Three Quarter Ale is an Atlanta-based acoustic band whose unique blend of folk-rock, traditional Celtic music, and 16th-century madrigals have enthralled a large and devoted fan base for more than ten years.
This dynamic trio combines tight vocal harmonies with harp, flute, guitar, ethnic percussion, and a distinctly theatrical performance style to electrify and enchant their audiences. Their three internationally-selling CDs have earned the band five-star accolades.
Performing in full period costume as Renaissance-era characters Ariana Pellayle, Rosemary Quench, and Wicked Pete Speakeasy, the band’s lively banter and keen comic timing are as much a part of their draw as their stellar musicianship.
Whether onstage at the enormous Dragon*Con sci-fi convention, in crowded pubs during Atlanta’s annual PiratePalooza event, as finalists on the Georgia Lottery’s All Access Music Search live TV special, at intimate weddings or coffeehouses, or at their own three-day performing arts festival AleCon, Three Quarter Ale delivers a masterful, engaging, truly
The Radio Rangers are an Atlanta-based Americana band. Their music is a mix of country, rock, folk and blues, telling stories from the American heartland. Melodic, rhythmic and energetic, the Radio Rangers appeal to young, old and anyone in between. The band is comprised of Dan Foster (vocals, guitar), Mark Ewald vocals, guitar), and Tom Molloy (percussion).
Dan Foster is the songwriter and leader of the band. A seasoned lead guitarist, his song writing led to the creation of The Radio Rangers in 2014. I try to write songs that people can emotionally connect with. Songs about love, heartbreak, growing up and railroads. The goal is to paint a picture with a good story and melody. It’s very special when people like what you have created. Dan grew up in Michigan (too cold), moved to Florida (too hot) and now lives in Atlanta in 1989. (just right).
Mark “the ear” Ewald is the musical director. Being friends for over 20 years, Dan says he has never known anyone who can arrange a song, moving in exactly the right direction the way Mark does. Mark’s nickname comes from his vocal harmony abilities but he is also a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, piano, mandolin, bass guitar, banjo, harmonica and drums. (not all at the same time) Mark is from Buffalo, New York and still loves hot-wings.
Tom Molloy is the drummer/percussionist for the group. Tom is the glue that holds everything together while adding that special energy to the songs. Tom’s sense of humor always keeps things loose making even the ordinary much more fun Tom grew up in Queens, New York which will become apparent when ou speak with him. (what accent?) Don’t make the mistake of telling him he looks like Rodney Dangerfield.
