• BIO:
Now one of the most notorious college-rock/party/cover bands on the east coast, and featured on Playboy Magazine's "Top Party Schools" college campus tour of 2012, The Southern Special Band has been rewriting the formula for performing live cover songs since 2010. One of only seven such bands in the entire country, the Southern Special creates modern mash-ups and unique "original" versions of classic frat-house party anthems and sing-alongs. No style or genre is off limits; from Bob Marley to Blink 182, from Steppenwolf to Green Day, The SSB is going to give every party-goer something that makes 'em wanna turn up and turn out.
