SOUTHBOUND STRUTT....Indiana's #1 Premier Southern Rock explosion! The band was originally formed in 1989 with lead vocalist JC, and two other close friends from the Jacksonville area. They started opening shows for a few biker events, and were noticed by the right people , and they were invited to kick off shows for such acts as Molly Hatchet, John Kay, Pat Travers , Dr Hook, Marshall Tucker Band, and one golden moment in 1991 with Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Never recording, or even wanting to, they were just out for a good time, and was lucky to know the right people .
The band disbanded in 1997 after the death of original drummer and San Diego native Nick Carboni, from a car accident , that also took the life of the driver that hit him.
J.C. has since brought back the vision of Southbound Strutt, and has brought together some of the best nationally experienced players to make it happen. The band performs a 90 minute concert that features not only the hottest Classic Rock covers , but some very well written original songs , keeping to the 70's Southern Rock ,Bluesy sound .
Aside from ORIGINAL songs like " Teach Her Well" , " Brick Soldier" , " Southern Pride" , & " They Sang Amazing Grace" . the band has added the best classic hit covers from the biggest legendary bands such as:
Molly Hatchet * Steppenwolf * Marshall Tucker Band * Skynyrd * Dr Hook The Eagles * Charlie Daniels * Ted Nugent * The Allman Brothers * Steve Miller Band * Alabama * .....and many more!
Not wanting to be known as just a southern rock band, they put together a show that is mixed with the hottest rock, classic rock, outlaw country, & blues sounds that brings back the classic 70's concert vibe.
Southbound Strutt is known as a biker influenced , rock & roll band, and family friendly .
