Barbecue, Beer and Geeks! 

For the past few years we've been fortunate enough to be invited to perform at one or more of the annual events hosted by Atlanta Beer Festivals. That streak continues this year with The Geeks performing at three ABF events starting with Hogs & Hops this Saturday, April 11th at The Masquerade Music Park. Hogs & Hops was the first event we did with ABF back in May 2012 so we're pretty excited to have the chance to play it again this year! It's one of the few (if not only) ABF events for which the entry fee includes not just beer samples but also food tickets! There will be a large variety of food vendors there serving everything from desserts to of course BBQ! And let's not forget the great entertainment! This year The Geeks will be sharing the main stage with Sweet Auburn String Band alternating sets every 45mins to an hour or so. The Geeks kick things off just after the gates open at noon and will close the event with their final set!

Tickets are selling fast so get them while you can! Forecast looks pretty clear so should be a great day for bbq, beer and Geeks!!

Beauty and The Geeks 

A few weeks ago The Geeks made their first appearance at Joey's in Douglasville. Jessie Paige and her band The Village Idiots (a staple band @ Joey's) were in the house that night celebrating her birthday. We heard she had a pretty powerful voice so we invited her up to belt out a few and she certainly did not disappoint! In her Marvel superhero dress (that she designed herself btw) and Geek Chic spectacles, she graciously joined us on stage for three songs that really allowed her to show off those pipes. Starting with You Shook Me All Night Long, then Hit Me With Your Best Shot and ending with Sweet Child O' Mine, Jessie got the crowd goin and helped set the tone for the rest of the night! And with the self-made Marvel dress and Hulk Smash birthday cake, she's a genuine Geek, not just a poser! Pleasure having' you up Jessie! Hope you had a wonderful birthday. And feel free to drop in on any Geeks show when you can. We'd be more than happy to have you sit in again!

It's GEEK-tober!! 

Hey Geek fans! Fall is in full swing! Baseball playoffs have started, we're 5 weeks into football and hockey is finally here! (Yeah, I know. No one cares about hockey here in Atlanta.) After a couple months away from midtown, The Geeks are back for two shows in their stomping grounds. They'll kick things off Saturday at Ri Ra Irish Pub. So come out and get your Geek on!

The Geeks Return to Buckhead! 

Although Crescent Ave in Midtown has become their stomping ground, The Geeks can occasionally be seen and heard a little further north in the popular uptown district Buckhead.  It's been a little over two years since The Geeks played at Five Paces Inn, a staple in the Buckhead bar scene. This Saturday they'll be bringing their brand of party rock back to Sadie's Tavern, one of the three hot spots of the Five Paces Inn bar.  Come hang out and get your geek on with Atlanta's party rock heroes, The Geeks!!

Once You Go Geek...


When's the last time you heard any cover band start their second set with "Alright stop, collaborate and listen" and then proceed to break into a medley of Ice Ice Baby, Girl You Know It's True and U Can't Touch This? Those "guilty pleasure" songs are the foundation of each and every Geeks show. And when you see and hear The Geeks perform these classics, you can't help but jump, dance, sing, shout or all of the above. What started out as a local cover band dressing up for Halloween turned into the increasingly popular, highly in-demand, party rockin' entertainment outfit now known as The Geeks.
