Morgan's Road is back with a hit!!





Morgan’s Road is a funk-infused jam band representing the best of South Carolina's sultry rock sound. Featuring frontman Ben Woodruff, master-class guitarist Cameron Allen, bassist Matt Chmielecki, drummer/vocalist Tyler Perry, Justin Banks on keyboards and percussion and Jeff Springs on lap steel and electric. The members of Morgan's Road are noted for their outstanding musicianship and camaraderie in sharing stage with other bands and special guests. 


Like many bands today, Morgan’s Road is a collaborative effort between artists who wear varied professional hats to maintain their momentum. In spite of this, they share a passion for all things related to music and an all-hands-on-deck mentality for establishing the band’s presence on the jam band circuit. 



Ben, Tyler, Cameron, Justin, Matt and Jeff have decades of collective performing experience, each with past engagements and bands throughout the Southeast. From jam band and beach music to straight-ahead jazz, bebop, Southern rock, fusion and progressive, this mix is evident in their sound. The band routinely gigs at local clubs, notable venues and regional festivals. Together and while working in other bands, they have opened for many well-established artists, including Bob Weir & RatDog, moe., Umphrey’s McGee, John Scofield, Steve Winwood, Hootie & the Blowfish, Sister Hazel, Kellie Pickler, Colt Ford, Lee Brice, The Marshall Tucker Band, Devon Allman and Lady Antebellum. 



The origins of the band were borne out of the passing of a longtime bandmate, bassist Chris Deaver, who was in the Kingstreet Band. In honor of their friend’s memory, Kingstreet and the Cameron Allen Trio came together as one band under the name Morgan’s Road. Soon after, Justin joined on having stepped down from the heavy tour circuit with the King Hippo band, and together, they bring an energy on stage that is palpable and a sound that resonates with fans whether they are playing to a crowd of a few hundred or over 23,000. 




In 2015, they debuted their first album, Topics of Love, and have received outstanding reviews and accolades from fans and critics alike. Topics of Love is available on iTunes, Amazon, SoundCloud, Rhapsody, Virgin Mobile, Spotify and Google Play Music.

Alla P. Gakuba's short stories are lengthy and full of information whether from historical periods to relate to current times. The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
