Happy 2017 Southbound Nation! Just a quick update to let you know what the band's been up to since we went on hiatus at the end of the year. In a nutshell, we've put in a ton of work and had a ton of fun. By the time we return to the stage in March, we plan to have a minimum of one complete new set of music to play for you...the only question that remains is, will it be a 10, 12, 15 song set? Will it be more? Whatever the case may be, these new songs will have you smiling and nodding in appreciation. They're songs that will take you back to a place and time...to a guy or girl you used to know...to a car you used to drive...or to a feeling too long forgotten. We won't spoil the surprise by disclosing titles, but what we will tell you is that we've never been more excited to come out and debut music for you. So while we'll still have all that great Southern Rock in our repertoire and at our disposal, we're stretching our wings without the burden of conforming to any singular convention, musically. Is Southbound a Southern Rock band? Classic Rock? Deep Classic? Modern Classic? Roots Rock? Blues, etc.? The answer is...we're all of those things, and the early results from rehearsals have us chomping at the bit to get our 2017 schedule going. And speaking of schedule, we continue to add dates for '17, and chances are good you'll be seeing us at some new venues this year. Stay tuned to the web and Facebook pages for all the details as they become available. See ya'll real soon!

City of Fairborn
Independence Day Downtown Block Party
We are honored to be invited back for Fairborn, Ohio's Independence Day Celebration 2017! Join us in the middle of downtown, at Main Street & Central Avenue for crafts, carnival rides, lots of great food and of course, live music from Southbound plus a complete line-up of bands preceding our 8:00 p.m. set. It's good, clean, family fun to celebrate the birth of our great nation, and one of the best Independence Day events in the state.
The event starts with the Downtown Block Party on Monday, July 3rd, then the following day, enjoy the city's Independency Day parade, followed by more fun at Community Park East for more live music, food and some of the best fireworks you’ll see, ever. The City of Fairborn does it right, but don't take our word for it. Make your plans now and come find out for yourself.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Greene County Fair
The Greene County Fair... family fun since 1839! As if there weren't enough reasons to take the family to one of the state's best and longest-running county fairs - agricultural exhibits, harness racing, tractor pulls, rides, games and of course, all the great food on the midway...! The fair also offers superb entertainment on its outdoor stage throughout the week's events. Southbound is honored to be included in this year's schedule of bands and to bring our music to our own backyard. We hope you'll join us for our show on the 31st, and also enjoy all the wonderful festivities the fair offers.
