“For the love of the music, nothing else matters!"805 South (8-oh-5 South) was in Los Angeles, now in Nashville. Is a blues rock band that is a fusion of original Memphis Rhythm and Blues, Nashville song writing, southern rock guitar, groove pumping drums and smooth bluesy bass lines. If "Black Crowes", "Etta James", and "Cream" had a baby than 805 South would be that love child. They have been called "Stevie Ray Vaughan" with chicks and female "Jimi Hendrix".
805 South started as a song. Candy (Left: Lead Vocal/Songwriter) and Lisa (Right: Lead Vocal/Rhythm Guitar/Songwriter), the founders, wrote the song “805 South” while taking a trip to the San Diego Zoo. After much thought, they named the band 805 South and renamed the song "Woke Up". When they got back to LA, they created recordings containing a cappella sung melodies, to find a guitarist, bassist, and drummer.
805 South has performed live at The Joint, B.B. Kings Club - Universal City Walk, The Airliner, The Cat Club, Studio Suite, Universal Bar and Grill, The Derby, On the Rox, House of Blues, and The Mint to name a few.
805 South songs are available for film/TV. Their influences are blues and rock artists such as Black Crowes, Ben Harper and Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, and Bonnie Raitt. 805 South “Pay To Play” full length CD released in 2009.
