Atlanta Rhythm Section
Based in Atlanta, Georgia the Atlanta Rhythm Section (ARS) put out 15 albums of excellent original material and consistently put on entertaining live shows-both which helped establish a broad, if not huge fan base. They had some big hits and have been a major player in the Southern Rock scene. ARS was paired with contemporaries Lynyrd Skynyrd as the successors to the Allman Brothers - carrying the mantle of "Southern Rock" in the late 70s. The group continues to make concert appearances showcasing their hit songs and their still outstanding musical abilities.
