Will Epperly Mill be checking for vaccine cards?

Yes, In order to continue presenting live music indoors, it has been requested by the artists, that all patrons be vaccinated.  Thanks for your understanding in this.  This keeps people employed, venues open, and communities safe. All of our employees have been vaccinated. We are all just trying to keep moving on with life, and while inconvenient, at least we get to gather and work if we are conscientious in how we move forward. 

We will be checking for cards at the gate and will be required for entry. 

Proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test is required to attend this event. You received a vaccine card when you got your shot. 

Jontavious Willis

Every generation or so, a young bluesman bursts onto the scene and sends a jolt through the blues community.  Jontavious Willis may just have that effect on people. The 24-year-old multi-instrumentalist was nominated for a GRAMMY in 2020 thanks to his latest album, Spectacular Class. Through original lyrics written by Willis himself, the gifted musician delivers a timeless album that features dynamic vocals and all types of blues: Delta, Piedmont, Texas, and Gospel. His stand-out fingerpicking, flat-picking, and slide prowess are also on display.

GRAMMY award-winning artists Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’ played an active role in producing Spectacular Class with Taj Mahal credited as Executive Producer and Keb’ Mo’ as the Producer. In addition to its digital release, the album will also be available on CD and vinyl.

Website: Jontavious Willis

Hailing from Greenville, Georgia, Willis grew up singing Gospel music at the Mount Pilgrim Baptist Church with his grandfather. Since an early age, he had the talent and passion for the music and the ability to sharpen his skills fast.  At the age of 14, he came across a YouTube video of Muddy Waters playing “Hoochie Coochie Man” and was instantly hooked on the blues.

He got his much-needed break from the living legend Taj Mahal, who described him as the “Wonderboy” and “the Wunderkind.” In 2015, Mahal asked Willis to play on stage with him. That appearance resulted in a roaring response from the audience and led Willis to bigger stages and broader opportunities, including an opening slot at select shows along the TajMo tour, featuring his musical mentors Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’.

Many fans of Willis regard him as an old soul. His style of playing the instruments and his voice touches the very roots of country blues. He brings back the true soul of the music. A newspaper headline once called him a “70-year-old bluesman in a 20-year-old body.”

Creekside Pavillion

    Epperly Mills Creek side Pavilion is a natural Amphitheater. Situated on our one and a half acre grounds next to Dodd creek, the stage is next to the creek and in front of the wooded, blue stone hillside. The creek follows the grounds, and a natural curve is created. Along with the rolling hillside and hardwood trees opposite the stage and dotting the grounds, you will experience a premier acoustical outdoor performance.

    The 12 x 24 foot stage can accommodate a much larger band than the “ hickory stage” indoors and will be featuring an eclectic mix of genres. We also welcome dance and theatre performances.

    All of our shows on the mill grounds are designed around the idea of a small footprint, one day festival. Feel free to bring a blanket and your own chairs. Some picnic tables are provided for sharing.

   Tickets are available thru our web site and at the gate if not sold out

   All shows are general admission and are on a first come, first to the stage basis.  We have good site lines throughout the grounds and acoustics are great from anywhere onsite.

  Food options are plentiful with fresh, clean and healthy cuisines from Two Trees Catering.

  Bar service is provided with several bottled beer options many wines, and a few top shelf liquors.

   Parking is provided adjacent to the mill on a first come, first park policy. Overflow parking requires a short, free shuttle from the Crenshaw Lighting Complex parking lot just up the road.

  Our outdoor venue at the mill is on a rolling lawn and can be difficult for some folks to navigate. we are happy to accommodate our ADA guests.

   Ample restrooms and hand washing stations are provided.

The Hickory Stage

The Epperly Mill is proud to welcome you into our listening room. We feature local, regional and national touring bands and artists in a one of a kind listening environment.

   This historic Grist Mill has been transformed into a listening space for those of us who enjoy listening to the performers without disturbance. The naturally rich acoustics can be attributed to the 120 year old, posts, beams and original floors. Along with the natural sound diffusers between floor joists, you have a room with superior sound and warmth.

   The act’s presented at the mill will be impressed, by the attentive crowd, the rich acoustics, and the professional sound system that is provided. We strive to take great care of the musicians and performers and we understand “ the rigors of the road”

    The low rise stage is comfortable for up to a four piece band, and perfect for three piece or solo acts

  All artists are provided a beautiful greenroom in the Kimball suite, with a wide array of food and drink selections. Housing at the mill in both, the Kimball, and Coleman suites is also provided if desired.

    For the guests, along with the great experience of the music itself, the mill offers an impressive selection of global soul foods and bar services. We have a nice selection of craft beers, several wines and a few top shelf cocktails. Arrive early, grab some food and drink and walk the beautiful grounds along Dodd creek, admire the century old rock walls and dams, towering old walnut, cherry, elm and sycamore trees and surrounding views before settling in for a great night of music in a warm and inviting setting.

   The food options, along with the bar service is situated just outside of the mill and listening room. Right along the creek, guests can mingle outside if they wish to converse, and the music can still be heard and enjoyed.     

   Here at the mill we enforce a “please be quiet” policy.

While the artists love the audience to applaud, laugh, and even sing along, too much conversation can be a distraction to other listeners and the performers, who deserve the respect of all audience members.

   We encourage talking before the show, at set breaks and after the show. We strongly encourage audience members not to talk during the show. If you are warned multiple times, you will be politely asked to leave.
