Concert Review: Avenue Trio (Taylorsville and Chatsworth, GA)

by | Aug 16, 2018 | Concert Review

A few weeks ago, I was able to see Avenue Trio in concert not once, but twice in north Georgia, at Taylorsville Baptist and Smyrna Baptist Churches! This trio is brand new but I already knew two of their members, Kasey Kemp and Corey Lackey, from Allegiance. The third member, Jacob Lagesse, is a newcomer and soon-to-be graduate from Trevecca Nazarene University. Though they are based out of Nashville, the three members hail from Illinois, Detroit and Chicago – so they’re not “Southern” boys at all! Although they have only been touring for about 2 months or so, they blend very well together and seem to have great rapport with each other on stage. I really appreciated that for the two services I attended, they sang several different songs at each one – pretty doggone good for a brand new group!

Soon after I saw them, Avenue released their first CD, “Songs For Every Mile,” that is full of wonderful cover songs from a great variety of artists and songwriters. Here are a few videos for you – two of which are songs from the new album (shown with asterisks).

Avenue Trio is being scheduled by the Dominion Agency, so check their schedule and go see them if you can!

Diana is from the Atlanta, Georgia area and is a relatively recent southern gospel fan, having started listening avidly about 15 years ago. With easy access to eastern Alabama, southeastern Tennessee and north and central Georgia, Diana attends as many concerts as her schedule allows to see a wide variety of artists.
