Come Back Alice live at The Hummingbird in Downtown Macon
September 21 @ 10:00 pm - 2:00 am| $5
Come Back Alice is a genre defying Rock N Roll band from St. Petersburg, FL.
“Formed in 2012, Come Back Alice has a patently-unique sound that they’ve dubbed Southern Gypsy Funk, a blend of rock, soul, gypsy jazz and funk music, the flavors of which compliment each other like ingredients in a fine New Orleans gumbo. With improvisational influences and a love of bands known for killer live performances—including The Band, Dave Matthews, Tom Petty, and The Allman Brothers Band—even the biggest Come Back Alice fans don’t know what to expect from show to show from a band that has never repeated a set list.”
– Dennis Maley, The Bradenton Times
Fronted by multi-instrumentalist (and newly-weds) Tony Tyler and Dani Jaye, the connection witnessed onstage is impalpable. Switching between slide guitar, B3 organ, Violin, and keys, these two have a knack for captivating audiences with an electric stage presence one would come to expect from a truly organic Rock N Roll show.
A Georgia native, Tyler met Jaye shortly after moving to Florida to play with the late Dan Toler (Allman Brothers Band). The two stayed local for a short time, writing music and looking for players with dreams as big as their own. After meeting drummer Yral Morris in Sarasota, FL, they knew they had found the rhythmic core needed to take the sound to the next level. Morris, a Miami bred groove machine, honed his chops in the gospel churches of south Florida. With a style all his own, his dynamically powerful approach on drumming makes him a perfect fit the unique sound the band was looking for.
CBA released their self-titled debut album in 2015, recorded at award-winning Tree Sound Studios in Atlanta, GA. The album was accompanied by a critically acclaimed music video for their single ‘Coraline.” The music video took home the gold by winning Music Video of the Year at the Los Angeles Gorilla Film Festival, and was also nominated for an award at several other film festivals.
Having already performed in more than 10 states at some of the nations largest festivals and venues, Come Back Alice is taking the nation by storm. The band is currently in the process of producing their second studio album, set to be released in Summer 2018.
