Greensboro, GA (September 19, 2018) – Reynolds Lake Oconee and Oconee Performing Arts Society (OPAS) are pleased to present The 2nd Annual Rhythm & Brews Festival at The Sandy Creek Barn on October 20, 2018. 

The Rhythm & Brews Festival will feature live music from multiple bands, craft beer and wine tasting, and local and regional food trucks, all set amongst a picturesque backdrop. 

This year’s Festival will present an incredible All-Georgia line-up of musical talent, including Collective Soul, Drivin N Cryin, and Eric Dodd. 

Collective Soul was born during the rise of grunge and alternative rock, breaking into mainstream popularity with their early 90’s rock anthem, “Shine.” The multi-platinum band has been making music for two decades and was inducted into The Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2009.  

Drivin N Cryin embodies the soul of Southern rock. The band draws influence from a wide array of musical elements and has developed a unique sound over the years. Their name derives from the eclectic nature of this sound: a little drivin’ rock n roll and a little country twang. 

Eric Dodd, originally from Lake Oconee, gained national attention as a CMT Discovery Artist. He honed his craft by playing more than 200 dates a year across the southeast, where his feel-good lyrics and energetic stage presence earned him a faithful following. His musical journey has him weaving seamlessly between rock, country, and Americana. 

Gates will open at 6:30 p.m., and complimentary shuttle service will be provided from several locations.
