‘Roots, Rock, Blues, Rap, and Country influences merged together to form a toe tapping and head bobbing show you have to see! When brothers and friends starting combining their decades of musical performance and passion with Charlotte’s booming social scene, they discovered a recipe for music mash-ups that fans had never heard before. They took traditional bluegrass instruments, added beat dropping drums, a screaming hot ’52 telecaster, and hypnotizing lyrics and harmonies, and found their fans dancing, drinking, and grooving along like no other band in Charlotte!
Their life-long beloved friend, Sabrina Watt, booked the band for their first paying gig at a Cystic Fibrosis charity event. Without an official name, she dubbed them ‘The Accidentals’. As years went by, ‘The Accidentals’ formed a monthly happy hour every second Saturday at Sugar Creek Brewing Company on Southside Drive. Every second Saturday from 2:00 – 5:00 loyal fans came out to get transported from the mundane to the madness!
As ‘The Accidentals’ got tighter and the grooves got deeper, the boys headed to FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama to record some original tunes. There the history, the magic, and the famous water from the Tennessee River created a sound they are proud to call their own. During the production process, it was discovered that another ‘The Accidentals’ band existed and the boys were forced to change their name. They looked to the 2 things that brought them to that point (Sabrina Watt and Southside Drive) and Southside Watt was born.
Sabrina’s life ended far too soon, and she is deeply missed. Southside Watt will always remember her impact on this world, and a portion of the proceeds from our shows are donated to Cystic Fibrosis research in her honor.
So come out and see ‘The Greatest Band that Never Practices’, and be a part of what will truly be a unique, one of a kind show, that is not found anywhere else!
