Watch us play at a recent wedding reception


    Originally organized as a contemporary country band in 1980 in Greenville, South Carolina, SOUTHERN CRESCENT played the club circuit, as well as festivals and concerts, throughout the country during the '80s, performing both as headliners and as opening act for such national acts as Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Daniels Band, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Tams and many others. The band traveled full time for five of those years and many people still remember the band playing anywhere and everywhere in the upstate during that time.

    SOUTHERN CRESCENT evolved into a variety band in the mid '80s and released two albums during this period - "Train Time" in 1985 and "Peaches" in 1987. Their single release of "Peaches" was recommended in the October '87 edition of Billboard magazine.

    In late 1988, SOUTHERN CRESCENT came off the road and established itself as a wedding and private party band. Due to numerous requests for the band to start performing for the general public again, SOUTHERN CRESCENT began booking select public events in 2007.
