BIO

Southern Fryed is known as the Rocky Mountain Region’s most up-and-coming country acts! They bring a high-energy performance with their unique flavor of Rocky Mountain Country, deeply rooted in Texas Red Dirt and Southern Rock. Southern Fryed has been performing together for eight years, and have recently exploded onto the regional scene, becoming a must-see act throughout the Front Range. They deliver an interactive and powerful performance that not only leaves the crowd wanting more, but makes them feel like they’re part of the show! From heart-warming ballads to the latest Texas Country hits, their music variety speaks to everyone, packing the dance floor at every show! Past performances include: Sculleys Shooters in North Platte, Buckin Harleys in Denver, The Boot Grill in Ft Collins, headliner for the Kimball Farmer’s Day Concert, Bushwackers Dancehall & Saloon in Omaha, Denver Stock Show; opener for Cody Johnson, Granger Smith, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, Gary Allen, and Dwight Yoakam.... just to name a few. Southern Fryed released their debut album “bluecollartown” in 2016, receiving tremendous reviews from fans. Southern Fryed band members include: front man Russ Brown, Andy Woods on bass and vocals, Jack Porter on lead guitar and vocals, and Nate Hobbs on drums.

Front man Russ Brown, a North Platte NE native, has been serving in the US Air Force for 20 years. Early on, he competed in the Colgate Country Showdown, and was a semi-finalist for America’s Rising Stars. In 2005, he was signed by Music City Network out of Nashville as part of a promotional deal. After the company folded that year, Russ continued to write songs and follow his passion. He competed in the 2006 Galaxy of Stars competition, finishing fourth in the finals. In 2008, he formed the band known today as Southern Fryed.

Bass player Andy Woods, originally from Wheatland WY, is now a REALTOR® in Cheyenne. In his early years, he played drums in a rock band while in high school, traveling Wyoming and Nebraska. Following high school, Andy played in a variety of bands in Cheyenne until becoming a permanent member of Southern Fryed. Originally brought on as the drummer, the band needed a bass player, so Andy stepped up and has become a five-string fury.

Lead guitarist Jack Porter originated in Carpenter WY, and is a highly touted diesel mechanic in Cheyenne. He has played for various bands in the area. His extraordinary talent caught the eye of the band, and after six days with Southern Fryed, he made his debut performance at Cheyenne Frontier Days. Combined with killer riffs, he belts out a range of harmonies that are sure to impress!

Drummer Nate Hobbs is a newcomer to the band. By day, he is employed by Kustom Illusions, and is a member of the 67th Army Band. By night, he's an animal on the drums. A third-generation musician, he began playing drums in the fifth grade, and played in the Jazz Band in high school. Nate studied at the Army School of Music, and plays with the 67th Army Band out of Wheatland. Throughout his career, he's played with multiple country and rock bands, before being discovered by Southern Fryed. His powerful beats keep the fans coming back for more!
