Tyler Neal Band (Pre and Post Atlanta United FC match Show!!)

A song means many things to Tyler Neal. It’s a way to connect with the things and people that mean the most to him, a chance to exist in another world for a little while (be it another room or another planet), a journey inward to find his authentic self, and a journey outward to offer it to whoever might be receptive. He’s reaching out to others through music in the way Stevie Wonder, Derek Trucks, and John Coltrane have reached out to him. The Atlanta-based singer, songwriter and guitarist is coming off a two year stint in the last band Colonel Bruce Hampton ever led, and is now building his career, musical ethos, and first solo record around what he learned during that time: The ego is a lie, the moment is the truth, the true Tyler is the goal, and music is the way.

The Nick Johnson Band (Pre and Post the Atlanta United Match)

How does a kid leave a small New England town, a year out of high school, with absolutely no music industry connections, find his way to the heartbeat of the South and play guitar alongside some of its best-known musicians? Says Nick Johnson: “Never, ever think of failure as an option.”

The Massachusetts native came to Atlanta in 2007 and has performed with such musical masters as Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes and Oteil Burbridge of the Allman Brothers Band; Colonel Bruce HamptonJimmy Herring of Widespread Panic; Bonnie Raitt; Grant Green Jr.; and Yonrico Scott of the Derek Trucks Band, to name a few, all before his 26th birthday.

In Atlanta, Johnson fell under the wing of Hampton, who has a history of mentoring young musicians, and quickly gained a reputation as “the young guitar player to watch.” Today he’s a mainstay in the band of Randall Bramblett, the noted songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Athens.

Rafael Pereira Brazilian Funk (Pre and Post Game Concert)

Rafael Pereira, better known as Rafa, grew up in São Paulo, Brazil. He began studying drums and percussion at the age of 12, being inspired by the contagious sounds of Brazil’s street rhythms, parades and outdoor concerts. He had many opportunities growing up to study with a host of master percussionists such as Airto Moreira, Naná Vasconcelos, Guello, Marcos Suzano, Alex Acuña, Luis Conte and many others. He relocated to the United States following an exchange program in 2004 and went on to achieve his Bachelor’s degree in Jazz Drum Set at Georgia State University (GSU) in 2010. Since then his music continues to blend Brazilian traditional rhythms with Jazz and many other styles into a wide array of musical settings.


His relocation to Atlanta, Georgia also allowed him to broaden his studies into various types of World Music. He performs full-time with many local artists including Brazilian/Latin Jazz guitarist Sasha Lisnichuk, and Rua 6, who was voted Best Latin Band in the Atlanta area by USA Today. With a heavy recording schedule, Rafael has appeared on over 30 albums in the past seven years with artists such as Shawn Mullins, Toku (Sony), Khari Simmons, Julie Dexter and many more. In addition to being a studio percussionist and drummer Rafael has a growing portfolio as a record producer and engineer, including two albums for Sasha Lisnichuk, Rua 6, The New Aiyê Project, Latin pop artist Willie Ziavino and Samba songwriter Guilherme Lacerda.

The Cheap Ensemble (1st set before the AU match, 2nd set after the AU match)

5:30 PM17:30

The Cheap Ensemble (1st set before the AU match, 2nd set after the AU match)

Atlanta-based trio The Cheap Ensemble plays chamber jazz inspired by the Paul Motian Trio, and takes the inspiration for its name from Ronnie Scott's quote "I play very cheaply, but I don't play free." Drummer Dana Fitzsimons (who studied both music and law, and has continued to perform as much as possible while also practicing law) first encountered saxophonist Chris Otts at a local jam session; inquiries about possible guitarists all led to Patrick Arthur

"Poor Butterfly" is played as a languorous ballad: after a rubato opening with guitar and tenor saxophone, the drums enter for the song proper, and the solos continue with the same light touch. Otts' "Volkslied" is the first original. All of the players improvise around the theme, with the drums commenting as much as keeping time, an approach that definitely justifies the Paul Motiancomparison. The piece builds to an urgent climax, demonstrating that the music is not all pastel shades. 

Chick Corea's "Matrix" gets a deconstructive treatment, the fast bebop-flavored theme interspersed with rubato episodes. It was originally recorded on the trio album Now He Sings, Now He Sobs (Solid State, 1968—reissued by Blue Note), but it's an approach not unlike what Corea's group Circle from around the same period might have taken. Arthur contributes the reflective "Front," its rhythmic theme providing an interesting push and pull for the band to work against. 

The album closes with a contemporary cover, Bruce Hornsby's "Fortunate Son." It is included to celebrate Hornsby's hometown of Williamsburg, Virginia, where Fitzsimons also lived for 16 years, where he studied law and started drumming, and where his two children were born. It includes an extended coda, its gentle looped repetition providing a hypnotic conclusion to the program. 

Track Listing: 1. Ithaca; 2. Poor Butterfly; 3. Volkslied; 4. Pure Imagination; 5. Matrix; 6. Reflection; 7. Front; 8. Fortunate Son

Personnel: Patrick Arthur: guitar; Dana Fitzsimons: drums; Chris Otts: tenor saxophone
