Southbound is a well-established, well-known commodity around Ohio! We play a unique selection of great memory evoking Classic Rock/Deep Classic Rock songs, as well as a mix of Modern Classic Rock/Roots Rock and Southern Rock songs sprinkled in for good measure! Add in our original songs, and you’ve got a recipe for a great mix of music.
Southbound features 5 accomplished singers focusing on strong vocal harmonies and iconic guitar riffs, which lends itself to covering all the best Rock vocal bands throughout time. We work hard to ensure all the songs we play are true to the original versions, with the occasional twist that only Southbound can pull-off. Don’t take our word for it though, check us out on our Facebook page or on YouTube, or join us at one of our upcoming events to see for yourself. If you like us, contact us and we’ll come play your next big event.
