In the early 1970s a new form of music was emerging in the South. A mixture of blues, country, gospel and the English invasion of rock and roll that later was to be coined the phrase "Southern Rock." The music was filled with style and emotion and with bands in the forefront such as the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and a band from Jacksonville, Florida called Molly Hatchet. Named after a famous 17th century axe murderess "hatchet molly" who would behead her lovers with the hand tool Lizzy Borden made famous.
Their self-titled debut album which included Danny Joe Brown, Dave Hlubek, Duane Roland, Steve Holland, Banner Thomas and Bruce Crump in the lineup was released on Epic records in 1978 and reached multi-platinum status as the band established their reputation of working hard, playing tough and living fast through intense touring with such bands as Aerosmith, Bob Seger, The Rolling Stones and many more. In 1979, Flirtin' With Disaster was released and history was in the making. The band continued touring on the road with an average of 250 live shows per year and like the first album it also achieved multi-platinum status. Lead singer, Danny Joe Brown left the band in 1980 and contacted Bobby Ingram, a Jacksonville based guitarist and friend, who gave brown his first singing gig in 1975 with a Jacksonville based band called Rum Creek. Brown and Ingram then put together with keyboardist John Galvin the Danny Joe Brown Band and continued touring until 1982. The album was produced by Glyn Johns at Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas as he has worked with legendary artist The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, The Eagles and many more.
Molly Hatchet supports tradition that keeps developing the common bond and unity that keeps this style of music alive and well and rest assured Molly Hatchet is a band that is always workin' hard, playin' tough, livin' fast, and still Flirtin' with Disaster!!!

Based out of Virginia Beach, Virginia, "The New Lords"' is a band rising from the embers of the legendary "Blue Lords Band" that suddenly and abruptly ended in 2015. While the road of rock and roll is littered with stories of such... true fans rally and encourage those remaining to carry on its legacy and continue on. Such is the case here. Guitarist and vocalist, Tony Bullard, being the last original member of this legendary group has decided along with the love and encouragement of long time members Charlie Aycock and Steve Wiley to carry on its legacy.
"The New Lords" aim to keep climbing the mountains and reaching for the stars...and with the love and support of you all.....we shall.
Guitarist/vocalist Tony Bullard: "There is something about the South, southern bands, southern music in general that resonates in your soul, and there is a brotherhood among all of the bands that we all share and are extremely proud to be a part of. We all were raised on country music, classic, southern rock and blues. The Allmans, Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, Marshall Tucker, that whole movement was an exciting time in music. We still love what we do, and it's truly an honor to be able to perform for people and carry on that tradition. It's all about the fans and the music, giving it your all at every show and being thankful for your blessings. We do ... and we are."to perform for people and carry on that tradition. It's all about the fans and the music, giving it your all at every show and being thankful for your blessings. We do ... and we are."
