Huntsville, AL (PRUnderground) January 27th, 2020
There’s no doubt that Huntsville, Alabama-based band Caldonia are doing something very special. The seven piece fuse soul and blues in a way that brings classic influences together with creative style, and a modern musical approach.
In exciting news, Caldonia recently announced they have been invited to play at one of the South’s most historic music landmarks – Mercer Music at Capricorn, formerly known as Capricorn Sound Studios, in Macon, Georgia. This will be part of the very popular “First Friday” ongoing concert series. Enthusiasm surrounding the announcement is already high and rising.
While Capricorn is arguably most known for being the spot where The Allman Brothers recorded many memorable hits, a recent reopening gig sold out completely, with over 2,000 happy fans present. Of those, were a mix of new and old stars, including Taj Mahal, Bonnie Bramlett, Jaimoe, Jimmy Hall, John Bell, Tommy Talton, Randall Bramblett, Paul Hornsby, Marcus King, Bonnie Bishop, Charlie Starr, and Duane Betts.
Caldonia stands out both for their high-energy, charisma soaked live performances, and smoothly focused studio work. 2019 saw the band release their debut EP “…is Hurtin’ for You” where dance-able rhythms combined with polished vocals, delivering soulful R&B of the highest caliber.
“This is a great opportunity and an honor, honestly” commented Keyton, vocalist for Caldonia. “We are going to give our all, as always, and expect it to be a remarkable experience.”
Clearly the Caldonia performance at Capricorn is not to be missed.
The band can be contacted at PO Box 727, Jacksonville, AL 36265.

If you like greasy horns and Motown-influenced melodies, Caldonia (pronounced Kal-dōn-yuh) has got something signed, sealed, delivered just for you. This seven-piece band was born in small town Alabama, where revival tents and liquor stores both testify their own truths about the deep south. While saxophone and trumpet stand out on the newest bluesy “rock and soul” release Taxi, the group offers a fresh outlook on vintage music with powerful vocals layered over soulful, driving rhythms sure to get you shakin\\’ and movin\\’ lickety split.
