Local artist of the week Allen Thompson Band is made up of Allen Thompson, Grayson Downs, Clint Maine, Ray Dunham and Chad Stuible. They’ve been making music in East Nashville and around the country for more than seven years. You may also recognize Thompson as one of the members of the local Grateful Dead cover band The Stolen Faces and from playing around town with some of our favorite Nashvillians like Aaron Lee Tasjan and Brian Wright. Listen to their track “Brace Yourself’” from their recent release of the same name below and all week long on Lightning 100. Don’t miss their free performance this week at Friday Afternoon Live at Soulshine Pizza Factory.
