Christ, Lord + Hello Ocho

On June 9, 2013, Atlanta-based bands Hello Ocho and Christ, Lord performed at Institute 193 as part of their nationwide tour. Lexington-based Dave Cave also played a set.

Influenced by jazz, pop, and Eastern European folk, Christ, Lord members, Christian Ballew, Brandon Camarda, Ryan Lamb, Billy Mitchell, Adam Mincey, Julian Hinshaw, and Maddy Davis, have been playing together since 2009. The unorthodox sextet delivers an energetic performance on the upright bass, drums, accordion, trumpet, guitar, tuba, and vibraphone.

Christ, Lord released their first album, Magnalia Christi, in 2010. This year, they released a live recording in collaboration with the Atlanta record store Criminal Records. Click here to watch the new video for their song “Frank Sinatra,” shot in the North Georgia mountains while the band completed a residency at the Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts.
