The Premier Bluegrass Band in Western
New York, Pennsylvania, and Northern Ohio
South 79 is the culmination of many years of work and expertise all coming together into one project. From competition musicians, to strict traditional bluegrass musicians, the people involved in this band have come together and make a sound that is unlike other bluegrass bands. It has the hard train-like drive that you want in a bluegrass band that also certainly does not lack in the vocal department, a common phenomenon with bands of exceptional instrumentalists. The singing and roaring harmonies are what make South 79 a premiere force to be reckoned with in the Northeastern region bluegrass communities.
