"This is your opportunity to experience live music and art on so many levels," said Tom Townsend, event organizer. "There's truly nothing else like it in Savannah. You could spend 12 hours hearing accomplished performers across all kinds of musical styles, see and participate in visual art, interact with any number of workshops on creativity, even jam with some great musicians. And it's all ages. Savannah's A-Town Get Down is truly unique."
The A-Town Get Down is a public music and arts festival organized in memory of Alex Townsend, a SCAD student, musician and artist whose life was tragically cut short in an automobile accident on Valentine's Day in 2010. Alex known as "A-Town" selflessly encouraged the talents of others while continuing to find his own.
