The Southdowns are an independent rock band from Port Credit with a rootsy southern flavor and catchy, radio friendly melodies. They are inspired by a number of musical backgrounds - Hard Rock, Southern Rock, Blues and Country Music. The band is Jeff Vetere (Lead Vocals), Joe Bosi (Rhythm Guitar), Greg Florov (Drums), Nick Pickett (Bass), and Joey Bujold (Lead Guitar). Formed on Southdown Road in Mississauga Ontario (hence the name!) they began writing material when Jeff brought Joe together with a group of his high-school friends, to form their own distinct sound. Their music immediately stands out with heartfelt lyrics, melodies and strong riffs and a sound that is distinctly unique due to the diverse band members influences – Their ultimate aim is to inspire their listeners to recapture the love and passion of Rock and Roll. Southdown is currently hard at work in the studio with 5 time Juno nominated Producer and songwriter Mladen Alexander, recording a new album, to be released in early 2019.
