Walk Thru Walls w/ Maryex live at The Hummingbird in Downtown Macon

June 30, 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 2:00 am

| $5

Walk Thru Walls is just as much an ideal as it is a band. A reminder to all; pass through what confines you. Let nothing hold you back or stand in your way.

Walk Thru Walls hope to instill that ideal into all people the way the Beatles, the Stones, David Bowie, The Kinks, The Who, and Led Zeppelin did in years past in England and the way Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and The Beach Boys did in America.

These bands influenced new generations of great bands such as The Smith’s, The Stone Roses, Blur, Oasis, Supergrass, My Bloody Valentine in the U.K. while bands like Devo, Nirvana, Soundgarden, STP, The Strokes, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club emerged in the U.S.

Now, as newer generations of artists come of age, many have expressed discontent over the future of rock ‘n’ roll. Walk Thru Walls has no intension of perpetuating this notion that well thought out and inspiring rock ‘n’ roll music has long ago seen it’s peak. On the contrary…

Johnny Ahearn, from Atlanta, GA, relocated to Macon, GA in search of those who held this ideal just as closely to their hearts. After being introduced to drummer Wes Cook by the wonderful SaVana Cameron of the band Atria, the events were set in motion to form Walk Thru Walls in Macon with bass player Casey Meadows and guitarist Daniel Walker. And rightly so…

Dirty, loud, melodic, spellbinding music on guitars, not computers, is what Walk Thru Walls is all about. Live performance of their original music is what they live for. The goal? Bringing it to the ears of the next generation of kids, who are in danger of falling for the flash, the gimmicks, the wardrobe malfunctions, and the lack of soul in music today, as well as to the ears of the older generations who ask themselves, “Whatever happened to my rock ‘n’ roll?”.
