Bloody Red Hearts

Jesse Harte/Tommy Redd

Last fall I traveled to the 1930’s built Civic Center in Rome, Georgia to relive the glory days of the local Atlanta scene coupled with the still very relevant Skid Row and Warrant for a night of Rock and Roll. Jessie Harte and his new band Bloody Red Hearts opened the show.

Jessie Harte was the lead vocalist of Byte the Bullet who became Southgang – a fantastic (but a bit too late) 80’s rock band from Atlanta (Rome) Ga. The band featured guitarist Butch Walker (yes that Butch Walker) and fellow bandmates Jayce Fincher and Mitch McLee who went on to form Floyd’s Funk Revival which ultimately become Marvelous 3. Tommy Redd and his band Redd Threat were staples in the 80’s Atlanta Music scene along with bands such as Skin Deep, Vagrant Justice, Panda, Icebreaker, Snake Nation, and Faerchild to name a few. The old stumping grounds such as Harlow’s, Avondale Town Cinema, Danny’s, and Charlie Macgruders are now long gone.
