Down South band at Brackley Festival of Motorcycling 2018
Down South is an upbeat and entertaining 5 piece covers band hailing from Milton Keynes. We play an eclectic mix of Rock and Pop songs including artists such as Dire Straits, Prince, Tom Petty, Oasis, Kings of Leon, ZZ Top, GnR, AC/DC and the like.
The band initially started as a group of friends from South Africa (Hence the name) but as time has gone on, members have come and gone, and band has now settled with the current line-up which consists of 2 original members in the form of Murray McLachlan (vocals) & Hayden Oakes (bass) along with 3 very good English friends, James Ives (guitar) Wayne Martin (guitar) & Terry Wiggins (drums).
For us, playing music is the tip of the iceberg. We don't just want people to enjoy our music, we want people to enjoy our performance. We love to get people singing and dancing along and our audiences love our engaging and informal approach.
