Rock Candy Tours

No Comments | Tags: , , , , , , ,

Located 84 miles due south from Atlanta, Macon, Georgia is widely recognized as “The Song and Soul of the South” due to its rich music heritage.

And it’s no wonder, with venerable artists like names Johnny Jenkins, Otis Redding, Little Richard, Joey Stuckey, and the Marshall Tucker Band, among others from the world of Gospel, Rock, Country, Classical and Blues getting their starts here.

One of the best ways to delve into more of Macon’s wealth of music history, is through Rock Candy Tours, whose founders believed that this history “…already existed on its sidewalks, street corners, historic structures and if the walls could talk, they would sing.”

The company offers two different tours.

The Rock n’ Roll Stroll is an extensive, “off the beaten path” tour encompassing the favorite haunts, office spaces, the homes, crash pads of these now legendary artists, as well as the eclectic behind-the-scenes personalities who propelled Macon into the national and international music consciousness.

The Free Birds & Night Owls Tour highlights some of the various artists’ favorite hangouts, nightclubs where they played and downtown landmarks where they made history.

Private tours and customized tours for large groups, and step-on motor coach tours can also be arranged by appointment.

It all ties into many of the historic sites and attractions that have earned Macon its permanent place on the world music map.

This is just the beginning of all that Macon has to offer.
