Biography

THE 8-TRACKS:

SAVANNAH’S MOST ECLECTIC PARTY BAND
PLAYING THE BEST IN ROCK, COUNTRY & SOUL!

Over the course of nearly a decade, The 8-Tracks have become one of the most respected and in-demand Party, Club and Festival bands in the greater Savannah, Ga. area.

Each of the four esteemed members boasts well over two decades of professional stage and studio experience, having been in many notable original touring groups and having played on numerous acclaimed rock, country and blues records.

The band takes great pride in their unique and eclectic set list, which specifically avoids most tired and cliché party tunes and focuses instead on their own custom arrangements of rarely-heard classics and long-forgotten hits by many of the biggest names in pop, rock, R & B, soul, country and alternative music of the past 50+ years.

The 8-Tracks dig deep to rediscover great tunes that have fallen through the cracks and which deserve to be heard — and danced to!

A show by The 8-Tracks is anything but predictable, as approximately 80% of their repertoire is not performed by any other group in the area. With such an unusually broad scope of material, they appeal as much to teenagers and 20-somethings as they do to those in their 50s, 60s and even 70s.

It is not uncommon at their engagements to hear someone exclaim, “I can’t believe they play that old song — I haven’t heard that in 30 years!”

The group is known for being reliable, professional and easy to work with. They provide a full, top-of-the-line, professional PA system and stage lighting, and use only the finest new and vintage instruments for excellent tone.

Their instrumentation includes electric and acoustic guitars, piano, Hammond organ, bass and drums. All the members sing lead, and the band is known for their tight and creative vocal harmonies.

They have performed at the most popular nightclubs in the area, including:

(in Savannah)
The Mercury Lounge
The Jinx
Murphy’s Law Irish Pub

and others...

In addition to their local bookings, they regularly travel up to eight hours away from Savannah for private engagements from North Carolina to Florida.

They are now actively booking Private, Public and Corporate engagements far into the future. If you’re looking for a memorable, up-tempo, dance-oriented rock, soul and classic country party band for your next special event, look no further than The 8-Tracks!

We look very forward to hearing back from you, and hopefully we can work together to provide top-notch live musical entertainment for your event!
