Atlanta-based AJ Ghent Band to perform at The Loft

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Renowned Atlanta-based group the AJ Ghent Band will take the stage at The Loft in Columbus this weekend. It will be a night of southern rock, blues, funk and soul music.

Band frontman AJ Ghent visited WTVM on Friday April 10 to talk about the concert.

So what can attendees expect to hear at the concert?

"It's like Prince meets James meets Otis Redding," he explained. "You're going to hear some soulful music, some feel-good music. You're going to hear some covers, maybe a little bit of Prince."

The AJ Ghent Band just performed at the Variety Playhouse on Wednesday night with Robert Craig. He says they're all over the scene in Atlanta.

The band has been together for two years, but he says they've been performing for all of their lives. His wife, vocalist Marla Ghent, and his sister also perform in the band, and he says they help him get through.

The concert starts at 9 p.m. on Saturday April 12 at The Loft in Uptown Columbus. For more information call (706) 596-8141. You can also visit their homepage at this link to find out more about the band.
