Blues Beatles - Yesterday (Live) 2017

We are always looking for cool acts to share. These guys have been around since 2010 - they are a blues band and know how to use the sax and hammond organ! You'd never know they are from Brazil - take a listen to their Blues Version of "Yesterday!" Then dig around for some more! The Blues Beatles have an awesome blues vibe!!

[10/17/19]   We love hosting events at THE AMP and we love supporting local groups like the Alex City Schools Bands. Although we were looking forward to the annual Halloween Concert next week, we understand and appreciate why it has been cancelled. Please read the following posted by Dale Bloodworth, Director of Bands. We will continue to support them and look forward to the time that this concert will return to the AMP!!

Good morning ACS band family,

I am making the call to cancel this performance. This was my decision, and made in the best interest of the band. I do not take cancelling a performance lightly. There are many reasons.

ACMS had a performance dropped on them late in the calendar; they need to do that performance. We have had so much going on at the high school...World of Works, Dreams Meet Reality, ACS, PSAT, JLLM, field trips...practicing on the surface of the get the idea. These all stress our students time and ability to prepare, and excel. It's too much this year.

I don't want to push them beyond the breaking point. We are going to contest Saturday. That is our peak performance for the marching season. We have a great Christmas Concert planned, and are working on all that goes with the spring trip, too.

Save the date - October 29th - for the annual Halloween Concert featuring (Benjamin Russell High School Pride of Alexander City Bands) the Benjamin Russell High School Bands and the Alex City Middle School Bands. This is a FREE concert and is SO MUCH FUN! Grab the kids, wear a costume if you like, and join us on the Grassy Lawn. The fun starts as the sun goes down!!

Alex City Jazz Fest

So sad, the world has lost another great, talented musician! We will miss you Yonrico Scott!!!

Yonrico played the Alexander City Jazz Fest several times. Such a cool guy and an awesome touch, as not just a musician or a drummer, but a true artist! He will be greatly missed!!
