South of 7 is a seasoned, veteran dance band that has played in venues from Toronto to Westport and Amherst Island to Bon Eco; at fundraiser dances, Canada Day festivities, music festivals, campground jamborees, New Year’s celebrations, weddings and street parties; wherever organizers wanted their guests to have a great time. We play a broad variety of danceable favourites and can switch from old country standards to rock and roll anthems to pop music hits or new country sensations based on the wants of the audience.
The five members bring diversity and decades of performing experience to the show. Keith Flood provides lead vocals and guitar while Dan Johnston carries the rhythm section on bass and adds some vocals. Paul Stacey is a much sought after saxophone player who gives the band the capability of performing a wider variety of music. Percussion is handled by Kevin McCracken and organ/piano elements are covered by Mark Oliver.
