N.E.W. Athens is a band dedicated to performing the music of R.E.M. including the classics, the big hits, and the deep cuts. We've performed at some of the D.C. area's best venues, including The Hamilton, The Ottobar, Villain & Saint, Tally Ho, and more. We also play private and corporate events.
The group includes four veteran musicians who have come together to honor one of the great American bands. The name N.E.W. athens pays tribute to Athens, GA., where R.E.M. was formed. N.E.W. athens' set list covers a wide range of R.E.M.'s work focusing mainly, but not exclusively, on the band's earliest albums. Lifelong R.E.M. fans and new fans, alike, will hear great music and have a great time.
