About
Gigmasters 2008 "Rising Star" Award Winner for Top '70's Band! Playing a tasty gumbo of southern flavored rockā€¦"Feel good music" plain and simple. The players in 8 Miles South have been wowing audiances around the Midwest for the last few years after playing with other groups for no less than 20 years apiece. Strong vocals,great harmonies, and stellar musicianship lay the foundation for a a memorable evening of fun and dancing. The full band is comprised of 7 pieces but can adjust to accomodate your budget.

When you look at who these players have shared the stage with from Albert King, Paul Butterfield, the Allman Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band, Delbert Mc Clinton, Credence Clearwater, Steve Miller, Alabama, Travis Tritt, Asleep at the Wheel, Ricky Skaggs just to name a few it becomes increasingly clear where their passion lies. They have also crossed such stages as Buddy Guys Legends, The House of Blues, The Allstate Arena and Ravinia if not at a festival or stage across the United States, Canada or Mexico.

There is something special that happens when these 7 spirits are playing together that you must experience for yourself. Make your next event a memorable one with 8 Miles South!
