Spatial Effects Performs At Royal Oaks In Dalton Saturday

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Spatial Effects will be performing at Royal Oaks on Saturday. Sponsored by the Bandy Heritage Center, during the performance the band will discuss the history of bluegrass music and the influences that have helped to shape this distinctive genre of American music. 

Review for Spatial Effect:

The unique musical fare of Spatial Effects sets them apart from traditional bluegrass bands. The recipe for their brand of bluegrass music includes several degrees in music, creativity, and a sometimes off the wall sense of humor. The band has performed at a variety of venues in the Southeast including Nightfall, Riverbend and the Alabama Chicken and Egg Festival. The group has opened for Mountain Heart, Claire Lynch, Goose Creek Symphony and the Lovell Sisters.  

There is no admission and the public is invited. The concert will begin at 2 p.m. Royal Oaks is at 1218 Broadrick Dr. in Dalton. For more information or directions call 706.275-8899 or visit the website http://www.hamiltonhealth.com/RoyalOaks
