“Hi 17 SOUTH, Every person that I have talked to that had been in attendance at the Gala Southeastern Spine Institute Party has offered no specific compliments about any other aspect of the party except the band. I want you to know personally how much all of us appreciated the great job you did. Being a sax player in the 70’s, I made a point of spending a lot of time in the ballroom that night listening to the band and was very pleased with your playing and especially the audience reaction. We have never seen that happen before at this event.”

-Dr. Don Johnson

“This is a much belated thank you for providing us with the most incredible entertainment for our wedding. 17 SOUTH was so accommodating in our requests and my husband and I were blown away. Not only did you provide beautiful ceremony music, but smooth jazz for our dinner and great reception songs to get everyone on the dance floor. We couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you again for contributing to our special day.”

all age groups. Your band gave an outstanding performance and played an integral part in making the wedding reception a huge success. My wife and I are still receiving comments about that “fabulous band” from the Low Country.”
