THE MERCEDES BENZ OF TRIBUTE BANDS
Playing the best of Janis Joplin's repertoire and other psychedelic & blues exotica, Southern Comfort excels at giving the kind of show that brings to life Janis' own performances.
With traditional southern acoustic blues and classic obscurities rarely heard performed since the 60s, the experience is complete and unparalleled.
Making beautiful music together for over fifteen years, the band performs all styles of music including original material, classic rock, folk, blues, psychedelic 60s, world music, and much more.
With origins dating to '91, the SCBB has been making music locally and regionally for over ten years. Fronted by vocalist Michelle Griffin, an Alabama native, her four octave range has always been the signature sound for the group. Classically trained, and with a degree in theatre earned before the age of twenty, her look and sound has always drawn comparisons of Janis Joplin by those who hear and see Montgomery Alabama's new Blues Queen.
The band is also led by Shane Earnest, a Texas-transplant to Alabama, on guitar and occasionally bass as well. His blues stylings have been likened to Robin Trower; he credits the "magic blues-beans" for his most recent influence, eaten while dining in a blues bar in Memphis, Tn.
SoComfy has enjoyed entertaining people using all styles of music, from folk to heavy rock. The classic rock and psychedelic music of the 60's & 70's was always a standard in their sets, and after fielding constant requests for the music of Janis Joplin & BigBrother, they have been performing a tribute to this icon of the SF sound.
Their show includes many of Janis' greatest hits, as well as her early work with Big Brother & The Holding Co, and even her first recordings of folk songs played in Texas clubs. A high energy act, they do their best to give the show Janis would want to give, to the delight of die-hard Janis fans as well as those who are new to hearing her.
