“The Ides of June” was formed in February of 2015, while the idea was born on June 15th, 2012 with the tragic suicide of the mother of Dusty Huggins (Lead Vocals) . He and his best friend, Clay McConnell (Lead Guitar), then picked up guitars and began their musical journey together. In 2015 the duo joined forces with Justin Nelson (Percussion) and completed their four piece in late 2016 with Blues Specialist Alex Gannon (Lead Guitar). 2016 brought the group it’s first gigs at legendary venues in Atlanta, such as, The Masquerade, Smith’s Olde Bar, The Hard Rock Cafe, and Center Stage along with their debut full length album “Exist!” The group believes that their work ethic, belief in equality, and love for people and music can propel them through 2017. Only the future knows what is in store for these Rock n Rollers out of Atlanta, but one thing is for certain, they are going to make some noise on the Southern music scene in the upcoming year.
