What does SoCo love about Wild Bill’s Roadhouse? They’ll tell you…“We love Wild Bill’s big stage, large dance floor, and Stuart is a great person to work with. Having been a musician himself, Stuart knows how to take care of the bands and he provides them with the atmosphere needed to put on a rockin’ showcase gig. Of course, people always come to party SoCo style!!” – SoCo. SoCo is scheduled to play at Wild Bill’s every 4-6 weeks.
“While performing at Wild Bill’s, one of the members stayed with us in the crowd as much as on stage. We were invited to sing and come up on stage and dance and we felt like members of the band. Was a fun night, can’t wait for SoCo to come back!” – Craig M.
If you’re wondering what SoCo means, it’s short for Southern Company. When the band first came onto the scene in 1992, they had a saying and it was, “There’s no company like Southern Company”. In 2002, they shortened their name to SoCo.
No show is too big or too small for Soco. They play clubs, outdoor festivals, and national events. You can find the list of national acts that they’ve toured on their website. They do a lot of benefits and festivals each year. Their favorite festival is called, Shakin at the Station. This event is held in their hometown of Staunton every summer. Every Thursday night, from May through August, thousands of people come together in the wharf part of downtown Staunton to hear live music. Proceeds from each event goes to a different charity.
