Thirteenth Tribe is a Christian Hard Rock/Southern Rock group based out of N.C. They are a diverse group of individuals and musicians from different parts of the U.S. (up and down the east coast). The band consists of C.J. Ballard- Lead & Backing Vocals/Acoustic & Rhythm Guitar, Frankie Bauguess-Lead & Backing Vocals/Lead & Rhythm Guitar, Michael Nixon-Drums & Percussion, & Little Stevie Blue Shoes-Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals. The band was formed by Ballard, Bauguess, and Nixon with former bassist Jason Couch in 2010. After the departure of Couch in 2011, the band was reinvigorated with a new lineup and enhanced sound. With years of combined experience this band displays professionalism, musicality and hopefully most of all the Love and Gospel of God.
