Default Your Favorite BAND from the State of South Carolina

SC has been home to a lot of really great musical artists who were born
and/or raised here in Palmetto State. Just wondered who your favorite "BAND"
was that has roots in SC.

Was talking to a friend this morning at work about this, and he immediately
came up with the name ALABAMA. .. we got into a discussion as to whether
they could be considered a true SC Band seeing as how they were not from
SC, but simply spent some time in Myrtle Beach as the house band at the
Bowery before signing a recording contract.

What I want to know is:
Who is your favorite band who originated / formed and performed here in
SC. There are quite a few from the State, But I'm listing in this poll the
most famous Bands, and leaving a "Other / Write In" selection as well.

BANDS ONLY .... .who's your favorite ?

I think Crossfade is also from SC (maybe should have added them to the
list). If they were from SC, they are/were a band with some degree of
fame as well.

Crossfade is from Columbia, at least according to their website/facebook page.


Of the band's listed and mentioned, my choice would be Hootie & the Blowfish. Given the choice, I would listen to Edwin McCain over all of them.

Band of Horses definitely up there and have to include Captain Easy and Josh Robert's and the Hinges. Ryan Monroe of Band of Horses and Josh Roberts were the front men of Captain Easy...a lot of talent in that band.

Default Re: Your Favorite BAND from the State of South Carolina

I listed he most popular / famous over each of those band's "lifespan" or
I guess more appropriate, "prime". Some of the ones listed as "other" I
haven't heard of, so I'm guessing they're still young / early in their career.

Of the ones I listed above, I picked The Marshall Tucker Band. Tough choice
between Hootie and the Blowfish and M/T, because of the fame each had,
and the attention each brought to the State of SC. Of those two however,
I wasn't really into H&TB. It was at a time in my life where I had pretty much
conceded that Rock as I knew it had ended, and Grung and Frat Rock had
taken over Blues and R&B based Rock. I did like the hits that H&TB produced,
and still greatly respect what they did as a band, and what Darius Continues
to do in his Country Career. Love that he's sticking close to his roots and
promoting the state whenever he can.

I'm a product of the 60s/70s and was around to see the beginnings and the
Apex, as well as the decline of The Marshall Tucker Band. The original lineup
was as good as it gets, and they helped kickoff and spread that early 70s
wave of Southern Rock and made a name for themselves as giants in that
genre. Love me some Beach Music as well, and the Swingin' Madallions and
Maurice and the Zodiacs were to HUGE names in that era, in this poll, my
favorite has got to be MTB !

IGod from Myrtle Beach back in the late 90s is my pick. They played their final show last year but weren't active for a while before that.

More currently, I like Cary Ann Hearst (I like her better without her husband, although I like his old band The Films, too). Band of Horses are pretty good.

Back to the old days, Sqwearl was great in the early 90s, but the recordings don't age well. Still, those early shows were good stupid fun. Two of them are dead now, sadly. Stretch Armstrong was a great hardcore band. David was one of my best friends in college, and I still talk to him some.

For one summer in 1997, Crankbait was the best band. But then the original guitar player just split town or something. They would play this tiny room in the back of Horse and Cart in Charleston, and it was epic stuff.

Finally, I thought Lay Quiet Awhile was a really good band. The Independents were fun. Probably some others I'm forgetting. Like all the Chris Bickel bands. Obviously, I'm stuck in the 90s with my selections, but those were my glory days and it all felt more interesting back then.

James Brown should probably be mentioned, as well as some older legends like Pink Anderson and Reverend Gary Davis. Different conversation, really.

Growing up on James Island in the 60s/70s, I did love some beach music. Swinging Medallions were great, but The Tams and Jr Walker (although not SC connected) played the Pier at Folly Beach quite a bit (from my recollection). Nothing like 60s music to this day - the British Invasion, all that great anti-war music and the Sound of Motown!

One genre I never did like was Southern rock – Marshall Tucker, Charlie Daniels, 38 Special, Lynyrd – horrible, just horrible.

And Band of Horses mentions their favorite football team – the Georgia Bulldogs – so they are automatically disqualified!

Sourwood honey. My high school days. Chris Conner's follow up band The South was gonna be really good if he hadn't got sick and died from lung cancer. Him, the drummer from treadmill trackstar, the guitarist came from s_tribe, and Nicole haggenmeyer were getting good. Their one album monsters in the kudzu was really good.

Marshall tucker probably gonna get my vote though
