The Good Little Chickens

The Good Little Chickens is a young band out of Tallahassee that first took shape in Leon High School’s music program. The band’s name was inspired by guitar teacher Ed Prasse, who jokingly calls his students “good little chickens” if they play well, and “bad little chickens,” if they don’t. GLC lead guitarist and slide player Hub Chason III has also studied music with Luther Dickinson from the North Mississippi Allstars and the late drummer Butch Trucks, of Allman Brothers Band fame. The group’s sound is a mixture of blues, funk, contemporary pop and soul. The lineup also includes Austin Boyd on drums, Jack Byerts on trombone and guitar, Ellis Chaires on tenor saxophone, Rebekah Hopkins on leads vocals, Josiah Pye on bass, Dylan Tucker on alto saxophone, Dawson Tucker on trumpet and Gilbert Voegtlin on piano.
