The Black Jacket Symphony Presents Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers “Damn the Torpedoes”

It isn’t often that an artist has a wide-ranging impact on a large, diverse portion of music lovers. Whether he was the reason for picking up a guitar or simply a musical influence, if you ask anyone who has played with The Black Jacket Symphony over the last 9 years, odds are high that Tom Petty had an impact on their musical career. We were all saddened to learn of his passing, especially at the young age of 66. He left a catalog that will live on for generations, and for that we are grateful. Music is the ultimate healer, so when we lose one of our heroes we only know one way to ease the pain. Join us for a special celebration of life as we recreate Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ “Damn the Torpedoes” live at The Grand Opera House.

Jonny Lang with very special guest Doyle Bramhall II

Since the release of his debut album, Grammy Award winning Jonny Lang has built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation. The path Lang has been on has brought him the opportunity to support or perform with some of the most respected legends in music. He has shared the stage with everyone from The Rolling Stones, B.B. King, Aerosmith and Buddy Guy, who he continues to tour with today. Fans who discovered Jonny Lang through his searing instrumental work will revel in the huge guitar tones and go for broke solos on Signs, while those who have appreciated his growth as an honest and passionate songwriter will find that honesty and passion unabated. Though he long ago left blues purism behind, Lang has never abandoned its spirit of universal catharsis through the relating of personal trials. Signs reaffirms his commitment to the blues and the guitar without sacrificing the modern approach that has made him such a singular artist. Doyle Bramhall II joins Jonny as his very special guest opener - making this a red-hot evening of blues and roots music you won't want to miss!

The Devon Allman Project with special guest Duane Betts

Hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since we lost our good friend Gregg Allman.  Fortunately, The Grand was just offered the chance to secure a date with Gregg’s son, who has been touring all year with Duane Betts, the son of Dickie Betts, as his guest performer.  How could we say no?  Come to The Grand to celebrate a different part of the Allman legacy, even as we also remember Gregg and how much he meant to all of us here.  The Devon Allman Project, with special guest Duane Betts, serves up that great Southern rock 21st Century-style, and certainly since it’s his first headlining gig at his father’s favorite Macon venue, it’s going to make for a very special night. Make an Allmans weekend of it in Macon!  Make sure to visit The Allman Brothers Museum at the Big House, get a map of Allman sites around town (including Rose Hill Cemetery, College Street, and much more), have lunch at the famous H&H Restaurant, and catch all the fabulous Allmans music happening downtown.
