This lineup will feature music from Mobile to Tuscaloosa. The Paranormals are a new band on the local scene. So far they can only be heard live, but the band describes its style as one featuring bluegrass instruments but does not focus on bluegrass.

Jake Sanford & His Orchestra is one of two Tuscaloosa bands joining The Paranormals. This group has become a regular at Tuscaloosa venues such as Druid City Brewing Co. The band’s sound has been classified as power folk rock that is “live and unscripted.”

Tuscaloosa’s King’s German Legion is returning to The Blind Mule. This trio is gathering a following with its fiery blues-influenced garage rock. Raw, dirty guitar and unrelenting rhythms highlight this band’s electrifying rock sound. Frontman Jake Gordin has no problem delivering memorable lyrics and mind-blowing runs across the fretboard through its sets.
