Artist or in person, Jim Quick (lead vocals, keys, trumpet, harmonica) is the kind of guy you genuinely want to call a friend. With the charm only a true Southerner can possess, he brings his talent to the stage with a quick-witted, knee-slapping sense of humor coupled with the clear sincerity of his love for his craft.

“I want my music to be a bridge for many genres; a place where traditional and contemporary music can unite. But, I do love the pure emotion and simple-yet-deep concepts of country music. I’m a Southern boy and it all hits home; the lyrics and roots of the music—from the melodies to chord progressions—seem to strike an ancestral nerve with me.”

His devoted fans, the “Coastline Crazies,” know it’s hardly luck that allows Quick’s path to cross with musical greats. It’s his musical gumbo and unadulterated energy that keeps fans coming back for more. And, with the release of DOWN SOUTH and his introduction to country radio, Quick is certain to add more “Crazies” to the mix!

Gary Lowder & Smokin' Hot are known as a Sour, R& B party band based our of North Myrtle Beach, S. Carolina.  Their musical repertoire covers decades of hits from your favorite artists and genres including soul, R & B, funk, 50's & 60's and Beach Music.

TOO MUCH SYLVIA has the desire and ability to please and play something that everyone will enjoy. Their fun, contagious personalities will touch all. Whether it’s a low key dinner setting, an energetic party, a festival with all ages attending, the band easily adapts.  By NOT working from a “set list”, 2MS has the ability to “feel the mood”, pace the song selection and provoke audience interaction to reach a peak at the right moment. The experience and professionalism only adds to the ease of working with TOO MUCH SYLVIA.

TOO MUCH SYLVIA features FOUR lead vocalists that are always having fun – Eddy with his crystal clear voice to Steve’s funky, soul sound and Rick’s scratchy rock & roll, pretty much have the vocal styles covered.  Their vocal blend and harmonies are, really . . . a major part of the 2MS sound.  Combine all the above, with their tight, tasteful musical arrangements and Drummer Don’s rhythms, makes the groove appealing to dancers at a comfortable sound level for everyone.
