Sumilan Brought together in the Classic City - Athens, GA - Sumilan is a band breaking the boundaries of classification. With a natural sound that has evolved into its own, the Georgia-grown group has combined individual appreciations for music with a belief in high dosages of experimentation and is sticking to these roots. Their live performances showcase the band's depth of chemistry and skill, which are both gaining notice.

Pronunciation -- SUE-muh-lahn Voodoo Visionary Voodoo Visionary is an improvisational funk/dance band from Atlanta, GA. A delicate balance of a tight rhythm section featuring deep grooving bass and funky drum beats paired with keys that will unlock your heart, masterful guitar licks, and electrifying solos create a sound the group calls psychofunk. Influenced by a wide array of artists such as the Grateful Dead, Talking Heads, Parliament Funkadelic, Galactic, Medeski Martin and Wood and others, Voodoo Visionary has a uniquely blended sound that’s guaranteed to put the 'oogie in yo boogie. The band is made up of Dennis Dowd (keys), Jimmy Lynch (bass), Scott MacDonald (vocals), Mac Schmitz (drums), and Mike Wilson (guitar). Mike, Mac and Jimmy have been jamming together for over 8 years, during which time they built a unique chemistry that allows for exceptional improvisation during live shows. The naturally talented Scottie Mac joined the group in July 2013 as the lead vocalist and Voodoo Visionary began writing new music and playing shows immediately. Dowd joined the band in March 2014 providing a missing link that enhanced the band’s unique sound, and the group has taken off around the Atlanta music scene.
