South of K is an acoustic band that many of you will recognize as a neighbor, family member, or even a long time friend! Each member resides or has close ties to Kure Beach, NC. Dennis Cooper, Aaron and Jamie King, and Joey Canady each have a long history of performing in varying music genres, but their love for their brand of bluegrass and their strong friendship has brought them together to form... South of K. What you will experience with this band is more than merely music; it's "friendship manifested in music!"
