Do you believe in miracles? Do you believe in the ways of magic? Rumours does!

Rumours, the Southeast’s premier Fleetwood Mac tribute band, will perform at the Boykin Center on Friday, Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m.

Based in Atlanta, Rumours captures the energy of Fleetwood Mac at the height of the band’s career by blending perfect harmonies, precise instrumentation and a visually engaging stage show.

The six members of Rumours are professional musicians with experience across a wide spectrum — folk, blues, country, rock and everything in between. Rumours’ diverse background, coupled with a professional approach to the craft, has propelled them to their status as a highly regarded tribute band.

Band members Mekenzie Jackson (lead vocals), Doug Easterly (lead and backing vocals, guitar and percussion), Alex Thrift (lead guitar), Adrienne Cottrell (keyboards, lead and backing vocals), Jerry Tew (bass) and Daniel Morrison (drums) have recreated the Mac experience for a loyal fan base across the eastern United States — selling out venues like The Georgia Theater in Athens, Georgia, and Daryl’s House in Pawling, New York, and playing to packed House of Blues venues in Orlando, Florida; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and New Orleans.
