Black Tie Overdrive is a group formed by Casey Collins in 2011. The group started as a solo project for Casey as an outlet for all the music he was writing that did not fit in the bands he was playing in. Upon the split of his band Brothers Belvedere he picked up Ben Safin to take over guitars to fill in some sound the music was lacking in live performances. The duo have been writing and performing like crazy and are working on their first EP of a three EP series. In the meantime they are playing shows all over North Ga from The Monkey Barrel in Gainesville to Wild Bills in Duluth. Mixing their unique style of rock, reggae, and blues along with an ending list of rockin' cover tunes. So be sure to check these guys out and be on the lookout for their first EP "Shadows" which is expected to be released by summer of 2014.
