Country Western band to play concert at ARTworks

in Arts by

Junkyard Angel, a Country Western band from Savannah will be playing a concert at ARTworks on Friday, March 28 at 7:30 p.m.

Junkyard Angel is comprised of Stewart Marshall on vocals and electric and rhythm guitar, Jim Marshall on vocals and acoustic guitar, Scotty Rahn on lead guitar and vocals, Scott Tanner on bass, and drummer Joe Ippolito. These guys are a tight knit group who have been together since 2005. Playing a mix of original compositions and cover tunes done in Junkyard’s unique style, band members describe their sound as “used, abused, rhinestone-infused, old school country and rock.”

Junkyard Angel recorded their first album, Medicine Jar, in 2009. A second album, Silent Hero, soon followed which was recorded at Skyline Studios in Nashville where Lady Antebellum records.

The band members toured extensively for years — both with individual careers and as Junkyard Angel. However, these days they prefer to stick closer to home. In regard to touring, lead vocalist Stewart Marshall says, “I’ve been there, I’ve done that. [These days] everybody’s got jobs and families, so we’re kind of tapped for time. Except for my brother Jim, all of us are in our mid 40s. Between kids, soccer, lacrosse, football and karate …”

So there you have it. Junkyard Angel is a mix of high and low, country and rock, original music and familiar tunes, hard rocking musicians and family men, all of which contributes to what Junkyard Angels has always been, a product of its Southern roots and values, and what it will be in the futures as it sits poised to burst onto the national stage.
