Nothing puts the icing on the cake of a great wedding like a kick-your-shoes-off, granny-dancing, hot-and-sweaty dance party. If “fun” is a must on your wedding to-do list, then Southern Lovin’ is the band for you. The 2nd Athens NotWedding was such a blast thanks to these party animals!
“These guys (and gal!) are the perfect group to get your wedding party happening! Not only are they completely talented musicians, but have wonderful personalities that make it such a joy to work with them – love their ability to keep a party rocking!”
The Athens NotWedding Team
Short description of the personality of the band.
Southern Lovin’ is a band that represents what makes the south unique—a love of honest and memorable celebration. The south balances simplicity and elegance in a way that can only be understood through experience, and Southern Lovin’ takes the same approach when providing live music. Whether you are celebrating a wedding, hosting a backyard barbeque, or a corporate event, Southern Lovin’ offers the nuance and variety the south appreciates. From the classic jazz standards of Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, to early rock n’ roll of the Beatles and The Band, and the south’s own Merle Haggard and Tim McGraw, Southern Lovin’ provides live music to help make your celebration full of songs and life.
What is the most fun part about playing weddings?
It’s a privilege to be a part of the most important day in a couples’ life. And it’s great to watch people dance! It’s a sign of a great celebration.
Who or what is your musical inspiration?
Our biggest inspiration is the Beatles. In our opinion, they’re the best example of a band that could keep people dancing. They would often play for six hour sets, and would have people dancing the whole time, because they knew how to engage a crowd.
What’s the best first dance song you’ve ever played at a wedding?
“Mid-July” by Sam Lewis
Favorite all-time song
“Yesterday” by the Beatles
What is your favorite part of The NotWedding experience?
We loved being a part of The NotWedding because they provide such a genuine atmosphere for everyone involved, especially the guests. The NotWedding team isn’t simply putting on an event, they want to help couples celebrate the new season of life.
