Wandering Bard Meadery MAULDIN YOUTH THEATRE PRESENTS

directed by Tim St. Clair II

Tipsy Music Pub, 1237 Pendleton St. 9 p.m. | Free When guitarist Eric Weiler, bassist/vocalist Joe Jones, and drummer Tez Sherard – aka J-E-T – got together earlier this year, it took a while for them to schedule their first gig. The reason: as members of their own bands and projects, they couldn’t find the time. “It’s been extremely difficult with everybody being so busy,” Sherard says. “But it was something that we all gravitated towards so strongly that we didn’t want the idea to die. It was just a matter of figuring out a way to schedule some shows so we could start this fire.” The idea for the band started after Weiler and Sherard played a show together at Revel a few months back. “We started talking while we were packing up about getting a project together,” Weiler says. “Tez said that sounded good, but that we needed a bass player who could sing to be able to do it. And the next day I thought of Joe Jones.” As for the group’s sound, Weiler says it’s a grab bag, thanks to the players’ skill with different genres. “It’s a gumbo,” he says. “We’re mixing in blues, funk, and rock into our own special blend.” —Vincent Harris
