Five40 on the NW GA Music Hour

October 10, 2012

Today on The Northwest Georgia Music Hour we were joined by Chuck Taylor and Matt “MJ” Johnson of Five40. These guys have been super busy since performing in the Final Five of this year’s 95.7 The Ridge Battle of the Bands. They’ve got two excellent music videos from their self-titled album, they are working on a new album, and they’ve earned the ears of listeners nationally.

Chuck and MJ caught us up on what has been going on with the six-piece rap/rock/ska band from Gordon County, which is not what you typically expect from an area most noted for it’s old time string band music and bluegrass fame. Chuck and MJ also performed two live acoustic songs, “Through with You” (which we’ve played the studio version on NWGAMH) and “Cut Me Open” (a new one scheduled to be on the new album).

I also got to enjoy a few SPAM jokes with Stewart Shockley (from Fab Tuesdays on The Ridge)

Find out more about Five40 on their facebook page, and as always, thanks to Stephens Music Company for hosting The Northwest Georgia Music Hour.

Here are Five40’s videos from the first album.

I think this one’s really cool too.
