I found myself in a dark cave at the onset of life with but a fiddle and a bow. Needless to say I was confused at first; rausted from my uterine slumber to the sight of these alien tools was enough to confuse any beast. Instinct alone tutored me in the ways of putting hair to string. I soon discovered that two thick strings rested below my torso and could carry me much like the cave winds that sent my tunes bouncing across stone face walls. Emerging from the darkness I found an unabiding light from above calling itself The Dappled Grays. Upon this discovery, my voice shortly followed as the orb of Grays was needing something more than tunes to brighten their sphere. For years our glow was steady and as any natural light we all grew in our own ways. While radiating to the new I always harken back to the beginnings and never lose sight that voice and fiddle are two independent tools gracefully intertwined to make me. -Leah
WEISSHUND is a rock duo born from a raucous all-night, whiskey-fueled jam session in 2014. Rick Lollar (vocals, guitar) and Marlon Patton (drums and Moog bass pedals) focus on propulsive riffs and melodies, performing with the reckless abandon of a garage band.
Lollar and Patton, both seasoned performers, began playing music at a young age and later formally studied jazz. With WEISSHUND, they fuse that formal training and technicality with the raw, visceral power embodied by their earliest musical influences like John Bonham and Jimi Hendrix.
In addition to their work with WEISSHUND, the duo are also involved in the Atlanta music scene in a variety of other capacities — as writers, producers, session performers, and members of other touring acts, including: Jamison Ross, Lonnie Holley, Thayer Sarrano, Lera Lynn, Jim White, Larkin Poe, Leah Calvert, Delta Moon, Nelson Patton, and King Baby.
WEISSHUND recently finished recording their second EP, due out October 2017, at Studio G in Brooklyn. Whiskey was once again involved.
TYPES OF TICKETS
There are no bad views of our stage at The Vista, even if you are standing! Often these are the best tickets if you want to be up close and personal with your favorite artist. Be aware that holders of Standing Room - Main Floor tickets have not purchased a seat and are not guaranteed a seat. This means that for sold out shows, holders of these tickets will likely be standing. If you want to assure the exclusivity and comfort of a reserved table at a show that is likely to sell out, we recommend purchasing a Reserved Table. However, at most shows, we only allow up to half the tables to be saved as reserved and the remaining will be available for General Admission ticket holders. Any reserved tables not purchased will be available for General Admission.
Don’t like standing or bumping elbows, or maybe you want to take the worry out of fighting traffic to be early to get a table? Exclusivity may be for you! Reserved Table tickets provide ticket holders the option to have a table saved for you. When the doors open to our venue, your reserved table will be waiting for you. Please note, Reserved Table tickets must be purchased in groups of 4 or 6, as there are 4 or 6 seats per table.
Food menu and full bar service available. Outside food and drink may not be brought into the Vista Room.
Please call us at 404-321-5000 for any questions before the show.
