It’s been a solid year since booking agent and promoter Ben Bounds officially got Follywood Productions rolling in town. Previously based in Oxford, Miss., Bounds spends most of his time in the Lowcountry these days. He considers his business an “event coordinating service” that focuses on providing original live entertainment. In recent years, he handled management, booking, and publicity for Oxford-based band Daybreakdown, which featured local singer/guitarist Reid Stone (of Guilt Ridden Troubadour). “Being from Mississippi and getting to do this in Charleston and Folly Beach is really special,” Bounds says. “I’ve personally been overwhelmed by the community’s support — that’s something I never felt like we had when I was doing this back home. Looking back, it’s been a whirlwind of a year. We’ve more than tripled our artist roster and expanded our staff. We’re booking 13 states now, which exceeded our own expectations.” Follywood Productions’ anniversary party will feature a songwriters-in-the-round collaboration on the main stage with Stone, James Justin Burke (of James Justin & Co.), Campbell Brown (of Gaslight Street), Stratton Lawrence (of Po’Ridge, also a City Paper contributor), and other special guests. —T.
