The Dunhams team up with Smiths Olde Bar for Daytime Series, Host Gomez in Living Room

Jeff and Maria Dunham, hosts of The Dunhams Radio Program, which airs on Sunday nights on WZGC Atlanta have announced that on February 7, they will host the first of what is sure to be many Dunhams In The Daytime events. This will be a collaboration between the hosts and one of the same citys most venerable venues, Smiths Olde Bar. We are very happy to work with a club that is as highly regarded as Smiths, Jeff comments. ‘We feel that this is a reward for our years of work in Atlanta scene. While there will still be a live band at the event every week, there will now be a 93 cent cover (most of these proceeds will go to The Upper Chattahoochee River Keeper), and the sets will no longer be broadcast live, but portions will air the following night as part of The Dunhams Radio Program. The Seth Yacovone Band will be the first featured band featured at Dunhams in the Daytime, and on February 14th Bluestring will provide the music, and many more acts will be announced in the next week or two

In other show news, the couple welcomed Gomez to their living room last weekend. The band gave a little taste of their forthcoming CD (slated for a May release) by performing a brand new tune called, Catch Me Up. They also performed Gomez standards, Revolution, and the title track from their In Your Gun CD. However, the nugget of the session came in the form of the first version of Rhythm and Blues Alibi since early in 2003. This was performed as a special request for Stella Dunham, the hosts’ nine year old daughter. Other upcoming Living Room Sessions include Mofro (to air February 8th), and a special visit from the Allman Brothers Band Tour Mystic, Kirk West, who threatens to bring great stories and tasty chestnuts (February 15th).
