The Atlanta Rhythm Section (ARS) boasts a rich history dating back to their inception in 1971. Originating from the vibrant music scene of Atlanta, Georgia, the band swiftly distinguished themselves, blending Southern rock, soul, jazz, and blues into a distinctive and resonant sound.

Under the leadership of original lead vocalist Rodney Justo, ARS embarked on a trajectory that propelled them to the forefront of the music industry, earning them widespread acclaim as one of the most revered bands of the 1970s. Justo’s commanding stage presence and soulful vocals became emblematic of the band’s identity, profoundly influencing their sonic landscape and garnering steadfast admiration from audiences worldwide.

From humble beginnings performing in local venues to sharing stages with esteemed rock luminaries, ARS cultivated a devoted following that transcended generations. Their repertoire, anchored by chart-topping singles such as “Spooky”, a reinterpretation of the Classic IV’s 1968 hit, “So into You”, “I’m Not Gonna Let It Bother Me Tonight”, and “Imaginary Lover”, epitomized their versatility and songwriting prowess.

Albums such as “Champagne Jam”, “Dog Days”, and “Rock and Roll Alternative” underscored ARS’s mastery of blending genres seamlessly, crafting a sound that was distinctly their own and resonated deeply with audiences.

Despite evolving lineups over the years, ARS has consistently enraptured audiences with their polished yet dynamic performances. Their live shows serve as a testament to their enduring legacy, drawing enthusiasts to venues worldwide to experience their timeless classics and captivating narratives firsthand.

As they prepare to grace the stage once more at Mars Music Hall on June 28, the Atlanta Rhythm Section stands as a paragon of musical excellence and cultural significance. Guided by Rodney Justo’s artistic vision, attendees can anticipate an evening suffused with enduring classics, compelling anecdotes, and the enduring spirit of Southern rock.
