Spring Season Finale
Sunday in the Park presents The 484 South Band ringing their style of Southern Rock & Roots music. The 484 South Band began in 2005 when Keith Schultz and Twain Pigott began playing cover songs in local venues around the Baton Rouge area. Two years later the full band was created and began writing the original songs that would launch them into the world of indie Southern Rock. With chords of Blues, Southern Rock, Alt-Country, Americana and anything left on the table from breakfast or in the bottle from last night, the band has continued to write songs from their experiences and their hearts.
