The Bands

Shameless James

Shameless James is an Athens, GA-based Jam Band made up by bassist Zac Connely, drummer Dallas Wiggins and singer/guitarists Canon Tyler, and Mackenzie Brown. Their music is a fresh blend of the elements of Jam heavyweights like Grateful Dead and Phish with the honest songwriting of modern Alt. Country icons like Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers and Jason Isbell. Performing in and around Atlanta and Athens since late 2016, Shameless James has won recognition among local colleges by putting on unforgettable performances at parties and bars. Their live performances are loud, energetic, and loads of fun! 

Alex Quiroz – The Lyrical Ace

Lyrical Ace, or in short ‘Ace’ hails from Buford, GA and has always loved music. For over 5 years he has been making music that can relate to everyone. He has one released one album and his second, The Ace Project, will release on October 15 on all music platforms.

James Worsham

James Worsham is a singer/songwroter raised inPlano, Texas — now residing in the heart of Gerogia. “Too Far GOne”, hs self-produced debut 3-song EP, draws from infuences like Johnney Cash, Tom Petty, and Bob Dylan, while maintaining a fresh, modern folk/country sound. What it lacks in length, the songs more than make up for in depth and authenticity. Dealing with issues like abuse of power and manipulation through different perspectives, the tracks are almost sure to strike a chord with just about any listener.

Shine… Soar… Achieve!

Parker Killian Moore grew up in the Hamilton Mill/Dacula area, and attended school at Duncan Creek Elementary, Frank Osborne Middle, Mill Creek High School, and Gwinnett Tech. In 2017, Parker moved to Warner Robins, Georgia. On January 21, 2018, he was shot and killed during an armed robbery at his place of work in Warner Robins.

Our family is devastated, but we are trying to turn our tragedy into a positive by providing scholarships and other life-changing opportunities to help young people reach for their dreams. Our family has worked tirelessly for the past year to keep his light burning bright. We have established a 501c3 charitable organization: Parker Killian GIVES Moore — all donations are tax deductible.

Parker had an unmatched zest for life and never met a stranger. He loved hiking Little Mulberry Park and the North Georgia Mountains. He loved music and played the violin at Osborne Middle School. His friends say…’Parker’s light burned brighter than the rest.’
