Atlas Road Crew

Practicing in a storage unit on Atlas Road, (hence the name) Atlas Road Crew has quickly begun molding, tweaking and perfecting its old-school rock 'n' roll sound, vibing off of each other as well as off vintage favorites like John Bonham, Gregg Allman and Warren Haynes with a little Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin tossed into the mix. Despite the sweltering heat that often stifles the small unit, the band plays on, stripping down the heavy technology in favor of the more guitar-driven, easy riding sound that seemed to come naturally. The group has already become a local favorite and has established a cult following in the city of Columbia, South Carolina. In one year, the group recorded with Grammy Award-winning artist Mark Bryan of Hootie & The Blowfish, successfully raised over $4,500 in a kickstarter campaign, and sold out Columbia's premier music hall over five times. The group consists of Taylor Nicholson (vocals) from Pawley’s Island, SC, Max Becker (bass) from Charleston, SC, Dave Beddingfield (guitar) from Charlotte, NC, Bryce James (piano) from Columbia, SC, and Patrick Drohan (drums) from Great Falls, VA. The guys are young, but damn do they have soul. [+]
