The band McNary was formed August 2010 when Dan Sheffield showed up for a drumming audition at Tim McNary's Atlanta apartment. Dan arrived with only a kick drum and a snare drum, but got the gig in spite of his subpar equipment. Two months later, Dan and Tim had hired a bassist and were opening up for the national singer songwriter duo The Civil Wars at The Melting Point in Athens, GA. By March 2011, Dan and Tim had quit their day jobs and started playing music full time, thanks to above average drive and business acumen. After months of hiring and firing bassists, Dan and Tim decided to move the multi-talented Dan up to the bass guitar and search for a drummer. After weeks of auditions, they chose Elliott Phillips in May of 2011. McNary is currently growing their fan base by playing around the southeast. They're proud owners of a '98 Dodge Grand Caravan that takes them from town to town. They've already logged 130 shows in 2011 and plan to enter the studio to record their second studio album in January 2012. All ages welcome. No cover charge.
