With deep roots in soul, Motown and beach music, The Grains of Sand take you on a musical journey performing classic hits from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Effortlessly blending musical genres, the band creates a fresh and energetic sound that will take you to a simpler place and time with their soulful vocals, timeless keyboards, rocking guitars and of course, smokin’ hot horns.
The lineup consists of Scotty Piotrowski on trumpet, lead, and backup vocals along with Donny Whitehead on baritone, tenor, alto and soprano sax as well as lead and backup vocals. Scotty and Donny have performed for over 45 years together in another well-known Athens-based band, The Jesters. Over the years they have performed on stage with the likes of Marvin Gaye, The Platters, Jerry Butler, The Marvelettes, Jackie Wilson and Patti Labelle.
