SouthernGarageBands.com is a Web site that is the home to all things Garage Band-related in the Southern USA from the 60’s and 70’s. If you have memories of dances, proms, hops, raves or other music-fueled times from the days when real live bands drove the beat and the feet, and the performers might have been your friends or someone you knew, then this is the place to find them again.
We have pictures, names, venues, posters, tickets, business cards, vans, hearses and newspaper clippings. You can find out who was in which band, the places they played and when they started and broke up. You’ll find Fenders, Gibsons, Hagstroms, Ludwigs, Silvertones, Ampegs, Epiphones and microphones. Keyboards from Farfisa Combo Compacts to Hammond B3’s with multiple Leslie Tone Cabinets. From flat-tops to duck-tails, bouffants to pixies, Beatle-cuts to shags and all hair styles in between. Weejuns, Gants, Bee-Bops aka Saddle Oxfords, C-Buckle Belts and Gold Cup socks. Jeans and T-Shirts, Pony-Tails and Bee-Hives. Dives to Drive-Ins. Broken guitar strings and tugging heart-strings. It’s all here and there’s more and more coming. Keep up with us and those days when the music was real and the sweat poured down your brow as you broke out your latest moves on the dance floor.
