The Philadelphia Neshoba County Musicians' Association put on a show saturday night and raised over 1000 dollars for charity. Ten musicians and six bands took the stage at the Magnolia Room in hopes of raising much needed funds for a new playground at the park.

Bands that performed were: Red Beard, The Red Dead, The Dirty Duo, SunWolf, Dark Sundays, and Calico.

Performers included: Jeff Stewart, Joe Latham, Josh Griffin, Patrick Eakes, Joe Rush, Andy Hardy, Ben Hardy, David Lauderdale, Josh Cherry, Logan Comby, and Daniel Sharp.

The Show began with original songs by Red Beard followed by the debut of Josh Cherry and Ben Hardy as The Dirty Duo. Next SunWolf performed to a swelling crowd before Dark Sundays delivered a new song about Helen Keller and Ninjas. Patrick Eakes sang a song an excellent rendition of Wagon Wheel. Jeff Stewart and Joe Latham then joined Calico for some high energy down home music while boots stomped, ladies twirled, and fellows shook the night away in Neshoba County Fair fashion. Finishing out the night was The Red Dead paying tribute to The Grateful Dead by delivering over an hour of Dead tunes much to the pleasure of a swaying and adoring group of friends.

All in all, over $1000 dollars was raised for the kids park project at the Magnolia Room Saturday and as Logan Comby said " a good time was had by all...and I love chips". - Neshoba Free Press


The new CD by Meridian-based band Dark Sundays will be available Tuesday. Titled "Knight of the Sun," the 14-track album lives up to what the band's manager, John Maxey, describes as "All thriller -- no filler."

Anyone who has followed the band's evolution over the last four years will sense a definite growth and maturity in the band on this CD.

All 14 tracks were written by Logan Comby, who doesn't mind telling people it's a great album.

"I admit I'm not the most modest person. But, I also don't brag about things that don't pay off," Comby said.

About half the songs on "Knight of the Sun" were written within a month or two while Comby was living on his friend and fellow musician, Daniel Sharp's farm in Philadelphia.

Comby doesn't try to write songs, he writes what flows into his conciousness.

"I write a lot about the supernatural unintentionally -- ghosts, vampires, aliens," Comby said.

Two of the songs on "Knight of the Sun" were ispired by Stephen King novels, "It" and "Needful Things."

All the songs work on "Knight of the Sun" even though they span and transcend a wide range of musical genres.

"It's set up very much like a complete package," Crocker said of the album.

Brown notes that "Knight of the Sun" is very much a local product. It was produced and recorded by the band, and the album's artwork was done by friends.

"A lot of the credit on how the album sounds goes to Cory," Comby said. "He's a master of orchestration. The quality is amazing. It's something you can listen to over and over."

And, their Ghost Folk sound appeals to a wide range of fans, which include preteens up to folks in their 50s.

On Thursday, Aprill 22, Dark Sundays will play the back deck at the Echo Lounge in Meridian for their "Knight of the Sun" CD Release Show. - The Meridian Star

Bio

A self-described "Ghost Folk" band, Dark Sundays started 4 years ago as the solo project of Logan Comby. Logan traveled across the country, playing his songs anywhere and everywhere the mood struck. After releasing several successful self-made recordings Logan returned to Meridian, Mississippi…the Queen City. Almost as soon as Logan returned, Dark Sundays released a split LP with Cory Brown’s Calamity Backpack entitled “The Burden of Dreams”. Afterwards, Cory joined Dark Sundays as lead guitarist and Adam Wade enlisted on the drums. Shannon Crocker came aboard on bass guitar to finally round out the full ensemble.
With the impending release of their full length LP “Knight of the Sun” in mid-April, Dark Sundays has grown into their ghost folk birthright.
