1. The Georgia band, Kinchafoonee Cowboys will be playing at the Melting Point Friday night at 9:00. The group originates from the Albany, GA area but joined the Athens live music scene while several members were in college. Of their four studio albums, three were recorded in Athens -- the last was live at the Georgia Theatre in 2005. Over the past several years, the south Georgia band has shared billing with entertainers such as Alabama, John Anderson, Trisha Yearwood, Diamond Rio, Tracy Lawrence, Martina McBride, Widespread Panic, Blues Traveler, Dave Matthews Band, and many others. Don't miss what's sure to be a standing-room only show this Friday!
