The Southern Comfort Band was formed with one goal in mind: To bring true American Southern Rock music back to the people who love it. The boys in Southern Comfort believed there was a void in the music world and felt it was their duty to fill it.
The band prides itself on its authentic reproductions of classic Southern Rock anthems from bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Outlaws, Molly Hatchet, and others. The band's dedication to the music is unparalleled, which led them to rehearse tirelessly for 14 months before ever taking a stage. Once the band got started though, they were a runaway train, playing casinos, biker rallies, fairs, and other events all over the Eastern United States. The band even had the opportunity to share the stage with the legendary Marshall Tucker Band for just their third show. No matter where the band has played, audiences have been awed by The Southern Comfort Band's dead on musicianship and stage show. As one observer said, "If you close your eyes, you'd swear it was the real thing."
The band is led by the dual-guitar fireworks of Ricky Marshall and David Paul Travis, who fantastically recreate the guitar harmonies that are the foundation of the Southern Rock sound. Lead vocalist Don Barnes Sr. has been called "the lost Van Zant", he commands the stage with powerful lead vocals. The Reverend Chris James channels the late Billy Powell on keyboards and the rhythm section is locked down by bassist Stone E. Lee and drummer Fritz R. Kana.
The Southern Comfort Band is dedicated to the music and to its ever growing legion of fans. The band is a true Southern Rock experience that is not to be missed and surely will not be forgotten. Right place, Right time, Right People, Right Songs. The Southern Comfort Band.
