The Randall Bramblett Band, along with special guests Blackberry Possum, will be performing an outdoor Sundilla concert on Thursday, July 12. The location is Pebble Hill, about a half-block from the regular Sundilla venue. Blackberry Possum will take the stage at 7:00 for an opening set, to be immediately followed by The Randall Bramblett Band. Advance tickets are just $15 and can be found at Spicer's Music, Blooming Colors, World Cup Coffee, and online at sundillamusic.com; admission at the gate will be $20.

There will be free coffee, tea, water and food, and attendees are welcome to bring whatever food or beverage they prefer (but NO GLASS, please!) Some folding chairs will be available, but it is suggested that you bring a chair IF you have one. (Those collapsible tailgate chairs are perfect for this sort of thing.)

It has become one of the better Sundilla traditions: every other year Randall Bramblett comes to town, packs the AUUF, puts on one of the best concerts anyone will see anywhere, sells a bunch of CDs, and sends everyone home happy and humming. But now we get to take it one step further, with the addition of the entire Randall Bramblett band! Realistically, Randall Bramblett is too big and successful to play Sundilla. Fortunately for us, there are many incarnations of Randall. The guy who was a major part of the seminal jazz-rock group Sea Level is too big for Sundilla. The guy who tours and records with The Allman Brothers, Traffic, Levon Helm, Elvin Bishop, Steve Winwood, Govt. Mule, Widespread Panic and so on is too big for Sundilla. The guy who brings his guitar, keyboard and harmonica into small intimate venues and blows the audience away is PERFECT for Sundilla. And when that guy brings along the rest of the band, it becomes a show that is perfect for the spacious outdoor setting at Pebble Hill. So how can a guy THAT successful and THAT renowned be perfect for an intimate venue like Sundilla, as well as for those bigger venues? Because of the music, the songs. Rolling Stone calls Bramblett “One of the South’s most lyrical and literate songwriters.” Bill Berry of REM says “Randall is the most talented and prolific songwriter I have the privilege of knowing.” Chuck Leavell of The Rolling Stones and The Allman Brothers believes “Randall is the most gifted & talented southern singer-songwriter musicians of the past several decades.” And Hittin’ the Note puts it succinctly: “Randall Bramblett is the William Faulkner of Southern music.” Randall Bramblett is one of those performers that single-handedly destroys the misconception that outstanding, nationally-revered musicians don’t come to Auburn, and don’t play Sundilla. If you have friends who have refused to check out what we do at Sundilla, THIS is the concert you want to drag them to. They want you to drag them to it, too, they just don’t know it yet. That is true even when he’s playing solo; add the rest of the band, and the incorrect assumption that Sundilla is just a bunch of people listening to soft tunes is obliterated.

The Randall Bramblett Band, with special guests Blackberry Possum, will be appearing at Sundilla on Thursday, July 12; showtime at Pebble Hill is 7:00. Admission at the door will be $20, but $15 tickets are available at Spicer’s Music, Blooming Colors, World Cup Coffee, and online at www.sundillamusic.com. We’ll have free coffee, tea, water and food, though as always attendees are welcome to bring whatever food or beverage they prefer (but leave the glass at home, please!) Folding chairs will be available, but if you have a comfortable chair of your own, please bring it.
