I travel to Atlanta on business with some frequency. I have a high school buddy who lives up there and is surrounded by some outstanding, like minded musicians, not to mention being one himself. I would suggest you check out any and all of the following bands:

Deep Blue Sun http://www.deepbluesun.com/
Copious Jones http://www.copiousjones.com/
Electric Cod Piece http://www.myspace.com/electriccodpiece

i know all of these bands well.... Critter has been a dear friend of mine since i was 15 years old, Donna is an amazing woman.. i love to see her play with Charlie Wooten, unfortunately they don't have a regular thing... but they are good enough friends that they do play together often. We will probably see eachother at a show... if we haven't already. there is a good blog that is put out every night in ATL with the best bands to see on a paticular night.. All these bands reguraly make the list...
Here is the list for today:
♫♪♫ WyldBill's Thursday Picks: Big Sam's Funky Nation @ Smiths Olde Bar / Nophest @ East Atlanta Village / Bill Sheffield @ Old Crow / Whiskey Belt @ Kathmandu / Breeze Kings @ Northside / Caroline Aiken, Donna Hopkins, Diane Durrett @ Eddies Attic / Chicken Shack @ Fat Matts / ♫♪♫ addition: Copius Jones @ Zuffys

Critter is great people. He's a real good player who just loves to play and is really willing to share and teach, and he knows his theory well.

Charlie Wooten is the name I was searching for. Amazing bass player.

John Marsh is the guy I met in high school years and used to jam with.

I always try to hook up with Critter and/or John when I go to Atlanta. We should try to hook up too.
