Get started early at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom with Happy Hour! PBR and High Life are only $1 and wells are 2 for the price of 1. If Amanda is not enough to draw you there, you should come for Macon native an former frontman for The Liabilities, Aaron Irons. He's bringing is own particular take on outlaw country and murder ballads, but also be prepared for a foot stompin' good time. And if you make it out to see Aaron Irons, you'll also catch award winning DJ Roger Riddle celebrating his birthday. Buy him a shot!
Let's not forget the band of the hour, StoneRider.
After failing to take over the world with their rather unconvincing brand of metallic hardcore when they were called Fight Paris, Atlanta, GA, residents Matt Tanner (vocals/guitar), Neil Warren (guitar), Champ Champagne (bass), and Jason Krutzky (drums) became born-again Southern hard rockers under the more appropriate billing of Stone Rider. The quartet did hang onto their recording contract, however, which explains the release of their 2008 debut, Three Legs of Trouble, through hardcore haven Trustkill Records — despite its evident and unashamed stylistic debt to classic hard rock staples such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Blackfoot, and a pinch of influences from further afield like AC/DC, Nazareth, and Free.

The after party for the Bragg Jam Moonlight Miles 5K run will also be at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom, so if you see some thirsty runners, be nice and help them grab a beer! There will never be a night quite like this Saturday night at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom.
