Michael Tolcher headlines “Unfiltered Live” concert series

"Unfiltered Live" will feature Michael Tolcher & The Pros and Musical Director Will Turpin

 Michael Tolcher and the Pros will headline a popular concert series and is bringing with him an all-star cast of local and national talent to pay tribute to the Peach State’s rich musical heritage.

Park Tavern at Piedmont Park has tapped Tolcher to headline the “Unfiltered Live” series, a six-week concert series that starts every Thursday from March 21 to April 25, from 8 to 11 p.m. The park is located at 500 Tenth St. in the heart of Atlanta.

“I’m rolling it out big because Atlanta is my hometown and I want to bring everyone together and celebrate with music,” said Tolcher, a pop/blues/urban groove artist who has toured with Maroon 5, Dave Matthews, Collective Soul and Blues Traveler. “Part of the theme is spontaneous surprises, and that won’t be limited to just music.”

No surprise to anyone is Tolcher’s musical director for the six-week residency – Collective Soul member and multi-platinum artist Will Turpin.

This concert series is something that live music lovers will want to attend,” said Turpin, who produced Tolcher’s 2006 album Certified Organic. Georgia musicians and music will certainly be featured each week and impromptu moments mixed in with guest performers will make each Thursday night its own unique experience.”

Some of the Atlanta-area musicians, all of who are national recording and touring artists, include Jeff Mosier, Joe Gransden and Yonrico Scott.

“We’ll play some of their music as well as material from every great Georgia artist including Little Richard, James Brown, Ray Charles, The Allman Brothers, R.E.M. and of course, Collective Soul,” Tolcher said. “I want there to be a sense of pride about the music that comes from our state and the only way to do that is to play it.”

Park Tavern is located in the heart of Midtown on the corner of 10th Street and Monroe overlooking Piedmont Park and the Midtown skyline. Park Tavern combines the historic charm of the site with the modern sophistication of Atlanta’s impressive skyline.
