Legendary party band, The B-52’s, began its musical career in the mid-70’s following drinks at a Chinese restaurant in Athens, GA. After spending the beginning of its career road tripping for multiple gigs, the band’s music soon became a list of chart-topping hits. Although the lively band has been around for over 34 years, its unique tunes are still favorites around the world.
Fred Schneider, frontman and founding member of the B-52’s, will be paying a visit to Atlanta, GA this July during The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market. On Friday, July 10, AmericasMart will be hosting “An Evening of Fun with Fred Schneider of the B-52’s and DJ Vicky” on the Portman Blvd Patio. This must-see event is brought to Market by Monster Coffee.
