What an awesome time AWB had performing for the nuptials of Frank and Lindsey Christian at The Cloister, Sea Island, GA.  Russell and I made the drive down Friday morning and performed an acoustic duo at the rehearsal dinner at Gnat’s Landing for the wedding party, Frank, Lindsey, and their families.  We took requests all night with everyone merrily singing along late into the night, Garth Brooks, Toby Keith, Luke Bryan, the Eagles, they loved their country and classic rock and we loved giving it to them!

On Saturday, AWB united as our highly talented five piece took the stage, Nate Sexton (Electric Guitar, Vocals), Seth Watters (Bass, Vocals), Travis Jones (Drums, Vocals), Russell McLaughlin (Keys, Vocals), and John Thrasher (Guitar, Vocals).  From the first chord struck, this crew was ready to party!  Here was the setlist for the evening.
