It’s no wonder I loved working on this issue, traveling to the Orvis Fly Fishing School at Pursell Farms in Alabama to push myself and breathe in the landscape and reflect on my blessings. I'm holding my first-ever bass caught with a boogle bug popper! We’re thrilled to introduce five men who live or work in our community who are making an important contribution through their work in and out of the office. Say hello when you see them and let us know if there are men in your world who are making a difference.

The studio utilizes state-ofthe-art technology such as computer-aided design and 3D printing to design and manufacture custom pieces in as little as seven days.

ARTICLE DENNIS MALCOLM BYRON PHOTOGRAPHY HEIDI GELDHAUSER, KAMIL LEE HEY GENTLEMEN! Want a cool spot to hang out, dine, grab a beer, or get a custom-made outfit? Our lifestyle writer Dennis Malcolm Byron aka beer expert Ale Sharpton scouted the scene to find some locations to recommend for you to indulge in, enjoy and treat yourself. When you're thinking about hanging out with the guys, consider reaching beyond the sports bars and six packs and check out these three favorites this month with your dad, your son or your best buds.

01. YEBO BEACH HAUS Thanks to Yebo and its South African-inspired fare complemented by a beach-theme, guys now have a sophisticated alternative to the beer-soaked bar. Book the sexy private dining room downstairs or have fun with everyone on the main floor. Yebo's unique concept transforms from ski to beach every year. Now, flavors of the beach town of Tulum, Mexico, bring Yucatan spices to the table. It’s hard to stand out in Atlanta’s crowded food scene, but Yebo successfully does it. YeboBeachHaus.com

The Orvis school provided me with a graduation certificate and my own stories that I’ll undoubtedly bore my non-fishing friends with very soon. When you go, book the lodge for a group of guys or a room at the country estate-styled Inn with three restaurants, a new pool deck overlooking the stunning golf course. FarmLinks is often rated Alabama’s No. 1 all-access golf course where the hilly cart paths are just as much fun as the challenging fairways designed by Hurdzan-Fry Environmental Golf Design.

WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE COLLABORATORS? I have worked for Clint Eastwood quite a bit and became friends with him over the years. Kenny G is also playing on my new record, Go Getta. I got to write and record with him at his house in Malibu, California. I READ THAT YOU DIDN’T START SINGING UNTIL LATER IN LIFE. WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO START SINGING WITH THE BAND? I didn’t start singing until I was about 26 years old. I was playing twice a week steady at a great Italian restaurant downtown and the manager told me that he liked the band, but we needed to hire a singer. My father’s a great piano player and singer so he taught me a few songs and we gave it a shot and it worked out.

“There is a very strong jazz scene here in Atlanta. It’s a very positive scene. There’s a lot of great players here that are from all around the country.”
