My friend Mike Veal puts on a great show, highly recommend.

The Summer Concert Series returns to Chamblee on May 6th as we welcome The Mike Veal Band! Join us for our first Saturday concert in downtown Chamblee during which we will also celebrate the Chamblee Charter High School Centennial.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy an evening of great music in Downtown Chamblee. The Mike Veal Band plays a hot combination of blues, rock, funk and fun! Diverse musical backgrounds and regional influences color each member's contribution to the tight sound for which the band is loved. You won't want to miss this special performance that will include favorites from different eras and genres of music.

Admission is free, and food and beverages (including alcohol) will be available for purchase. Take MARTA or the free Trolley from Chamblee Plaza, and help us kick off the biggest party in Chamblee! Music starts at 6:30 and The Mike Veal Band will perform from 7:00-10:00 p.m.

Born and raised in the heart of the deep south, Lead Vocalist Mike Veal is no stranger to the blues. As a child living in the towns of Milledgeville and Macon in south Georgia, Mike was strongly influenced by area musicians and singers whose lives and songs reflected the true origins of American Blues. As he grew, Veal found himself drawn to the soulful voices of Otis Redding, James Brown and Gregg Allman. Those early influences still strongly color Mike's style today. At 16, Mike started singing professionally with Sansara Show Band, and later worked with Johnny Rivers, and Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. Today, working with long-time friends and bandmates, Mike consistently delivers 110% on stage, believing "you should never do a song you can't lose yourself in".
