The H&H Restaurant, Macon
"Mama Louise" Hudson has been happily feeding folks at the H&H at 807 Forsyth Street in Macon since the late 60's. Serving up “home cooked” food in a casual, comfortable setting "where everyone knows your name" has been Mama Louise’s specialty for many years. Her regulars wouldn’t dare miss out on her fried chicken, baked ham, collard greens and black-eyed peas.
The Allman Brothers Band wouldn’t dream of not visiting Mama Louise while they were at home in Macon.
Grant's Lounge, Macon
From the beginning Grant's Lounge was more than just another night club. Its existence made a loud statement about people and the oneness of human beings. Also, it was from this modest establishment that much of what the world now knows as Southern Rock was conceived.

Lee Roy Parnell is among
the elite few who can be identified as a triple threat: an ace guitarist
as well as a distinctive singer and hit songwriter. Parnell has garnered
the respect of fans and industry veterans alike with his soulful vocals
and award-winning slide guitar playing. His music runs the gamut of
diversity: blue-eyed soul, Delta blues, road house rock, Southern boogie,
Texas swing, and gospel defying conventional classification. He draws from
a broad range of music sources and combines them with seamless dexterity.
Lee Roy Parnell was our headlining artist for GABBAfest '03.
