Georgia-based vocalist Ansley Stewart was Perpetual Groove‘s special guest at the Atlanta area venue From The Earth Brewing Company on Saturday. Stewart joined the quartet for Tyrone Davis and The Rolling Stones covers in Roswell, Georgia.

Saturday’s concert took place at From The Earth Brewing Company’s Back Porch space. The current PGroove lineup featuring guitarist Brock Butler, bassist Adam Perry, keyboardist Matt McDonald and new drummer Darren Stanley kicked off the evening with a “Two Shores” that gave way to the band’s beloved cover of Peter Gabriel’s “Digging In The Dirt.” Butler then led his bandmates on “Suburban Speedball” before the group lit into their classic instrumental “Robot Waltz.”

Ansley Stewart’s first appearance of the evening came next as she sang Tyrone Davis’ “Turn Back The Hands Of Time” with Brock. Stewart and Butler traded verses on the 1970 soul chestnut. PGroove then went it alone on “Best Of Anything” and fit Butthole Surfers’ “Pepper” within their own “Sun Dog” to end their first set in Roswell.

Perpetual Groove served up their well-jammed take on The Cars’ “Drive” to get Saturday’s second set underway. “Drive” bled into fan-favorite “Three Weeks” which led into live staple “TTFPJ.” The three-song starting sequence spanned over 40 minutes and was followed by old school gems “Walkin’ In Place,” “Out Here” and “Playground.”

Stewart was on hand for the encore in Roswell. The local musician provided harmony vocals on a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Sway” to close out the concert.
