Acoustic Alley: Ponderosa

Atlanta’s Ponderosa stepped out and stepped up with their second full length album, 2012’s Pool Party. Moving from a more traditional Southern Rock sound and into a more psychedelic acid rock sound the band quickly received praise for one their dramatic growth and expansion into this new territory. Pool Party was one of a handful of albums that appeared on my personal “Best of” 2012 list.


They were kind enough to meet up with the TBI crew at this year’s SXSW and film a couple songs well away from any Alleys. You may have seen our more recent Acoustic Alley where the boys were plugged in, but this is just beautiful music in the beautiful sunshine in Austin, TX. – Words by Everett Verner
