The Daniel Johnson Band will play a show at 10 p.m. Friday at The Country Club Dance Hall & Saloon, at 2834 Washington Road in Augusta.
The four-piece band includes two Thomson natives, Daniel Johnson and Chris Cook, and two of their classmates from Georgia Southern University, bassist Logan McCullough and lead guitarist Lee Hopkins.
Band manager Randy Fields said the band has defined its own genre called "Southern alternative," with an overall sound comparable to Cross Canadian Ragweed.
"On the demo we have alternative, country and rock, but we're more targeted to the country rock genre now," he said. "It's not your typical, traditional western country."
The group has released a demo, which is available on their Web site, and is working on their debut EP album of all original music.
