, bass and electric guitars. The band’s influences run the gamut from country, mountain, bluegrass, to straight-up rock and roll music, and the sound ends up being quite a musical stew.
Food & Drink
Food and drinks (including wine and beer) are available for purchase.
