Tuscaloosa-born jam rockers CBDB made major news this week, as they revealed the initial lineup for their inaugural Deebs Days Festival at Birmingham's Avondale Brewing Company on August 19th-20th (2022). The band is teaming up with our friends at Big Friendly Productions to bring you music, food, art, and friends as the summer festival season comes to a close. While Avondale Brewery has hosted countless major concerts since opening in 2010, this will be the first event to feature two stages on the property. 
CBDB becomes the latest group to curate its own festival lineup, which is a strategy that has proven to be quite successful amongst their peers. Fellow jam bands such as The String Cheese Incident (Hulaween), Umphrey's McGee & moe. (Summer Camp), Pigeons Playing Ping Pong (DomeFest), The Werks (The Werk Out), and Big Something (The Big What?) have seen great success establishing and building their own festivals over the years. With the dissipation of Birmingham's SlossFest a few years back, there is certainly a void in the city's summer music calendar, which Deebs Days looks to fill. 
Deebs Days revealed the initial lineup on Tuesday, which features the likes of CBDB (x2), Brass Against, Daniel Donato, Mungion, Dave Hause & The Mermaid, Sicard Hollow, The Shady Recruits, The Talismen, The Mountain Grass Unit, LadyCouch, Andy Lyle Hall, Audiophile, Kenny Analoggins, and Potato Gun Canyon. Little Raine Band is listed as the official artists at large, so you can certainly expect to see those guys sitting in with various bands throughout the weekend. More bands are expected to be announced in the weeks to come, as well as details on after parties / late night sets at both Saturn and Zydeco
Tickets for the festival are on sale now, and you can find more details by clicking here. A total of 250 Early Bird Weekend Passes are available for $50. Make sure to stay tuned to Live & Listen socials, as we will be providing extensive preview coverage, exclusive promotional offers, interviews with this year's performers, and maybe even a few ticket + merchandise giveaways. 
Earlier this week, we caught up with CBDB frontman Cy Simonton and Big Friendly Productions co-founder Alex Cape, who shared the following thoughts on the launch of this new and exciting venture for both parties:
“Some of our favorite memories as a band have been made in Birmingham at Avondale, and we couldn’t think of a more fitting place to throw our inaugural Deebs Days Festival. We have rounded up a killer lineup of bands, artists, and vendors, and we can’t wait to share in all of the fun with all of you!“ 
- Cy Simonton (guitar/vocals) of CBDB
“Big Friendly is really excited to team up with CBDB to produce this festival. It will be a one of a kind music and art experience in the backyard of Avondale. We have been dreaming this thing up for a long time. Don’t miss it!”
- Alex Cape of Big Friendly Productions
