Alex Guthrie

On the VIP Music Stage Saturday

Alex Guthrie is a singer-songwriter based in Atlanta. With the infusion of different genres such as soul, folk and rock, Guthrie brings audiences together through brilliant lyrics and an expressive voice.

Most recently, Guthrie has been noted as “the guy from the Jennifer Hudson commercial.” The now-infamous American Family Insurance commercial features him playing in Atlanta’s Woodruff Park when the Grammy Award-Winning singer and performer Jennifer Hudson surprises Guthrie and sings along to Bill Wither’s beloved “Lovely Day.” The commercial has played on national television and radio, resulting in new opportunities and heightened awareness for Alex Guthrie, his band and his music.

Guthrie and his band have performed events including Milwaukee’s Summerfest — which was also featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Music — as well as the 30A Songwriter’s Festival in Florida, Wire and Wood Songwriter Festival in Alpharetta, GA, Jammin’ Java Listening Room in Vienna, VA, the Elbo Room in Chicago, IL and Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, GA.

In the early stages of his career, Guthrie released his first album, Lessons Learned, and also scored the Atlanta Braves Band of the Year in 2014. In 2015, Guthrie and his band were awarded the Georgia Americana Artist of the Year — another astounding achievement bringing his music much-deserved attention and recognition. Within a short span of time, Guthrie was opening up for national touring artists including renowned BMLG Records recording Artist Drake White, RCA recording artist Bleachers, and famous Atlantic Records recording Artist Kelly Clarkson.

Singer-songwriter Alex Guthrie continues to impress and defy conventional expectations, making waves as he makes great music. A new album is currently being recorded and is expected to be released in Spring 2018.

The Ruby Reds Band

On the VIP Music Stage Sunday

The Ruby Reds Band was formed in 1966 as the house band for the Ruby Reds Warehouse on Ellis Street in downtown Atlanta. The band and the club were wildly popular, playing for opening day of the Braves' first season in Atlanta as well as the Falcons' inaugural season, both in 1966. Ruby Reds Warehouse was the first establishment to move to Underground Atlanta in 1969. The band has been in continuous operation for 52 years and has played thousands of events for nearly every corporate entity in the Southeast.

Since 2004 the second generation of musicians, Rocky Ball, Marty Martin and L.A. Tuten, have expanded the band's repertoire by adding bluegrass, country, Broadway, folk, blues, American Songbook and Americana to the Traditional Jazz style long associated with the group. The Ruby Reds have created a rich GUMBO of musical styles that appeal to audiences of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, and levels of sophistication. Come get'cha some!
