The Southern Gothic February 9, 7:30 pm
with The Grand Ole Uproar in The Crown!
Since 2007, The Southern Gothic original members Connor (lead vox/guitar/ piano), Spirko (fiddle/ guitar/ piano/ vocals), and Shawn Thacker (drums) have been bringing their unique brand of sunbaked, road-worn country, southern rock & soul to countless stages and fans across the US. Currently based in Nashville, TN, ’SoGo’ has shared stages with such artists as Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Big & Rich, Zac Brown Band, Styx, Uncle Kracker, Corey Smith, Gloriana, ZZ Top, Heart, and more. The diverse nature of the artists with whom they’ve toured reflects the diversity of the band’s sound. “It works,” says Connor in regard to the varying nature of the audiences. “We’ve played to country crowds, rock crowds, young crowds, old crowds. We’ve played to jam band audiences and we’ve played bluegrass festivals. The response with all of them has been fantastic.”
Fantastic enough for Billboard Magazine to notice. TSG was named “Artist on the Verge” in Billboard’s Best Bets after debuting #1 on its Heat Seekers List. 2013 saw the band’s hit single “Sheets Down” stay on the fan-voted CMT Pure Countdown for 4 weeks, resulting in 60k views on YouTube. The band used this momentum to play hundreds of shows over thousands of miles in the next few years, perfecting their high-energy live show and growing their loyal fan base.
Locked and loaded for 2020, The Southern Gothic will hit the ground running with a highly anticipated new EP, ‘Burning Moonlight’, a revamped live show, and Winter tour coming to a stage near you!

Cale, as well as many other (and older) songs and artists in the American tradition.
Since 2010, the Grand Ole Uproar has frequently toured the Southeast. The Uproar has shared the stage with artists like Grammy Award winning Texas trio Los Lonely Boys, Zach Deputy,The Hackensaw Boys, PALEFACE,The Deadstring Brothers, The Corbitt Brothers, Dr. Bacon, Boy Named Banjo, Caleb Caudle, The Way Down Wanderers, Empire Strikes Brass, and Cosmic Charlie.
