An exciting, energetic night of musical performances awaits attendees at this Saturday’s
Music on Main Street, 7:30 p.m., on Main Street in Lobelville, TN.
Pure Bred Rebels take the stage as the concert opener; headliner Johnny Collier will close
Collier is no stranger to the Music on Main stage. He brings something unique to his
fans and followers in today’s music scene.
Digging deep into his Nashville and Muscle Shoals roots, Johnny mixes country music’s
past and present to create a passionate, soulful music adventure.
This isn’t the stuff your Daddy stomped his boots to, but it kind of is. You’ll hear a hint of R&B
Johnny’s is not a rock show, but it totally does. His ability to fuse that feel-good driving
country beat with a contemporary musical vision lead Johnny to write hot selling fan
favorites like “Hole In My Heart”, “I Got This…”, and “Never Really Famous.”
“I’m blessed,” Johnny says, “to perform an average of 140 concerts each year all over the
South for crowds up to 80,000. People tell me all the time, ‘Man, you are so smooth. The music
just flows out of you and it looks like you’re enjoying every second,’ and the truth is, I really
am. And they get to come along.”
With MMG Records, Johnny’s first release, “Honey For Hire,” went to #30 on The World
Wide Top 100 Singles Chart.
He was later awarded “Artist of the Year” by ICU Radio Network for a Number #1 song,
“Love Let Her,” which set new records by remaining in the Top Five for 28 consecutive weeks.
His latest single, “Never Really Famous,” is getting great reviews, radio says, “This song is
an attention-getter right from the first verse.”
Collier got his start working with the Hank Williams, Jr. Band and has gone on to play
with some of country music’s finest performers, such as T. Graham Brown, Marty Raybon,
Terri Gibbs, Stella Parton, and so many others.
His drummer, Mitch Rigel’s big break came when he was hired by Gary Rossington to drum
for Lynyrd Skynyrd. After two years touring with the Skynyrd Tribute Tour, Mitch went on to
record studio tracks for major artists, tour with various groups, and worked with the Edd Jones
Orchestra for over 12 years.
Bass player Alaina Sims began her career in live audio and lighting production,
working with Chevalier Productions and recording artist Rexton Lee, and playing for southern
favorites such as Diedra and The Ruff Pro Band, The Ferguson Brothers, Young Sullivan, and more.
Pure Bred Rebels started in September 2012. They are a Tennessee country rock n' roll band
Jojo Malugin on Guitar & Vocals, Jon Malugin on bass, and Jimmy Taulbee on drums.
The rock-based band incorporated styles from rap, country, metal, but most of all, rock n' roll.
The Pure Bred Rebels are based in Maury County but have Perry County ties. They have
played all over Tennessee and parts of Alabama.
The music becomes magic through their energy.
Jojo said, “We are currently finishing up the final writing touches on our new album. We play
for the love of the music and to inspire the people.
