With

The Band

We believe in the definition of a collective- a group of individuals forming a whole, motivated by common issues and interests, working together to achieve a common objective.

Our Collective started in 2009 as an open mic night with a new PO: bring together the city’s musicians to share the stage and a classic album while highlighting our community voices together. It’s not a cover band. Not a competition. A true collective sharing the stage, stronger as a whole, working to promote our city’s vibrant musical culture. Today, we operate as a non-profit with the same goals and love for our fellow musicians as the day we started.

Guides us

For the Musician

For the Musician

Everything we do is designed to serve our city's musicians. The empowerment, education, and connection of musicians to each other, new audiences, and the city is paramount to who we are.
We radiate hospitality

We radiate hospitality

Our intimate but ever-growing Atlanta music scene invites all, welcomes all, and takes care of each other. That's the ATL Collective heart.
Atlantan to the core

Atlantan to the core

Our city inspires everything we do. We draw from our roots in Southern and gospel music, celebrate our history of rock and roll and hip-hop, and recognize the little lesser known corners of musical culture throughout the city that may otherwise go unseen. Atlanta music doesn't have only one definition and we like it that way.
Celebrate the Power of  Live Music

Celebrate the Power of Live Music

As musicians and lovers of music, we appreciate and recognize the power and special ability of live music to make an impact. The moments that happen at a live show are unpredictable and sometimes, may never happen again. It's what keeps us coming back.
