Packway Handle Band – Gala Dinner Entertainment at RTCUSA
One consistent refrain from last year’s attendees, those who didn’t hang around to attend the Gala Dinner, was that they didn’t realize how Gala it was. Don’t miss out this year, register and make sure you get your spot on the dance floor.
Georgia’s finest – The Packway Handle Band has signed on to perform after the Gala Dinner at RTC in Stone Mountain, GA. If the weather holds up we’re planning on having dessert and drinks on the expansive back deck behind the resort that overlooks the tree-lined lake.
Packway Handle have been working together over the last decade and traveled around the world. For example, the above video was shot in Scotland as part of a BBC documentary. They’re mostly located in and around Athens, GA – home of some other well known musical greats.
They typically perform a wide range of songs – from traditional bluegrass (links here and here) to modern covers from the likes Woody Guthrie, Lou Reed, Violent Femmes, and even Madonna (links here and here). And they’ve won numerous awards in the process.
Thanks to Phil Read for putting this together on the Arch | Tech blog early this year (February 2012).
