Our cover story this week is all about Savannah Stopover, which is from March 9-11. This festival is so massive, with 80+ bands in 10 venues over three days, that we have to split our coverage over two weeks! So be sure to keep an eye out for band interviews in next week's issue as well. Read about headliners Lee Fields & The Expressions, Ezra Furman and more, plus all our local bands here.
Again looking ahead to March 9, get your tickets now so you don't miss those Harlem Globetrotters in action in Savannah! We talked to "Slick" Willie Shaw, who says, "Just to see the smile on their faces is great. I love to see people smile.” Read our full interview here.

Your family can enjoy a fun day in Forsyth Park for a great cause on March 4 as Savannah Battle Ball hosts "The Battle for the Balls" tournament to benefit American Cancer Society and raise awareness of testicular cancer.
