17 South Band

One of the best party bands in Charleston, SC!



"Michael and I wanted to send our sincerest gratitude to you and all of the members of 17 South! We could NOT have chosen a better band to play at our wedding. You guys out performed any band we've seen. Your performance went beyond our highest expectations and hopes. We felt you were able to set the tone for the evening! There was a sense of professionalism and class. We are truly blessed that you were there for us on our special night. Also, I feel the need to tell you how special your rendition of 'America' was to us (and all in attendance). We will always hold that moment and memory with us. Thank you kindly for everything!"

-Michael and LIndsey, June 1st, 2012

- Parke Shields/Bowen's Island Party


“Wow! Your charisma, talent, and ability to gauge your music to the pulse of the guests is the mark of true professionals. Your rendition of ‘Can't Take My Eyes Off of You’ was perfect for the Bridal Dance.”
