With roots deep in the Carolinas, South85 blends country, folk, southern rock, and bluegrass to give you a listening experience that you won’t soon forget. Driven by the original songwriting of Kathy Neal and the voice of Tracy Wyatt, South85 is in a classification all their own – radio worthy songs along with an atmosphere of a back-porch jam. The marked “cowgirl” attitude and lifestyle exemplified by both Tracy and Kathy is interwoven throughout songs of independence, celebration of the south, hope, and plain old fun. South85’s sound is influenced by southern rock legends like Marshall Tucker Band, the Black Crowes, cross-genre Americana artists Old Crowe Medicine Show, Gillian Welch, and the sweet southern classics such as Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn. The band may blend a rocking electric stratocaster with a banjo or ease an acoustic ballad with dobro and mandolin with their varied sounds and themes. CLICK HERE FOR THE FACEBOOK link
The band lineup has really just come together since the first of this year, with Lee Sharpe (Leebo) coming on board on drums, and Country Bill (Walpole) back in the mix. Chris Peace is doing a great job on guitar and harmony vocals, and there is nobody more solid than JoeW (Williams) on bass. It’s a great bunch of guys, and everybody really loves to play, so we’re excited about the possibilities…so many tunes, so little time. Leebo and Joe have been playing around town forever, but our musical circles did not overlap until fairly recently. Chris was one of my guitar students back in the 80s, he played in Sugarsmack in the 90s, but then left music for quite a few years…we reconnected about the time my last CD came out 2 years ago. Country Bill has been one of my very best compadres for many years…he played with Lenny Federal and the Federal Bureau of Rock and Roll back in the day, and we had an act for a while in the early 00s called Country and Western Bill…we hadn’t done much together over the past couple years, so it’s great to have him back on board in the Barbed Wires.

The Traffic Jam Band was voted “#1 Blues Band” by the readers of Foothills Spotlight Magazine in 2011. Our fans tell us we have the Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Gov’t Mule kind of vibe going on. And we are known for having special guests onstage to add to our already full sound. This band is unique for the area and they always deliver a high energy perfomance….!
May/18th/10pm/Free, The Monterreys after Downtown Shindig, Sponsored by Rogers Pest Control of Gaffney
Posted on May.05, 2012
Charlotte garage surf band The Monterreys break the mold. The Monterreys’ music may be based in surf rock, but the band breaks out of the garage with its infusion of Latin, sci-fi and lounge. The band might just be hitting its first anniversary in existence, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the skills to entertain. It’s hard to listen to the music and not picture a great Spaghetti Western playing in the background. – Jeff Hahne (Creative Loafing)
Hailing from Charlotte, N.C., The Monterreys serve up instrumental bliss sure to appeal to fans of early 1960s surf-rock and vintage spy-movie soundtracks. Twangy guitars meld with a percussive backbeat, creating a fun-filled and highly danceable sound that conjures up images of a bygone era when Dick Dale and James Bond were part of contemporary mainstream culture. – Dan Armonaitis (GoUpstate.com)
This show is brought to you by Rogers Pest Control. For your pest control needs give Josh Rogers a call for treatment or Inspection.

June 22nd/8pm The Kel and Steve Birthday Show featuring “The Antibodies” sponsored by Kelly and Steven Lewis. It’s their party and you’re invited
Posted on Apr.21, 2012
Lewis family cordially invites you to come out for the show as they celebrate their birthdays…On them. No presents as requested from the host, but do bring a friend. A Word from the band. We are a no-frills quartet. We are what you hear — the music, with many influences. The lyrics are thoughtful and sometimes quirky. From the touch of bluegrass in ABDUCTED to the grunge of DON’T BE QUIET to the beauty of JIMI. We’ve never been overly worried if you liked the music or not because if we didn’t like it, how could we put it out there? We enjoy performing live with energy, humor, theater and activism. Hope you’ll give the songs a listen.
