“There must be something in the water...”

The Curt Towne Band formed on the westside of Jacksonville, FL. in 2013. Cutting their teeth and paying their dues the same way their brothers did back in the day. There is nothing like Southern Rock and Roll born on the westside of Jacksonville, Florida. and baptized in blackwaters of the Florida swamps! The CTB has been dedicated to writing, and performing original music since the beginning. 

Their first recordings featured a number of fierce, foot stomping hard driving songs; that let you know Southern Rock is still alive and well! this is included favorites such as "Whatcha Gonna Do" and "All or Nothin'" Their upcoming album will feature guest appearances. Along with their HIT single "Cyclone!"

The Curt Towne Band has made friends, and fans from around the world by performing their “All Original - Old School” brand of Southern Rock. With Curt Towne on lead guitar, Barry Rapp (Henry Paul Band) on lead vocals and keys, Greg “GT” Thompson on bass guitar, and Mike "Thunderfoot" Cansler on the throne behind the drums, along with Mrs. Carol Bristow-Zur (.38 Special and Lynyrd Skynyrd) as backing vocals. 

Curt and the band have been privileged to share the stage, and support their friends in Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, Blackberry Smoke, Van Zant, Montgomery Gentry, The Outlaws, Cody Jinks, the Marshall Tucker Band, and Black Stone Cherry.


They continue to be a rising star in the new era of Southern Rock, while embracing the traditions of those great bands who blazed the trail before them.

As Brother Curt says:
"Always keep it genuine - always keep it real!"
