Tommy Oakes: Dank Sinatra

I don’t know what they’re putting in the water over in Athens, Georgia, but man is it funky. As many of you may know, Athens is known for producing some great musical talents. To name a few: Drive-By Truckers, Corey Smith, Bubba Sparxxx (sorry, couldn’t resist), Mama’s Love, and most notably Widespread Panic. Well you can add one more to that list after the relatively young band (just a year old), Dank Sinatra, has made itself known. Starting out playing at local fraternity parties, this six-man band was quickly recognized and is already scheduled to play at the famous Georgia Theater. I was fortunate enough to see these guys at the KA house at the University of Georgia a few months back, and plan on seeing them again as soon as I get the chance. I encourage everyone to do the same as well. In the meantime, here's a track from their EP, "Papa Mountain." If you like what you hear you can download their most recent project, "Just Charlesin" for free, or name your price if you feel the need. Hope you enjoy, and of course, “crank the Dank.”
