South Six 5 (SS5) is a young, highly-talented, acoustic duo that has consistently performed throughout the Indianapolis area with over 200 shows the past three years. In the spring of 2011, SS5 began with four talented teen musicians from the Southside of Indy. Since then, they have performed (either as a band or an acoustic duo) all over Indianapolis, including the Miracle Ride, WAMM Fest, Radio Disney events, Relay for Life events, 500 Festival Mini Marathon, and the Indiana State Fair. SS5 has also performed at numerous colleges including Purdue University, Indiana University, and Ohio State. They have been highlighted in the Indianapolis Star, SOUTH Magazine, and the Daily Journal.

South Six 5 has travelled outside the Indy area to perform at Six Flags Great America and showcased during the CMA Fest in Nashville, TN. SS5 has also auditioned (by invitation) for Radio Disney’s “Next Big Thing” (N.B.T.).

In the fall of 2012, South Six 5 stepped out as an acoustic duo. Moving forward as a duo, the boys went on a “college tour” as they were booked at 20 Dance Marathons benefitting the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. SS5 was also selected to perform on the 3-week Teen Nation “Stand and Defend No Bully” Tour in the summer of 2013. Moving into 2014, South Six 5 co-headlined the January “Teen Nation Tour” in Texas.

In early 2014, South Six 5 auditioned (by invitation) for America’s Got Talent in Houston, TX. Over 25,000 auditioned for AGT, and South Six 5 was 1 of 380 acts that was invited to audition for the celebrity judges (Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, Mel B, and Heidi Klum) in Newark, NJ. America’s Got Talent Season 9 premieres May 27th, 2014.

Their first original song “Every Second of the Day” debuted live on WISH-TV Channel 8’s “Indy Style.” South Six 5 released two singles on iTunes in early 2013 … “Every Second of the Day” and “Wake Up Call.”
