I decided to do this show after the amazing time I spent with local band True Soul at the Bucaneer Lounge this past weekend! Myself along with Vonda Gainer decided to see them in their element because they perform at the Bucaneer frequently. You may ask yourself why is she hypeing them and I will tell you it is because PC is sleeping on this local band. I first saw Glenn (lead singer) and someone on guitar over a year ago on I believe it was on Don Arias's show Wakin' up with Don on Fox 28 and he sang Sitting on the dock of the Bay by Wilson Pickett. I loved it! I first caught them live at Fri Fest last year and they had me at Sarah Smile which is one of my all-time favorites. I liked their Facebook page and began to keep up with their schedule. This phenomenial band is local so we don't have to take a ride to see them. They are probably PC's best kept secret! What I do know that this is hard to break into anything areound here. This is a tricky area therefore we have to support one another. Sometimes it is all about connections. True Soul is an awesome band and if you appreciate live music then this is the group for you. Glenn is the lead and has crazy vocals, Street is the drummer and a beast, Perry is on keyboard and a sax, and JC is on guitar. I forgot who is on bass guitar but he is bad too. They sing a wide range of songs and I love how they put their spin on it while still doing the original song justice. I met a young man who I am not going to name right now because you will know about him soon enough but he sang acapella with no warm up out in the cold and I will say this he got next. Stay tuned! On April 17 True Soul will be a Club Deja Vu for the Sir Charles Show! This is huge and some of you who are not familiar with them will get to see. They will be also be a Friday Fest this Friday. So let's support them and any other local acts!

They play original songs written by the band with a blend of Country/Rock. The combination of lyric and music continues to grow the band’s fan base. Brothers, cousins, and Friends they hail from Columbia, Tennessee, just forty miles south of Nashville.. “Buck Sixx’s debut record is one of the strongest freshmen records I’ve ever heard. There truly isn’t a bad song on the record and there isn’t a song that would turn fans off. Buck Sixx successfully showcases who they are as individuals, as a group, as musicians, as vocalists, and as songwriters and it’s a showcase that is uniquely fresh. It’s a package that will allow them to be recognized on many different avenues in the country music industry.” – Thatsmusictome.com
