Opportunity knocked this weekend when a man named Chris called us asking for a band to play last minute for his @bottleshareofficial charity event. Embracing the moment, we packed up our gear and soon made the journey up to Kennesaw. Soon after our first set, Chris gave a speech to everyone about his story and how he has overcome the odds from a traumatic car accident. It was a truly inspiring moment hearing him speak and realizing that not every day is granted and to live life to the fullest. Please check out his story at @bottleshareofficial! Also that Victory or Valhalla brew is damn delicious, fill your glass with some of that next time and support the local businesses in the wonderful state of GA!!
