Thread: Great Southern River band

Chris_Fiorin - 5/18/2020 at 07:01 PM

Greetings, brothers and sisters! I hope you're all doing fine in those critical times. I'd just like to introduce you all to my band Great Southern River. ABB is one of our main influences (with Mule, Skynyrd and ZZ Top). We released our first album last April 17th. We had to release it only online for now with no events and that really affected us badly. Anyway, if you can, please give it a try, share to your friends. We need support and it's free. The full album is available on all music platforms. Just follow us on Facebook, YouTube, Spotify. You'll help us a lot! Thank you and peace to all!

Love your tribute to the era, gotta say you are copping other band names - Great Southern has been done , your name is dancing pretty close to the copyright fire. Lots of River bands; so you skate on that,but -"Great Southern" . . . not your property. Great original name when Betts used it, for you, an unoriginal stolen tired old cliche.

Doubt you are coming back around, probably just hittin all the SoRock related chats to plug your group, so why am I bothering.

Instead of accusing people of stealing, or anything else you should get some information. All our pages explain that. We're from the southernmost state in Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, which can literally be translated to english as Great Southern River. Oh, but Betts used Great Southern for his band! So? There are thousands of bands with similar names. Did you accuse Allman Betts Band of using almost the same name of their fathers? I doubt it. So shouldn't any other band use the word 'band' since we had a band called The Band? And no, there is no other band with this exact name. We checked. It's ours.

Brer, the dude is just sharing his music. You're being a little harsh. Even if Great Southern River Band didn't have a legit reference to where they are, there are a ton of similar band names that salute the music they are inspired by. Even if there was another band with the same name, no one is chasing anyone across borders for a trademark infringement. There are so many similarly named regional or cover bands just in the US, I really don't see the big deal.

Don't pay any attention to it. Just someone being a dick. I'll check out your stuff and good luck to you and your band.

Yeah sorry was too harsh. I am sure if I announced my band name here with "Great Southern" in the title all the wonderful gentle ABB fans here would praise me for my originality.

@chris - am sorry brother, - very cool of you to check back. We get these Allmans tribute bands or folks selling whatever drop in advertise then vanish, like that outfit from Finland a while back

Thank you both! Like everything in life we'll always face support and bashing. I'm OK with that. No one got a 100% approval rate. Not even ABB! World is tough enough on new bands, but I do it because I love it. I'll just keep writing and playing. The road goes on forever, right?

Chris good job. I downloaded the album off of Amazon music. Really enjoyed some good southern rock music. I enjoyed Great southern river and The heart digger the most.
