“Southbound 85 one of North Carolina’s premiere Country Party bands is ready to bring in 2013 at the Legendary Longbranch in Raleigh, NC. The evening is sure to be one to remember, you can tune in and check out the Worldwide Broadcast with Lee Cherry and APCountryRadio.com as we will bring you the action “LIVE.” Southbound 85 began as a vision of its owner and lead singer, Jeff Leonard, back in 2007. Jeff was a disc jockey for the Texas Two Step in Greenville, NC for sometime and then moved to Raleigh, NC to work for The Longbranch Saloon. Over many years, Jeff noticed that bands were missing the mark when it came to engaging the crowd and their song selection. So in order to fill that niche and to give clubs, festivals and others the quality entertainment they were looking for, Jeff decided to form a band of his own. The result was Southbound 85… Call 704.451.5343 for bookings! ”
